Licensee, its guests, agents, and ticket holders waive and release any such Claims, except for such Claims that are the direct and proximate result of the respective Indemnified Party's gross negligence or intentional misconduct. This release shall be binding upon the License, its guests, agents, and ticket holders’ heirs, distributees, next of kin, executors, administrators, personal representatives, and assigns.
- Communicable Diseases; Physical Condition: License, its guests, agents, and ticket holders understand that: their attendance at and/or participation in the Event involves risk of injury, illness, or death from many causes, including, without limitation, potential exposure to communicable diseases (e.g., MRSA, influenza, COVID-19, etc.); and the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by communicable diseases may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of themselves and/or others. License, its guests, agents, and ticket holders voluntarily agree to assume, and accept sole responsibility for, all of the foregoing risks. License, its guests, agents, and ticket holders understand and agree that this release includes without limitation any claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of the Indemnified Parties or other Event attendees and/or participants, and whether an infection occurs before, during, or after attendance at and/or participation in the Event. License, its guests, agents, and ticket holders acknowledge that their attendance at and/or participation in the Event is voluntary and may be terminated by them, the Coyotes, the Arena manager, or Arena security at any time. License, its guests, agents, and ticket holders hereby represent that they are in good health and sound physical condition and have no physical defects which could interfere with their attendance at and/or participation in the activities in the Event. License, its guests, agents, and ticket holders assume all responsibility for obtaining any physical examinations which may be indicated or advisable prior to attendance at and/or participation in the Event, and release, waive and discharge the Indemnified Parties from any liability, suits, claims, actions, and/or demands of any kind whatsoever related to or arising from (i) any decision by them not to obtain a physical examination prior to attending and/or participating in the Event or (ii) injury, illness, or death arising from or related to their attendance at and/or participation in the Event. This release shall be binding upon the License, its guests, agents, and ticket holders’ heirs, distributees, next of kin, executors, administrators, personal representatives, and assigns.
- No Subleasing; No Sale of Tickets: Neither the Suite, nor any part thereof, shall be assigned or subleased without the prior written consent of the Coyotes in each instance. Any such unauthorized attempt to assign or sublease the Suite shall be null and void and shall cause a termination of this Agreement and the immediate revocation of the License. Neither Licensee, nor any distributee of any tickets or parking passes issued to or purchased by Licensee under this Agreement, shall be permitted to sell such tickets or parking passes.
Force Majeure; Alternative Suites:
- For purposes of this License, a Force Majeure event includes a work stoppage, riot, civil insurrection, act of terrorism, national emergency, failure of utilities or other services, governmental action or requirement, act of God, act of war, natural disaster, severe or inclement weather, pandemic, epidemic, other health emergency, or any other events or circumstance beyond the Coyotes’ reasonable control. The Coyotes shall not be in breach of this Agreement if their performance is delayed, preempted, or prevented due to a Force Majeure event. Licensee’s continuous compliance with this Agreement in its entirety is a prerequisite for Licensee’s eligibility for the Force Majeure Remedy. In the event of the cancellation, postponement (longer than sixty (60) days), or non-performance of an Event due to Force Majeure, the Coyotes shall provide Licensee with either (i) a pro rata credit for the unused Event toward Licensee’s ticket purchases to eligible future events, or (ii) a pro rata refund of the Fee for the unused Event (the “Force Majeure Remedy”). To account for any received Event in a multiple Event package, the pro rata credit/refund amount for the Force Majeure Remedy shall be calculated by the Coyotes by subtracting the regular rental rate for each received Event (if any) from the Fee to arrive at the remaining balance due to Licensee as a credit/refund. It is understood and agreed that this Force Majeure Remedy shall be Licensee’s sole recourse in the event of Force Majeure.
- Without limiting the foregoing, the Coyotes may, in its discretion and for any reason, move Licensee from the Suite to a replacement suite for an Event, in which case, the replacement suite shall be considered the “Suite” for purposes of this Agreement.
- Arena Management; Security: The Coyotes make no warranty with respect to criminal or terrorist acts, and Licensee, its guests, agents, and ticket holders acknowledge and agree that the use of any security alarms, guards, screening devices, or patrols at the Arena: (i) may not be construed to defeat the disclaimer set forth in the preceding sentence; (ii) are provided in the Coyotes’ and/or the Arena manager’s, as applicable, sole discretion and may change from time to time; (iii) may not be construed as providing personal security for their benefit; (iv) may not be considered an admission of knowledge of any dangerous conditions; and (v) is not intended as an assumption of any greater duty than the minimum imposed by applicable laws upon commercial landowners without prior knowledge of criminal or terrorist acts.
- Miscellaneous: This Agreement shall be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Arizona. If any provisions of this Agreement shall be held invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement shall not be affected, but shall continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law. This Agreement contains the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the matters provided for herein, and shall supersede any and all prior agreements, understandings, representations and statements, oral or written, between the parties related to this License and the accompanying subject matter. No amendment or modification to this Agreement shall be effective unless the same is in writing and signed by both the Coyotes and Licensee.

The nature of interest granted herein is a license only and it is both limited and revocable by the Coyotes. The parties intend that no tenancy, leasehold estate, easement or interest other than a limited, revocable license be created hereby. This Agreement is non-cancellable. The Fees and other charges that are not paid within the times specified in the License (i) accrue interest at the rate of the greater of one and a half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum rate of interest permitted by applicable law and (ii) are subject to a ten percent (10%) late fee.
