If Signed by Parent or Guardian: I verify that the dangers of the activities and the significance of this Release and Waiver were explained to the Participant and that the Participant understood them.
Lion’s Heart is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience.

Lion’s Heart collects and uses your personal information to operate the Lion’s Heart website and deliver the services you have requested. Lion’s Heart also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of Lion’s Heart business, including, but not limited to volunteer opportunities.
Lion’s Heart does not sell, rent or lease its Member lists to third parties. Lion’s Heart does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations. Lion’s Heart’s website will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Lion’s Heart or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Lion’s Heart; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Lion’s Heart, or the public.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Lion’s Heart pages, or register with Lion’s Heart site or services, a cookie helps Lion’s Heart to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Lion’s Heart website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Lion’s Heart features that you customized.

If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Lion’s Heart services or website you visit.
Lion’s Heart secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Lion’s Heart secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.

HOURS: All hours must be logged onto the website before noon (PST) on April 30th of each year. (See “What is Community Service” on this website.)
MEETINGS: Each group is required to meet 8 times each year. It is mandatory for each Group to hold a May meeting in which all officers are elected. Members must not miss more than three meetings a year. After missing the fourth meeting, the Member will be deemed "resigned." For groups that are formed after June 1st, they must schedule 6 meetings and Members may not miss more than 2. For Members starting after meetings have taken place, the rule is that no Member may miss half of the remaining meetings.
OFFICERS: All officer positions are to be held by Members for a one-year term, starting in May and ending on April 30th of each year. Elections for new officers will be the first meeting in May.
DUES: The deadline to renew Membership by paying the returning dues is noon (PST) on April 15th. If the Membership Dues are not paid between February 1st and noon (PST) on April 15th, the Membership ends on April 30th. A Member may re-enroll starting on May 15th but will pay the new Member Dues, which are higher, but only if they were eligible to continue by logging in the required hours and attended enough meetings. Also, that Member may only be assigned to their former group if there is space available. (See "Refund Policy" for further details.)
FUNDRAISING: Lion's Heart is not a fundraising organization. However, Members are encouraged to volunteer for charities with their fundraising efforts. No Member shall collect money for a charity as part of a separate effort.
DISCIPLINE: Members are expected to act respectfully of others during Lion’s Heart meetings and volunteering. If the Class Coordinator feels a Member is not acting respectfully or appropriately, that Member will be required to have a parent attend the next six meetings and all volunteering activities until the sixth meeting. If a parent is not in attendance at a meeting or during volunteering, the Member will not receive credit for attending that meeting nor be able to log in the volunteer time. If the Member continues to act inappropriately after the sixth meeting, the Member will be resigned from Lion’s Heart immediately.
TRANSFERRING GROUPS/CHAPTERS: Returning Members may transfer to another group or another chapter between May 1st and October 1st. There is a transfer fee. It is up to the Member to keep track of availability in the group they wish to transfer to. Neither the Class Coordinator nor the Chapter President will keep track of requests. Upon login, a Member selects Membership > Transfer Request, and follows the directions if they are eligible to transfer. Transfers are not allowed for new, first-year Members.
MOVING: If a Member in good standing moves 30 or more miles away, the Member may transfer to a Chapter and group in their new area (if there is a Chapter and a group with space available). There is no transfer fee for these Members and they may do so at any time during the year. The Member MUST contact the Director of Operations (see information on Contact page) between August 2nd and April 30th. Otherwise, the Member can perform this function online through logging in and selecting Membership > Transfer Request, and following the directions.
