National CASA/GAL Registration Agreement and Liability Waiver (The Agreement and Waiver)

By registering for the 2021 charity run / walk organized by National Court Appointed Special Advocate / Guardian Ad Litem Association for Children (“National CASA/GAL”), I agree as follows.

  1. Waiver of Liability. I know that participating in a running and walking event is a potentially hazardous activity. None of the people I register (“Registrants”) should enter or participate unless they are medically able and properly trained. I assume all risks associated with their participation in this event, ranging from minor injuries to catastrophic injuries, including, but not limited to tripping and falling, contact with other participants, the effects of weather, traffic and the conditions of the road and death, all such risks being known and appreciated by me, and acknowledge that they cannot be eliminated completely. Having read this waiver and knowing these facts and in consideration of acceptance of my entry, I, for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release National CASA/GAL from all claims or liabilities of any kind arising out of Registrants’ participation in this event, including but not limited to if that liability arises out of negligence or carelessness on the part of Registrants. As used in this Agreement and Waiver, “National CASA/GAL” refers to National Court Appointed Special Advocate / Guardian Ad Litem Association for Children and any and all subsidiaries, affiliated entities, or entities that control or are controlled by National Court Appointed Special Advocate / Guardian Ad Litem Association for Children singly or together and their respective trustees, employees, sponsors, volunteers, contractors, subcontractors, authorized representatives, licensee, and agents, and the representatives and successors of each of the foregoing.
  2. Use of Name, Image, and Likeness. I hereby consent to the use by National CASA/GAL Association of the name, photo, likeness, image, handwriting, testimonial, and/or sound or video recording of each Registrant in any media now known or hereafter devised, including but not limited to images posted by me or others on other sites or platforms (collectively, “Content”) to promote or publicize National CASA/GAL business both internally and externally. I also hereby grant a gratis, perpetual, worldwide and irrevocable license to National CASA/GAL to use the Content in any manner or media, including, but not limited to, reproduction, sale, exhibition, copying, broadcast, performance, and distribution of the Content to promote its activities. I acknowledge and agree that National CASA/GAL may edit or combine the Content with other images, video, audio, text, and other media. I hereby release National CASA/GAL from any and all liability for its use of the Content and waive all claims and causes of action against National CASA/GAL arising from the use of the Content. I disclaim all rights of ownership, privacy, publicity, and attribution and moral rights in the Content. I expressly disclaim all rights to all value and benefits National CASA/GAL may gain through the use of the Content.
  3. Cancellation of Event. National CASA/GAL reserves the right to cancel or reschedule the event for any reason. In the event of event cancellation and/or reschedule, National CASA/GAL has no obligation to refund any registration fees, other moneys paid, or donations, and shall not be held responsible for any losses or damages that might happen due to the event cancellation and/or reschedule.
  4. Limitation of Liability for Registration Site. NATIONAL CASA/GAL SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, RESULTING FROM (A) THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE WEBSITE FOR REGISTERING FOR THE EVENT (“NATIONAL CASA/GAL REGISTRATION SITE”) OR (B) FOR THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND SERVICES OR (C) RESULTING FROM ANY GOODS OR SERVICES PURCHASED OR OBTAINED OR TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO OR THROUGH THE NATIONAL CASA/GAL SITE OR (D) RESULTING FROM UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF MY TRANSMISSIONS OR DATA, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLES, EVEN IF NATIONAL CASA/GAL HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
