Last Updated: April [25th], 2024

By registering for and attending an EBII event, you agree to abide by the following Code of Conduct. Violations of this Code of Conduct may, without notice and without refund, and as determined by EBII in its sole discretion, result in legal action, your removal from EBII events, or revocation of any permissions or materials, as applicable.

  1. Expected Behavior
    • Treat all attendees with respect and consideration, valuing a diversity of views and opinions.
    • Be considerate, respectful, and collegial; critique ideas rather than individuawwwls.
    • Avoid personal attacks directed toward other attendees.
    • Be mindful of your surroundings, other event attendees, and event support staff.
    • Alert on-premises security personnel and EBII if you notice a dangerous situation or someone clearly in distress.
    • Respect the rules and policies of the host venue and any other venue associated with an EBII event.
  2. No Recording; No Grant of Rights
    • You will not record any aspect of the event without EBII’s prior express consent. 
    • EBII reserves all intellectual property rights in and to the event, the event content, and all materials distributed at or in connection with the event (“Event IP”). EBII does not grant you any right to use or reproduce, or allow anyone else to use or reproduce, any Event IP for any reason without EBII’s prior express consent.
  1. No Solicitation
    • EBII events, meetings, communication channels, and other programs are for education and networking pursuits only. 
    • You may not (and will not assist any other party to) solicit other attendees for the sale of any products, services, or events without EBII’s prior express consent (e.g., if you are an official event sponsor and have obtained permission to advertise your business). 
    • You may not use any EBII communication channels to send any communication that is or may be construed as an advertisement or solicitation. 
  1. Communication is Confidential
    • If EBII facilitates a communication channel between you and any third party, then you will keep all such communications private and will not disclose the content of such communications to other third parties without the consent of EBII. 
    • If, in relation to the event, you come into possession of confidential information, you will safeguard the information from the public and will not intentionally or inadvertently communicate it to any person who does not need to know the information for legitimate business reasons. 
    • You will not disclose confidential, sensitive, or proprietary information obtained as a consequence of your association with EBII to third parties without express authorization from EBII. 
  1. Disclose Conflicts of Interest
    • In making any recommendations or referrals, you will disclose any actual or potential conflicts of interest.
  1. Social Media
    • Not all attendees are comfortable having their images on social media. You will respect the privacy of other attendees by asking permission from all persons visible in any images prior to posting.
    • Social media posts should not violate any laws or ethical standards and should not be false or misleading.
    • All posts should make clear that you are speaking and posting on your own behalf.
