Reporting

If you are being harassed by a member of HugoConf, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the Organisers at support@cloudcannon.com. If the person who is harassing you is on the team, they will recuse themselves from handling your incident. We will respond as promptly as we can.

This code of conduct applies to HugoConf spaces, but if you are being harassed by a member of HugoConf outside our spaces, we still want to know about it. We will take all good-faith reports of harassment by HugoConf members seriously. This includes harassment outside our spaces and harassment that took place at any point in time. The Organisers reserve the right to exclude people from HugoConf based on their past behavior, including behavior outside HugoConf spaces and behavior towards people who are not in HugoConf.

In order to protect volunteers from abuse and burnout, we reserve the right to reject any report we believe to have been made in bad faith. Reports intended to silence legitimate criticism may be deleted without response.

We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we’ve received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of HugoConf members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.

Consequences

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, Organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all HugoConf spaces and identification of the participant as a harasser to other HugoConf members or the general public.
