If you RSVP to any Events through our Services, you hereby indicate that you have read, understand and agree to these event terms.
If you are employed by LEVC these Terms will govern your participation in any Event to the extent such Terms are not inconsistent with LEVC’s standard employment agreements or policies).

Although we try to create a safe environment at LEVC Events, accidents may occur.
You agree to carefully consider the inherent risks in any activities that you choose to take part in and to take reasonable precautions before you choose to attend or participate at a LEVC Event.
For example, you should ensure that you are in good physical health before engaging in any physical activity at an LEVC Event, and you should always drink responsibly given the risks associated with any activities while your judgment is impaired.
Second, please note that some of the other LEVC Event guests may be less responsible than you, and may themselves create additional risks to you despite their best intentions.
In summary, you understand that your attendance and participation at LEVC Events is voluntary, and you agree to assume responsibility for any resulting injuries to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law. By the same token, you agree that LEVC is not responsible for any injuries you might sustain at Non-LEVC Events listed on our Services.
You (for yourself, your heirs, personal representatives, or assigns, and anyone else who might make a claim on your behalf) hereby release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue, LEVC and its respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, partners, shareholders, members, agents, employees, vendors, sponsors and volunteers from any and all claims, demands, causes of action, damages, losses or expenses (including court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) which may arise out of, result from, or relate in any way to your attendance at any LEVC Event or Non-LEVC Event, except for any gross negligence or willful misconduct on our part.
You further agree to indemnify and hold LEVC, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives harmless, including costs, liabilities and legal fees, from any claim or demand made by any third party due to, related to, or connected with your attendance or conduct at any LEVC Event or Non-LEVC Event.
LEVC and its sponsors and vendors sometimes take photos and videos at LEVC Events, and later use them for promotional purposes. By participating or attending any LEVC Event, you agree that you may appear in some of these photos and videos, and you authorize their use in this fashion. In addition, if you take any photos or videos of attendees at a LEVC Event and provide them to us, you authorize us to use them in the same fashion, and represent that the attendees that appear in your photos and videos have consented to such use. We do not control Non-LEVC Events or the people that organize them. It is possible that organizers or attendees of Non-LEVC Events will take photos or shoot videos in which you appear and then post them online (including, possibly, on our Services). By RSVP’ing to a Non-LEVC Event through our Services, you authorize LEVC’s use of such media for promotion purposes.
While we hope not to, we may prohibit your attendance at any LEVC Event at any time if you fail to abide by the Terms, including this Section 6, or for any or no reason, without notice or liability of any kind. We reserve the right to cancel any LEVC Event at any time, for any reason, and without liability or prejudice.
