When signing in to participate in the Repair Café you are confirming that you have read, understand and will respect our House Rules.
The work carried out in the Repair Café is performed free of charge on a voluntary basis by the repair experts at hand.
Visitors offering items for repair are encouraged to carry out repairs themselves where possible, with expert guidance.
The fact that the repairs are being performed by unpaid volunteers reflects the allocation of risks and limitation of liability. Neither the organisers of the Repair Café nor the repair experts are liable for any loss that may result from advice or instructions concerning repairs, for the loss of items handed over for repair, for indirect or consequential loss or for any other kind of loss resulting from work performed in the Repair Café. The limitations set forth in these house rules shall not apply to claims declared justified on the basis of liability arising by virtue of applicable consumer protection legislation which cannot be lawfully superseded.
A voluntary donation is greatly appreciated. Any use of new materials will be paid for separately.
Visitors offering broken items for repair do so at their own risk.
Experts making repairs offer no guarantee for the repairs carried out with their help, and are not liable if objects that are repaired in the Repair Café turn out not to work properly at home.
Repair experts are entitled to refuse to repair certain items.
Repair experts are not obliged to reassemble dismantled appliances that cannot be repaired. Visitors to the Repair Café are solely responsible for the tidy removal of broken items that could not be repaired.
To cut down on waiting periods during busy periods the Repair Café team may be obliged to limit visitors to a maximum of one broken item each.
Photographs could be taken at each session for publicity purposes. Please inform the Meet & Greet team should you prefer not to be included.
