For the valuable consideration of participating in the Course, receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, I grant the Company and its designees the right to use my voice and/or likeness and my name as embodied in the recordings whether recorded on or transferred to video, film, audio, or other media, now known or later developed. This grant includes without limitation the right to edit, mix or duplicate and to use or re-use the recordings in whole or part as the Company may elect. The Company or its designee shall have complete ownership of the recordings in which my voice and/or likeness appears, including copyright interests, and I acknowledge that I have no interest or ownership in the recordings or their copyright. The Company will make reasonable efforts to exclude such material but retains ultimate discretion over the composition, use and distribution of the recordings.
a. Use & Exclusions. I recognize that for the most part these recordings will be shared only with other participants in the Course. But I acknowledge that it may be appropriate to share certain excerpts or clips more widely, so I grant the Company and its designees the right to broadcast, exhibit, market, and otherwise distribute the recordings, either in whole or in part, and either alone or with other products, for any commercial or non-commercial purposes that the Company or its designees in their sole discretion may determine. This grant includes the right to use the Product for promoting or publicizing any of the uses. If I happen to express myself in a way that is highly personal and private and I want that excluded from the recordings, I acknowledge that it will be my responsibility to make my request in writing to the support team within three (3) days of the date of the recording so that it can be excluded. The Company will make reasonable efforts to exclude such material but retains ultimate discretion over the composition, use and distribution of the recordings.
b. Rights. I confirm that I have the right to enter into this Agreement, that I am not restricted by any commitments to other parties, and that the Company has no financial commitment or obligations to me as a result of this Agreement. I hereby give all clearances, copyright and otherwise, for use of my voice and/or likeness embodied in the recordings. I expressly release and indemnify the Company and its officers, employees, agents and designees from any and all claims known and unknown, including but not limited to those based on libel, invasion of privacy or violation of any right of publicity, arising out of or in any way connected with the above granted uses and representations. The rights granted the Company herein are perpetual and worldwide. This consent shall be irrevocable and unconditional, and is entered into with my full knowledge and understanding of the consequences of granting this consent.

Permission is granted to temporarily download one copy of the Course Materials from the Company’s website for personal, non-commercial transitory viewing only.

Except as specifically set forth in this Agreement, the Company owns and retains all right, title, and interest in the website or content and any and all related Course Materials.
The Course Materials are provided “as is.” The Company makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaims and negates all other warranties, including without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights.

8. Risks and Waiver of Liability
I understand there are risks involved with any truly transformational program. I understand that I am participating in Courses in evolutionary spiritual practice. I recognize that the Course Materials include psychological, social and spiritual exercises that might be strenuous, stressful, and trigger physical, mental, psychological, and spiritual reactions.
I am fully aware of the risks and potential hazards involved in participating in such cutting edge transformative work. I understand that my participation in the Courses may release strong emotions and disorienting experiences, and I accept this possibility and the results of such emotional releases and disorientations. I acknowledge there are risks and dangers involved in my participation that the Company and its principals, employees, and contractors (collectively, Course Facilitators) cannot eliminate.
I understand that the Course Materials and associated support from Thomas Hübl and Course Facilitators are not offered as a substitute for professional mental health care or medical care and are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any mental health or medical conditions. I also understand that Thomas Hübl, the Company or Course Facilitators are not acting as mental health counselors or medical professionals, nor are they licensed as such.
Not all products and services are suited for everyone. The Company does not assume, and shall not have, any liability to users for injury or loss in connection with the School or Courses. The Company makes no representations or warranties and expressly disclaims any and all liability concerning any treatment or any action following the information, links or referrals offered or provided within or through the website or Course Materials. If you have specific concerns or a situation in which you require professional or medical advice, you should consult with an appropriately trained and qualified specialist, such as a licensed psychologist, physician or other health professional. Never disregard the medical advice of a psychologist, physician or other health professional, or delay in seeking such advice, because of the information offered or provided within, through the website, or Course Materials.
a. I am well enough to participate.
- Physical & Psychological Fitness. I acknowledge, represent, and warrant that I am physically and psychologically fit and have no medical condition that would prevent my full participation in the Courses.
- Personal Monitoring. I further understand that I am responsible to monitor my body and to immediately stop any exercise or activity that causes me any unacceptable discomfort, emotional distress or pain.
- Deep Relaxation and Altered States. I understand that certain exercises may produce a deep state of relaxation or an altered state of consciousness that may continue for many hours after the exercise is completed. I acknowledge that I may need to refrain from driving a vehicle or operating machinery after such an exercise session, and only commence when I am again capable of safely driving or operating machinery.
b. I accept and assume risks. I acknowledge that I am solely responsible for my welfare. In consideration for being permitted to participate in the Courses, I agree to assume full responsibility for all risks, injuries or damages, both known and unknown, that, though unlikely, might occur from my participating in such activities.
c. Independent assistance. I understand I may seek and obtain further counseling and/or crisis support from coaches, counselors or licensed therapists experienced with the principles of participating in the Courses or otherwise, all of whom are independent of the Company and Thomas Hübl. The Company assumes no responsibility with respect to the selection of a counselor or therapist or the outcome of treatment. I agree that in seeking such assistance I am relying solely on my own choice of such a person and am not relying on the Company for any assurance of success or warranty of outcome.
d. LIABILITY WAIVER AND COST INDEMNIFICATION: Because I acknowledge and assume full responsibility for my own physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being, I agree to waive all claims of liability and any lawsuit or other proceeding alleging injury to my person or property connected with my participation in the Courses. The intended beneficiaries of this waiver include Thomas Hübl, the Company, and its directors, officers, advisors, independent contractors, employees, mentors, trainers, and Course Facilitators. I agree to hold harmless and indemnify all such parties for any costs and legal fees arising from any legal or other claim or allegation of harm, injury, or negligence due to my participation in the Courses.
e. Release and waiver is as broad as possible. I agree that this release and waiver will be interpreted as broadly as the law allows, and that if part of this waiver is deemed invalid then the balance shall remain in effect.
In no event shall the Company be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption) arising out of the use or inability to use the materials on the School's website, even if the School or an authorized of the School has been notified orally or in writing of the possibility of such damage. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.
