Burlington Walking Tours (hereinafter "operator") is a trade name of Oak Snow Consulting LLC, a Vermont limited liability company which arranges walking tours guided by independent contractors and the company's principal. In consideration for your participation in said activities, the individual, group, organization, business, spectator, or other (hereinafter "participant"), does hereby release and forever discharge the operator, and its officers, board, and employees, jointly and severally from any and all actions, causes of actions, claims and demands for, upon or by reason of any damage, loss or injury, which hereafter may be sustained by participating in the activities.
This release extends and applies to, and also covers and includes, all unknown, unforeseen, unanticipated and unsuspected injuries, damages, loss and liability and the consequences thereof, as well as those now disclosed and known to exist. The provisions of any state, federal, local or territorial law or state providing substance that releases shall not extend to claims, demands, injuries, or damages which are known or unsuspected to exist at this time, to the person executing such release, are hereby expressly waived. I hereby agree on behalf of my heirs, executors, administrators, and assigns, to indemnify the operator and its officers, board and employees, joint and severally from any and all actions, causes of actions, claims and demands for, upon or by reason of any damage, loss or injury, which hereafter may be sustained by participating in the activities.
It is further understood and agreed that said participation in the activities is not to be construed as an admission of any liability and acceptance of assumption of responsibility by the operator, its officers, board, and employees, jointly and severally, for all damages and expenses for which the operator, its officers, board and employees, become liable as a result of any alleged act of the activity participant.
Participant acknowledges that walking tours are operated in public spaces (including but not limited to public parks, public roads, public pedestrian throughways, and public sidewalks) which are not the responsibility of the operator to maintain. The operator can therefore offer no warranties expressed or implied regarding the safety or suitability of said spaces for any activity planned or impromptu. Participant acknowledges undertaking the tour at his own risk.
Participant further agrees that any and all claims that may arise relating to this agreement in the United States shall be resolved in the Courts of the state of Vermont for which the Courts of the state of Vermont have agreed jurisdiction.
