Waiver of Liability and Policy Agreement
By completing this online waiver, and in consideration of and as an inducement to my registration and payment of fees to become a participant of a retreat with Firefly Community LLC (hereinafter “Firefly”), I represent and agree as follows:
I acknowledge that trips conducted by Firefly have risks inherent in them. I recognize the trip activities can result in serious injury to my property and myself, including death. I realize surface conditions during the trips will vary; obstacles and hills exist on some paths, trails, and roads; and I will be in proximity to vehicles, bicyclists, pedestrians and other hazards, all of which can be dangerous. Furthermore, I understand I am responsible for my own safety when drinking or tasting wine, beer, or other alcohol on any of Firefly's trips and always have the option to not consume alcohol.
I confirm that I have been examined by a licensed Physician within the past six months and have been found by such physician to be in good health and fully able to perform all yoga exercises, which I am to learn and perform during the retreat. I will faithfully follow all instructions given to me by Firefly authorized instructors as to when and how to perform and not to perform yoga exercises. I understand the practice of yoga and group exercise activities may expose me to risk of personal injury, disease, or death and I knowingly and willingly assume such risk.In the event that I am pregnant, I will not attend a yoga class until I have discussed the potential risks to me or my unborn child/fetus with my obstetrician. I agree that I will follow my obstetrician’s recommendations and on behalf of myself, my heirs, spouse or other interested party hold harmless Firefly for any possible injury to myself or my unborn child/fetus.
I acknowledge that registration payments and deposits paid hereafter are non refundable. I understand that if I choose not to contract for travel insurance I am accepting the risks of my having to cancel my trip due to injury, illness, a change in my plans, or any other reason and will readily abide by Firefly's cancellation policy. I acknowledge that if I need to cancel more than 60 days prior to the retreat, that the deposit of $250 is non-refundable. I acknowledge that if I need to cancel less than 60 days prior to the retreat, for whatever reason, I am responsible for the full cost of the retreat and will not receive a refund or credit. No refund or credit will be given for arriving late or departing early. I agree that in order to hold my space, payments must be made in accordance with the payment schedule. If payments are not made in a timely manner, I forfeit my space on the retreat and will not receive a refund.
In partial exchange for the retreat, I give Firefly permission to use photos or other images taken by me which I make available to Firefly, or images taken of me during the retreat for any purpose, including but not limited to use in brochures, websites, marketing, and publicity. I furthermore agree to wear appropriate safety gear (as applicable) and to obey all local regulations.
I acknowledge the contagious nature of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 and further acknowledge that Firefly has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus/COVID-19.
I further acknowledge that Firefly cannot guarantee that I will not become infected with the Coronavirus/Covid-19. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to and/or infected by the Coronavirus/COVID-19 may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Firefly staff, and other clients and their families.
I voluntarily seek services provided by Firefly and acknowledge that I am increasing my risk of exposure to the Coronavirus/COVID-19. I acknowledge that I must comply with all set procedures to reduce the spread while attending a Firefly event.
I acknowledge that if I engage in any illegal activity, or inappropriate behavior towards another attendee or the retreat leader, I will no longer be able to participate in the retreat and no refund will be provided.
Any provision not in conformity with the law of any state or governing body having jurisdiction is hereby severed from this contract and the remaining provisions remain enforceable. I agree that any dispute regarding this Agreement will first be tendered by the parties to a member of The American Arbitration Association for resolution prior to the filing of any lawsuit. Therefore, I hereby agree not to sue Firefly or any of its owners, employees, or contractors. I also release these parties from all liability to myself, my representatives, heirs, and next of kin for any and all damages to myself or my property, death, and related claims.
I understand that by submitting this Registration Form I am releasing my rights; acknowledging that retreats operated by Firefly are inherently risky; and accepting the validity of this online waiver. I understand and agree that participation in this retreat may require me to complete an online COVID-19 Liability Waiver.
