Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long are waiver forms retained?

As long as your account is active, we retain all data - nothing ever gets deleted, and our databases are backed up to protect against possible data loss. If you cancel your account, we retain everything for a period of 30 days so you can download a copy of everything. There is an export feature that will generate a zip file that contains all waivers for any date range you choose. The zip file contains all the waivers as PDF files, and includes html web page table of contents you can view to navigate through all the waivers. Learn more about exporting here

Q: Are Online Waivers Legal?
