As further consideration for your participation in the GUW program, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the released parties for all claims, judgments, and costs, including attorney’s fees, incurred in connection with any such claims, demands, actions or causes of action brought by or on your behalf.
In addition, you recognize that you are traveling as a tourist and, while on site, will be the guest of the local people and the sponsoring organization. Consequently, you agree to abide by all applicable rules of the sponsoring organization and the laws of the government in the places of the program offering.

The law of Minnesota shall control all questions relating to the construction, operation, validity and performance of this agreement.
