Terms & Policies

 

MVP AGREEMENT

I (or parent or guardian if enrollee is under 18) am an enrollee for a MVP International Athletics international trip. By checking the box and completing the trip registration, I understand and agree to the following:

That my international trip is operated by MVP International Athletics ("MVP").

That my trip begins with the takeoff from the MVP departure airport and ends upon completion of the flight back to the MVP airport. I further understand that international travel involves certain risks to personal health, safety and property. Many foreign countries do not have the safety and health standards that are present in the United States. I am willing to accept the associated risks and understand that MVP cannot guarantee the health and safety of travelers in a foreign trip or eliminate the risk from a foreign environment.

To release and hold harmless MVP and its affiliates (which term shall include parents, subsidiaries, officers, directors, shareholders, agents and employees of MVP as well as MVP itself) and Group Leader (the "Released Parties") from, and agree not to sue the Released Parties for, any and all claims, of any nature related in any manner to my participation in a MVP sponsored trip, including but not limited to, claims for negligence, breach of contract, breach of express or implied warranties, or wrongful death or any statutorily based claim. I hereby unconditionally and unequivocally waive any and all claims and demands for all damages, losses, costs and expenses of any nature whatsoever (including attorneys' fees) on account of or arising out of any and all personal injury, death, bodily injury, mental anguish, emotional distress, property or other damage that I may suffer from any cause whatsoever related in any way to my participation in any MVP sponsored trip. I further agree to release and hold harmless the Released Parties from any and all decisions to cancel, modify or delay the tour as a result of acts of God, war (whether declared or undeclared), terrorist activities or threats of terrorists activities, instability in a destination country, incidents of violence, public health issues or quarantine or threats of public health issues, substantial currency fluctuations, strikes, government restrictions, fire or severe weather conditions that make it impossible or commercially unreasonable in the sole opinion of MVP to conduct the trip. I further agree to hold the Released Parties harmless for the acts or omissions of any other individuals or entities over which the Released Parties have no direct or indirect control, including, without limitation, airlines, railways, bus companies, hotels, shipping companies, guides and sub-contracted agents or tour operators. I understand and acknowledge that MVP does not own or operate any of the entities that provide goods or services on our trip.

I further acknowledge that the Leaders/Directors assigned to my trip is an independent contractor and not an employee of MVP and MVP assumes no responsibility for his or her negligence or actions.

That MVP shall have no liability or responsibility for me when I am absent from MVP-supervised activities or for non-MVP-supervised activities, such as visits to friends or relatives or during stay-ahead/stay-behind option periods if the stay-ahead/stay-behind period does not include the services of a Leader/Director.

That MVP reserves the right to refuse or cancel my registration at their sole discretion. Leaders/Directors may also refuse or cancel any traveler's registration including my own.

To abide by MVP's rules and the directions of my Leader/Director or MVP's personnel during my trip. Failure to do so may result in terminating my tour immediately. I understand that to disobey such rules or directions is to waive the right to a refund of any part of my program fee, and that my Leader/Director may then send me home at my own expense.

To abide by all local laws when abroad, including those concerning drugs and alcohol. Minors must have parents' permission to use alcohol even if the local law would otherwise permit them to. If parental permission to use alcohol has been granted, minors may only drink beer and wine (no hard liquor), and must be in the presence of the Leader/Director. I understand that if I abuse or disobey such laws, even unintentionally, I waive my right to a refund of any part of the program fee, and my Leader or MVP may send me home at my own expense. I also understand that should local authorities be involved, I will be subject to the laws of the country I am visiting.

That if I become ill or incapacitated, MVP and its employees, or my Leader/Director, may take any action they deem necessary for my safety and well-being, including securing medical treatment (at my own expense) and transporting me home. MVP retains the right, in its sole discretion, to contact the traveler's parent(s) and/or guardian with regard to health issues or any matter whatsoever that relates to the traveler's tour. These rights transcend any and all privacy regulations that may apply. In the event of a medical emergency, MVP will attempt to cause appropriate treatment to be administered, and the traveler authorizes MVP to do so. MVP, however, makes no warranty that it will be able to cause effective (or any) emergency treatment to be administered.

That by enrolling on this tour, I have made the choice to travel with the Leader/Director organizing my group. I understand that this choice is not the responsibility of MVP. I understand that my Leader/Director is able to make decisions on my behalf, including but not limited to changing the group's requested tour or travel date and requiring that I purchase items such as insurance and optional excursions. I understand that a Leader/Director must accompany me on the trip.

That I will be required to pay for any phone calls or incidental personal expenses that I incur at hotels, as well as for any damage I cause to hotel rooms, buses or other property.

That this agreement along with "MVP Payment Plan and Cancellation Policy" constitute the entire agreement between MVP and me with reference to the subject matter herein, and I do not rely upon any promises, inducements or agreements not herein, including but not limited to any oral statements made to me by any agents or employees of MVP or my Leader/Director. This agreement may be amended or modified only in writing, signed by both parties. The waiver by MVP of any provision of this agreement shall in no way affect the remaining provisions of this agreement, and this agreement shall be interpreted as if such clause or provision were not contained herein.

That this agreement shall be governed in all respects, and performance hereunder shall be judged, by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia. In the event of any claim, dispute or proceeding arising out of my relationship with MVP, or any claim which in contract, tort, or otherwise at law or in equity arises between the Released Parties, whether or not related to this agreement, the parties submit and consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts of the Commonwealth of Virginia and of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia..

That MVP may use any film likenesses taken of me and any of my comments while on a MVP trip for future publicity and also use my contact information for future MVP promotions.

Currency Fluctuation:

In the event of drastic fluctuation in foreign exchange rates, MVP does reserve the right to increase charges equivalent to the difference of the foreign exchange rate at the date of trip registration and the date in which the trip occurs and/or when payments deadlines are required from vendors. MVP has established financial instruments in place to ensure that this will be avoided at absolutely all costs.
