Virtual Programs Liability Agreement
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA) is conducting virtual programs for kids. During these programs, participants will need an internet connection and a device with functional video and audio. Participants will also be asked to have direct contact with their own pets, if applicable. The program will be conducted using Zoom for live meetings and Flipgrid for sharing in between meetings.
I/we agree that spcaLA may use and license others to use my/our name, voice, photograph, likeness and any biographical material for the licensing, marketing, advertising and promotion of the programs in all markets and media, including the internet. In connection therewith, I/we consent to have photographs and videos, with or without audio, taken of me/us for use in such licensing, marketing, advertising and promotions. I/we understand that participation in the program carries with it certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries. I/we understand that spcaLA does not control these risks. I/WE HEREBY ASSERT THAT MY PARTICIPATION IS VOLUNTARY AND THAT I KNOWINGLY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS.
I/we agree, for myself/ourselves and any and all heirs, not to sue spcaLA and/or anyone related to the programs and not to initiate or assist in the prosecution of any claim for damages or any cause of action which I/we may have arising from or related to my/our participation in any of the programs.
I/we agree, for myself/ourselves and any and all heirs, to indemnify and hold harmless spcaLA, its agents, volunteers and employees, including but not limited to program staff, from any and all liability claims, actions, suits, causes of action, expenses, attorneys’ fees, and damages of whatever kind or nature, in law, equity or otherwise, whether now known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, arising out of or in any way related to the programs.
I/we agree, for myself/ourselves and any and all heirs, to fully and forever release and discharge spcaLA, its agents, volunteers and employees, including but not limited to program staff (“Releases”) from any and all liability, claims, actions, suits, causes of action, expenses, attorneys’ fees and damages of whatever kind or nature, in law, equity or otherwise, whether now known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, arising out of or in any way related to the program.
Severability: The undersigned further expressly agrees that the foregoing waiver and assumption of risks agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the State of California and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF UNDERSTANDING: I HAVE READ THIS WAIVER OF LIABILITY, ASSUMPTION OF RISK, AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT, FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS TERMS, AND UNDERSTAND THAT I AM GIVING UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING MY RIGHT TO SUE. I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I AM SIGNING THE AGREEMENT FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY, AND INTEND BY MY SIGNATURE TO BE A COMPLETE AND UNCONDITIONAL RELEASE OF ALL LIABILITY TO THE GREATEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW.
