Brandwatch Events Code of Conduct

Brandwatch events and conferences are working events intended for professional networking, learning, and collaboration in our community. These events exist to encourage an open exchange of ideas and expression and require an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group.

We invite all those who participate in Brandwatch events to help us create a safe and positive experience for everyone. The rules are simple:

Be Kind

Treating people with respect and kindness is at the core of our code of conduct. Think about how your actions affect those around you; if they have a negative effect, reconsider them.

Be Tolerant

Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated at Brandwatch events.This can include verbal harassment, intimidation or threats, physical violence, stalking, sexually explicit behavior, inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome sexual advances, and continued disruption during a talk or event.

Discrimination related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, gender identity or expression, disability, ethnicity, age, physical appearance, or national origin is absolutely not allowed.

Use of illegal substances at Brandwatch events is absolutely not allowed.

Be Aware

Take note of your surroundings and the actions of those around you. If you notice behavior that violates this code of conduct, or which you consider to be inappropriate or offensive, inform the event staff. In addition, if you have a personal safety concern, be sure to notify the event or venue staff immediately.

What are the consequences of violating the code of conduct?

The consequences for violating the code of conduct will be left to the sole determination of Brandwatch event staff. Any and all decisions made by Brandwatch event staff will be final, and will not be open to appeal.

Brandwatch event staff may take any action they deem appropriate, including expelling the participant from the event without warning or refund.

If a participant is engaging in illegal activity or poses a threat, the proper authorities will be contacted and said participant will be banned from all future Brandwatch events.
