Participant hereby expressly waives and releases any and all claims, now known or hereafter known in any jurisdiction, against the Company, and its owners, officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, members, successors, assigns, owners, volunteers and/lessors of the premises used to conduct the Activity (collectively, “Releasees”), on account of all injury, death, or property damage arising out of or attributable to the Activities, whether arising out of the negligence, gross negligence, willful misconduct, including failure to take reasonable steps to safeguard or protect the Participant from the risk, dangers, and/or hazards of participating in the Activity, and/or breach of statutory or other duties, including duties arising from premise liability, of the Company or any Releasees or otherwise. Participant covenants not to make or bring any such claim against the Company or any other Releasees, and forever release and discharge the Company and all other Releasees from liability under such claims, including any claims for contributory negligence. This Agreement shall operate conclusively as an estoppel in the event of any claim, action, complaint, or proceeding which might be brought in the future by this Participant with respect to the Activity or other matters covered by this Agreement. This Agreement may be pleaded in the event any such claim, action, complaint, or proceeding is brought, as a complete defense and reply, and may be relied upon in any proceeding to dismiss the claim, action, complaint, or proceeding on a summary basis and no objection will be raised by the Participant or anyone else on behalf of the Participant in any subsequent action that the other parties in the subsequent action were not privy to formation of this Agreement.
Participant shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Company and all other Releasees against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, deficiencies, claims, actions, judgments, settlements, interest, awards, penalties, fines, costs, or expenses of whatever kind, including reasonable attorney fees, fees and the costs of enforcing any right to indemnification under this Agreement, and the cost of pursuing any insurance providers, arising out or resulting from any claim, whether asserted by the Participant or by a third party, related to Participant’s involvement in the Activities.
This Agreement constitutes the sole and entire agreement of the Company and Participant with respect to the subject matter contained herein and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to such subject matter. The terms of this Agreement are contractual, are not a mere recital, and any breach of the terms of this Agreement may be enforced against Participant and may give rise to a damage claim against the Participant enforceable by a further legal proceeding. If any term or provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. This Agreement is binding on and shall inure to the benefit of the Company and Participant and their respective successors and assigns. All matters arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Florida without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Florida or any other jurisdiction). Any controversy or claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the performance thereunder, including, without limitation, any claims relating to bodily injury, property damage or death, shall be determined and settled by binding arbitration, which arbitration shall take place in St. Lucie County, Florida.
