Huku and its sponsors and vendors sometimes take photos and videos at Huku Events, and later use them for promotional purposes. By participating or attending any Huku Event, you agree that you may appear in some of these photos and videos, and you authorize their use in this fashion. On the flip side, if you take any photos or videos of attendees at a Huku Event and provide them to us, you authorize us to use them in the same fashion, and represent that the attendees that appear in your photos and videos have also consented to such use.
We don’t control Non-Huku Events or the people that organize them. It’s possible that organizers or attendees of Non-Huku Events will take photos or shoot videos in which you appear and then post them online (including, possibly, the Huku site). By RSVP’ing to a Non-Huku Event listed on the Huku site, you authoize Huku’s use of such media for promotional purposes.
You represent that (a) you are at least 21 years old (or otherwise over the legal drinking age in your jurisdiction), (b) you have the requisite power and authority to enter into these Event Terms, and (c) you have read and understood these Event Terms as well as Huku’s Terms of Service and Content Guidelines.
(a) Assumption of Risk. Although we try to create a safe environment at Huku Events, accidents or other bad things happen, even to good people. We ask that you do your part to help limit the possibility that you might get injured at an event listed on Huku.
You agree to carefully consider the inherent risks in any activities that you choose to take part in and to take reasonable precautions before you choose to attend or participate at an event listed on Huku. For example, you should ensure that you are in good physical health before engaging in any physical activity at an event listed on Huku, and you should always drink responsibly given the risks associated with drunk driving and participating in activities while your judgment is impaired. Second, please note that some of the other event guests may be less responsible than you, and may themselves create additional risk to you despite their best intentions.
In sum, you understand that your attendance and participation at an event listed on Huku is voluntary, and you agree to assume responsibility for any resulting injuries to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law.
By the same token, you agree that Huku is not responsible for any injuries or accidents that you might sustain at Non-Huku Events listed on the Huku site.
(b) Release of Liability. You (for yourself, your heirs, personal representatives, or assigns, and anyone else who might make a claim on your behalf) hereby release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue Huku and its respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, partners, shareholders, members, agents, employees, vendors, sponsors, and volunteers from any and all claims, demands, causes of action, damages, losses or expenses (including court costs and reasonable attorneys fees) which may arise out of, result from, or relate in any way to your attendance at any Huku or Non-Huku Event, except, of course, for any gross negligence or willful misconduct on our part.
(c) Indemnity. By the same token, you agree to indemnify and hold Huku, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives harmless, including costs, liabilities and legal fees, from any claim or demand made by any third party due to, related to, or connected with your attendance or conduct at any Huku or Non-Huku Event.
While we hope not to, Huku may prohibit your attendance at any Huku Event at any time if you fail to abide by these Event Terms, the Terms of Service, or for any or no reason, without notice or liability of any kind. In the event of any termination, whether by you or us, Sections 1, 3-9 of these Event Terms will continue in full force and effect.
California law will govern these Event Terms, as well as any claim, cause of action or dispute that might arise between you and Huku (a “Claim”), without regard to conflict of law provisions. FOR ANY CLAIM BROUGHT BY EITHER PARTY, YOU AGREE TO SUBMIT AND CONSENT TO THE PERSONAL AND EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION IN, AND THE EXCLUSIVE VENUE OF, THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED WITHIN SAN FRANCISCO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA.
You agree that you will not represent yourself as an employee, representative, or agent of Huku (unless, of course, you are actually employed by Huku, in which case these Event Terms will govern your participation in any Huku Event to the extent such Terms are not inconsistent with Huku’s standard employment agreements or policies). We reserve the right to cancel any Huku Event (or un-list a non-Huku event) at any time, for any reason, and without liability or prejudice. Any failure on Huku’s part to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Event Terms does not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Event Terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Event Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
From time to time, members of the Huku Community organize their own meet-ups and events (sometimes called “UHEs” or “Unofficial Huku Events”). Although Huku representatives sometimes join in the fun, UHEs are Non-Huku Events and are not sponsored or endorsed by Huku, even when they are promoted on the Huku website. If you organize a UHE, you agree to (a) promote it as such, and (b) not create the impression that it is sponsored or endorsed by Huku. All terms and conditions relating to Non-Huku Events apply equally to UHEs.
