PhotoEnrichment Programs, Inc. and its employees, agents, representatives, shareholders, affiliates, officers, directors, successors, and assigns (collectively referred to as “PEP”) do not own or operate any entity which is to or does provide goods or services for your trip including, for example, lodging facilities, airline, vessel, or other transportation companies, guides or guide services, local ground operators, providers or organizers of optional excursions, food service or entertainment providers, etc. All such persons and entities are independent contractors. As a result, PEP is not liable for any negligent or willful act or failure to act of any such person or entity or of any other third party. PEP is not responsible whatsoever, in whole or part, and you, personally and on behalf of your dependents, heirs, and administrators release and hold PEP harmless from liability, for any occurrences, including but not limited to any delay, loss, accident, personal injury, illness or death, medical expenses, or property damage occasioned by fault or negligence of any person, employee, or company entrusted with the performance of such services, from whatever cause, to you or your dependents, arising out of or related to this agreement and/or PEP’s services. Because an activity is included in your program fee does not imply that it’s obligatory to participate, and so understand that you are participating in each activity voluntarily and at your own risk.
As a participant you understand that all travel contains some risks that may be caused by forces of nature, or negligence, or actions of others. You agree on behalf of your dependents, heirs, and administrators to release and hold PEP harmless from any and all liabilities, expenses, or inconveniences caused by late arrivals, departures, or any changes of schedule beyond our control, or the loss of or damage to your camera, other electronic equipment, accessories, luggage, money, jewelry, valuables, or other belongings whatsoever. Your airline ticket constitutes a contract between you and your airline. You are solely responsible for obtaining, scheduling, and arranging your own flight.
For any reason beyond our control, such as, but not limited to, Force Majeure or governmental actions, PEP shall have the right to cancel the program and refund all monies to the participant. Such refund shall be the sole measure of any damages for and in any claim against PEP, its officers, employees, or agents by you, your dependents, heirs, or administrators. We reserve the right to make changes to the program with or without notice that might be necessary based on changing schedules. PEP reserves the right to accept, decline or remove any person from the program at any time, without refund, who PEP deems to be incapable of meeting the rigors and requirements of participating in the activities or for behavior that is deemed to be disruptive to the group or program. Any claim or dispute by you, your dependents, heirs, or administrator against PEP arising out of or relating to this agreement and/or PEP’s services shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the rules then in effect and adapted by the American Arbitration Association, which arbitration shall take place in the County of Winnebago, State of Illinois. A request for arbitration must be filed within one month from the participant’s scheduled departure.
