I HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE that use of the facilities and space of FRESNO IDEAWORKS, a California Nonprofit Corporation (herein after referred to also as IDEAWORKS), and its equipment (herein after to include machinery, power and hand tools, electronics, etc.) has inherent risks. I agree that I am voluntarily participating in the aforementioned activities and using IDEAWORKS facilities and premises and assume all risks associated with the use of any equipment or facilities, but not limited to any physical and or psychological injury, pain, suffering, illness, disfigurement, temporary or permanent disability or even death, as well as economic loss that I may suffer because of my participation in such use. These injuries or outcomes may arise from my own or other's actions, inactions, negligence, or from the condition of the equipment or facilities. Nonetheless, I assume all related risks, whether known or unknown to me, of my participation in this activity.
I further acknowledge that the above list is not inclusive of all possible risk associated with the use of IDEAWORKS and that the above list in no way limits the extent of each by this waiver and covenant not to sue. I voluntarily choose to use IDEAWORKS' equipment and facilities, and agree as follows:
To waive and release any and all claims that I have or may have in the future against IDEAWORKS, including their board, members, employees, agents, affiliates, successors and assigns, manufacturers and installers of equipment and facilities.
In consideration of my use of the equipment and facilities of IDEAWORKS I, the undersigned user, agree to use IDEAWORKS in accordance with its established safety policies and procedures and agree to INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS FRESNO IDEAWORKS, its officers, agents, members, and employees from any and all cause of action, claims, demands, losses or cost of any nature whatsoever arising out of or in any way related to my use of IDEAWORKS, whether asserted by IDEAWORKS or any 3rd parties who may be injured on account of or in any way relating to my use of IDEAWORKS. I further expressly agree that the foregoing release, waiver and indemnity agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as the State of California will allow and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, not withstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
This agreement shall be effective and binding upon my heirs, next of kin, executors, administrator and assigns, in event of my death. By signing this agreement, I waive my right to bring a court action to recover compensation or obtain any other remedy for any injury to myself or my property or for my death, however caused, arising out of my use of the equipment and facilities of FRESNO IDEAWORKS, now or any time in the future, whether caused by FRESNO IDEAWORKS negligence or that of its officers, members, agents, or employees.
I agree to pay for all legal fees accumulated by FRESNO IDEAWORKS incurred by any claims made by me or on my behalf. I accept all the terms herein, whether stated or implied, and agree to act ethically and fairly in all matters.
I certify that I am of Lawful age (18 years or older) and otherwise legally competent to sign this agreement. I further understand that the terms of this agreement are legally binding and I certify that I am signing this agreement, after having carefully reading it, of my own free will.
