By attending NASA events you are agreeing to abide by the rules presented below and to follow the directions of NASA staff members at the event. Failure to abide by or listen to staff directions may result in removal or banishment from the current and future events.
Harassment is defined as behavior meant to disturb persistently; torment, as with troubles or cares; bother continually; pester; persecute. All forms of harassment, including but not limited to inappropriate or unwanted physical contact, stalking, intimidation, bullying, or threatening behavior in relation to race, religion, sex, age, disability, citizenship, identity, or other personal traits, are prohibited. Any attendee or staff member found to violate our harassment policy will face swift action at the discretion of staff, including removal and banishment from NASA events.
We do recommend that you try and solve minor conflicts on your own.
If you are found to have stolen another person's belongings, you will have to give the item(s) back. Depending on the condition of the item(s) return, you may have to reimburse the owner. Depending on what is stolen, you may be asked to leave the current event, and be possibly banished from future events.
No littering or leaving a mess. If you make a mess, clean it up with the help of hotel staff if needed. Keep food and drinks away from equipment and video games. If you see a mess that has not been cleaned up, please let a NASA Staff or hotel staff know so we can get things cleaned up.
If you break something you will need to reimburse the owner. In an effort to not have things broken, do not tamper with any equipment unless you have explicit permission by its owner. If you are not NASA Staff then do not tamper with any streaming equipment, including computers & projectors.
All attendees need to wear their badge visibly when in event spaces. You cannot loan your badge to others. If you lose your badge, a replacement can be bought for $5 to pay for the cost of the badge itself.
Being intoxicated is not banned, but if you are obnoxious you will be told to leave event spaces. NASA Staff and its volunteers are not responsible for you if you are arrested for any alcohol or drug related conduct.
Follow all directions made by a hotel or NASA Staff member. Staff has a final say on any issues as they might arise, including anything not covered by the rules above. NASA Staff will make a good faith effort to provide explanation and choose the best options to ensure the safety of all attendees and a hospitable event environment.
