This Release Agreement (the “Agreement”) is dated and effective (the “Effective Date”) on the moment, date and time, your account is created and registered on the Gesture for Vendors platform (the “Platform”), and is by and between Gesture US, Inc., having its principal place of business located at 1412 Broadway, New York, NY 10018 #21 (“Gesture”) and the business owner or person whom is responsible for the business or vendor (the “Vendor”) location stated in the account registration on the Platform (collectively referred to as the “Parties”, and each, a “Party”).

WHEREAS, the Parties have entered into a Vendor Agreement, dated on the day the Vendor account is created on the Platform, and now wish to enter to such Vendor Agreement.

Now, Therefore, in and for the consideration of the premises contained herein, and in further consideration of the benefits and advantages flowing from each party to the other, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the Parties agree as follows:

  1. Mutual Release.

    1. In consideration of the covenants, agreements and undertakings of the Parties under this Agreement each Party, on behalf of itself and its respective present and former parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, shareholders, members, successors, and assigns (collectively, "Releasors") hereby releases, waives, and forever discharges the other Party and its respective present and former, direct and indirect, parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, officers, directors, shareholders, members, agents, representatives, permitted successors, and permitted assigns (collectively, "Releasees") of and from any and all actions, causes of action, suits, losses, liabilities, rights, debts, dues, sums of money, accounts, reckonings, obligations, costs, expenses, liens, bonds, bills, specialties, covenants, contracts, controversies, agreements, promises, variances, trespasses, damages, judgments, extents, executions, claims, and demands, of every kind and nature whatsoever, whether now known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen, matured or unmatured, suspected or unsuspected, in law, admiralty, or equity (collectively, "Claims"), which any of such Releasors ever had, now have, or hereafter can, shall, or may have against any of such Releasees for, upon, or by reason of any matter, cause, or thing whatsoever from the beginning of time through the date of this Agreement arising out of or relating to the Vendor Agreement, except for any surviving obligations under the Vendor Agreement and Claims relating to rights and obligations preserved by, created by or otherwise arising out of this Agreement.

    2. Each Releasor understands that it may later discover Claims or facts that may be different from, or in addition to, those that it or any other Releasor now knows or believes to exist regarding the subject matter of the release contained in this Section 1, and which, if known at the time of signing this Agreement, may have materially affected this Agreement and such Party's decision to enter into it and grant the release contained in this Section 1. Nevertheless, the Releasors intend to fully, finally and forever settle and release all Claims that now exist, may exist, or previously existed, as set out in the release contained in this Section 1, whether known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen, or suspected or unsuspected, and the release given herein is and will remain in effect as a complete release, notwithstanding the discovery or existence of such additional or different facts. The Releasors hereby waive any right or Claim that might arise as a result of such different or additional Claims or facts. The Releasors have been made aware of, and understand, the provisions of California Civil Code Section 1542 (“Section 1542”), which provides ”A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.” The Releasors expressly, knowingly, and intentionally waive any and all rights, benefits, and protections of Section 1542 and of any other state or federal statute or common law principle limiting the scope of a general release.
