ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY RELATING TO CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19
I hereby acknowledge that I am fully aware that the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 and its variants (collectively, “COVID-19”) are extremely contagious and are believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.
Compliance with All COVID-19-Realted Rules
I agree to obey all the rules and regulations applicable to the Event and instructions provided by the Mindvalley and Event organizers during my participation in the Event. While Mindvalley will use its best efforts to keep me informed and updated on the COVID-19 guidelines, rules, and regulations, I should not rely on Mindvalley’s guidance, and it is my sole responsibility to conduct my own research on applicable COVID-19 guidelines, rules and regulations. Additionally, I understand and acknowledge that COVID-19 guidelines, rules and regulations are subject to change, as COVID-19 and its consequences develop quickly, so I must always stay informed on any applicable COVID-19 guidelines, rules and regulations.
While I understand that I can choose to wear a mask during the Event, there might be participants who would choose not to wear a mask, and I give my informed consent to participate in the Event with participants not wearing a mask. Additionally, while I understand that I can choose to get vaccinated against COVID-19, there might be participants who would choose not to get vaccinated, and I give my informed consent to participate in the Event with participants not vaccinated against COVID-19.
I hereby represent and certify that as of the time of attending the Event:
- I have not experienced any symptoms of COVID-19, including, without limitation, dry cough, fever, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of sense of smell and/or taste;
- I have not been advised by a physician that I am COVID-19 positive or I have not tested positive in the past 14 days;

- I am physically able to participate in the Event, while following all safety rules put in place by Mindvalley, Event organizers, as well as the local government.
I am aware of the fact that Mindvalley has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, I understand and accept the fact that Mindvalley cannot guarantee that I will not become infected with COVID-19 while participating in the Event. Further, I am aware of the fact that participating in the Event could increase my risk of contracting COVID-19, regardless of whether I have been vaccinated or not for COVID-19. I shall immediately remove myself, report to Mindvalley and Event organizers, and conduct a PCR test, if I begin experiencing any of the COVID-19 symptoms. If I test positive for COVID-19, I shall quarantine for as long as required by the local laws, rules, and regulations. I understand and acknowledge that I am solely responsible for all the fees and costs incurred during the quarantine, including, without limitation, the PCR tests, hotel/accommodation expenses, flight changes, hospital and medical bills.
By signing this Waiver and Release, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by participating in the Event and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 during the Event may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, other Event participants, employees, volunteers, and contractors.
Assumption of Risk

I further understand that my participation in the Event may expose me to the risk of personal injury or death and/or causing me to acquire COVID-19 and transmit it to others. I hereby acknowledge that I am participating of my own free will in the Event and I agree to assume the full risk of any injuries and/or damages and/or losses of any kind, regardless of severity and including death, that may occur in connection with my participation in the Event.

I voluntarily agree to assume all of the forgoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I may experience or incur in connection with my participation in the Event (the “Claims”). On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless Mindvalley and its Representatives of and from the Claims, including, without limitation, all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. I understand and agree that this Waiver and Release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of Mindvalley and its Representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in the Event.
Cancellation and Refund Policy
I understand that I am solely responsible for booking flexible flight tickets and accommodations in the event a last-minute cancellation of the Event takes place due to COVID-19. I understand and acknowledge that any refundable or non-refundable expenses and costs incurred by me are not Mindvalley’s responsibility and will not be refunded or reimbursed by Mindvalley. I understand that I can request a full refund for the Event ticket only up to thirty (30) days before the start date of the Event.

I acknowledge that failure to have the required documents required by local authorities to enter Estonia and/or access the Event may result in me being prohibited to enter Estonia and/or participate in the Event, resulting in the forfeiture of my ticket.
I fully understand that when it comes to my hotel room/accommodation reservations, I have to directly contact the hotel/accommodation provider for any reservation changes or cancellations. I acknowledge that Mindvalley is not responsible in any manner, for my travel and accommodation expenses and costs, including, without limitation, any expenses and costs due to hotel room reservation changes or cancellations.
Waiver and Release of Liability
I, intending to be legally bound for myself and my heirs, personal representatives, next of kin, and anyone who might make a claim on my behalf, hereby waive, release, and discharge Mindvalley and its Representatives from any and all Claims for damages and/or liability, whether caused by any negligent act or omission of Mindvalley, or its officers, agents, employees, and/or volunteers, or otherwise related to my participation and promise not to sue Mindvalley or its Representatives for any damages I incur in connection with the Event. This Waiver and Release extends to all Claims of every kind or nature, whatsoever, foreseen or unforeseen, known or unknown.
