Bay Area Older Adults Terms of Service

In order to register for BAO events and activities, please read and accept the Terms of Service.

Waiver of Liability. In consideration of participation in an event, class, trip or lecture ("Activity") offered by Bay Area Older Adults and its partners (“Bay Area Older Adults”), I agree to indemnify and hold Bay Area Older Adults harmless and hereby waive, release and discharge any and all claims for damage, injury, bodily injury or property damage which I may have or which hereinafter may accrue to me against Bay Area Older Adults, its agents and volunteers, from and against any liability arising out of or connected in any way with my participation in an Activity, even though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of the person or entities mentioned above.

I understand that accidents and injuries can arise from participation in an Activity; knowing the risks, nevertheless, I hereby agree to assume those risks on behalf of me and to release and to hold harmless all of the persons or entities mentioned above whom (through negligence or carelessness) might otherwise be liable to me (or my heirs or assignees) for damages. It is further understood and agreed that this waiver, release and assumption of risks has been freely entered into and is to be binding on my heirs and assigns.

Trail Conditions for Outdoor Physical Activity Programs. Some common conditions you may encounter on the trail include, but are not limited to, the presence of poison oak, ticks, rattlesnakes, wildlife, and trail users. Some trails are wide and smooth, while others may be steep, narrow, muddy, overgrown, rutted, in remote locations, and/or have natural or man-made hazards, such as fallen trees and drainage structures.

Consent to Use of Image.Consent to Use of Images: For good and valuable consideration of attending BAO events, I hereby authorize BAO and its agents to photograph, videotape, audio record, duplicate and/or otherwise record my image, voice, and likeness ("Images") and use such Images in digital and print publications. I understand that any Images with my likeness are the property of BAO. I irrevocably authorize BAO to edit, alter, copy, exhibit, publish or distribute Images for purposes of publicizing BAO’s programs or for any related, lawful purpose. Additionally, I waive the right to inspect or approve the finished Images wherein my likeness appears and waive the right to any royalties or other compensation arising from or related to the use of the Images. I hereby release and forever discharge BAO from all claims, demands, and causes of action which you, your heirs, representatives, executors, administrators or any other persons acting on your behalf or on behalf of your estate have or may have by reason of this authorization.

Photography Restrictions: I understand that I am welcome to capture the flora, fauna, landscapes etc. in photographs or video recordings but taking photographs or video of the participants at BAO events is prohibited. Some event participants specifically request that they not be included in photos or videos at our events and/or that such photographs and videos not be posted to social media. BAO honors any such requests and I agree to respect the privacy of participants at Bay Area Older Adults’ events.

Refund and Exchange Policy. Bay Area Older Adults has a no exchange policy for cancellations for any reason. For our day trips, if you cancel the trip, you may only receive a refund (less a $15 administrative fee and any credit card processing fees) if we can fill your spot with someone else. In order words, there will be no refund if your space is not filled by another participant and no-shows will not receive a refund. Full refunds are made if the trip is canceled by Bay Area Older Adults.

Severability. If any term or provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or otherwise unenforceable, the same shall not affect the other terms or provisions hereof or the whole of this Agreement, but such term or provision shall be deemed modified to the extent necessary in the court’s opinion to render such term or provision enforceable, and the rights and obligations of the Parties shall be construed and enforced accordingly, preserving to the fullest permissible extent the intent and agreements of the Parties.
