RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY
I hereby agree to hold harmless, and to release and forever discharge NNOA, U.S. Government, United States Navy, and United States Naval Academy (USNA) and all of its officers, agents, employees, and successors (hereafter referred to as “Parties") and assigns acting officially or otherwise, from any and all claims, actions, or causes of action, on account of any loss or damage to property, personal injury or death, whenever they may arise, including aggravation of any preexisting condition, suffered by me, whatever the cause, including those damages, injuries, or deaths resulting from any defect or any error, act, or omission of any agent, officer, employee, volunteer, or third party.
This hold harmless agreement covers, but is not limited to, any property damage, personal injury, or death occurring during or as a result of my tour of USNA, including, but not limited to, a tour of naval vessels and boats moored at the base, static displays of equipment and other demonstrations.
I also agree to fully indemnify the Parties for any property damage, personal injury, or death which I may cause through negligence, willful misconduct, or deliberate unauthorized use of any equipment or property belonging to Parties including all court costs and reasonable attorney’s fees. Further, I agree to fully indemnify the Parties for any and all costs associated with any medical treatment and/or emergency response I may require as a result of personal injury or death associated with the tour of Parties, or naval property. The right of indemnification shall inure to the benefit of all successors in interest and assigns of the Parties, and the corresponding burden shall rest with any successors or assigns of mine and all those parties subject to this agreement, whether now known to me or as yet unascertained.
In order to enhance a STEM educational environment and promote proper personal growth habits, a dress code has been established for the NNOA STEM event. The purpose of this code is to remove distractive, disruptive, and dangerous apparel from the environment. The code has been written not to infringe upon the individuality of the students. In adopting this code, NNOA hopes to create a clean, healthy, and safe environment that will be conducive to good order and beneficial to all students. Students should wear appropriate, clean non-disruptive clothing, and in keeping with that intent, students are required to comply with the following: 1. Sunglasses may not be worn in classrooms unless medical reasons exist. 2. No hats may be worn within the buildings – uncover when entering buildings. 3. No clothing that promotes alcohol, drugs, violence, profanity, or is obscene as that word is construed by the United States Supreme Court decisions shall be worn. 4. Shorts of Bermuda short length are acceptable. Students may only be exempted from the provisions of the dress code due to health or handicapping conditions.
STANDARDS OF CONDUCT
Students are encouraged to always engage with others in a respectful manner. Actions that interfere with or threaten the orderly conduct of STEM event functions, or violate the written policy of the U.S. Navy, campus or shipboard rules will be grounds for immediate dismissal from the event. This applies to all STEM event and associated activities. Students are expected to follow the direction of event leaders and volunteers, refrain from displays of affection in public, outburst of anger, aggressive acts, bullying and behaviors that create a hostile or disruptive environment.
I understand the above Code of Conduct requirements for participation in the NNOA STEM event. I understand that failure to comply with this Code of Conduct may result in dismissal.
