Code of Conduct
Nitrogen empowers the world to invest fearlessly. We achieve this by serving as a platform for engaging, thought-provoking conversations and experiences. However, the Fearless Investing Summit is not a place for inappropriate, off-topic, disruptive, abusive, or illegal behavior.
This Code of Conduct outlines our expectations for all Fearless Investing Summit participants. Event organizers will enforce this code and expect cooperation from all event participants (e.g., speakers, attendees, media, sponsors, exhibitors, and staff) to help us promote a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.
Nitrogen expects its event participants to communicate professionally and constructively, whether in person or virtually, handling dissent or disagreement with courtesy, dignity, and an open mind, being respectful when providing feedback, and being open to alternate points of view.
Nitrogen defines inappropriate behavior as that which undermines the spirit of Fearless Investing Summit, including any form of written, verbal or physical abuse or threats, the use of derogatory or discriminatory language, gestures or actions, any form of harassment, racism, sexism, or any other targeted comments which may violate any local, state or federal laws before, during or after the Fearless Investing Summit while on-site or while engaging in any online aspect of the event.
This also includes obeying rules and regulations set forth by the venue, including possessing alcoholic beverages in areas not specifically designated for alcohol consumption, smoking and vaping other than in designated areas, and possessing any illegal substance such as narcotics.
Health & Safety Requirements
Nitrogen expects all event attendees to follow public health guidelines regarding safety, hygiene, and local COVID-19 ordinances, including routine hand washing, staying home if you are sick, and other illness prevention measures.
Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior
Nitrogen may take action in its discretion to address any individual(s) or group(s) that fails to meet the standards outlined in this Code of Conduct, including, without limitation, warning the offender, revoking the violating parties’ credentials without refund, canceling the event’s host hotel reservation, and/or banning the offender from future Nitrogen events and activities. All determinations are at the event organizer’s and its representatives sole discretion and are considered final.

California residents have the right to request that we disclose what categories of personal information we collect, use, disclose or sell about you. You may also request the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you. However, we may withhold some information where the risk to you, your personal information, or our business is too great to disclose the information.
- Right to request deletion of your personal information. You may also request that we delete any personal information that we have collected from/about you. However, we may retain personal information as authorized under applicable law, such as personal information required as necessary to provide our services, protect our business and systems from fraudulent activity, to debug and identify errors that impair existing functionality, as necessary for us, or others, to exercise their free speech or other rights, comply with law enforcement requests pursuant to lawful process, for scientific or historical research, for our own internal purposes reasonably related to your relationship with us, or to comply with legal obligations.
