Event Terms & Conditions


We ask that all attendees adhere to our Code of Conduct to ensure that our events are a place where everyone can feel welcome and safe.

Full Terms & Conditions

Code of Conduct

Our events are friendly events where everyone should feel welcome, safe and comfortable to share ideas and engage in open discussion without the threat of intimidation or public humiliation. Please be respectful in person and on social media towards other delegates, speakers, organisers and staff.

We are committed to providing a harassment-free and inclusive event experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of event participants, speakers or staff in any form.

Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for any event venue, including talks. Event participants who violate these rules may be expelled from the event (without a refund) at the discretion of the organisers. Harassment includes but is not limited to: offensive verbal comments, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. These policies apply in every space at the venue related to event activity, and to all participants in every role.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of event staff immediately. They can be identified by their t-shirts. We will be happy to assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event, for example by providing escorts or contacting police should this be required.

We expect participants to follow these rules at all venues and event-related social events.

We have lovely delegates and trust that this code of conduct mirrors the views of the majority of our participants.

Ticketing platform

When you purchase a ticket, we need to collect the following information in order to process the payment:

  • Payment details

White October Events and Tito keeps a record of your name and email address so that we can contact you about your ticket purchase. We do not keep your payment details. You can read Tito's privacy notice here.

We ask conference attendees to provide us with certain personal information. We ask questions like "do you have any special access or dietary requirements" to help ensure that we are running a high quality and fully inclusive event. Other information (such as job role, or level of experience) helps us get a better understanding about our audience, which helps us to continually refine and improve our service. We might ask for your t-shirt size so that we can give you a t-shirt which fits!

Anonymised data based on some parts of the information we collect is sometimes used in marketing material. We promise never to share your data with any third parties without your express permission. We will keep your data for 4 years after the conference.
