COVID-19

The Pumba Collection Disclaimer of Liability:

Your safety is of paramount importance to us. We have implemented various COVID-19 related safety measures, processes and procedures (“Infectious Diseases: Health and Safety Protocol”) with our staff and teams to ensure we create an environment that is both safe and hygienic when you get us to collect test samples, which protocol was developed by taking guidance from guidelines and hygiene policies prescribed and published by the World Health Organisation.

Your COVID -19 test samples will be tested by an independent third party that is not owned and / or managed by The Pumba Collection (“Third Party Service Providers”). Whilst all Third-Party Service Providers of The Pumba Collection have committed to implement similar processes and procedures as to our Infectious Diseases: Health and Safety Protocol to try and protect guests making use of their services, The Pumba Collection is not in a position to validate or dictate their health and safety protocols which will vary between Third Party Service Providers. As a result, we cannot confirm the standard to which Third Party Service Providers protocols adhere to and as such we cannot accept any form of liability (in the broadest terms) should you (or any member of your party) contract an infectious disease (including COVID-19) when using the services of a Third-Party Service Provider.

The same will apply in respect of public areas (i.e., landmarks, public venues, sightseeing venues, etc.) which you may wish to visit, The Pumba Collection nor Third Party Service Providers have any control over health and safety protocols followed at public areas or any action(s) of a member of the public which may cause an infection of an infectious disease.

As with any protocol the measure of success in implementing a process or procedure under a protocol will be determined by the level of compliance and adherence to the relevant processes and procedures prescribed by the relevant protocol. Whilst The Pumba Collection will ensure full compliance by its management, employees and contractors with the Infectious Disease: Health and Safety Protocol, The Pumba Collection cannot accept any liability in the event of a guest(s) contracting an infectious disease (including COVID-19) as a direct or indirect result of complying or adhering to The Pumba Collection’s Infectious Diseases: Health and Safety Protocol.
