Volunteer Release of All Claims and Waiver of Liability Form 

I understand that I will not receive any remuneration, salary, wage, payment or any employee benefits whatsoever, and I further understand that there is no employment relationship as a result of my volunteer activity. Further, I understand that the Halifax VegFest may in its sole discretion reassign me or terminate my services as a volunteer, without notice or compensation.
I grant the Halifax VegFest permission to use any photographs or videotape images of me taken in the course of my involvement, and to use my name, image, comment(s) and information regarding my volunteer role, activities, affiliation and city of residence for the Halifax VegFest’s purposes in any media and territory in perpetuity. I agree not to make any statements, written or verbal, or cause or encourage others to make any statement, written or verbal, that defame, disparage or in any way criticize the personal or business reputation, practices, or conduct of the Halifax VegFest, their employees, directors, officers and volunteers. I acknowledge and agree that this prohibition extends to statements, written or verbal, made to anyone, including but not limited to, the news media, any board of directors or advisory board of directors, industry analysts, competitors, strategic partners, vendors, employees and volunteers (past and present), donors and clients. My volunteer activity may involve personal risk and could result in property damage or bodily injury, and I hereby elect to voluntarily participate with full knowledge that said volunteer activity may be hazardous to me and my property. I voluntarily assume full responsibility for any risks of loss, property damage or personal injury, including death, that may be sustained by me, or any loss or damage to property owned by me, as a result of being engaged in such an activity, whether caused by the negligence of the Halifax VegFest or otherwise.
I waive and release any and all claims for myself, my heirs, executors and administrators against the Halifax VegFest and any other sponsor or organization involved, from any and all claims or liability for death, personal injury or property damage of any kind however caused, including any claim or liability arising from the negligence of the Halifax VegFest, its agents, servants, or employees and of any person on site, arising out of, or in the course of, my participation as a volunteer for which I choose to participate. This Release and Waiver extends to all claims, foreseen or unforeseen, known or unknown. I understand that volunteers are not considered employees under the Nova Scotia Occupational Health and Safety Act, and as such, are not afforded the same rights as employees under the act. As a result, I am not entitled to make any claims for compensation pursuant to the Nova Scotia Occupational Health and Safety Act.
I am aware of the nature and effect of the Release of All Claims and Waiver of Liability form that I am signing. I acknowledge having read, understood, and agree to the above conditions, release and waiver. I understand that the Halifax VegFest will not share my personal information with third parties.
