Webmaster Access Rules and Requirements
Webmaster Access 2020 (WMA) is a professional event hosted privately for the benefit of the sponsors, attendees and media attending. Your access to WMA is dependent on your continued acceptance and ability to abide by the simple rules and regulations listed below. Please keep in mind, all rules are subject to change and will be enforced at the complete discretion of WMA staff members. Refunds will not be issued to anyone who is removed or banned based on infractions of these simple rules. Our goal is to provide everyone with a useful, entertaining and profitable experience attending WMA and that goal relies on our ability to ensure everyone in attendance shares the same level of professionalism detailed below:
1 – Individual Access
Your access is granted on an individual basis. Any sharing of your access is prohibited, and you will be held accountable for any actions taken by anyone else who is making use of your access. This includes coworkers, fake nicks, friends, family members or anyone else. Please keep your username and password confidential, and maintain the reputation of your own personal name / brand the same way you would if you were attending a tradeshow in person. Any empty accounts, multiple accounts belonging to one person or other access abuse will get all of your accounts deleted
2 – Zero Tolerance Policy
WMA has a zero tolerance policy relevant to harassment of anyone else attending. This includes other attendees, staff members, sponsors and media. There is zero place for any form of racism, personal attacks, or other communicate aimed at creating problems where none need to exist. We do expect a lively debate about some topics, incisive questions from smart attendees, and we can appreciate the desire to keep things entertaining, but again we will require a professional and inclusive tone to everything that happens throughout the WMA event. This is a simple rule to follow. Don’t be an asshole.
3 – No Spamming
WMA has many sponsorship opportunities available before the show begins and we will continue to offer advertising options throughout the show. If you are an attendee we ask that you show some respect for the sponsors who have generously agreed to fund this event to your benefit, and we require that you refrain from spamming chat rooms or taking other distracting actions designed to promote outside products without the express consent of WMA staff. We fully understand a mention of your site or product may be helpful in asking a question or seeking advice from experts on a panel, we are always aware you know the difference between mentioning a product and spamming it.
4 – Prohibited conduct
Harassment is any improper or unwelcome conduct that might reasonably be expected or be perceived to cause offence or humiliation to another attendee. Harassment in any form because of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, physical ability, physical appearance, ethnicity, race, national origin, political affliation, age, religion or any other reason is prohibited at WMA Virtual. Sexual harassment is a specific type of prohibited conduct. Sexual harassment may involve any conduct of a verbal, nonverbal or physical nature, including written and electronic communications, expected or be perceived to cause offense or humiliation.
5 – Everything Else
For all of the people who like to act like they are Internet lawyers and look for loopholes in the rules, this rule is for you. This rule covers absolutely everything else. If you are doing something that is distracting, or detrimental to the WMA event or any of the professionals who attend it you will be banned from the event. It really is that simple. We are adapting to a very different world during the Covid-19 era and are doing all we can to help you, and all of our attendees, earn more money. Please do your part in helping us to accomplish this important goal by sending us constructive feedback, by working together with everyone else who attends and by doing your best to make this event profitable for everyone who attends. We appreciate your support and are hoping to offer more events in the coming months as we continue to evolve the way tradeshows are done.
