may involve certain risks, hazards or dangers such as, but not limited to: illness, injury
or death related to contact with various forms of animal, marine or plant wildlife,

terrorist acts, riots, thefts, government actions, wars, labor disputes, cultural
differences, equipment malfunction or failure, high altitudes, varied climates, lack of
immediate or ready access to medical facilities or services. I fully understand that these
risks, hazards or dangers may be present at any time prior to, during or after the tour
that I am participating in, and may be the result of any delay or change of itinerary, or
irregularity connected with the tour package which is beyond its control. I also fully
understand that in the event of a medical or personal emergency, evacuation to appropriate
or adequate medical facilities/services (if required) may not be immediately accessible
and may be lengthy, costly, or non-existent.
I acknowledge that I am voluntarily participating in this tour, and all activities, transport, etc. associated with this tour in full knowledge of the risks, hazards, or dangers involved, and I hereby agree to assume any and all risk involved, including, but not limited to injury, illness, damage to personal property, emotional trauma, and death.

This release of liability shall be binding upon me personally, as well as upon my heirs, legal representatives, assigns, and all family members (including any minors accompanying me). I intend this Release of Liability to be effective whether or not any loss, damage, injury, or death results from Negligence of Exotic Worldwide Adventures, Inc. or any of its presidents, employees, agents, leaders, instructors, guides, officers, or representatives.

I agree that should any part or portion of this Release Of Liability And Assumption Of Risk Agreement be found void and unenforceable that the rest of this agreement shall remain in effect.

Instead of a judicial determination of the parties' respective rights and obligations here under, the parties may agree to submit any dispute between the undersigned customer and Exotic Worldwide Adventures, Inc. to binding arbitration by an independent arbitrator in the State of Colorado. Each party will pay one-half of the cost of such arbitration unless the arbitrator shall find either parties' position so frivolous and unfounded that the arbitrator may assess all costs of arbitration against a single party.

I fully understand that Exotic Worldwide Adventures, Inc. reserves the right to utilize any part or portion of any photographic image, record of film, or digital representation in which I may be a subject, and I agree that Exotic Worldwide Adventures, Inc. may use any such photographic image, record of film, or digital representation for commercial and/or promotional purposes.
