OCA Code of Conduct

The Odoo Community Association is a diverse community who maintains a reputation as a friendly, welcoming, inspiring and dynamic group of people. We’d like to keep it that way, which is why we ask all contributors, members and daily users within the community as well as participants, speakers, organizers and sponsors at OCA events (collectively: the participants) to respect and follow this code of conduct (CoC).

This Code of Conduct applies to day to day participation within the community as well as at all events.

If you have questions regarding this CoC, please contact coc@odoo-community.org. Your questions will only be seen by the members of the OCA Board and treated confidentially.

Be nice with each other

We trust that participants within the community will treat each other in a way that reflects the widely held view that diversity and friendliness are strengths of our collective to be celebrated and fostered.

Furthermore, we believe anyone has a right to:

  • be treated with courtesy, dignity and respect

  • be free from any form of discrimination, victimization, harassment or bullying

  • enjoy an environment free from unwelcome behavior, inappropriate language and unsuitable imagery

Be professional and don’t spam

We consider OCA activities and events a great setting to showcase the work of the community.  We would like to encourage networking and business related discussions, as well as keep the daily communication and any conference presentations at events meaningful and interesting for everyone.

We therefore:

  • only allow company marketing or recruiting related activities at the conference in accordance with our sponsoring agreements

  • request presentations - outside the official sessions - to focus on Odoo related topics, not on recruitment.

The OCA Board will be happy to answer any questions related to marketing or recruiting activities.

Solving problems

If problems covered by this code of conduct arise, please contact coc@odoo-community.org. Any complaint will remain confidential, be taken seriously, investigated, and dealt with appropriately.

The OCA Board reserve the right to carry out any of the following actions relating to a complaint:

  • The person concerned may be told to stop/modify their behavior appropriately and a warning will be issued.

  • The person concerned may be warned that enforcement action may be taken if the behavior continues.

  • The person concerned may be asked to leave any forum whether online or a physical event immediately and/or may be prohibited from continuing to participate in any OCA-organized communication channel, working environment or  event (without refund). 

  • The incident may be reported to the local authorities if deemed appropriate.
