Release and Waiver of Liability
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY - THIS IS A LEGAL DOCUMENT THAT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
 
This Release and Waiver of Liability (the “Release”) is executed by the undersigned (the “Volunteer”), in favor of Habitat for Humanity of Durham, Inc., Habitat for Humanity International, Inc., and any other Habitat for Humanity affiliated organization, 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 ("Activities").  I understand that my Activities may include but are not limited to the following: working in Habitat for Humanity offices or Habitat for Humanity ReStore operations; traveling to and from work sites, towns, cities or countries; consuming food available or provided; living in housing provided for volunteers; constructing and rehabilitating residential buildings; and other construction-related activities.
 
In consideration of Released Parties providing an opportunity to serve the Durham, NC low-income community and being permitted to work alongside Released Parties in its mission of building decent, and affordable housing, 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, demands, actions, cause of actions, of whatever kind or nature, either in law or in equity, 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 or of other volunteers.
 
I understand and acknowledge that by this Release I knowingly assume the risk of injury, harm, loss, and damages in any way 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.
 
It is the policy of Habitat for Humanity that children under the age of 16 are not allowed on Habitat for Humanity worksites while construction is in progress. It is further the policy of Habitat for Humanity that, while minors between the ages of 16 and 18 may be allowed to participate in construction work, using power tools, excavation, demolition, working on rooftops and similar activities are not permitted for anyone under the age of 18.
 
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.
 
If the Volunteer is less than 18 years of age, the Volunteer and the parents having legal custody and/or the legal guardians of the Volunteer (the “Guardians”) also hereby release and forever discharge the Released Parties from any claim whatsoever which arises or may hereafter arise on account of the decision by any representative or agent of the Released Parties to exercise the power to consent to medical or dental treatment as such power may be granted and authorized in a Parental Authorization for Treatment of a Minor Child.
 
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: construction; loading and unloading; travel to and from the work sites; and exposure to lead, asbestos, and mold, 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 understand there is some inherent risk in consuming local foods and living in local accommodations in the city(ies) or country(ies) visited. I understand I may be traveling to and from locations where there is a risk of terrorism, insurrection, war, criminal activities, inclement weather or other circumstances that could threaten my health or safety. I understand it is the policy of the Released Parties to not pay ransom or make any other payments to secure the release of hostages.
 
I hereby expressly and specifically assume the risk of injury or harm in the Activities and release Released Parties from all liability for any loss, cost, expense, injury, illness, death or property damage resulting directly or indirectly from 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 & MARKETING Release. I, the Volunteer, do hereby grant and convey unto Habitat for Humanity International, Inc., 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 Released Parties, including, but not limited to, the right to use such photographs or recordings for any purpose and to any royalties, proceeds or other benefits derived from them. I also grant that the Released Parties may email me about volunteering and other general information regarding the Released Parties.
 
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.
 
To express my understanding of and agreement with this Release, I sign below.
 
IMPORTANT: If the Volunteer is less than 18 years of age, a custodial parent or legal guardian must sign this Release.
 
In consideration of the (“Minor”) being permitted to volunteer and work alongside Released Parties, I acknowledge that I have read and understand this Release, agree to be bound by its terms, and further agree to indemnify and hold Released Parties harmless from any and all claims which are brought by, or on behalf of Minor, and which are in any way connected with way associated with the Activities.
 
I further understand that if only one custodial parent or guardian executes this Release on behalf of a Volunteer who is under 18 years of age, then the undersigned parent or guardian of the Volunteer hereby covenants, warrants, represents and agrees that he or she is executing this Release on behalf of, and as an agent for, any other individual who may be a parent or guardian of the Volunteer, and that by executing this Release, the undersigned is binding himself/herself, the Volunteer, and any other parent or guardian of the Volunteer, and all of their heirs, executors, personal representatives, assigns and estates to this Release.
 
PARENTAL AUTHORIZATION FOR TREATMENT OF, AND TRAVEL WITH, A MINOR CHILD
 
I, the parent or legal guardian having custody of the minor child, hereby authorize and appoint a duly authorized agent of Habitat for Humanity of Durham, an adult in whose care the minor child has been entrusted or, as my agent to act for me with respect to my minor child and in my name in any way I could act in person to make any and all decisions for me with respect to my minor child concerning my minor child’s personal care, medical treatment, hospitalization, and health care and to require, withhold or withdraw any type of medical treatment or procedure, including X-ray examination, anesthetic, medical or surgical diagnosis or treatment which may be rendered to my minor child under the general or special supervision and on the advice of any physician or surgeon licensed to practice in the state in which treatment is sought.  My agent shall have the same access to my minor child’s medical records that I have, including the right to disclose the contents to others. 
 
Also, I hereby authorize and appoint my agent to travel with my minor child to an emergency medical facility, and consent for my minor child to serve as a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity of Durham, and to help construct houses and participate in other activities on a voluntary basis, without compensation.
