Welcome to Nordic Game, Europe’s leading games conference and the only event in the world with a dedicated focus on the entire Nordic industry.
This code of conduct covers all Nordic Game events, community actions and discussions. We invite all participants, be they attendees, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, media or other partners, along with all other stakeholders, to help us realise a safe and positive environment for all.
Nordic Game is committed to keeping our events and community safe for everyone and we have a zero-tolerance policy on harassment in any form. We are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, age, financial situation, or body and functionality. Our aim is to make sure that individuals working in or related to the Nordic Game community are aware of and committed to fighting against sexual and other forms of harassment and aware of local laws and regulations concerning these matters.
This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participant behaviour as well as the consequences of unacceptable behaviour.
Unacceptable behaviours include intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory or demeaning conduct by any participant.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexuality, ethnicity, age, financial situation, or body and functionality.
Unacceptable behaviour also includes deliberate intimidation, stalking or following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.
Unacceptable behaviour includes physical, written, verbal or other abuse, intimidation, threats, annoyance, harassment, stalking, pushing, shoving or use of any physical force whatsoever against any person, which in any way creates a disturbance that is disruptive or dangerous or creates apprehension in a person.
Unacceptable behaviour includes any boisterous, lewd or offensive behaviour or language, including but not limited to using sexually explicit or offensive language, materials or conduct, or any language, behaviour or content that contains profanity, obscene gestures, or racial, religious, gender or ethnic slurs.
Unacceptable behaviour includes assembling for the purpose of, or resulting in, disturbing the peace, or committing any unlawful act or engaging in any offensive behaviour.
Failure to comply with this code of conduct or any other Nordic Game event or activity rules and regulations will result in actions detailed below.
Consequences of unacceptable behaviour
Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behaviour is expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in unacceptable behaviour, Nordic Game may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the event or activity without warning or refund.
If you witness something inappropriate or feel yourself threatened, uncomfortable or harassed in any way, report the behaviour to any person on our safety team, as a rule wearing blue shirts at the event. Any Nordic Game staff member can be approached to bring you into contact with the safety team.
We expect all participants to contribute to a safe and positive environment for everyone, but it is not your responsibility to determine whether another participant is in breach of our code of conduct; that is for Nordic Game staff to decide. Thus, please report anything you think may be in breach, and rely on our staff to take the tough decisions.
At any time during or after an event or activity, inappropriate behaviour can be reported to our independent whistle-blower channel at nordicgame.indberet.nu, administered by Dahl Attorneys in Copenhagen.
Your safety and peace of mind are of paramount importance to us. All suggestions for improvements to our events, activities and this code of conduct are very welcome; please send them to us here.
