Code of Conduct

TL;DR 

Be respectful. Harassment and abuse are never tolerated. If you are in a situation that makes you uncomfortable at a Tech Nottingham event, if the event itself is creating an unsafe or inappropriate environment or you are made to feel uncomfortable by anyone at any of our events or in our online communities, please let a member of the event team know or contact emma@technottingham.com

The full version

Inclusivity is a core value of Tech Nottingham. We believe that every single person has the right to take part in Tech Nottingham events (including Hack24) and online communities in a safe and welcoming environment.

Harassment includes but is not limited to offensive verbal or written comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

If what you’re doing is making someone feel uncomfortable, that counts as harassment and is enough reason to stop doing it.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. Sponsors, venue staff, speakers, volunteers, organisers, and anyone else at any of our events or in our online communities are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, attendees should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material both in their hacks and during the event.

If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, Tech Nottingham may take any action Tech Nottingham deems appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the events and our online communities with no eligibility for reimbursement or refund of any type.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please let a member of the event team know or contact emma@technottingham.com.

Tech Nottingham representatives will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe while involved in Tech Nottingham events and our online communities.

The facilities provided at Tech Nottingham events, including networks, internet access, wifi, power supply, furniture, toilets and the physical environment in general, must be used with respect, in full accordance of the law, the terms of this document and any additional terms laid out at the event. When breaches of these terms take place Tech Nottingham may take any action Tech Nottingham deems appropriate, including warning the offender, expulsion from the events and our online communities with no eligibility for reimbursement or refund of any type, or even involving law enforcement.

We value your involvement in Tech Nottingham and want to ensure that all our attendees can enjoy participating in the tech community in a safe, fun and welcoming environment.
