Research through Genetics
Release of Liability
RELEASE OF LIABILITY/LIABILITY WAIVER
I understand that the HAM Country web pages, blog, videos and the HAM DNA Project are projects established by Dave Hamm to include family history and genetic testing, by commercial means. The general purpose of DNA of participants is to compare the results with those of like surnames and with those of HAM or variant surnames. I also understand the possibility that a participant's y-chromosomal DNA or autosomal DNA may not match that of others with the same surname where adoption, false paternity, or other reasons happened in the participant's immediate family or backward in time in the ancestral line.
In consideration of this right to participate in the HAM DNA Project and with full knowledge of these possibilities as outlined above, and intending to be legally bound, I hereby agree for myself and on behalf of all of my family and heirs to RELEASE Dave Hamm from any and all liability, claims, demands or any causes of action, and NOT TO SUE OR OTHERWISE MAKE ANY CLAIM against Dave Hamm whatsoever which may arise during my participation in the HAM Country web pages and HAM DNA Project. I assume full responsibility for any risk occurring from my participation. I understand that Dave Hamm will make reasonable efforts to protect the identity of the participant where the test results show a participant's DNA may or may not match that of others with the same surname. I give Dave Hamm the right to see and copy my results and understand that Dave Hamm will make available a copy of my test results regarding analysis.
I also agree to INDEMNIFY AND HOLD Dave Hamm HARMLESS from all claims, judgments, expenses and costs, including but not limited to attorney's fees, incurred in connection with any claims brought as a result of my participation in the HAM DNA Project and which are released by the terms of this agreement.
This RELEASE AND WAIVER is given in the interests of permitting the HAM DNA Project to go forward in the genealogical analysis of this participant and of permitting Dave Hamm to serve the quest of the HAM and variant surname families for genealogical relationship data through genetic testing as outlined above. This RELEASE AND WAIVER is further given to enable Dave Hamm and all participating families to figure out if the different families are related and at what point in time that did or did not occur. Further, this RELEASE AND WAIVER is given to enable Dave Hamm to feel free to donate his services and time in organizing this project without fear of liability. My release is given in exchange for being a participant in this project. This RELEASE AND WAIVER has no expiration date.
