Warning of Assumption of Inherent Risks

the actions and behaviour of other third parties attending the Executive Brains Programs; and

Waiver of Liability for Ordinary Negligence
To the extent permitted by law, the Releasing Parties agree that under this agreement Executive Brains and the other Released Parties shall be excluded from liability for ordinary negligence in the conduct of the Executive Brains and the application of any of the provisions of Subdivision B, Division 1, Part 3-2 of the Australian Consumer Law and further, the Released Parties shall be excluded from liability under any civil liability or consumer law applicable to the State of Queensland subject to the exception that this exclusion of liability will not apply in circumstances where the conduct of Executive Brains or any of the Released Parties is reckless.
In consideration of being permitted to participate in an Executive Brains program, to the extent permitted by law, the Releasing Parties waive, release, covenant not to sue Executive Brains and the other Released Parties from any and all claims, actions, suits, demands, losses and other liabilities in relation to any of death, physical or mental injury, the contraction, aggravation or acceleration of a disease or the coming into existence, aggravation, acceleration or occurrence of any other condition, circumstance, activity, form of behaviour, course of conduct or state of affairs in relation to an individual that is or may be harmful or disadvantageous to the Releasing Parties (and/or participating minor child/ward) or the community or that may result in harm or disadvantage to the Releasing Parties (and/or my participating minor child/ward) or the community resulting from the INHERENT RISKS of an Executive Brains program or the ORDINARY NEGLIGENCE of Executive Brains (or other Released Parties) that the Releasing Parties (and/or participating minor child/ward) may have arising out of the Releasing Parties participation in an Executive Brains program. This Waiver does not apply if the exclusion, restriction or modification would apply to significant personal injury suffered by a person that is caused by the reckless conduct of Executive Brains or a Released Party.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Queensland, and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Queensland courts for any matter arising under or relating to this Agreement.
Mediation and Arbitration
In the event of a legal issue, the Releasing Parties agree to engage in good faith efforts to mediate any dispute that might arise. Any agreement reached will be formalized by a written contractual agreement at that time. Should the issue not be resolved by mediation within sixty (60) days of Executive Brains being notified by the Releasing Parties of such issue, the Releasing Parties agree that all disputes, controversies, or claims arising out of my participation in an Executive Brains program shall be submitted to binding arbitration. The seat of arbitration shall be Queensland, Australia. The language of the arbitration shall be English and the number of arbitrators shall be one (1). The cost of such action shall be shared equally by the parties.
I understand and agree that this Waiver is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of Australia and Queensland and that if any provision shall be found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be severed from this Agreement and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Furthermore, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained within this Agreement, this Agreement will not be read or applied so as to purport to exclude, restrict or modify or have the effect of excluding, restricting or modifying the application in relation to the supply of any services pursuant to this Agreement of any provision of any Act of the Commonwealth of Australia or of the State of Queensland which by law cannot be excluded, restricted or modified.
