Event disclaimer (EN)

Before you were allowed to join our group, you had to accept Meetup’s Terms of Service. One of the most important sections in these terms as an Event Host, is Section 6 which refers to liability. Here is a link for your review. In simple language, you and only you, are responsible for your safety at all times if you participate in an event with this group. By joining an event you are also accepting the list below. This second check has to be done, because of Catalan legislation (Decret 333/2002 Art. 7), just to make clear that you accept to be a co-organizer of the event.
