- As consideration for being permitted by Corazón to participate in the Corazón Activities and use their tools and facilities, I hereby agree that I, my assignees, my heirs, distributees, guardians, and legal representatives will not make a claim against, sue, or attach the property of Corazón, or the suppliers of any of the tools or equipment I will use in the Corazón Activities, for injury or damage resulting from the negligence or other acts, howsoever caused, by any employee, agent, contractor of or other participant in Corazón Activities.

I agree that in the event that any provision herein is deemed invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such clause or provision shall not otherwise affect the remaining provisions of this Release, which remaining provisions shall continue to be enforceable.
. Waiver of California Civil Code Section 1542. I acknowledge that I have been advised regarding the effect of California Civil Code Section 1542, which provides as follows:
“a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
I, HAVING BEEN SO ADVISED; HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE THE PROVISIONS OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542.
I am aware that construction is a hazardous activity. I am voluntarily participating in the activities of construction with the knowledge of the danger involved and with the knowledge that medical facilities may not be available in the event of injury to myself. I hereby agree to accept any and all risks of injury or death, and verify this statement by placing my initials here:
