We want everyone to have a great experience at our hackathon. To ensure a safe environment, all attendees (which includes participants both in person and remote, sponsors, partners, volunteers and staff) at our hackathon are required to abide by this Code of Conduct.
We do not tolerate harassment of hackathon attendees, in any form. Harassment includes, but is not limited to, offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, nationality, or religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, photography or audio/ video recording against reasonable consent, disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome attention.
Attendees must be given a reasonable opportunity to opt out from being photographed, filmed or audio recorded. If an attendee objects, you must respect and comply with their request.
Attendees requested to cease any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. If you are being harassed, observe or learn of someone else being harassed, or have any other concerns, please notify a member of the organisational team immediately.
If an attendee engages in harassing behaviour or conduct deemed in anyway inappropriate, the hackathon organisers may take any action they deem appropriate. This includes warning the offender, expulsion from the hackathon and/ or reporting their behaviour to law enforcement agencies.
We are happy to help attendees contact any local security or the police, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe whilst attending the hackathon.
