  • Voluntary Acknowledgement of Risks, Release of Liability and Indemnity Agreement

  • As consideration for the State Fair of Texas (“SFT”) permitting me to enter the fairgrounds with my photography equipment and take professional photographs (the “Activities”) at the 2018 State Fair of Texas (the “2018 Fair”) and to use the facilities of the State Fair of Texas and/or the City of Dallas, including Fair Park (collectively, the “Facilities”) in Dallas, Dallas County, Texas, I hereby agree to release, discharge and hold harmless SFT, City of Dallas, Park and Recreation Board of the City of Dallas, their respective agents, officers, directors, volunteers, employees, and all other persons or entities acting in any capacity on their behalf (collectively, the “Releasees”), on behalf of myself, my children, my parents, my heirs, assigns, personal representative and estate as follows:

    ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS OF RISKS: I UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE that the Activities in which I am about to voluntarily engage bear certain known risks and unanticipated risks that could result in PHYSICAL OR MENTAL INJURY, DEATH, ILLNESS OR DISEASE, OR DAMAGE to me or my property. I understand and acknowledge those risks may result in claims against Releasees. However, I am making an informed choice to voluntarily accept such risks due to the benefits of the Activities, and I agree that the benefit of the Activities outweigh the risks, which include but in no way are limited to any (i) acts, omissions or negligence in any degree of Releasees, or their agents or employees; (ii) risks inherent in the Activities, including but not limited to any injuries such as physical or mental injuries; (iii)  latent or apparent defects or conditions of the Facilities; (iv) behavior of patrons of the 2018 Fair or other third parties; (v) accidents or incidents at the Facilities; and/or (vi)  first aid, emergency treatment or services rendered or failed to be rendered by Releasees, or their agents or employees.

    I UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE that the above list is not complete or exhaustive, and that other risks, known or unknown, identified or unidentified, anticipated or unanticipated may also result in injury, death, illness, disease, or damage to me or to my property. I FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE that I have the skills necessary and am in good physical and mental health, and not suffering from any condition, disease or disablement which would or could potentially affect participation in the Activities or use of the Facilities.

    VOLUNTARY ACCEPTANCE AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND RESPONSIBILITY: I EXPRESSLY AND VOLUNTARILY AGREE, COVENANT AND PROMISE TO ACCEPT AND ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITIES, AND RISK FOR INJURY, DEATH, ILLNESS OR DISEASE OR DAMAGE to me or to my property arising from the participation in the Activities or use of the Facilities.

    RELEASE AND INDEMNITY: I VOLUNTARILY RELEASE AND FOREVER DISCHARGE AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE Releasees and all other persons or entities affiliated therewith, from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions or rights of action, which are related to, arise out of, or are in any way connected with the participation in the Activities or use of the Facilities, including, but specifically not limited to any and all negligence or fault of Releasees. I UNDERSTAND THIS IS A RELEASE OF LIABILITY THAT IS VALID FOREVER, and will apply to all current and future participation in the Activities or use of the Facilities. I understand that this RELEASE OF LIABILITY will prevent me, my child, my heirs or my estate from bringing any action at law, suit in equity, or other jurisdictional proceeding or making any claim for damages, injury or death in the event of damage, injury or death arising from participation in the Activities or use of the Facilities.

    I FURTHER AGREE, PROMISE AND COVENANT TO HOLD HARMLESS AND TO INDEMNIFY Releasees, and all other persons or entities from all defense costs, including attorneys’ fees, or any other costs incurred in connection with claims for mental or bodily injury, wrongful death or property damage that may be filed by me, my child, my heirs or my estate. Such indemnity and defense obligation shall further extend to any claim, loss or lawsuit, which alleges that I negligently or intentionally caused any injury, death or damage to patrons of the 2018 Fair or other third parties in the course of my participation in the Activities.

    INSURANCE: I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while participating in the Activities or using the Facilities, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage myself. I further certify that I have no medical or physical conditions that could interfere with my safety in performing the Activities or using the Facilities, or else I am willing to assume – and bear the costs of – all risks that may be created, directly or indirectly, by any such condition.

    ENTIRE AGREEMENT, SEVERABILITY AND VENUE: I understand that this is the entire Agreement between the undersigned and Releasees, and that it cannot be modified or changed in any way by the representations or statements of Releasees or any employee or agent of Releasees, or by the undersigned. I understand and agree that this Agreement is severable and that if any clause is found to be invalid, the balance of the contract will remain in effect and will be valid and enforceable. I agree that any action will be brought in a court in the County of Dallas, State of Texas. Any disputes will be subject to and determined under the laws of the State of Texas. I have read this entire document, understand it completely, and agree to be bound by its terms.
