“I, as Member or User, hereby accept all risk to health and injury or death that may result from participating in a meeting, event or presentation of the Calvin Strachan or its related businesses, and I hereby release Calvin Strachan, its assigns, officers, principals, employees, interns, contractors, sponsors and representatives, from any and all liability to me, my personal representatives, estate, heirs, next of kin or assigns, for any and all claims and causes of action for loss of, or damage to, my property, and for any and all illness or injury to my person, including my death, and for any posting of photos, videos or audio recordings of me, that may result from, or occur during, my participation in the event, meeting or presentation, whether caused by the Calvin Strachan, its assigns, principals, Board, officers, employees, representatives or others. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Calvin Strachan, its assigns and any third-party individual or company, from liability for the injury or death of any person, and damage to any property, that may result from my negligent or intentional acts or omissions, while I am attending and participating in the event, meeting or presentation.

K. The Calvin Strachan web site and Services are not substitutes for the advice and treatment of a licensed health care professional. Not all Services are suited for all who wish to participate. Calvin Strachan accepts no liability from Members or Users for injury or loss in connection, therewith. If you have specific concerns or a condition in which you require professional or medical advice, you should consult with a trained and qualified specialist, such as a licensed psychologist, physician or other health care professional. You should never disregard the medical advice of a psychologist, physician or other health care professional, or delay in seeking such advice, because of the information offered or provided by or through our web site or Services.
This may be especially true in any weight loss or health modification plan, which can result in serious injury. Calvin Strachan urges you to obtain a physical examination from a qualified medical doctor before implementing any weight loss or lifestyle changes or modifications. You agree that by using our Services, you do so entirely at your own risk.
A. Member and User agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Calvin Strachan, its web site, assigns and each of its respective advertisers, presenters, affiliates, suppliers, licensors, officers, principals, directors, shareholders, employees, representatives, contractors, agents and sub-licensees, from any and all claims (including, but not limited to, claims for defamation, trade disparagement, privacy and intellectual property infringement) and damages (including attorneys’ fees and court costs) arising from, or relating to, any allegation regarding:

Member and User agree that they will not hold Calvin Strachan or its assigns liable for any prize that is changed or replaced by another of a similar value or nature.

B. You are advised that there are inherent security risks in transmitting data, such as emails, payment or personal information, via the Internet, because it is impossible to safeguard completely against unauthorized access by third parties. Nevertheless, Calvin Strachan shall do what is reasonable to safeguard the data you provide to us, subject to this cautionary limitation.
