I understand that during part of the Program, my Minor Participant will be under the supervision of teachers, chaperones, and other adults who are not NatureBridge employees, and who have not been selected, and are not supervised, by NatureBridge. I understand and agree that NatureBridge is not responsible for the actions of any such individuals.
NatureBridge uses independent contractors for some services, and such independent contractors, and not NatureBridge, are solely responsible for any losses or injuries caused by their acts or omissions. I understand that this Participant Agreement is intended by NatureBridge to have as broad an effect as the law permits, and that if any part of this Participant Agreement is found to be invalid for any reason, the remainder of the Participant Agreement shall remain valid and fully enforceable.
I agree that if there is a dispute between me or my Minor Participant, on the one hand, and a Released Party, on the other, such dispute will be governed by the substantive laws of the State of California, and that any lawsuit against any of the Released Parties will be filed and maintained in a court of competent jurisdiction in San Francisco County, California.
I have been advised to consult with an attorney of my choosing if I have any questions concerning the provisions and/or translation of this Participant Agreement. I certify that I have carefully read this Participant Agreement, I understand its terms, and am signing it voluntarily. I have had any questions concerning the Program answered to my satisfaction.
I understand that in the event of any dispute or issue regarding any translation of this Participant Agreement, the English version of this Participant Agreement shall control.
