RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY


 

  1. I, _______________________________, (the “Releasor”) request to enter upon property owned by the Western New York Land Conservancy for the purpose of public events hosted by invitation of the Western New York Land Conservancy (hereinafter the “Activities”).

  2. The Western New York Land Conservancy owns or has an interest in a portion of the Premises. 

  3. In consideration of being allowed to enter the Premises, and engage and participate in the Activities, the Releasor, and his/her respective successors, assigns, heirs, executors, and administrators, hereby waive, release, and forever discharge the Western New York Land Conservancy, and its officers, agents, employees, successors and assigns (hereinafter, the “Releasees”) from any and all responsibility or liability for injuries, death, or other damages to the Releasor resulting from, or arising out of, the Activities.  Further, the Releasor, and his/her successors, assigns, heirs, executors, and administrators, hereby waive, release, and forever discharge the Releasees, and their respective successors and assigns from any responsibility or liability for damages to others who may make a derivative claim for injuries, death, or other damages to the Releasor resulting from, or arising out of, the Activities.  

  4. In further consideration of being allowed to enter the Premises and engage and participate in the Activities, the Releasor agrees, to the fullest extent permitted by law, that the Releasor shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Releasees, from and against any and all losses, claims, actions, demands, damages, liabilities, or expenses, including but not limited to attorney’s fees, by reason of the liability imposed by law or otherwise upon the Releasees, for damages because of bodily injuries, including death, at any time resulting therefrom sustained by any person or persons, including the Releasor, or on account of damages to property, including loss of use thereof, arising out of or resulting from performance of the Activities, or from any acts or omissions on the part of the Releasor.  Such obligation shall not be construed to negate, abridge, or reduce other rights or obligations of indemnity that would otherwise exist as to a party or person described in this agreement.  To the extent the indemnity obligations under this agreement are made void or otherwise impaired by any law controlling construction thereof, such obligations shall be deemed to conform to the indemnity permitted by such law.

  5. This Release and Waiver of Liability expressly releases and forever discharges the Releasees from any injuries, death, or other damages to the Releasor resulting from, or arising out of, the Activities, even if caused in part or in whole by the negligence of the Releasees, or any other act or omission of the Releasees.

  6. The Releasor agrees that his/her participation in the Activities is voluntary.

  7. The Releasor understands and is aware that his/her participation in the Activities is potentially hazardous.  The Releasor also understands that the Activities involve a risk of injury and even death, and that they are voluntarily participating in those Activities with full knowledge of the potential harm involved.  The Releasor hereby expressly agrees to assume and accept any and all risks of such injury or death.

  8. The Releasor represents and warrants that he/she has carefully read this Release and Waiver of Liability and has voluntarily signed this Release and Waiver of Liability.  

  9. If any part of this Release and Waiver of Liability should be deemed invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, the Releasor agrees that all other parts of it should be given full force and effect, and that the document shall be reformed as necessary to give full force and effect to the Releasor’s release and discharge of Releasees in connection with the Activities.  

  10. The Releasor agrees that this document may not be modified, revoked, or changed in any way, except by a writing signed by the Releasor and the Releasees.
