Code of Conduct for Snyk Events
Snyk sponsored events are events intended for networking and collaboration in the tech community (each, an “Event”).
We value the participation of each member and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout all Events hosted by Snyk Limited and its affiliates (“Snyk” or “we”).
To make clear what is expected, all attendees, speakers, sponsors, organizers, partners and volunteers (collectively, “Guests”) attending an Event are required to conform to the following Code of Conduct. Organizers shall enforce this code throughout the Event.
Video and Photography
By entering and being at the Event, all Guests consent to be filmed and photographed. From time to time, Snyk uses recorded video and photographs of events and attendees in its promotional materials. Unless permission to record and use such images is revoked in writing to Snyk, by virtue of Guest’s attendance, agrees to the use of the Guest’s likeness in such materials. All videography and photography will be done in reliance on the consent given by entering the event.
Code of Conduct
Snyk is dedicated to providing a positive and harassment-free event experience for everyone, regardless of age, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, ethnicity, race, religion, nationality, or level of experience. We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form, nor do we tolerate any behavior that would reasonably lead to another event participant being made to feel unsafe, insecure, or frightened for their physical or emotional well-being. All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds.
Examples of encouraged behavior that contributes to a positive environment include:
Using welcoming and inclusive language
Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
Focusing on what is best for everyone at the event
Showing empathy towards other participants
Unacceptable behavior includes:
The use of sexualized language or imagery, or inappropriate physical contact, sexual attention, or advances
Trolling, insulting or derogatory comments, personal or political attacks, or sustained disruption of talks or other events
Deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, or harassing photography or recording
Harassment of any kind, even in a joking or ironic manner
Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting
Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Behave professionally. Remember that harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate at this event.
Each Guest is entirely responsible for their own actions.
Thank you for helping to make this a welcoming, friendly space for all.
Guests asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a Guest engages in harassing behavior, Event organizers retain the right to take any actions to keep the event a welcoming environment for all participants. This includes warning the offender or expulsion from the Event with no refund.
Event organizers may take action to redress anything designed to, or with the clear impact of, disrupting the event or making the environment hostile for any participants.
We expect Guests to follow these rules at all Event venues and Event-related social activities, including online or virtual activities. We think people should follow these rules outside event activities too!
Reporting an incident
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or by speaking to another Snyk employee.
Snykers will be happy to assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.
