Volunteer is an independent contractor of Company and not an employee, agent, or representative of Company. In connection with the foregoing, Volunteer  is not entitled to any employee benefits or withholdings (including, but not limited to, the Federal Insurance Contribution Act, the Social Security Act, the Federal Unemployment Act, income tax withholding (federal, state, and local) and any and all state or other government taxes), and each Party shall remain solely responsible for all of its own employees, subcontractors, labor costs, and, except as otherwise provided herein, expenses (including, without limitation, timely payment of all income taxes, payroll taxes, and related withholdings) arising in connection with this Agreement.

Expenses.  Volunteer will only be reimbursed for actual, verifiable, out of pocket costs and expenses that are preapproved in writing by Company and incurred directly in connection with Volunteer’s performance of the Services and, in all cases, solely in accordance with Company’s expense reimbursement policies in effect from time to time. 

 

Confidentiality.  

 

Volunteer agrees to hold in strict confidence and not to disclose to others or use for any purpose (other than the performance of this Agreement and Services), either before or after termination of this Agreement, any confidential or proprietary information of Company or Company clients, customers, subscribers, or club members (collectively, “Customers”), including, without limitation, any confidential or proprietary information that is transferred pursuant to this Agreement. Confidential and proprietary information includes, without limitation, the terms of this Agreement, any information, plans, schedules, content, strategies or guests related to the Services, any technical or business information, product formulas or specifications, manufacturing techniques, process, experimental work, program, software, marketing or distribution plans, strategies or arrangements, or trade secrets relating to the products, systems, equipment, services, sales, research or business of Company.  Confidential information is not limited to a specific medium and can be oral, written, electronic, or physical in format (“Confidential Information”). Such Confidential Information includes all documents or computer files, including emails, prepared by Volunteer that contain or reflect the Confidential Information.

 

     Other than as permitted hereunder and required to perform the Services, Volunteer shall not disclose Confidential Information to any third party in any form without Company’s prior written consent. Volunteer shall not disclose Confidential Information to any of its personnel or agents without the need to know such information and, in all cases, without written confidentiality agreements with such persons that impose obligations no less restrictive than those set forth herein. Except as otherwise provided below, information shall not be considered confidential hereunder nor subject to the provisions of this Section if it can be demonstrated: (i) to have been rightfully in Volunteer’s possession prior to the date of the disclosure of such information to Volunteer, if such prior possession was not otherwise subject to a restriction on disclosure; (ii) to have been in the public domain prior to the date of the disclosure of such information to Volunteer; (iii) to have become part of the public domain by publication or by any other means except an unauthorized act or omission on the part of Volunteer; or (iv) to have been supplied to Volunteer without restriction by a third party who is under no obligation to maintain such information in confidence. Confidential Information shall not be deemed to be generally available to the public or in Volunteer’s possession merely because it may be embraced by a more general disclosure, or merely because it may be derived from combinations of disclosures generally available to the public or in Volunteer’s possession. 

 

Upon Company’s request, Volunteer shall return to Company (or, to the extent not capable of being returned, destroy and/or permanently delete) any and all written or physical embodiments (including copies) of Confidential Information disclosed to Volunteer by Company which is then in Volunteer’s possession, custody or control. The confidentiality obligations set forth in this Agreement shall survive for a period of ten (10) years after termination or expiration of the Agreement.

 

Ownership of Work Product.  

 

Volunteer acknowledges that Volunteer has no right, title, or interest in or to the results and proceeds produced in connection with the Services hereunder, including, without limitation, all content, materials and deliverables created and/or provided by Volunteer in connection therewith (the “Results and Proceeds”), and agrees that Company shall instead own all right, title, and interest therein and thereto. 

 

To further evidence the full ownership of the Results and Proceeds by Company, in consideration for the opportunity and privilege to provide the Services as described hereunder, and other valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, Volunteer hereby assigns to Company all right, title, and interest to the  Results and Proceeds. Volunteer agrees to assist Company with the enforcement of any proprietary rights over the Results and Proceeds, including the prompt execution of any additional documents that may be reasonably requested by Company.   In the event Volunteer fails to respond to Company’s request for execution of such documents in a reasonable amount of time pursuant to this provision, Volunteer hereby designates Company as its attorney-in-fact that may execute such documents on Volunteer’s behalf.  

 

For the avoidance of doubt, the Results and Proceeds shall be deemed specially ordered and commissioned by Company as a “work made for hire”  as such term is defined under the United States Copyright Act of 1976, as amended.  To the extent that  the Results and Proceeds may not be deemed to be a “work made for hire”, Volunteer hereby irrevocably assigns all ownership rights in and to such work to Company. If any such work of authorship cannot be assigned, Volunteer hereby grants to Company an exclusive, assignable, irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, sub-licensable (through one or multiple tiers), royalty-free, unlimited license to use, copy, reproduce, distribute, modify, adapt, alter, translate, improve, create derivative works of, practice, publicly perform, publicly display and digitally perform and display such Results and Proceeds in any media now known or hereafter discovered. Volunteer agrees not to (a) practice, display, copy, reproduce, distribute, transfer, modify, adapt, alter, translate, improve, or create derivative works from, or otherwise use, any Results and Proceeds or (b) incorporate any Results and Proceeds into any product or invention unrelated to Company’s business. To the extent moral rights may not be assignable under applicable law and to the extent the following is allowed by the laws in the various countries where moral rights exist, Volunteer hereby irrevocably waives such moral rights in and to the Results and Proceeds and consents to any action of Company that would violate such moral rights in the absence of such consent.   For the avoidance of doubt, Company shall have no obligation to utilize the Services or to exploit any of the Results and Proceeds, or to otherwise exercise any of the rights granted to Company hereunder.  Neither the expiration nor earlier termination of this Agreement for any reason shall affect the rights granted to Company hereunder.  

 

Company Property. All materials, including without limitation, Confidential Information, documents, drawings, drafts, notes, designs, computer media, electronic files and lists, proprietary information, customer lists, trade secrets, intellectual property, computers, equipment, tools, plans, recordings, software, and/or related records or accounting ledgers, including all additions to, deletions from, alterations of, and revisions in the foregoing (collectively, the “Materials”), which are furnished to Volunteer by Company or which are developed in the process of performing the Services, or embody or relate to the Services or the Results and Proceeds, are the sole and exclusive property of Company, and shall be returned by Volunteer to Company promptly at Company's request together with any copies thereof, and in any event promptly upon expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason. Volunteer is granted no rights in or to such Materials, except as necessary to fulfil its obligations under this Agreement and subject to the terms, conditions, and limitations hereof. Volunteer shall not use or disclose the Materials to any third party except as directed by Company or as otherwise permitted hereunder. Volunteer will not share any information, footage, images, voice recordings or any other content obtained pursuant to this Agreement with any third party, including on social media and in Volunteer’s promotional materials, without Company’s express written consent.  Any physical or technical equipment that is provided by Volunteer shall be noted in Exhibit B and shall be updated as needed.  Upon termination of this Agreement, that list shall be utilized to determine, in part, whether Volunteer has satisfied its obligations under this Agreement.

 

Return of Materials. On termination of this Agreement, or as requested by Company from time to time, Volunteer shall immediately deliver to Company all Materials in its possession, or under its care and control.   Volunteer shall have five (5) business days to return any requested Materials and shall do so at Volunteer’s own expense.   Volunteer must use a commercially acceptable means of transport and must pack the Materials with reasonable care so as to avoid any damage from transport.  Volunteer shall be responsible for any damage that occurs to any Materials as a result of Volunteer’s negligence while in Volunteer’s care or upon return.  In the event of any damage to any Company property, Volunteer shall be responsible for paying Company the replacement value of the Materials.

 

Likeness Release.  

 

In connection with Volunteer’s provision of the Services hereunder, Volunteer hereby irrevocably grants Company the right and permission to tape, record, photograph, and/or film (as applicable) Volunteer’s person, voice, and conversations/statements, including, without limitation, any expressions and/or communications by Volunteer of any views, opinions, information, facts, and/or other subject matter.  Volunteer acknowledges and agrees that (i) Company is and shall remain the sole and exclusive owner of the results and proceeds of such taping, recording, photography, and/or filming (including the physical embodiments thereof), and (ii) Company will have the exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, royalty free, transferrable, assignable, sublicensable, universal right (including, without limitation, copyright), to use, copy, reproduce, distribute, publish, modify, exhibit, create derivative works of, and otherwise exploit, all or any portion of the foregoing, in and in connection with Company’s business, and the advertising, marketing, publicity, and promotion thereof, in any and all media now known or hereafter developed.  .

Volunteer acknowledges that, in the event of any breach of this Agreement by Company or any third party, the damage, if any, caused will not be irreparable or otherwise sufficient to entitle Volunteer to seek injunctive or other equitable relief.  Volunteer’s rights and remedies will be strictly limited to the right, if any, to recover damages in an action at law, and Volunteer will have neither the right to rescind or terminate this Agreement or any of Company’s rights hereunder, nor the right to enjoin the production, exhibition, or other exploitation of the Results and Proceeds, Materials or other rights granted to Company hereunder.

 

General Release.  

 

During the term of this Agreement, Volunteer will be engaging in activities that may involve risk of serious injury including permanent disability and death and severe social and economic losses which might result not only from their own actions, inactions, or negligence but the actions, inactions, or negligence of others, or the conditions of any venue or location for, or any equipment used in connection with the Services, and that there may be other risks not known or not reasonably foreseeable at this time.  The Volunteer accepts personal responsibility for the damages, costs and other liabilities (including, without limitation, costs of medical care and the value of lost or damaged personal property) following or otherwise connected to Volunteer’s injury, permanent disability, or death resulting from Volunteer’s provision of the Service or any activities in connection therewith.

To the extent applicable and to the fullest extent permitted by law, Volunteer expressly waives all of their rights under California Civil Code Section 1542, which provides: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.”

 Exhibit C – Code of Conduct

 

In connection with the provision of Services for Company, Volunteer acknowledges and agrees that it has read and understands the below Code of Conduct Policy and agrees to be bound by the terms hereof:

 

Victor + Valor™ Volunteer Mission Statement

As a Victor + Valor™ volunteer, you partner alongside the Victor + Valor mission to help active duty and retired military, and their immediate families create profitable brands and businesses.



 

Internal and External Practices

  • Be patient and courteous.

 

  • Be inclusive. We welcome and support people of all backgrounds and identities. This includes but is not limited to members of any sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, social and economic class, educational level, color, immigration status, sex, age, size, family status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.

 

  • Be considerate. We all depend on each other to produce the best work we can as a company. Your decisions will affect Customers and colleagues, and you should take those consequences into account when making decisions.

 

  • Be professional. Show up on time to all meetings/classes and fully prepared with regards to a quiet work environment, a strong internet signal, as well as prepared for the content to be covered. Dress in a business casual/professional manner while attending meetings/classes.

 

  • Be respectful. We won't all agree all the time, but disagreement is no excuse for disrespectful behavior. We will all experience frustration from time to time, but we cannot allow that frustration to become personal attacks. An environment where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive or creative one.

 

  • Our differences can be our strengths. We can find strength in diversity. Different people have different perspectives on issues, and that can be valuable for solving problems or generating new ideas. Being unable to understand why someone holds a viewpoint doesn’t mean that they’re wrong. Don’t forget that we all make mistakes, and blaming each other doesn’t get us anywhere. Instead, focus on resolving issues and learning from mistakes.


 

  • No affiliate links. This group is not your ATM. Do not share affiliate links in this group or to the members. PERIOD.

 

  • Be all in. Please do not create subgroups via Slack or other platforms. Rather focus your time and energy on the wisdom and skills that is here. 

 

  • Remember, this community is about learning, growing, and building brands to create profitable careers - NOT GAINING NEW CUSTOMERS. 

 

  • WE ARE HERE TO SUPPORT, CHEERLEAD, GUIDE, LEAD, AND CELEBRATE THE SUCCESSES OF GROWING BRAND. This is not a place for technical support, therapy, or your personal support group. We share love and support, but this is not the environment for deep personal psychological support. Please reach out to our Chaplain services for such support. 



 

Unacceptable Behavior 

  • Choose your words carefully. Always conduct yourself professionally. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down others. Harassment and exclusionary behavior aren't acceptable. This includes but is not limited to: threats of violence, discriminatory jokes and language, sharing sexually explicit or violent material via electronic devices or other means, personal insults, especially those using racist or sexist terms, unwelcome sexual attention, and advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior is not allowed. 

 

  • Do not harass others. In general, if someone asks you to stop something, then stop. When we disagree, try to understand why. Differences of opinion and disagreements are mostly unavoidable. What is important is that we resolve disagreements and differing views constructively.

 

  • We have a Zero tolerance policy for the following behaviors: harassment, abuse or assault, bullying, intoxication, illegal activity, discrimination, or plagiarism.



 

By adopting this Code of Conduct, participants commit themselves to fairly and consistently applying these principles to every aspect of participating in this group.

 

This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community.

 

Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting our team at https://victorvalor.org/concern 


 

All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed by Company as necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. Participants are obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident.
