Training Agreement Assuming Risk, Waiver And Release Of Claims, Agreement Not To Sue And Release Of Likeness
I have made a voluntary decision to be a participant in a Truffle Dog Company LLC (the “Company”) seminar/ event/ training (the “events”) and to be taught truffle hunting and dog training techniques by the Company. I understand that the Company may take me on to property owned and operated by others (the “Owner/Agent”) or public property.
I understand and agree that hunting truffles involves risks including, but not limited to, the risk of personal injury, and/or personal property damage; such risks may be generated by the action or inaction of any employees, representatives, property, or agents of the Company or Owner/Agent; or may occur in a truly limitless variety of ways. I acknowledge that dogs are unpredictable animals with their own will and drives, and therefore, regardless of training, handling, or environmental circumstances, the Company cannot protect against every potential injury, risk, or accident to myself, to other persons participating in the training, or on the property where the training is taking place, or to dogs. These may include dog bites and the responsive actions and complications that arise from them, and I understand and acknowledge that such risks are inherent and cannot be eliminated. I voluntarily expose myself and my canine to such risk by accompanying, or participating in, truffle hunting with the company.
I agree that I will be responsible for my conduct and the conduct of my dog and others accompanying me (including minors) at all times. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its directors, officers, members, managers, employees, agents, sponsors, organizers, volunteers and other representatives (Company Personnel), from any and all claims of injury (including death), loss, cost, expenses, or damage to persons, dogs, or property caused by the acts or omissions of you, your dog, and any other persons accompanying you, including any minor children, during the course of training or related activities, as well as by the conduct of your dog under your own care as a result of following training instructions. This provision applies whether the claims are made by you, members of your family, your accompanying guests, the Company or third parties.
Knowing these risks, I hereby agree to voluntarily assume all risks, and to release and hold harmless the Company, Owner/Agents, and their respective directors, officers, representatives, employees, agents, and all other associated individuals which/who, through negligence, might otherwise be liable for my damages. I understand by executing this agreement, I agree not to sue the Company or Company Personnel for any injury resulting to myself or my personal property arising from or in connection with my participation in any Company Events on Owner/Agent property or public property.
I grant the Company and its representatives and employees the right to take photographs or video of me and/or my pet, and to copyright, use and publish the same in print and/or electronically. I understand that the Company may use such images with or without associating names thereto. I further waive any claim for compensation of any kind for the Company's use or publication of images of me and/or those of my minor children (if applicable).
I understand and agree this assumption of risk, release, hold harmless, and release of likeness shall be binding on me, my heirs, personal representatives, successors and assigns.
