It is most important that you read the following before signing.
I understand and agree that:
- In the course of volunteering for the Pure Silk Championship (“Tournament”), I may be dealing with confidential information and I agree to keep such information in the strictest confidence.
- The relationship between the Tournament and volunteers may be discontinued at any time by either the volunteer or the Tournament.
- I am strictly a volunteer, not an employee of the Tournament; that I volunteer my services freely and without pressure or coercion, direct or implied, from the Tournament; and, that there has been no promise of nor do I have an expectation of receiving compensation or other benefits.
- I grant to LPGA and LTPO the unrestricted and assignable right throughout the universe in perpetuity to use my likeness, voice, and words in television, radio, pictures, videotapes, film or any other form now known or hereinafter devised to promote activities of the Tournament or the LPGA without compensation or any other benefit. I waive any claim of ownership to and acknowledge and agree that LPGA owns all media rights (now existing or later developed) associated with the Tournament and ancillary activities related thereto, including without limitation all accounts, descriptions, recorded images (still or moving), sound recordings, and scoring-related data of, from and at the Tournament (“Reproduction”). Without the express prior written consent of LPGA, I agree not to capture, transmit or facilitate transmission of any Reproduction on the days of competitive golf rounds (normally Thursday-Sunday) and not to stream or facilitate streaming of any Reproduction on any day of the Tournament, including without limitation, practice and pro-am days. I agree that in no event will I use or authorize others to use any Reproduction for any commercial or promotional purpose, and that any editorial uses of Reproductions require an official media credential. Upon reasonable request by LPGA, I agree to sign any documents necessary to perfect the above waivers and LPGA’s ownership of all Reproductions.
- I ASSUME ALL RISKS AND DANGER SURROUNDING AND ASSOCIATED WITH MY PARTICIPATION IN ACTIVITIES AND EVENTS ORGANIZED AND SPONSORED BY THE TOURNAMENT, from known, unknown, obvious and hidden conditions, including, without limitation, being struck by misdirected golf balls or carts, falls on and/or around the Tournament golf course and surrounding areas, and actions of third parties, whether such risk or danger occurs prior to, during, or subsequent thereto. In consideration for allowing me to participate as a volunteer and all other benefits to me arising therefrom, I, my personal representatives and administrators, heirs, and next of kin hereby waive, release, covenant not to sue, and forever discharge the Tournament, LPGA Tournament Properties One, LLC, Ladies Professional Golf Association, and each of their affiliated, related or owned companies, and all other persons and entities, including but not limited to, host club, sponsors, players, employees, agencies, media producers and distributors, insurance carriers, volunteers, providers of first aid and independent contractors liable or who might be claimed to be liable (collectively, “Releasees”) from and against any and all injuries, losses, damages, claims, actions, and any liability of any kind (including, without limitation, personal injury, death, or loss or damage to personal, private, or other property), whether caused by the negligence of Releasees or otherwise, as a result of or in connection with my volunteering and/or presence at the Tournament. I further agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Releasees for any liability, demand, judgment, claim or suit, including reasonable costs and attorney fees, arising out of or in connection with my acts or omissions or allegations thereof as a volunteer for the Tournament and/or while I am on the Tournament property.
- In the event that I am unable to do so on my own because of injury or illness, I consent to administration of first aid and/or medical treatment, and agree to indemnify, waive, release, covenant not to sue, and forever discharge Releasees from any and all liability or claims arising out of such treatment.
- The nature of the Tournament and the participating athletes make it necessary to have in place a screening process for all volunteers. My signature shall serve as authorization to perform a record information check including, but not limited to, criminal and/or civil records. Additionally, I will timely complete any documents or take any other actions reasonably necessary or desirable to facilitate performance of such background checks. If I am participating as a volunteer for transportation purposes, I give further authorization to request a motor vehicle record (“MVR”) report. Based upon data received in MVR reports, I may be removed from the Tournament transportation committee at the sole discretion of the Tournament, LPGA, or LTPO. Prior to serving on the transportation committee, I understand that I must present a valid U.S. state-issued driver’s license.
- I attest that I have never been found guilty of, or entered a plea of guilty or of nolo contendere (i.e., no contest) to a crime determined to be a misdemeanor or felony. I further attest that I have never been judicially determined to have committed abuse or neglect against a person, child, or animal. Under penalty of perjury, I hereby declare that the attestations above are true to the best of my knowledge and belief. I understand that I must present a valid government issued photo ID prior to serving as a Tournament volunteer.
I affirm that I have read this Volunteer Disclosure, Waiver and Release Statement, understand it, and agree to sign it willingly and accept its terms and conditions. This form may be released to any third party in order that the volunteer may receive medical care in the event of illness or injury.
