I agree not to hold Viewpoint de Puerto Angel CA responsible should any of the Lessors their

Agents or suppliers: 1) fail to provide the services I have purchased; 2) fail to comply with any applicable law; or 3) engage in any negligent act of omission that causes me any sort of injury, damage, delay or other inconvenience.
