In consideration for Collective’s services, I, on behalf of myself, and my minor child (if applicable), and my heirs and/or representatives, voluntarily enter into this Assumption of Risk, Waiver of Liability and Indemnity Agreement (“Agreement”). I hereby covenant not to sue and voluntarily agree to waive, release, indemnify, and hold harmless Collective and its officers, directors, agents, employees, volunteers, contractors, representatives, and property partners, including Governors Island Corporation, doing business as The Trust for Governors Island (collectively, “Releasees”) from any and all liability, causes of action, or claims for any injuries (including serious injuries and death) or damages as a result of my participation in any Collective Activity (which specifically includes activities put on by Collective and/or any activity that is run through a third party, including Collective’s property partners), whether caused by the ordinary negligence of Collective or the Releasees. I understand that this Agreement does not waive any claims resulting from gross negligence, willful, reckless or wanton misconduct by Collective. I also understand that Collective is not responsible for the acts of third parties under this Agreement.
- I voluntarily assume full responsibility for any risks of loss, property damage, or personal injury, including serious injuries or death, that may be sustained by me (or my minor child), as a result of my (or my minor child’s) participation in any Collective Activity, whether caused by negligence of Collective or otherwise. I have voluntarily elected to enter Collective’s premises and engage in Collective’s activities, including, but in no way limited to bicycling, yoga and lawn games, knowing that conditions may be hazardous, or may become hazardous to me and/or my property, and that access to medical personnel and/or facilities may be limited. Certain inherent risks involved in outdoor activities offered by Collective, include but are not limited to: inclement weather-related hazards, including extreme temperatures, wind, fire, ice, tornadoes; rugged terrain or bodies of water; wild animals and livestock; and, insects and poisonous plants. I also understand and acknowledge that additional unknown or unanticipated risks do exist that may result in injury or death. I understand that these risks are increased by the use of drugs or alcohol.

I also agree to indemnify and hold harmless Collective from any and all costs associated with my emergency care and transportation.
- My participation in any Collective Activity signifies that I have found the Equipment (which includes any equipment available or accessible on the property or any personal equipment I bring with me) and areas to be safe and acceptable to me. I accept full and sole responsibility for the condition and adequacy of my personal Equipment.
- I authorize Collective and the Releasees to take photographs or videos of me and to make recordings of my voice (“Media”) during my participation in any Collective Activity, and understand that any such Media will become the sole property of Collective. I further authorize Collective and the Releasees to use and/or profit from such Media for any legitimate business or commercial purpose, including but not limited to promotional, advertising, or marketing activities.
- This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York. I agree to submit any and all claims arising from my stay and/or participation in Collective Activities to binding Arbitration in New York County. I acknowledge that I am giving up the right to have my dispute decided in a court of law by a judge or jury. I further understand and agree that Collective will be entitled to recover attorneys’ fees and costs incurred defending against an action barred by this Agreement.
- We reserve the right to charge guests the cost of rectifying damage, caused by the deliberate, negligent or reckless act of the guest to the hotel’s property or structure. The amount charged to the guest will be the following:
