Code of Conduct
All Things Open Conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, operating system or text editor of choice. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference [without a refund] at the discretion of the conference organizers.
Harassment includes offensive verbal 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.
Exhibitors, Sponsors and Speakers are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, exhibitors 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]. 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. [Conference staff can be identified by t-shirts or special badges.]
Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

Cancellation for sponsor / exhibitors will only be accepted in writing via email or letter.

TRANSFERS OF REGISTRATION
If you cannot attend the conference but wish to give your ticket to someone else, you must do so before October 5th, 2016. Please contact us and let us know your plans. We’re not evil overlords though, so contact us anyway and we can try to work it out.
Before any tickets are issued to you, full payment must be transacted.
PHOTOGRAPHY, VIDEO AND QUOTED TEXT
Your registration serves as your permission for us to use you in any event photography or video during the event for future promotional or educational ventures related to the conference. We’ll also want to use any tweets or quotes you make publicly. We’ll fully credit you if we do.
It is our goal to make this conference accessible for all attendees. Should you have any special needs, please contact us prior to the conference so that we can do our best to accommodate your request.
EVENT SUBJECT TO CHANGE
All Things Open reserves the right to relocate or reschedule the event due to extenuating circumstances deemed appropriate by the management of All Things Open. If the event is rescheduled and this date conflicts with a sponsor’s / exhibitor’s schedule, such sponsor / exhibitor may elect to seek a credit of equal or lesser value to be used at a future All Things Open event. Such credit shall be valid for one (1) year from the date of the originally scheduled All Things Open event date.
