While participating in the Conference held by Render, “social distancing” must be practiced, and face coverings worn at all times to reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19. Because COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact, Render has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, Render cannot guarantee that its attendees, volunteers, partners, or others in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19.
In light of the ongoing spread of COVID-19, individuals who fall within any of the categories below should not engage in the Render Conference in-person. By attending the Render Conference, Attendee certifies that Attendee does not fall into any of the following categories:
1. Individuals who currently or within the past fourteen (14) days have experienced any symptoms associated with COVID-19, which include fever, cough, and shortness of breath among others;
2. Individuals who have traveled at any point in the past fourteen (14) days either internationally or to a community in the U.S. that has experienced or is experiencing sustained community spread of COVID-19; or
3. Individuals who believe that they may have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by state or local public health authorities or the health care team responsible for their treatment.
Attendees agree to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 (symptoms typically include fever, cough, and shortness of breath) and, contact Render at firstname.lastname@example.org if experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days after attending the Render Conference.
In the event that I file a lawsuit against Render, I agree to do so solely in the State of Georgia, and I further agree that the substantive law of Georgia shall apply in that action without regard to the conflict of law rules. Each party hereby irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any state or federal court located within the State of Georgia.
The undersigned further expressly agrees that the foregoing waiver, release, and indemnity agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the State of Georgia and that if any portion is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall notwithstanding continue in full legal force and effect.
Attendee acknowledges that they have not relied upon any representations of Render and understand these waivers and releases are necessary to allow Render to offer the Conference to me.
I, as Attendee, had sufficient opportunity to read this entire Waiver of Liability, Release of Claims, and COVID-19 Safety Acknowledgment ("Waiver of Liability"). I have read and understood the Waiver of Liability, and I agree to be bound by its terms. I understand I have given up substantial rights by signing the Waiver of Liability and have signed it freely and voluntarily without any inducement, assurance, or guarantee being made to me, and intend my electronic signature to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law.
