The TEDxKyoto Secretariat (hereinafter referred to as the “Secretariat”) is that person or group responsible for organizing an event.
In accordance with the purpose of TEDxKyoto (hereinafter referred to as “this event”), we define this Code of Conduct to ensure a safe and trusted environment, and provide a meaningful experience for everyone.
Participants of this event (meaning all of the people who join as attendees, speakers, volunteer staff, and any other person related to this event) please read this Code of Conduct carefully. Do your best to understand it well, and observe these guidelines, which help the success of our event.
In this event, as much as we possibly can, we welcome and respect a very diverse group of people, regardless of race, nationality, religion, creed, handicap, gender, age, birthplace, philosophy, or occupation.
Therefore, we believe that participants should behave and talk respectfully, politely, and considerately with others. We do not condone any kind of harassment.
If a participant is informed of inappropriate behavior from others (whether this behavior is intentional or not), he or she must stop that behavior immediately. This applies to all visitors, volunteer staff, and others associated with TEDxKyoto.
※ “Harassment” behavior is indicated as:
- For participants, to make unwanted advances, to comment rudely about someone’s personal appearance with sexual overtones, or to touch another person inappropriately.
- In the case of TEDxKyoto volunteer staff participating the other event for support, to to make unwanted advances, to comment rudely about someone’s personal appearance with sexual overtones, or to touch another person inappropriately.

If TEDxKyoto becomes aware of harassment, the Secretariat will not only issue a warning, but will also require that the participant leave the venue immediately at the sole discretion of the organizers.
If a person is ordered to be out of place, Secretariat will not be liable to provide any refund. This code of conduct may be updated in the future in order to better serve our participants and the successful operation of our events.
