Virtual Class Participant Policy

Participation Agreement: Please be aware that classes may be recorded for quality control and/or future marketing purposes. Your participation in the class implies your consent to potential recordings. Not all classes are recorded.

Maker District engages independent contractors as instructors for Maker District Social’s virtual classes. These instructors operate as independent entities and are not considered employees or affiliates of Maker District. Maker District maintains no control over the specific methods employed by instructors in delivering their classes.

Maker District does not provide a guarantee that participants will fully comprehend or master the skills taught during virtual classes. The acquisition of skills may vary among participants, influenced by individual effort and dedication.

Participants acknowledge that Maker District will not be held responsible for the participant's mastery of skills or understanding. The onus for active engagement, practice, and application of the skills learned lies with the participant.

By participating in Maker District Social virtual classes, participants explicitly release Maker District from any liability associated with the independent contractor status of instructors and the effectiveness of the learning experience.
