  1. BACKGROUND CHECK AUTHORIZATION/PROOF OF IDENTITY

To the extent permitted by law, I authorize and give consent for Commonpoint Queens and its affiliates to perform a criminal background check, a sex offender registry check, and/or a driver’s license check, at the discretion of Commonpoint Queens until I revoke this consent or terminate my volunteering in writing, or until Commonpoint Queens terminates my volunteering in writing. I understand and agree that it is up to the discretion of Commonpoint Queens whether to accept me as a Volunteer and whether and when to terminate my volunteer status. I agree to provide a valid state driver’s license (or a valid passport or other photo ID if I do not drive), and two (2) references as part of this application.

I understand that in assuming my responsibilities as a Volunteer for Commonpoint Queens and its affiliates, I may have access to information which is proprietary for Commonpoint Queens and its affiliates and/or personal information about clients of the Agency.

  1. WAIVER AND HOLD HARMLESS

I agree with the following: I attest that I am physically fit and prepared for any volunteer assignment that I choose to accept. In consideration of my acceptance as a volunteer, I hereby agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless Commonpoint Queens, and its affiliates and sponsors and their officers, directors, employees, representatives, and agents, from and against any and all claims for bodily injury (including death), personal injury, losses, damages, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) that may occur or be incurred during or in connection with my volunteering, whether arising from the negligence of such persons or entities or otherwise.

 

  1. PRESS/PHOTO RELEASE

I grant full permission for Commonpoint Queens and its affiliates and sponsors to photograph, record, and videotape me in connection with my volunteering activities. I further grant Commonpoint Queens the absolute right to copyright, publish, use, sell or assign any and all photographs, television spots, movie films, videotapes, and sound recordings of me or my likeness without my prior approval or in connection with my volunteer duties.
