Terms of Membership

I understand that Our Time Bank (OTB) shall have neither liability nor responsibility to any person or entity with respect to loss, damage, or injury caused or alleged to be caused directly or indirectly by information contained on this web site or any other Our Time Bank resources.

I certify that I am age 21 or over in order to accept these Terms of Membership and be liable for any harm or incidental or consequential damages or harm that might occur against another member, even by accident, including any form of cyberbullying.

I pledge not to reveal the contents of this site, nor any other documentation provided by my local Time Bank to non-members, especially any personal member information.

I understand that I will receive messages from other members of OTB through this web site. Notification of such messages will be sent to the email address I have registered with. I also understand that I will receive newsletters, announcements, broadcasts, and alerts for OTB from my Coordinator through this web site, or through OTB's account at iContact.com.

I understand that the function of OTB is to facilitate the exchange of services and sharing of resources within the community. It is my responsibility to use the same caution I would in other circumstances to get to know a person, make reference checks, and use my instincts before engaging with another Time Bank participant - especially for babysitting, elder care, and driving. Since any agreements shall be made by and between parties involved in such transactions, OTB will not be held responsible and will not assume any liability for claims, damages, or any other consequences which may arise from this arrangement.

I hereby agree the duty, responsibility, and liability that is inherent with Time Bank exchanges shall remain as it would be if the parties were not part of any Time Bank. I agree to leave intact the normal remedies and cause-of-action available to these parties in the event of any unforeseen circumstance. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless all parties who facilitate or participate in Time Bank exchanges.

I understand that my local Time Bank may not be incorporated or have legal status as an organization. I agree to abide by the core values, rules, and guidelines provided by TimeBank USA and OTB for proper and courteous behavior. I pledge to proceed with good intent towards being of service to others in my community and treat others in the Time Bank with respect and kindness.

Completion of this registration form will not conclude the process for joining OTB. An application must be submitted, you must attend an orientation, your references will be checked, and pay any suggested annual dues donation before your membership can be finalized.
