Simply Secure Code of Conduct

We are committed to providing a harassment-free event experience for everyone.

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, religion, technology choices, 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. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the workshop organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, in consultation with the person reporting the harassing behavior. This may include warning the participant, asking them to leave the event, or barring them from this and all future Simply Secure events.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please approach Eileen, Ame or Georgia in person, or write to coc@simplysecure.org, who will introduce themselves at the start of the event. We will work with you to take appropriate action, up to and including contacting venue security or local law enforcement if necessary, though we will never escalate without your permission. We value your attendance and contributions, and we want you to be safe.

This code of conduct applies to interactions between attendees during the course of their attendance at the event, whether or not they occur at the event itself. This means meetups, gatherings, and other social activities officially or unofficially related to our events are also covered by this Code of Conduct.

We expect all participants to follow these rules at the event and associated events.
