Policies

Refund Policies

Tickets and/or merchandise are non-refundable.

Code of Conduct

All attendees, including but not limited to, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our conference are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event. We are expecting cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

The Quick Version

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive comments related to gender, 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.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

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

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.

How to Make a Report

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.

How to get assistance:

  • Email Ann Greazel at safety@drupalcorn.org.
  • Find a committee member. We are identified by a ribbon on our badge.
  • Submit an anonymous form.

All reports will be handled confidentiality. If you agree, we will contact you and arrange to speak privately. You are welcome to bring a trusted person for support. We will clarify any policies, and discuss what options are available for addressing the complaint. The alleged transgressor will be notified of the complaint and asked for any other information. Staff will confer to decide on appropriate action. If the complaint is determined to violate the code of conduct, we’ll let you know how we plan to proceed. This procedure may be adjusted to accommodate unique circumstances.

Other safety support:

  • Help arranging safe transportation
  • Assistance contacting hotel/venue security or local law enforcement

We value your attendance and we aim to be diligent in meeting our goal of ensuring DrupalCorn is a safe and inclusive space.

Drupal Code of Conduct

We also expect everyone participating to abide by the Drupal Code of Conduct. It breaks down to the following:

  • Be considerate
  • Be respectful
  • Be collaborative
  • When we disagree, we consult others
  • When we are unsure, we ask for help
  • Step down considerately

Privacy Policy

We value your privacy and will take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information. We do not share, or distribute your personal information (including email address), but it may be accessible to those volunteers and staff who administer the site and infrastructure. We may be required to share stored personal information by law. We may share some or all of your personal information to third parties if it is required to provide the services you requested. For example, we may share your e-mail address with a trainer in order to provide access to their training materials or allow them to send you pre-training information.

All information that you disclose in your public profile, in posts, comments, or other public portions of the site becomes public information.
