Code of conduct
The code of conduct explains how the SEA-UNICORN project monitors and ensures civil discussions with and between community members, and corrective action if there is a violation of these codes.
We want this to be a fun, pleasant, and harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of community members in any form. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Those listed in the 'Contact Us' page are considered administrators. If you have an issue regarding the code of conduct, please contact them.
Don't repeat or quote things said here without the affirmative consent of the speaker(s). Please refer to the quote as something that was said "in chat" or while you were talking to the quoted member.
Please be mindful that things you say here may at some point become public. While we expect members to honor the confidentiality of this space, we cannot guarantee that they will do so--nor can we guarantee that every member's login credentials and logged-in devices are secure. Please exercise caution and refrain from sharing sensitive information that could harm you or others if it became public.
Logs and records
Please be mindful that things you say here may at some point become public. We cannot prevent people from 'screencapping' or otherwise recording this slack. We also can't guarantee that every member's login credentials and logged-in devices are secure. Files uploaded here can be downloaded by anyone with a login. Please exercise caution and refrain from sharing sensitive information that could harm you, your employer, or others if it became public.
Because this is a free slack account, we have restricted scrollback, but Slack--the company--retains complete logs of all channels and direct messages back to the creation of the SEA-UNICORN Slack.
Slack is a U.S. company and therefore subject to subpoenas from U.S. courts. Our logs may be subject to subpoena and could become public as part of legal proceedings.

Publication of non-harassing private communication
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the admins. They'll respond as promptly as they can.
We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we’ve received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the admins may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from this slack and identifying the participant publicly as someone about whom we've received complaints.
