Off The Wall in Coconut Creek is collecting drivers license information, home addresses and telephone numbers. It also claims to have no liability for any injury that may arise from negligence in the trampoline facility.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The questions continue into Coconut Creek’s “Off The Wall” trampoline center, following BocaNewsNow.com’s report Sunday that the center is requiring — and storing — drivers license information of parents whose children use the facility.
Neither the company’s owner — iJump, LLC of Hollywood — nor General Manager Steve Chusid — have responded to questions posed by BocaNewsNow.com concerning the legality and safety of the data collection.
But BocaNewsNow.com has learned that the data is possibly being routed out of Coconut Creek to North Carolina’s Pathfinder Software Company in Roxboro. A company representative has not yet responded to a BocaNewsNow.com inquiry.
Providing a drivers license number, home address and telephone number is a requirement of Off The Wall for children to be allowed to play — but it may violate state statutes concerning private drivers license information.
There are also new questions being asked concerning the legitimacy and legality of the waiver adults are required to sign. The waiver appears in small type on the web page where adults are required to provide their drivers license to give approval for their kids to play.
Legal professionals tell BocaNewsNow.com that there is no waiver from lawsuits arising from gross negligence, although “Off The Wall” claims to be demanding a release from anything that could ever happen in its facility.
