Volunteer Insurance Waiver and Confidentiality Agreement
I fully understand that my services provided are strictly in a volunteer capacity, and I agree to provide my services to the Humane Society of Sheboygan County (henceforth referred to as The Humane Society) strictly as a volunteer. I understand that I will receive no compensation, salary or employee benefits or payment of any kind for the services rendered.
Humane Society of Sheboygan County handles large numbers of animals on a daily basis. I understand the temperament of these animals is often unknown by The Humane Society staff. I fully understand and agree to assume all risks involved in any and all duties that I perform for The Humane Society in my volunteer capacity. I will not hold The Humane Society liable for any personal or property damage I may incur while performing volunteer services. I will not hold The Humane Society liable for any injury(s) I may sustain from handling animals during the course of my volunteering.
I understand that the discussion of The Humane Society clients, employees, volunteers, and/or animal’s former owners is a violation of privacy and a breach of confidentiality. I agree to abide by privacy/confidentiality policy during my tenure at The Humane Society and after I am no longer affiliated with the agency. I understand that any violation may result in my immediate dismissal and/or legal action. The stated agreement is a reminder to the undersigned that inappropriate disclosure of confidential information by the undersigned could expose the undersigned to liability or claims if the disclosure of such information causes either monetary damage or other irreparable harm to The Humane Society or its clients. I acknowledge that I have thoroughly read and understand the terms and conditions of the above release. I waive legal rights to bring a lawsuit against The Humane Society.
I agree to conform to The Humane Society policies and procedures while volunteering, and I will familiarize myself with these policies and procedures in the Volunteer Handbook.
This agreement is required for the protection of the Humane Society of Sheboygan County, its staff, board of directors, customers and volunteers.
