Release and Waiver of Liability
This Release and Waiver of Liability (the “Release”) is executed on the day of November 16, 2019, by the signee below (the “Volunteer”) in favor of The Crayon Initiative, and their respective directors, officers, trustees, employees, volunteers and agents (collectively, the “Released Parties”).
I, the Volunteer, desire to work as a volunteer for one or more of the Released Parties and engage in the activities related to being a volunteer for The Crayon Initiative ("Activities"). I understand that the Activities may include but are not limited to the following: working in The Crayon Initiative offices or production facilities; traveling to and from volunteering events, towns, cities or states; consuming food available or provided.
I, the Volunteer, hereby freely, voluntarily and without duress execute this Release under the following terms:
Release and Waiver. I, the Volunteer, do hereby release and forever discharge and hold harmless the Released Parties and their successors and assigns from any and all liability, claims and demands which I or my heirs, assigns, next of kin or legal representatives may have or which may hereinafter accrue with respect to any bodily injury, personal injury, illness, death or property damage which arise or may hereafter arise from or is in any way related to my Activities with any of the Released Parties, whether caused wholly or in part by the simple negligence, fault or other misconduct, other than intentional or grossly negligent conduct, of any of the Released Parties.
I understand and acknowledge that by this Release I knowingly assume the risk of injury, harm and loss associated with the Activities. I also understand that the Released Parties do not assume any responsibility for or obligation to provide financial assistance or other assistance, including but not limited to medical, health or disability insurance in the event of injury, illness, death or property damage.
Medical Treatment. I, the Volunteer, do hereby release and forever discharge the Released Parties from any claim or action whatsoever which arises or may hereafter arise on account of any first aid, treatment or service rendered in connection with my Activities with any of the Released Parties, whether administered by any Released Party or by third party medical or other personnel.
Assumption of the Risk. I, the Volunteer, understand that my Activities may include work that may be hazardous to me, including, but not limited to, the following: travel to and from the work sites; loading and unloading of heavy items; working with hot materials; and exposure to talc, asbestos, and bacteria, which may cause or worsen certain illnesses, especially if I do not wear protective equipment, am exposed for extended periods of time, or have a pre-existing immune system deficiency.
I hereby expressly and specifically assume the risk of injury or harm in the Activities and release the Released Parties from all liability for any loss, cost, expense, injury, illness, death, or property damage resulting directly or indirectly from the Activities.
Insurance. I, the Volunteer, understand that, except as otherwise agreed to by the Released Parties in writing, the Released Parties are under no obligation to provide, carry or maintain health, medical, travel, disability or other insurance coverage for any Volunteer. Each Volunteer is expected and encouraged to obtain his or her own health, medical, travel, disability or other insurance coverage.
Photographic Release. I, the Volunteer, do hereby grant and convey unto Released Parties all right, title and interest in any and all photographs and video or audio recordings of or including my image or voice, made by any of the Released Parties during my Activities with the Released Parties, including, but not limited to, the permission to record, edit, transcribe, use, duplicate, modify, distribute, and/or publicly exhibit the Volunteer's presentation or appearance, and use of Volunteer's name, likeness, voice and biographical information in connection with the foregoing at the event, in any and all media now existing or hereafter developed, throughout the world, in perpetuity, without restrictions or limitation, including the right to use such photographs or recordings for any purpose and to any royalties, proceeds or other benefits derived from them.
Other. I, the Volunteer, expressly agree that this Release is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of the state where the Activities take place. I further agree that in the event any clause or provision of this Release shall be held to be invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such clause or provision shall not otherwise affect the remaining clauses or provisions of this Release, which shall continue to be enforceable. Further, a waiver of a right under this Release does not prevent the exercise of any other right.
IN WITNESS WHERE OF, “Volunteer”, to express understanding of and agreement with this Release, signs here to execute this Release as of the day and year written above.
Dated: November 16, 2019
