Release of Claims, Cancellation Policy
RELEASE OF CLAIMS AGAINST THE HOUSTON SEMINAR
I, the undersigned, wish to participate in a seminar and related travel, accommodations, dining, tours, and/or other offerings (collectively: “the seminar”) put on by, referred to me by or ordered or coordinated through the Houston Seminar (“HS”). I understand that the HS
• is a non-profit organization that is presenting a seminar;
• may notify me of or facilitate my enrollment in activities related to the seminar;
• is not acting as my agent, insurer, or guarantor;
• is not undertaking any responsibility for my safety in any way, to any extent;
• offers participation to adults who are willing to incur the risks and uncertainties of travel; and
• charges fees for seminars and offerings that reflect its non-profit status and its limited role.
In consideration of the opportunity to participate in the seminar being offered and of the price charged for it, and as an inducement to the HS to put on the seminar and accept my enrollment on the terms offered, I RELEASE, ACQUIT and FOREVER DISCHARGE the Houston Seminar from
any and all claims, demands, actions, and causes of action of any kind whatsoever that I may later have or acquire, arising from or connected with the HS’s sponsorship, presentation, operation or coordination of the seminar I will attend, based upon any injury or harm of any kind to me, including but not limited to personal or bodily injury, death, injury to, loss or theft of or destruction of property, or economic loss, including all damages and legal expense arising from or recoverable for them regardless of the type or nature of the claim or cause of action I might have otherwise been able to state against THS, whether for negligence (including gross negligence), breach of contract, breach of warranty, misrepresentation, fraud, violations of any consumer protection law or other statute, or any other ground of recovery.
This release applies to all such claims and causes of action for injury or harm of any kind, even if caused by the negligence (sole or partial, simple or gross) of the Houston Seminar or any other act or omission indicating sole or partial culpability or responsibility on its part for the harm to me.
The intent of this release is to avoid the HS having any liability to me for any claim or injury of any kind, based upon acts, omissions and resulting harm that may yet occur.
Any claims made or lawsuits filed against the HS by the undersigned, his or her heirs, administrators, assignees or beneficiaries or anyone else seeking damages or relief from the HS shall be governed by the substantive law of the State of Texas, excluding conflict of laws rules.
