We as members, contributors, and leaders pledge to make participation in our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, visible or invisible disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
We pledge to act and interact in ways that contribute to an open, welcoming, diverse, inclusive, and healthy community. Tailscale and its communities are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for participants at all of our events, whether they are held in person or virtually. They exist to encourage the open exchange of ideas and expression. They require an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group. While at Tailscale events or related ancillary or social events, any participants, including members, speakers, attendees, volunteers, sponsors, exhibitors, booth staff and anyone else, should not engage in harassment in any form.
This Events Code of Conduct may be revised at any time by Tailscale and the terms are non-negotiable. Registration for or attendance at any Tailscale event, whether it's held in person or virtually, indicates your agreement to abide by this policy and its terms.
All event participants, whether they are attending an in-person event or a virtual event, are expected to behave in accordance with professional standards, with both this Events Code of Conduct as well as their respective employer's policies governing appropriate workplace behavior and applicable laws.
Harassment will not be tolerated in any form, whether in person or virtually. Harassment includes the use of abusive, offensive or degrading language, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, sexual imagery and unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors. Any report of harassment at one of our events, whether in person or virtual, will be addressed immediately. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Anyone who witnesses or is subjected to unacceptable behavior should notify a conference organizer at once.
Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, whether in person or virtually, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate depending on the circumstances, ranging from issuance of a warning to the offending individual to expulsion from the conference with no refund. Tailscale reserves the right to exclude any participant found to be engaging in harassing behavior from participating in any further Tailscale events, trainings or other activities.
If a participant (or individual wishing to participate in a Tailscale event, in-person and/or virtual), through postings on social media or other online publications or another form of electronic communication, engages in conduct that violates this policy, whether before, during or after a Tailscale event, Tailscale may take appropriate corrective action, which could include imposing a temporary or permanent ban on an individual's participation in future Tailscale events.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns relating to harassment, please contact a member of the conference staff immediately. You are also encouraged to contact Katie Reese, Senior Events Manager, at email@example.com.
