We encourage attendees to take and share their own photographs, as long as the person taking the photo respects others’ expressed wishes. Photography/recording shouldn’t be done covertly or against people’s wishes. If someone does not want their photo taken, don’t take their photo. We encourage you to ask permission before taking photographs or making any kind of recordings of individuals or small groups.
WiDS Villach has photographers on staff and they will also abide by these policies during the conference. We sometimes use photos and records of attendees to promote future conferences. If you don’t want images of yourself to be published, you can opt out by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please do not take photos or record for commercial purposes without expressed consent of conference planners.
Other unacceptable behavior includes possession of any item that can be used as a weapon, and may cause danger to others, drinking alcohol outside designated areas (please drink responsibly), possession or use of any illegal substance, assembling for the purpose of, or resulting in, disturbing the peace, or committing any unlawful act or engaging in any offensive behavior, smoking other than in designated areas, and failure to obey any rules or regulations of the conference venue(s).

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies and to delete cookies. The methods for doing so vary from browser to browser, and from version to version. You can, however, obtain up-to-date information about blocking and deleting cookies via these links:
Blocking all cookies will have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.
We have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the rights are complex, and not all of the details have been included in our summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights. In Austria, it is the “Datenschutzbehörde”.
