Techweek Code of Conduct
Techweek is an inclusive, friendly, progressive space in which to discover and discuss NZ technology, design and innovation that’s good for the world.
It is an initiative that welcomes all people and we expect all event hosts and attendees to treat each other with respect and kindness regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, physical ability, political beliefs or appearance. We expect Techweek event hosts and participants to act with integrity and in a collaborative manner that builds trust, and to respect the environment they are holding and attending events in. This is a place for collective enthusiasm, excitement and curiosity and we will not tolerate behaviour that runs counter to these values.
If we witness behaviour that is inappropriate or at odds with the spirit of Techweek, we reserve the right to ask those involved to leave any event(s), and to restrict their attendance at future Techweek events.
Event hosts are responsible for the creation, marketing, ticketing and production of their own events. Event hosts are responsible for ensuring that all required health, safety and public liability insurance requirements at their events are met.
Techweek is unable to offer refunds for tickets purchased to Techweek events under any circumstances. If seeking a refund, attendees must refer to the refund policy of the relevant event organiser.
Photographs and/or audio/video recordings taken at Techweek events by Techweek, or others on behalf of Techweek, may include an attendee’s image, name, voice and/or likeness. By attending and/or participating in the Events, each attendee grants Techweek permission to use the attendee’s photograph, image, likeness, voice and statements for any purpose, including but not limited to commercial purposes, without compensation or credit to the attendee in any and all media now known or hereafter devised.
In no event shall Techweek be liable to any attendees, or any other person or entity for any personal injury or damages to property, damages for loss of business profits or any other pecuniary loss, including any direct, consequential, incidental, special, punitive or similar damages, arising out of a person or entity’s involvement in a Techweek event.
