Our event will be based on the following principles:
We want to make sure that we create a safe, comfortable and inclusive environment and an enjoyable experience (without nuisance) for everyone. Therefore, we require all participants to agree with the following rules of participation in our e-Hackathon:
1. Participation rights, once granted, are unconditional and shall not discriminate based on any personal traits, including but not limited to the following: gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, political views, previous hackathon experience. In turn, participants commit to not discriminate or practice in any kind of hateful behavior towards others and are urged to report such behavior to the e-Hackathon administration. In case harmful or harassing conduct is reported, administrators will investigate these claims and reserve the right to warn the offending party or withdraw right to participation.
2. Sharing provocative material, including sexual imagery, religiously, racially or politically offensive content, hate speech, is prohibited in any instance within the context of the e-Hackathon.
3.

In case you do not consent to this, please contact the administrators ahead of time, but at the latest by June 22nd, 2020, explaining your reasons, so we can inform you on measures to protect your identity.
4. By confirming your participation, you agree to receive e-mails regarding the e-Hackathon ahead of and after the event itself. The administration commits to keeping these to a minimum.
