Private Event / "House" Rules

Confidentiality is important, respect others and their privacy inside and outside of our House, discretion is a must. You are required to be dressed appropriately and discretely when arriving, congregating outside, and leaving. Arriving dressed inappropriately can result in the denial of entry.

NO CELL PHONES, CAMERAS, VIDEO EQUIPMENT OR RECORDING DEVICES
OF ANY KIND ARE BEING USED OR ALLOWED TO BE USED WITHIN
THE CONFINES OF ANY COLUMBIA UNWOUND FACILITY.

• The use of CAMERAS or other RECORDING EQUIPMENT (to include cell phones with picture/video/audio recording capabilities) IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED and violators of this policy will be removed from the event without refund. Columbia Unwound reserves the right to confiscate any camera or recording device and delete or destroy any pictures/media taken. Any attempt to record, photograph or video anyone or any portion of a Columbia Unwound event for any reason, to include purposes of private use, publication or broadcast is strictly prohibited and WILL result in civil litigation against you and any organization that you may represent.

Only those who have signed a photography waiver and are clearly identifiable or those who are in pre-designated areas where photos are allowed will be photographed. Photographers will be clearly identifiable with lanyards and badges.

• Privacy is a top priority and Columbia Unwound emphasizes the importance of preserving the anonymity of our events, locations, hosts, and guests.

• Consent and Respect, all play and contact with others must be consensual, nobody at a Columbia Unwound event is expected to play or participate in a scene. Do not touch anyone in any way without express permission, NO means NO regardless of how it is said, there is no such thing as "implied consent" within Columbia Unwound, and by entering our House, you agree to treat all hosts, staff, DMs, assistants, volunteers and attendees with the utmost respect.
