Code of Conduct

User Experience Philippines

Our commitment to our community

Our aim in hosting events is to offer a positive a safe environment within the community. Just like we believe that more diverse teams build better products, we know that diverse representation at events ultimately creates a stronger community. To that end, our goal is to create an environment where everyone feels welcome to participate, speak up, ask questions, and engage in conversation. We invite all those who participate in this event to help us create safe and positive experiences for everyone.

We follow a Code of Conduct for all our events in order to create the best experience possible for all attendees. Before you participate in a UXPH event, please review the Code of Conduct below.

The UXPH Code of Conduct

All organizers, attendees, members, speakers, sponsors, vendors, partners, and volunteers at UXPH conferences/events/environments are required to adhere to the following Code of Conduct. UXPH event organizers will enforce this Code throughout the event as well as the online community.

Expected Behavior

Event participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event/conference/online community without a refund at the discretion of the organizers. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Harassment, Discrimination, and other Unacceptable Behavior

Every UXPH event/ conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free environment for everyone, regardless of their background and personal preferences.

Harassment includes:

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Event staff can be identified as they'll be wearing branded clothing and/or badges. Event staff will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. If you'd like to report an incident after an event, please send a report to info@uxph.org.

Consequences of unacceptable behavior

Unacceptable behavior from any UXPH community member, including sponsors and those with decision-making authority, will not be tolerated. Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.

If a UXPH community member engages in unacceptable behavior, the community organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from the community without warning (and without refund in the case of a paid event).

Ticket Refunds, Transfers, and No-Shows

All activities and events organized by the UXPH Community are carefully planned and well thought of, as every cent that goes to the funding of our activities and events as a non-profit organization are very important. Paid tickets by UXPH are non-refundable but are transferable; please contact us at info@uxph.org and cc the details of the attending participant/s to us for transfers and concerns.

Attendance to all UXPH activities and events are tracked and require an RSVP from attendees unless otherwise stated or explicitly invited. Currently, UXPH uses Eventbrite.com for event ticketing and tracking purposes.

UXPH does not tolerate any form of gatecrashing to our activities and events. We reserve the right to deny entry to anyone who had previously been found violating this Code of Conduct or had failed to RSVP to any of our activities or event. This is done to ensure that all those who RSVPd will be accommodated. Registrants who fail to attend without canceling his/her RSVP can be barred from signing-up for our future activities and events.

If you seem incapable of attending the event and have a slot reserved, please vacate the seat as soon as possible so another attendee may avail of it or please contact us immediately at info@uxph.org.
