HARASSMENT AND DISCRIMINATION POLICY

The following policies shall apply to all SanSFiS-sponsored events:

Discrimination (based on, but not limited to, gender, race, ethnicity,
religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, or physical/mental
disability) is not tolerated. Harassment of any kind -- including, but
not limited to, unwanted attention, inappropriate physical contact,
and verbal abuse -- is not tolerated.  If someone tells you "no" or
asks you to leave them alone, your business with them is done.

If you feel that you are being discriminated against or harassed, or
if you notice someone behaving inappropriately (such as violating
hotel or convention policies), we respectfully suggest the following:

If you feel comfortable doing so, point out the inappropriate behavior
to the person(s) involved. Often this will solve the problem immediately.

If you do not feel comfortable talking with the person(s) involved,
or if talking to them does not resolve the issue, please report the
situation immediately to any convention staff member, or to hotel
security who will help you make contact with convention staff.  
In the case of harassment at an open party, you may also report 
the issue to the party host.

When making any report it would be extremely helpful if you could provide
a name, badge name/number and/or physical description of the person(s)
involved.  Please remember that we need to know about any incidents
during the event in order to take action.

SanSFiS reserves reserve the right revoke the membership of
anyone failing to conform to the letter and spirit of these policies,
those of our hotel, and the laws of the City of San Diego and the
State of California.
