WAIVER / ASSUMPTION OF RISK / RELEASE OF LIABILITY

You agree to assume all risks of participating in the Convention and release PPG from any liability for loss, damage or injury (including disability or death) to your person and/or property while attending, participating in, or becoming involved with the convention. You specifically make the following representations and assurances to PPG, acknowledging that PPG would not permit your participation in the convention without receiving such representations and assurances:

I wish to participate in a PPG Convention subject to the terms and conditions herein. I acknowledge and agree that participation in the Convention involves inherent risks.  PPG will use good faith efforts to conduct and manage the Convention, but I understand that it is not possible to make the Convention completely safe. I warrant and represent that I am sufficiently knowledgeable, skilled and/or informed regarding the Convention to properly and fully judge the inherent risks of the Convention.

ASSUMPTION OF RISK

I acknowledge and agree that the Convention involves potential risks of serious personal injury, disability or even death. I represent that I have sufficient physical fitness to participate in the Convention and I have no medical reason or impairment that might otherwise prevent me from participating in the Convention. If I know or should know of any condition or problem that might prevent me from safely participating in the Convention, I agree that I will immediately advise PPG and remove myself from the Convention.

In consideration of being allowed to attend, participate in or become involved with the Convention, I hereby assume full responsibility for my own safety and accept all known and unanticipated risks of loss, damage and injury (including death or disability) to myself and my property while attending, participating in or becoming involved with the Convention, regardless of whether or not such risks are attributable to the negligence of others. By assuming and accepting all known and unanticipated risks, I completely absolve, waive, discharge and release PPG and all its employees, advisors, consultants, members, contractors, organizers, operators, volunteers, sponsors or other persons affiliated with PPG and all facility staff, guests, fellow participants, landlords, owners, management companies and the like (collectively the “Indemnified Parties”) from any legal duty for my safety or any liability for my harm, to the maximum extent permitted by law.

RELEASE OF LIABILITY

In consideration of being allowed to attend, participate in or become involved with the Convention, I hereby agree to release, waive, discharge, hold harmless, defend and indemnify the Indemnified Parties from and against any and all liability, claims, demands, controversy, lawsuits or possible causes of action (“Claims”) that may accrue or arise from any loss, damage or injury (including death or disability) to my person and property that is in any way related to or arising in connection with my attendance at, participation in or involvement with the Convention, regardless of whether or not such Claims are attributable in whole or in part to any act, omission or negligence of the Indemnified Parties. I agree that the Indemnified Parties will not be legally responsible for any loss, damage and injury (including death or disability) to my person and property arising out of or in any way connected to the Convention, however caused and on any theory of liability whatsoever (whether in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability or otherwise), including but not limited to the Indemnified Party’s own negligence. Such defense and indemnification shall include all reasonable costs, expenses and attorney’s fees that may be associated with any Claims. I further agree that I will not cause, encourage, promulgate, support or cooperate with (unless such cooperation is judicially mandated) any Claims to be brought against the Indemnified Parties.

I understand that the above release and assumption of risk is intended to provide a comprehensive release of liability but is not intended to assert any defenses that are prohibited by law. The release and assumption of risk shall be enforceable to the fullest extent allowed by law. If any portion of the release and assumption of risk is held invalid, those parts that are not held invalid shall continue in full force and effect. The terms of the above release and assumption of risk shall apply to and be binding on myself, my spouse, my heirs, all members of my family, executors, administrators, representatives, and assigns.

GENERAL PROVISIONS

I understand this Agreement is a binding contract that supersedes any other agreements or representations and is intended to provide a comprehensive release of liability but is not intended to assert any defenses which are prohibited by law. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Agreement shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. The parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Colorado Springs District of Colorado or the El Paso County Court any actions, suits or proceedings arising out of or relating to this Agreement and irrevocably and unconditionally waive any objection to the laying of venue of any action, suit or proceeding arising out of this Agreement. The parties hereby irrevocably waive all rights to trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim (whether based on contract, tort or otherwise) arising out of or otherwise relating to this Agreement.

 

EXPLOITATION OF NAME AND LIKENESS

In consideration of being allowed to participate in this Convention, I hereby agree that PPG may photograph and/or record my likeness and/or voice and my participation in the Convention and without any additional consideration, I hereby agree that PPG and its assigns and/or licensees may distribute, exhibit, broadcast, exploit, advertise, publicize and promote my name, biographical material, likeness, voice and performance in and in connection with the Convention or other PPG events. I further agree that PPG may edit my appearance therein and I waive any personal or proprietary rights with respect thereto. I represent and warrant to PPG that I have not made any contract or commitment in conflict with this grant of rights to PPG.
