I understand that Company has not made any representation that my Likeness or Content will or will not be used in any way.
I understand that Content of me may be used in public-service or public-awareness advertisements. Knowing that such uses may intentionally or unintentionally give rise to the impression that I suffer from a condition, disease or disorder, I nevertheless consent to this use.
I hereby release, discharge, and agree to hold harmless Company, its successors, assigns, and legal representatives, and all persons acting under its permission or authority, from any liability, costs, fees or expenses arising out of its use of my Likeness or any Content, or by virtue of defect, inconsistency, imperfection, fault or any other shortcoming, whether intentional or unintentional, that may occur or be produced in creating or using my Likeness or any Content, including without limitation any claims for libel or violation of any right of publicity or privacy, defamation, false-light reputation or likeness. I agree not to make any claim against Company as a result of the recording or use of my Likeness and/or Content.
