This is the Release of Liability, Code of Conduct, Medical Release and Publicity Release included on the Registration Site. By registering for the North American Jewish Outdoor Escape, you will agree to these terms.
I acknowledge that I have been informed that any activity or event advertised, organized, promoted, sponsored or conducted by Mosaic Outdoor Clubs of America, its international, national and state umbrella organizations, as well as all local chapters, groups and clubs, its assigns, licensees, legal representatives and their respective officers, directors, members and agents (collectively “MOCA”) may be hazardous, and may involve inherent risks to both person and property, including personal injury, loss, damage, or death.
Further, I understand and acknowledge that MOCA members and officers are lay volunteers, and do not have any special knowledge, training or skill in planning, scheduling, conducting or supervising MOCA activities or the transportation incidental to MOCA activities. MOCA contracts with individuals or organizations that are independent contractors (not employees or agents of Mosaic Outdoor Clubs of America’s) to conduct some of the activities participants may engage in or to supply services, lodging and food to participants. Although the MOCA has made efforts to locate responsible contractors, it does not supervise or control these contractors and is not responsible for their conduct. Participant acknowledges that they may independently investigate and assess these organizations and activities, if they choose to do so.
WITH FULL UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWLEDGE OF RISKS AND HAZARDS INHERENT IN THE PARTICIPATION IN SUCH ACTIVITIES, I HEREBY AGREE TO ASSUME THE RISKS OF INJURY THAT ARE A NATURAL PART OF MY PARTICIPATION IN MOCA ACTIVITIES AND I HEREBY AGREE FOR MYSELF, AND ALL OF MY FAMILY AND HEIRS, TO RELEASE MOCA, FROM ALL LIABILITY, CLAIMS, DEMANDS OR ANY CAUSES OF ACTION OF ANY KIND, IN TORT OR IN CONTRACT, WHICH MAY ARISE DURING MY PARTICIPATION IN OR MY TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM ANY ACTIVITIES OF MOCA.
I EXPRESSLY INTEND THIS RELEASE OF LIABILITY TO INCLUDE A RELEASE OF LIABILITY FOR ANY NEGLIGENT ACTS AND/OR OMISSIONS OF MOCA that cause me personal injury, death or other damage. I understand that a negligent act is an action that an ordinarily prudent person would not take under the same or similar circumstances, and a negligent omission is the failure to do an act that a person of ordinary prudence would do under the same or similar circumstances.
I agree to be solely responsible for my own safety while participating in MOCA activities. I will not sign up for or participate in MOCA activities for which I do not have the knowledge, skill, equipment and physical condition for safe participation.
MOCA is for (Singles and Couples) of all status. MOCA is not a forum for persons to proselytize the Jewish Community. Any person breaking any of the rules or bylaws of MOCA, including, but not limited to proselytizing to MOCA attendees or members at an event, may be sent home at their own expense and attendance will be revoked for that person to participate in any future MOCA events.
I agree to uphold and comply with the principles, purposes, by-laws and Code of Conduct of MOCA.
The terms of the Code of Conduct are put forth as follows:
Mosaic Outdoor Clubs of America (“MOCA”) and its affiliated clubs (collectively “Mosaic”) are committed to providing participants in Mosaic events with a safe and enjoyable environment. MOCA expects all participants to act as adults in a responsible and ethical matter. Rather than try to define every possible detail and circumstance, the purpose of this Code of Conduct is to provide a general statement and guidelines. MOCA relies on the good judgment of MOCA’s representatives, event leaders and the MOCA Board to provide guidance and appropriate action in specific instances.
I, hereby give Mosaic Outdoor Clubs of America, its assigns, licensees, and legal representatives (collectively “MOCA”) the irrevocable right to use copy, modify, adapt, distribute, publish, display, exhibit, or otherwise utilize my name (or any fictional name), picture, portrait, digital images, movies, videos or photograph in all forms and in all manners, including composite or distorted representations (the “Representations”), in media, types of advertising and promotion, or any other lawful purposes.
I hereby waive any and all rights that I may have over the use, distribution, transfer, display or other utilization of the Representations by MOCA, including, without limitation, any right to inspect and/or approve such use, distribution, transfer, display or other utilization.
I hereby release and discharge, MOCA from any and all claims arising from or related to the use of the Representations, including, but not limited to, claims for violation of copyright, invasion of privacy, right of publicity, and defamation.
I further acknowledge that I am to receive no compensation from MOCA than any good will and publicity that I may receive relating to the publication, distribution or other use of the Representations.
