Acknowledgement of Risk and Assumption of Personal Responsibility
and Confidentiality Agreement
Pinelands Preservation Alliance's (PPA’s) volunteer activities are fun and educational. There are, however, potential hazards in volunteer activities. In addition, during the course of your volunteer work, you may have access to or acquire knowledge of donors, deliberations, locations of endangered species or ecologically sensitive habitat, or other confidential information relating to PPA and its activities.
We ask our volunteers to carefully review the below statements and sign this acknowledgement of risk and assumption of personal responsibility and confidentiality agreement:
I understand that during my participation in a Pinelands Preservation Alliance volunteer activity, I may be exposed to inclement weather, insects, terrain, water and other risks, whether such volunteer activities take place on PPA property or elsewhere.
I understand that it is impossible for the Pinelands Preservation Alliance to guarantee absolute safety. I understand that I am responsible for my safety during my volunteer activities, and I assume that responsibility. I agree to comply with the instructions and directions of PPA staff during all volunteer activities. I accept responsibility to verify with my physician that I have no physical or psychological problems that would prohibit my participation in these activities, and I accept responsibility for conditioning myself to be reasonably prepared for the activities for which I have volunteered. I understand that PPA cannot provide medicine or medical care to me during a volunteer activity and that I am responsible for anticipating and handling any medical conditions that may arise during such activities.
Specifically, I, on behalf of myself and my family, successors or assigns, hereby voluntarily agree to release, waive, discharge, hold harmless, defend and indemnify Pinelands Preservation Alliance, and its employees, trustees, officers and agents, from any and all claims, actions, or losses for bodily injury, property damage, wrongful death, loss of services or otherwise, whether or not caused by their negligence or gross negligence, that may arise out of my participation in the Pinelands Preservation Alliance volunteer activity.
I agree not to disclose to any person who is not an employee of PPA any documents or information regarding the organization or its trustees, donors, supporters, activities or volunteers which I receive in the course of, or as a result of, my volunteer activities for PPA, unless I have received prior express instructions to do so from PPA staff.
