TL;DR: BE EXCELLENT WITH EACH OTHER

All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers („Attendees”) participating at our events or using any of our services accept by such participation and/ or usage of services the following code of conduct. We are expecting cooperation from all Attendees to help ensuring a safe environment for everybody.

NEED HELP?

Feel free to ask for help from any members of staff during the event. You can also contact the organisers at hello@stretchcon.com and we will try to help as soon as possible.

THE QUICK VERSION

Our event is dedicated to providing a harassment-free event experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion (or lack thereof), color, national origin or genetic information. We do not tolerate:

  • harassment of Attendees,
  • unethical behaviour,
  • the violation of basic social norms in any other form (e.g. intimidating, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory, threatening, violent, extremist or demeaning statements or actions).

Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any event, including conferences, talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Attendees violating these rules may be removed from the event or their participation and/ or use of services may be otherwise restricted without a refund at the discretion of the organiser.

THE LESS QUICK VERSION

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, color, national origin, genetic information, 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.

Attendees asked to stop any harassing, unethical or otherwise inappropriate behaviour are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.

If an Attendee violates this Code of Conduct, the event organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender, apply any restrictions regarding the participation/ use of services by the offender, or removal from the 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 conference staff immediately.

We expect Attendees to follow these rules at all of our online/offline events.
