As a team member (hereafter Participant)
of the Baga Gazaryn Chuluu Survey project, I will adhere to the regulations
and maintain a standard of good conduct. The Center for the Study
of Eurasian Nomads (hereafter Sponsor) and director of the excavations
(hereafter Director) reserves the right to require a Participant to
withdraw at any time if conduct or behavior jeopardizes the welfare
of any participant or the fulfillment of the objectives of the project.
Additional travel costs due to early dismissal will be the entire
responsibility of the Participant. It is understood that the Participant
will assume all responsibilities, financially or otherwise, for any
illness or injury which might occur during the expedition. Emergency
transport, medical or hospitalization costs resulting from illness
or accident during the expedition are the responsibility of the Participant
receiving such care. In cases where the Director, in consultation
with the Participant and local medical authorities, considers it necessary,
a Participant will be sent home or hospitalized. The Director will
make every effort to ensure that an ill or injured volunteer receives
proper medical attention. The Participant is aware that while taking
part in this project, certain exposure to risks may occur. Exposure
may include but not be limited to: accident and/or sickness without
readily available medical facilities, the forces of nature, travel
on the ground and in the air, and others. In consideration of the
right for the Participant to engage in this project, he or she assumes
all of the risks involved and agrees to indemnify and hold the Sponsor
and the Director of the project and his Associations harmless for
any and all liability that may arise in connection with travel to
and from the archeological site, to any of the excursions, and while
engaged in any activities. I have read and fully understand and accept
the conditions for participating in this archaeological expedition.
