This document describes the basic aspects of personal security for participants, speakers and partners attending the Internet Without Borders conference series in November 2022 – June 2023 in Paris, Haifa, Riga and other cities.
The conferences and hackathon focus on the sensitive topics of censorship, security, and disinformation. These events are focused on face-to-face communication, sharing experiences and working together. For security reasons, we do not broadcast the events. Individual presentations/speeches, with the speaker’s consent, may be recorded.
Please note that the event is public, we have taken a number of measures to create a safer space, but we cannot guarantee absolute privacy and security.
Here are a few things that are important to consider when preparing for an event.
- This is an open event. Registration is available to everyone. The organizers check all applications for participation. Organizers may ask for identification at the entrance to the event venue or refuse participation at the registration stage.
- Conferences are held according to the principles of anonymity of discussions under the “Chatham House Rule” (Chatham House Rule). The “Chatham House” rule stipulates that participants in the discussion have the right to use the information they receive, but that neither the name nor the affiliation of the participant may be disclosed. The principle is intended to preserve the anonymity of speakers, and to encourage openness and information sharing.
- While attending the event and when communicating with other guests, you assume possible risks, because we cannot guarantee that all participants have registered under their real identities.
- To identify the participants of the conference badges will be provided, with an identifying symbol, possibly without a name.
- The organizers reserve the right to refuse entry and/or participation to attendees if:
- They have provided misleading information about themselves
- Expressed an intention to violate the above rules or Code of Conduct
- Attempts to record and publish speeches or discussions or gather information about conference participants in violation of Chatham House rules and this security policy.
- No photos or videos are allowed at the conference.
- Personal data is collected through the registration form. They allow us to optimize the organization of the event. Data is strictly confidential and will be stored for 12 months on servers belonging to the company eQualitie. They are protected by Deflect technology. The data will be used to contact you by email or other contact information you provide in order to invite you to further Internet Without Borders events.
