When obtaining personal information, RMHC will clearly specify the purpose of personal information use, and will use the personal information only within the limits of the purpose of use that was clearly specified to the individual when obtaining his/her personal information. If the need arises to change the purpose of use, the affected individuals will be notified or an announcement will be posted on the website before the information is used.

Article 6: Rights of the individual
Provision of personal information to RMHC is voluntary. An individual can choose to not provide such information, but such refusal may create problems in an individual’s stay at the House or the activities performed by the volunteers.
