Policies & Disclaimers

(Updated 12.28.2021)

All Rogue Mentor affiliated mentors, volunteers, mentees, and applicants agree to and acknowledge these policies and disclaimers through continued participation with the program.


Rogue Mentor is an at-will program and reserves the right to remove any mentor/mentee/volunteer for any reason, without explanation.

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or delete portions of this at any time without further notice. If this occurs, we will post the changes on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the date these terms were last revised. Your continued attendance or mentorship after any such change constitutes your acceptance of the revisions.
 

All participants in the Rogue Mentorship’s program and events [online, or in-person], including mentors, volunteers, staff, mentees, and attendees, are required to comply with Rogue Mentor anti-harassment and anti-bullying policies. We hope this code will help provide structure for an honest and rewarding experience.

All participants agree not to engage in any tortious or criminal activity and if participants do engage in such activity, they understand that they are fully responsible to the fullest extent of the law and that they will retain their own legal counsel at their own expense, pay any and all necessary fines and other costs and agree to hold Rogue Mentor (or all necessary entities here and its affiliates, agents, directors and representatives) harmless. Rogue Mentor is further indemnified for any actions that outside the scope of this mentorship.

Participation is voluntary and participants shall fully indemnify, hold harmless and defend (collectively “indemnify” and “indemnification”) Rogue Mentor and its directors, volunteers, affiliated mentors, and mentees (collectively, “Indemnified Parties”) from and against all claims, demands, actions, suits, damages, liabilities, losses, settlements, judgements, costs and expenses (including but not limited to reasonable attorney’s fees and costs), whether or not involving a third party claim, which arise out of or related to (1) any breach of any representation or warranty, (2) any breach or violation or warranty of any covenant or other obligation or duty under applicable law, (3) (4) (5)] [other enumerated categories of claims and losses], in each case whether or not caused by the negligence of Rogue Mentor or any other Indemnified Party and whether or not the relevant Claim has merit.
