The following waiver and release of liability agreement applies to ALL live Puzzle Crawl events.
Puzzle Crawl Waiver and Release of Liability Agreement
In consideration of being permitted to engage in the following Activity – the Puzzle Crawl, a pub crawl with puzzles – which I acknowledge is unsupervised, I acknowledge and agree to, on my own behalf, and on behalf of my personal representatives, heirs, assigns, executors, administrators and next of kin, as follows:
I am aware and acknowledge that injury or death may result from my participation in the Activity and from the use of the premises and facilities where the Activity is located or is to occur, or if premises and facilities are not an applicable description, the general area where the Activity is to occur, and the use of any machinery, equipment or apparatus located therein or thereon (collectively the “Activity Premises”). Upon entering the Activity Premises, I will inspect the same and my observation and my engagement, participation and/or involvement – actively or passively – in the Activity shall constitute an acknowledgement that I find and accept them to be safe and reasonably suited for their intended purpose.
I hereby release Puzzle Crawl, Limited and its partners, members, employees, directors, officers, agents, independent contractors, subcontractors, representatives, successors, and assigns (collectively, the “Releasees”) from and against any and all liability for any loss, damage, injury, expense, demand, or cause of action that I may suffer whether with respect to personal injury, death, damage to or destruction of property, theft, or otherwise, which may arise as a result of my participation – actively or passively – in the Activity, or my presence in, upon, or about the Activity Premises or my use of the Activity Premises.
I will indemnify and hold harmless the Releasees, collectively and individually, from any and all losses, liabilities, damages, demands, costs, causes of action and expenses that they may incur, for any reason whatsoever, which may arise as a result of my participation – actively or passively – in the Activity, and my presence in, upon, or about the Activity Premises.
I acknowledge that the Releasees, collectively or individually, are NOT responsible for the errors, omissions, acts, or failures to act of any party or entity conducting a specific activity on their behalf. This Waiver and Release of Liability Form shall be construed broadly to provide a release and waiver to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law.
I understand that being permitted to participate in the above noted Activity, there are potential risks including but not limited to:1) Injuries or illnesses, including death, 2) Mental stress and similar disorders, 3) Injuries resulting from the use of simple tools and objects, 4) Dim lighting on the Activity Premises, indoors and outdoors, 5) Hazards associated with an urban environment, and 6) Hazards associated with inclement weather.
I understand while participating in this activity, I may be photographed. I agree to allow my photo, video, or film likeness to be used for any legitimate purpose the Releasees decide or assign, in perpetuity, without compensation. I further agree that any photos taken by me and provided to Puzzle Crawl, Limited, physically or electronically in any form and through any medium, may be used for any legitimate purpose the Releasees decide or assign, in perpetuity, without compensation.
I understand that alcohol will be served at various locations on the Activity Premises, but I agree and acknowledge that I am not required nor even encouraged to consume alcohol in order to participate – actively or passively – in the Activity. I acknowledge that I am solely responsible for any consequences resulting from my consumption of alcohol during the course of the Activity, and that the Releasees are not liable for such consumption, which I agree and acknowledge is completely voluntary on my part, nor are the Releasees liable for any consequences – adverse or otherwise – resulting from said consumption. I further agree and acknowledge that I am solely responsible for making transportation arrangements if I am too intoxicated to legally drive in the jurisdiction(s) of the Activity Premises. I agree that, while participating – actively or passively – in the Activity, I will not consume alcohol to such a degree that I am too intoxicated to participate – actively or passively – in the Activity or to such a degree that my condition is dangerous to myself or others. In plain English, I agree that if I drink alcohol during the Puzzle Crawl, I will do so responsibly.
In addition, I acknowledge that all decisions regarding the Puzzle Crawl – including but not limited to participation, eligibility, operation, execution, rules, penalties, scoring, and awarding of prizes — shall be exclusively made by Puzzle Crawl, Limited, or its members, agents, or representatives, and I agree to be bound by any such decisions.
I further understand that all puzzles and other printed and spoken materials or instructions that I will encounter throughout the Crawl are the exclusive property of Puzzle Crawl, Limited, and I agree that I will not use said materials or instructions in a manner other than intended, particularly not in service of any competitor or similar service to Puzzle Crawl, or in any manner that Puzzle Crawl, Limited, in its sole discretion, believes is detrimental to its business or the services it offers.
