Living Big LLC Adventure Waiver and Release
- Adventure AND ASSOCIATED RISKS
I have chosen to participate in an adventure (the “Adventure”) organized by Living Big LLC. I acknowledge that:
- The Adventure may involve activities that are inherently hazardous, including those described in the Adventure agenda published online at LivingBig.org;
- During the Adventure, I may be exposed to dangers and hazards, including equipment failures and negligence by others;
- As a consequence of these risks, I may be seriously hurt or disabled or may die from the resulting injuries, and that my property may also be damaged;
- Hospital facilities, qualified medical care, and emergency medical evacuation may be limited or unavailable during portions of the Adventure and, where available, may be expensive;
- Living Big LLC assumes no responsibility for providing medical care during the Adventure, and I will have to pay for any medical care and evacuation costs that I incur;
- Living Big LLC’s obligation is to the group, not any one individual, and I may not receive assistance from Living Big LLC if I am required to deviate from the Adventure itinerary; and
- In consideration of the permission to participate in the Adventure, I agree to the terms contained in this Waiver and Release.
- ASSUMPTION OF THE RISKS AND INDEMNITY
Any Adventure involves certain risks, including but not limited to those listed above. I expressly assume the risk of any and all accidents or injuries of any kind that may be sustained by, or in connection with, my participation in the Adventure. I agree to hold harmless, discharge and absolve Living Big LLC, its members, officers, agents and/or employees (collectively, “Released Parties”) from any and all liability or responsibility, including but not limited to any loss, theft, cost, claim, injury, damage or liability incurred as a result of participation in the Adventure (each a “Liability”), except if such Liability is the result of the Gross negligence or willful misconduct of Released Parties. I further agree to defend and indemnify Released Parties for any Liability incurred, including the cost of reasonable attorney fees and costs, unless such Liability is the result of the Gross negligence or willful misconduct of Released Parties. I agree that in the event of my death or disability, the terms of this Waiver and Release, including the indemnification obligation in this Section 2, will be binding on my estate, and my personal representative, executor, administrator or guardian will be obligated to respect and enforce them.
- WAIVER, RELEASE OF LIABILITY, AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE
I hereby WAIVE AND RELEASE ALL LIABILITIES, CAUSES OF ACTION, CLAIMS AND DEMANDS against Living Big LLC, its members, employees, officers, vendors and contractors (“Released Parties”), where such liabilities, causes of action, claims and demands are in any way related to any injury, death, loss or harm (whether foreseen or unforeseen) attributable to the Released Parties’ negligence that occur to me or to any other person or to any property during the Adventure or are in any way related to the Adventure. This release includes, but is not limited to claims for strict liability for any abnormally dangerous activities in which I choose to participate in the course of the Adventure. I also agree NOT TO SUE or make a claim against the Released Parties for death, injuries, loss, or harm that occur on the Adventure. The only claims I am not releasing are those based upon gross negligence or intentional misconduct by the Released Parties. I acknowledge that Living Big LLC has no control over and assumes no responsibility for the actions of any independent contractors providing any services for the Adventure. I also agree NOT TO SUE or make a claim against the Released Parties for death, injuries, loss, or harm that occur on the Adventure.
- HEALTH AND SAFETY
I have been advised to consult with a medical doctor with regard to my personal medical needs. I state that there are no health-related reasons or problems that preclude or restrict my participation in the Adventure. I am physically able to walk on unstable surfaces, transport my own luggage, and enter and exit whatever modes of transportation are required during the Adventure. I have obtained the required immunizations, if any. I acknowledge that Living Big LLC is not obligated to attend to any of my medical or medication needs, and I assume all risk and responsibility for those needs. In case of a medical emergency occurring during my participation in the Adventure, I authorize in advance Living Big LLC to secure whatever treatment is deemed necessary by a medical professional, including the administration of any anesthetic and surgery. Living Big LLC may (but is not obligated to) take any actions it considers to be warranted under the circumstances regarding my health and safety. Such actions do not create a special relationship between me and Living Big LLC. I RELEASE Living Big LLC, its members, employees, officers and contractors, agents and assigns from all liability for any bodily injury or damage I sustain as a result of any medical care that I receive resulting from my participation in the Adventure, as well as any medical treatment decision or recommendation made by a member, officer, employee, or agent of Living Big LLC. I agree to pay all expenses relating to such treatment and release Living Big LLC from any liability for actions taken under this Section 5.
- TRAVEL CHANGES
If I become separated from the travel group, fail to meet a departure airplane, bus, train, car, or other mode of transportation, or become sick or injured, I will to a reasonable extent, and at my own expense seek out, contact, and reach the group at its next available destination.
- OTHER FORMS & TERMS
I have carefully read and understand all the information regarding the Adventure posted online at www.LivingBig.org including the minimum requirements for participants’ level of physical fitness, accommodation of dietary restrictions, frequently asked questions, payment terms and schedule, and cancellation terms.
I agree that the purpose of this Waiver and Release is that it shall be an enforceable release of liability and indemnity as broad and inclusive as is permitted by Oregon law. I agree that if any portion or provision of this Waiver and Release is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then the remainder will continue in full force and effect. I also agree that any invalid provision will be modified or partially enforced to the maximum extent permitted by law to carry out the purpose of the Waiver and Release.
- APPLICABLE LAW, FORUM & ATTORNEY’S FEES
This Waiver and Release is governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Oregon, without any reference to its choice of law rules. I agree that any dispute arising from this Waiver and Release or in any way associated with the Adventure shall be brought in the Circuit Court of Multnomah County, Oregon, or depending on applicable laws concerning jurisdiction, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon, and I agree to the jurisdiction and venue of those courts for any such dispute. In any litigation in which the validity or enforceability of this Waiver and Release is contested, I agree that the prevailing party will pay all attorney’s fees and costs.
- LEGAL LIMITATIONS
Living Big LLC may contract with independent contractors to provide transportation, guide services and all other related travel services. Living Big LLC and the Released Parties assume no responsibility, however caused, for injury, loss or damage to person or property in connection with any service provided by an independent contractor or resulting directly from the following: – acts of God – detention – annoyance – terrorism – thefts – pilferage – civil disturbances – government restrictions or regulations – strikes – delays and expenses arising from quarantine – failure of any means of conveyance to arrive or depart as scheduled – discrepancies or change in transit or hotel services over which we have no control.
From time to time Living Big LLC works with third-party companies and individuals to deliver and produce select elements of the Adventure. These companies are operated independently of Living Big LLC; accordingly, they may ask you to sign their own liability release and waiver. You will be given ample time to review these agreements and ask any questions you may have, and you always have the option to choose not to sign and not participate in the corresponding activity.
