CDF Team Gluten-Free Agreement and Release
As a CDF Team Gluten-Free participant, I understand and agree to the following:
-I grant a perpetual, royalty-free license to Celiac Disease Foundation (“the Foundation”) to use my name, image and/or likeness for the purpose of promoting CDF Team Gluten-Free in any manner worldwide – either in print material, radio or television broadcast, online or any other medium, in any manner whether presently in existence or hereinafter developed.
-I acknowledge that I have voluntarily agreed to be a CDF Team Gluten-Free participant. I hereby, for myself and my heirs, administrators, and executors, covenant not to sue and release, waive and forever discharge, the Foundation and its affiliates, agents, directors, employees, volunteers, representatives, successors, assigns or anyone acting for or on their behalf (“Releasees”), from all claims, demands, actions or causes of action, losses, damages, costs or injuries of whatever kind or nature, either in law or in equity, arising from or by reason of any bodily injury or personal injuries known or unknown, death or property damage resulting from my participation in a CDF Team Gluten-Free Event, or any activities in connection with the Event whether caused by the negligence of any Releasees or otherwise or on account of first-aid or other medical treatment or service, if any, rendered during or as a result of my participation in the Event. I hereby, for myself and my heirs, administrators, and executors agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Releasees, from all liabilities, losses, damages or costs of any nature whatsoever (including court costs and legal fees) incurred by any Releasees as a result of my participation in the Event or any other activities related to the Event.
-I certify that, should I participate in an athletic event, that I am aware of the physical demands and hazards of training for and participating in this event, and that I am physically fit and will train sufficiently for participation in this event.
-I acknowledge that should I set up a fundraising page, I will set a fundraising goal to support the mission of the Celiac Disease Foundation and will use my best efforts to achieve (or exceed!) at least that amount.
-I acknowledge that I am responsible for all event or effort costs, that registration fees are considered a donation to the Celiac Disease Foundation and are not refundable, and that the Foundation will not issue tax receipts or let me use the Foundation’s 501(c)3 status for any sponsorship donations I receive directly.
– If I am unable to participate in my chosen event or complete my effort for any reason, I accept responsibility for donating and promptly sending any money that I raise to the Foundation.
-I will submit all materials for my event to the CDF Team Gluten-Free staff for review and approval before they are made public. This includes, but is not limited to, press releases, pitch letters, printed or electronic advertisements, save-the-dates and invitations, brochures, items, and any other form of event collateral. When describing my event in a press release and/or interview, it will be made clear that the event is a “CDF Team Gluten-Free event to benefit the Celiac Disease Foundation” and is not a Celiac Disease Foundation sponsored or hosted event. For written materials, I will use the following sentence: “[Insert name of event] is a CDF Team Gluten-Free event to benefit the Celiac Disease Foundation.”
-I may create materials and items (shirts, hats, etc.) for my event with the CDF Team Gluten-Free logo as long as the logo is not redrawn or modified in any way and as long as the items are not being sold. I acknowledge that CDF Team Gluten-Free staff must review and approve items before they are made public. I acknowledge and agree that I will not use the Foundation’s logo.
-I will notify the CDF Team Gluten-Free staff before making requests for celebrity involvement.
-I acknowledge that, should I wish to market or sell any product or service to benefit the Celiac Disease Foundation, I must first contact CDF Team Gluten-Free staff for approval. Once approved, I may use the CDF Team Gluten-Free name and/or logo on my website and marketing materials and must specify that all moneys raised, or if less, the minimum amount that will be donated to the Celiac Disease Foundation. I will not market or sell any other product or service that bears the CDF Team Gluten-Free or Celiac Disease Foundation logos and/or names unless expressly approved as set forth above.
I have carefully read this Agreement and fully understand and accept its contents.
