16. Member Conduct
No Member shall drink alcoholic beverages to excess. No alcohol shall be sold or transferred in violation of law, or venue policy, on Club premises, rented or owned. Your alcohol intake is not monitored by the Club, or venue, and you release and hold harmless and indemnify the Club from any damages that may occur due to your consumption of alcohol at Club events whether that be while operating a motor vehicle or otherwise. No weapons are permitted on Club premises or at Club events unless you are a uniformed police officer and are on duty and identify yourself as such. Possession of weapons is grounds for immediate termination of Membership. No gambling is allowed at Club events. No physical or verbal altercations are allowed at club events. Membership of any party involved in an altercation will immediately be terminated. No harassment, sexual or otherwise, will be permitted in the Club, at Club events, or on the Website. Any harassment shall be immediately reported to Club management. If the complaint is justified, the offending party’s Membership will be immediately terminated. Making false claims of harassment may be terms for loss of Membership. No prostitution or illegal solicitation for sexual activity is allowed or will be tolerated. If you are approached for such illegal activity you are required to notify Club Management immediately, and the offending party’s Membership will be immediately terminated. If you intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable local, state, or national law, regulation, rule or policy while participating in Club events your Membership will be immediately terminated. If you become disorderly and are asked to leave, you will do so immediately, and quietly. Your Membership may be immediately terminated if you fail to do so. If you are asked to leave more than once in any twelve-month period, your Membership will be immediately terminated. Not all members are invited to all Club events. The Club reserves the right to have private parties and will determine the guest list based on the activity, and you agree that this is reasonable and desirable for the Club. The rules of the Club may be modified at any time at the discretion of the Club’s management. You will not bring into the Club a camera or other recording device of any kind nor use any surveillance, photographic, camera, camera phone, video, digital, audio or other recording (audio or visual) or similar devices at any Club event. You will not copy or otherwise divulge or disclose any information or photograph contained on our website. You will not disclose in any print, broadcast, television, radio, or other form of media, the address, location, or Membership of the Club, or any information regarding any Members of the Club. You will not discuss the Club with any newspaper, magazine, television station, radio station, reporter or journalist. If you are employed by, or associated with, any news or investigative organization, and you violate any provision of this Membership Agreement, you agree that both you and the news or investigative organization in which you are affiliated shall be jointly and severally liable for damages resulting from such violation. Because determination of the amount of such damages would be difficult to ascertain, you agree, individually and on behalf of the news or investigative organization with which you are affiliated, that liquidated damages in the amount of one million dollars ($1,000,000) are reasonable, and such damages shall be paid in certified funds before publication or broadcast of any report you or the news or investigative organization with which you are affiliated prepare or participate in publishing or broadcasting. In the event prior payment of such damages is not made, and litigation is necessary, you and the news or investigative organization in which you are affiliated agree that Energy Underground shall be entitled to recover from you not only such liquidated damages amount but also its attorney’s fees and costs expended, as well as interest on such liquidated damages amount at the lesser of (i) the rate of twenty-one percent per annum, or (ii) the maximum rate permitted by applicable law, from the date of publication or broadcast until payment is made. You will not impersonate any person by falsely stating or otherwise misrepresenting your identification or affiliation with another person or entity. You will not disseminate any information related to the Club or its Members which in any manner violates the statutory or common law privacy rights of other Members. Violation of applicable rules of conduct in this section may result in you being reported to appropriate law-enforcement agencies. The provisions of this section shall survive the voluntary or involuntary termination of your Membership, are contractual, and not a mere recital.
