Below are some commitments we ask of you that help us avoid some common pitfalls of non-profits.
1. As a Katerva process participant, I understand that I am not an employee or independent contractor of Katerva. I will not be compensated for any time or expenses incurred volunteering, nor am I entitled to any employment related or other benefits because of my service provided. I am not authorized to agree on behalf of, obligate, or commit Katerva in any respect.
2. I authorize Katerva to use my name, photograph, likeness, voice, and biographical information on its website or other digital or printed material for purposes consistent with Katerva’s mission. I may retract this permission at any time on thirty days written notice delivered to Katerva.
3. In certain circumstances, you may be issued an "@katerva.net” email to identify you as one of our volunteers. Please note that issuance of this email solely identifies you as a Katerva volunteer, and does not indicate an employment relationship in any way, or any authority to enter into any agreements on behalf of Katerva.
4. I agree that all copyrightable material, notes, records, drawings, designs, inventions, improvements, developments, discoveries and trade secrets (collectively, “Developments”) contributed to or created in the course of my Katerva volunteer work are the sole property of Katerva. In addition, any Developments which constitute copyrightable subject matter shall be considered “works made for hire” as that term is defined in the United States Copyright Act. I agree to assign (or cause to be assigned) and do hereby assign fully to Katerva all Developments and any copyrights, patents, or other intellectual property rights relating thereto.I HAVE CAREFULLY READ THIS AGREEMENT AND FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS CONTENTS. I AM AWARE THAT THIS IS A RELEASE OF LIABILITY, AND AGREE IT OF MY OWN FREE WILL. THIS AGREEMENT IS EXCLUSIVELY SUBJECT TO THE LAW OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND SPECIFICALLY THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA. VENUE FOR RESOLVING ANY DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA U.S.A.
