An agreement says:

"I hereby expressly release, discharge and waive all claims, demands, losses and liabilities...which may arise from my participation...hereunder or as a result of the exploitation of the rights granted hereunder."

What is exactly is meant by "exploitation" here?

Seems like "as a result of the utilization of the rights granted hereunder" would have the same meaning and reach the same goal (waiver of claims).

Not sure if this is a term of art, so to speak, though and if it's not used then the meaning of the provision would change (lessen the company's protection).

"Utilization of" and "exploitation of" mean the same thing in this context.
