Code of Conduct for Omar's World:
Updated 2/2/18

We (Sally Hoops, and the other managers and ownership of Omar’s World of Comics & Hobbies) are dedicated to providing a harassment-free shopping and event experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, or religion, or any other factor. We do not tolerate harassment of event attendees or customers in any form. Event attendees violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event without a refund at the discretion of the event organizers.

Harassment includes, but is not limited to, offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, or religion. It also includes display of sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of games or other events, inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention, bathroom policing, and unwelcome simulated combat using realistic or non-realistic weapon props. Customers and event participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a customer or event participant engages in harassing behavior, staff or event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the store or event with no refund. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the store or event staff immediately. Event staff will be identified at the beginning of each event, and may be wearing a staff name badge depending on the specifics of the event.

Event staff will be happy to help participants contact local law enforcement if desired, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. Event staff will never pressure anyone into making an official report.  We value your safety, privacy, and comfort while at our store and events.
