PIGSquad Code of Conduct

The Portland Indie Game Squad (“PIGSquad”) is an Oregon nonprofit corporation that provides charitable and educational resources, events, and networking opportunities to the game development and enthusiast community in Portland, Oregon.

Participants

Anyone associated with PIGSquad in any way, including all members, participants, attendees, speakers, sponsors, volunteers, or staff (“Participants”), is subject to this Code of Conduct while they are participating in the PIGSquad community, including attending any event organized by PIGSquad, using any PIGSquad media channels, or communicating with or about other people associated with PIGSquad.

Inclusion

PIGSquad is dedicated to providing an inclusive, welcoming, and safe environment for everyone. Participants must be considerate of others and behave in a professional and respectful manner. PIGSquad invites all Participants to help further these values.

Unacceptable Behavior

No unacceptable behavior of any kind will be tolerated. This also applies to games or content created or shared in the PIGSquad community. Participants asked to stop any unacceptable behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Unacceptable behavior includes sexism, racism, discrimination, disruptive behavior, harassment, and exclusion of any kind.

Reporting

If you experience or notice any unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the PIGSquad staff immediately. PIGSquad treats all reports as confidential and asks that Participants avoid disclosing information about an incident until PIGSquad has addressed the situation.

Resolution

If PIGSquad determines, either by observation or complaint, that a Participant has violated this Code of Conduct, PIGSquad may take any action it deems appropriate, including warning the offender, expelling the offender from the event without a refund, or temporarily or permanently suspending the offender from future events.

All determinations of unacceptable behavior are in PIGSquad’s sole discretion and its decisions are final.
