Please read this form carefully and be aware that in purchasing and using products of Shark Mitigation Systems (SAMS), you will be assuming certain risks and potential legal liability, and you will be waiving and releasing all claims for injuries, damages or loss which you might sustain.
I am aware that SAMS has conducted certain tests and has determined from those tests that SAMS products will, in all likelihood, reduce the chances of a shark attack, but these results will require more years of testing, including the use of SAMS technology under different conditions, and neither SAMS, the testers, nor any retailer or licensee, can, or will, guarantee that any and all sharks will be deterred by the technology relied upon by SAMS, especially since the behavior of sharks cannot be fully predicted by SAMS or any other experts in the field. Furthermore, SAMS recommends that when a shark is sighted that the user should leave the water. I am also aware that there are inherent dangers, other than an attack by sharks, in ocean swimming, surfing, and other ocean activities, and that, even with SAMS water apparel or equipment, SAMS recommends that anyone participating in any ocean activity should be careful and avoid any undue risks or to seek to attract sharks.
Accordingly, I assume and accept all risks, including inherent risks, arising out of or associated with ocean swimming, surfing or other ocean activities, even with SAMS water apparel or equipment, regardless of the actions, failure of action, or any negligent conduct, on the part of SAMS, and I agree to indemnify and hold SAMS, its officers, directors and employees, and its representatives, including its retail dealers and licensees, harmless from any claims, demands, actions, liabilities, and costs that were caused by my misconduct, my misuse of the apparel or equipment, or my failure to accept and to abide by the terms of this Agreement, including any and all disclaimers made by SAMS. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the applicable legal jurisdictions where the SAMS apparel and equipment are sold or used.
