The Participant’s likeness may be used by BioBuilder and the aforementioned parties for any lawful purpose, including for public relations, fundraising, promotional, recruitment or educational materials related to the Educational Session. The media form in which the Participant’s likeness may be used may include printed or electronic publications or communications, websites, or other means of distribution or transmission, now known or hereafter developed. The undersigned hereby waives any right to inspect or approve of any such media prior to use or dissemination and authorize the use of the Participant’s likeness in perpetuity and without any compensation to the undersigned and/or the Participant. The undersigned hereby assigns all right, title and interest in and to all such media capturing the Participant’s likeness to BioBuilder and agrees that all such media shall be owned by BioBuilder.

The undersigned is aware that by agreeing to this Agreement, Waiver and Release the undersigned and Participant are giving up valuable legal rights, including the right to recover damages from BioBuilder in case of illness, injury, death or property loss or damage, including, for the avoidance of doubt and without limitation exposure to COVID-19 at any BioBuilder program and any illness, injury or death resulting therefrom.
