Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct:

The PaymentsEd Forum was created by a dedicated group of merchant professionals to provide a safe space where merchants could share ideas, concerns, and solutions for those in the online payments space.

We all learn from one another when we respect that space and respect one another.

As such, everyone at any PaymentsEd Forum event, including but not limited to our annual forum, off site social events, board meetings: face to face, and electronic, social media, etc. are required to abide by our code of conduct, as set out below:

1. Be inclusive.
We welcome and support people of all backgrounds and identities. This includes but is not limited to members of any sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, social and economic class, educational level, color, immigration status, sex, age, size, family status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.

2. Be considerate.
We all depend on each other to create the most collaborative networking and content we can to provide working solutions to our merchant base. Your input impacts all of us working in this space, and we encourage everyone to be considerate in your speech, your behavior, and your decisions.

3. Be respectful.
We won't all agree all the time, but disagreement is no excuse for disrespectful behavior. We will all experience frustration from time to time, but we cannot allow that frustration become personal attacks. An environment where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive or creative one.

4. Choose your words carefully.
Always conduct yourself professionally. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down others. Harassment and exclusionary behavior aren't acceptable. This includes, but is not limited to:

Threats of violence.
Discriminatory jokes and language.
Sharing sexually explicit or violent material via other means.
Personal insults, especially those using racist or sexist terms.
Unwelcome sexual attention.
Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.
Inappropriately filming someone

5. Don't harass.
In general, if someone asks you to stop something, then stop. When we disagree, try to understand why. Differences of opinion and disagreements are mostly unavoidable. What is important is that we resolve disagreements and differing views constructively.

All attendees are expected to follow all local health guidelines and requirements when attending the Forum.

Consequences of unacceptable behavior
Unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated. Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately. If a Participant engages in unacceptable behavior, PaymentsEd Forum will take any action it deems appropriate, including warning or expelling the offender from the event with no refund.

For more egregious behavior, PaymentsEd Forum may, in its reasonable discretion, temporarily ban or permanently expel a Participant from the community.

What to do if you witness or are subjected to unacceptable behavior
If you are subjected to unacceptable behavior, notice that someone else is being subjected to unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify PaymentsEd event staff or contact the PaymentsEd Forum Executive Director, or a Member of the Board as soon as possible.

PaymentsEd Forum event staff will be available to assist those experiencing unacceptable behavior to feel safe for the duration of the event. All reports will remain completely confidential.
