RoanokeDiversityCenter.com values the privacy of it’s visitors. We do not use any
part of the information submitted to this site for any purpose other than that stated
or implied. As a matter of policy, the RDC will inform participants beforehand
at their events, if photographs will be taken by RDC Board members, or by those
hired by the RDC for event coverage. Further, person’s viewing the RDC website,
facebook, or other RDC generated media or advertisement should not assume that individuals
identifiable in such items are of a certain sexual orientation or gender identification.
While the RDC values the positive images of our community, in the promotion of
our community ,the RDC, effort, and in the general struggle for LGBTQ....equality,
we also understand that not all individuals within our community are “Out” and as
such may expect a certain level of privacy . To the best of our ability, the RDC
will respect and provide reasonable safeguards for those individuals. This, however,
cannot be guaranteed, since we are not in control of participant’s camera phones
etc which may be present at our events.
Emailing Lists The Roanoke Diversity Center will send mailings out periodically, informing
our community of events etc occurring at the center, or at other venues through collaboration
with other community groups/organizations/businesses etc. The RDC mail and emailing
list will not be sold to for-profit organizations or businesses, nor given to other
individuals or groups for their specific purposes.
