Setting up your online waiver

The online waiver is a liability release that all clients must agree to either upon registration or when booking your services for the first time. By default, the liability release is disabled and empty.

Please be aware that WellnessLiving makes no claims as to the effectiveness or enforcement of your liability release. Consult a legal expert in your region for more information about the proper use of this feature and the rights of your business and your clients.

Your clients (or the guardians of any clients who are minors) can sign the liability waiver by writing their name in the signature box using a mouse or signature pad connected to your computer. To view our recommended signature pad, see Purchasing Hardware from WellnessLiving.

To learn how your clients can sign your online waiver, see Signing an online waiver.
