NorthStar Neighbor Participant Waiver

Notice:  This release and waiver of liability affects rights you have relating to your participation with Northstar Neighbor.

I desire to become a participant in the Northstar Neighbor program. I understand that Northstar Neighbor will connect me with a volunteer who will offer to provide volunteer assistance to me of various kinds. After receiving a connection from Northstar Neighbor, I may communicate with one or more volunteers.  The volunteer may travel to and from my home at my request and may provide me with goods and services under terms agreed to by both myself and the volunteer (the “Activities”).  Northstar Neighbor is offering me the chance to connect with a volunteer who may provide me with assistance, and I understand and agree that, apart from connecting me to the volunteer, Northstar Neighbor has no responsibility for the Activities and makes no promises, guarantees, or representations regarding the nature of the Activities or my participation in the Activities. 

I understand and agree that I am not required to communicate or accept volunteer services, and I assume all risks associated with my participation in the Activities. I agree that Northstar Neighbor is not responsible for my safety or security or the security of any of my personal effects.  I also specifically assume the risk of injury or harm in the Activities and release Northstar Neighbor from all liability for injury, illness, death or property damage resulting from participation in the Activities or caused by any volunteer with whom I connect through Northstar Neighbor.  This assumption of risk includes but is not limited to the risk of contracting any communicable disease, illness, or sickness during the course of the Activities including but not limited to the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19. Separately, and in consideration for the opportunity to connect with a volunteer through Northstar Neighbor, I hereby release Northstar Neighbor, its board members, officers, and representatives, from any and all liability, equitable claims, or legal claims I might have relating to participation in the Activities.  I expressly agree that this Release is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of the state of Minnesota and this Release shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the state of Minnesota. I agree that in the event that any clause or provisions of this Release is deemed invalid, the enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Release shall not be affected.
