I am over the age of 21 and agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless EF and its affiliates (which term shall include parents, subsidiaries, officers, directors, shareholders, agents and employees of EF as well as EF itself), my school, my school board and my university system (the “Released Parties”) from, and agree not to sue the Released Parties for, any and all claims, demands, actions, lawsuits, settlements, judgments, damages, losses, costs and expenses of any nature whatsoever (including attorney(s’) fees) on account of or arising out of any and all personal injury, death, bodily injury, mental anguish, emotional distress, physical, property or other damage that I may suffer from any cause whatsoever related in any way to my participation in any EF-sponsored trip. I further agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless the Released Parties from any and all acts of God, war (whether declared or undeclared), terrorist activities, instability in a destination country, incidents of violence, public health issues or quarantine, substantial currency fluctuations, strikes, government restrictions, fire or severe weather conditions which make it impossible or commercially unreasonable in the opinion of EF to conduct the event, or the acts of omission or any other agents over which the Released Parties have no direct or indirect control, including without limitation, airlines, railways, bus companies, hotels, shipping companies or sub-contracted agents.
This release includes all claims for personal injury, death, pain and suffering, property damage or any other claim under any applicable statute.
