6. ACTS OF GOD
The Company is not liable for failure or delay in performance of the Company’s obligations under this Agreement if such failure or delay in performance is as a result of causes and/or circumstances beyond the Company’s reasonable control and without its fault or negligence, including but not limited to Internet outages, accident, illness, Acts of God (including fire, flood, earthquake, storm, hurricane, or other natural disaster) or of the Public Enemy, acts of war, acts of the government in its sovereign capacity, fires, floods, epidemics, quarantine restrictions, unusually severe weather, terrorist activities, nationalization, government sanction, blockage, embargo, labor dispute, strike, lockout or interruption or failure of electricity or telephone service. Should any such occurrence impede or delay travel and execution of any obligation under this Agreement, every reasonable effort will be made by the Company to mitigate, modify or alter this Agreement as to meet the stated and agreed upon obligations. The Company is not entitled to terminate this Agreement under Paragraph 3 (Stint) in such circumstances, except by mutual consent and agreement in writing pursuant to the Force Majeure provisions. If the Company asserts Force Majeure as an excuse for failure to perform the party’s obligation, then the Company must prove that it took reasonable steps to minimize delay or damages caused by foreseeable events, that the Company substantially fulfilled all non-excused obligations, and that the Participant was timely notified of the likelihood or actual occurrence of an event described in in this Paragraph 10. Should Force Majeure render the need for Company’s services null and void, Participant agrees to terminate the contract amicably and bear their own expenses incurred to date unless otherwise indicated or specified.
Participant hereby takes the following action for himself or herself, his or her executors, administrators, heirs, next of kin, successors, and assigns:
A. I waive, release, and discharge the Company and/or its directors, officers, employees, volunteers, sponsors, representatives, and agents, from any and all liability, including but not limited to, liability arising from the negligence or fault of the entities or persons released, for my death, disability, personal injury, property damage, property theft, or actions of any kind which may hereafter occur to me during use of the Services described in Paragraph 1(a).
B. I indemnify, hold harmless and promise not to sue the Company or persons mentioned in this document from any and all liabilities or claims made as a result of participation in this Service, whether caused by negligence or otherwise.
C. Participant understands that, while every reasonable precaution has been taken to promote safety, not every situation can be controlled. Therefore, Participant assumes all of the risks of participating in the Services and agrees to indemnify, hold harmless, and promise not to sue the Company or any party or entity conducting a specific event or activity on behalf of the Company and release those parties from any and all liabilities or claims made as a result of Participant’s attendance and participation in the Services. Under no circumstances will the Company be held liable for Participant’s injury, illness or death or any loss or damage of Participant’s personal belongings resulting from my participation in the Service. Participant agrees that if he or she has any medical or psychological conditions that may hamper him or her from fully and healthfully participating in the Services, the Company retains the right to ask that Participant not participate in portions of or the entirety of the Services.
By participating in the Services, Participant understands that any testimonials given may be used by the Company. Participant agrees that the Company and its assigns have the right and permission to use such testimonials for any purpose without further compensation, permission, or notification.
