Acknowledgment of Risks and Release of Liability
In consideration of Out Livin,’ their officers, agents, employees, and stockholders, and all other persons or entities associated with those businesses (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Out Livin’”) you agree as follows:
Although Out Livin’ has taken reasonable steps to provide you with appropriate equipment and knowledge so you can enjoy an activity for which you may not be skilled, Out Livin’ has informed you that this activity is not without risk. Certain risks are inherent in each activity and cannot be eliminated without destroying the unique character of the activity. These inherent risks are some of the same elements that contribute to the unique character of this activity and can be the cause of loss or damage to my equipment, or accidental injury, illness, or in extreme cases, permanent trauma or death. Out Livin’ does not want to frighten you or reduce your enthusiasm for this activity but believes it is important for you to know in advance what to expect and to be informed of the inherent risks. The following describes some, but not all, of those risks.
Risks may include, but are not limited to: uneven, loose, and/or slippery terrain; unmarked natural and manmade hazards; drowning; steep grades; dangerous and rapidly changing weather conditions (e.g., lightning, high winds, extreme heat and cold, heavy rain and flash floods); forest fires; delayed emergency medical response; dangers arising from the use of campsite equipment; wildlife (e.g., snakes, bears, raccoons, coyotes, ticks and bees); COVID-19 contraction; and contact with and/or consumption of animal products, vegetation, water, and other substances found on and around the campsite.
You are aware that Out Livin’ entails risks of injury or death to any participant. You understand the description of these inherent risks is not complete and that other unknown or unanticipated inherent risks may result in injury or death. You agree to assume and accept full responsibility for the inherent risks identified herein and those inherent risks not specifically identified. Your participation in this activity is purely voluntary, no one is forcing you to participate, and you elect to participate in spite of and with full knowledge of the inherent risks.
You acknowledge that engaging in this activity may require a degree of skill and knowledge different than other activities and that you have responsibilities as a participant. You acknowledge that the staff of Out Livin’ has been available to more fully explain to me the nature and physical demands of this activity and the inherent risks, hazards, and dangers associated with this activity.
You certify that you are fully capable of participating in this activity. Therefore, you assume and accept full responsibility for yourself, including all additional personnel in your party including minor children in your care, custody, and control, for bodily injury, death or loss of personal property and expenses as a result of those inherent risks and dangers identified herein and those inherent risks and dangers not specifically identified, and as a result of your negligence in participating in this activity.
You have carefully read, clearly understood, and accepted the terms and conditions stated herein and acknowledge that this agreement shall be effective and binding upon yourself, your heirs, assigns, personal representative(s), and estate and for all members of you and all the additional personnel in your party’s family, including minor children.
Limitation of Liability
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE ENTIRE RISK ARISING OUT OF YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE WEBSITE AND COLLECTIVE CONTENT, YOUR BOOKING OF ANY SITE VIA THE WEBSITE, AND ANY CONTACT YOU HAVE WITH OTHER USERS OF OUT LIVIN’ WHETHER IN PERSON OR ONLINE REMAINS WITH YOU. NEITHER OUT LIVIN’ NOR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE WEBSITE, SITES, COLLECTIVE CONTENT, WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR LOSS OF GOODWILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER DAMAGE OR SYSTEM FAILURE OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, OR FOR ANY DAMAGES FOR PERSONAL OR BODILY INJURY OR EMOTIONAL DISTRESS ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE WEBSITE OR COLLECTIVE CONTENT, FROM ANY COMMUNICATIONS, INTERACTIONS OR MEETINGS WITH OTHER USERS OF THE WEBSITE OR OTHER PERSONS WITH WHOM YOU COMMUNICATE OR INTERACT AS A RESULT OF YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE OR FROM YOUR BOOKING OF ANY SITE VIA THE WEBSITE, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT OUT LIVIN' HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE, EVEN IF A LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
EXCEPT FOR OUT LIVIN’S OBLIGATION TO PAY SITE FEES AND TAXES COLLECTED BY OUT LIVIN’, IN NO EVENT WILL OUT LIVIN’ AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS AND YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FROM YOUR BOOKING OF ANY SITE VIA THE WEBSITE, OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE WEBSITE OR COLLECTIVE CONTENT AND IN CONNECTION WITH ANY SITE, EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID OR OWED FOR THE BOOKING FROM WHICH THE LIABILITY AROSE, OR ONE HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS (US$100) IF NO SUCH PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE, AS APPLICABLE. THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN OUT LIVIN’ AND YOU. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold Out Livin’ and its additional insureds, affiliates and subsidiaries, and their officers, directors, employees, and agents harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with (a) your access to or use of the Website or Collective Content; (b) your violation of these Terms, or the violation of these Terms by any third party; (c) your (i) booking of a Site; (d) the use, condition or rental of any Site by you, including but not limited to any injuries, death, losses, or damages (compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise) of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of a rental, booking or use of a Site.
You also release, defend, indemnify and hold harmless Out Livin’ from any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including without limitation, reasonable legal fees, arising out of or in any way connected with such your use and recreation on Shasta-Trinity National Forest property.
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Out Livin’ and you regarding the Website or Collective Content, and any bookings of Sites made via the Website, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Out Livin’ and you regarding bookings of Sites, the Website and Collective Content.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Out Livin’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Out Livin’ may assign or transfer these Terms, at its sole discretion, without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications permitted or required hereunder, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be in writing and given by Out Livin’ via email (in each case to the address that you provide). For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms and your use of the Services will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the United States of America, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. You and we agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of a state court located in the County of Siskiyou, State of California for any disputes which are not required to be arbitrated, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.
You and Out Livin’ agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services or use of the Site or Application (collectively, "Disputes") will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party's copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Out Livin’ are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Out Livin’ otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this "Dispute Resolution" section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this "Dispute Resolution" section will survive any termination of these Terms.
Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified by this "Dispute Resolution" section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA's roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitrator's Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator's decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator's award damages must be consistent with the terms of the "Limitation of Liability" section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim.
Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules.
Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of the "Modification" section above, if Out Livin’ changes this "Dispute Resolution" section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the "Last Updated Date" above or in the date of Out Livin’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Out Livin’ in accordance with the provisions of this "Dispute Resolution" section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
The failure of Out Livin’ to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Out Livin’. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
These Terms do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than the parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties agree that the payment card networks are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms for purposes of enforcing provisions related to payments, but that their consent or agreement is not necessary for any changes or modifications to these Terms.
