Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

Our company values guide us in our day-to-day interactions and decision-making. Our open source projects are no exception. Trust, respect, collaboration, and transparency are core values we believe should live and breathe within our projects. Our community welcomes interns from around the world with different experiences, unique perspectives, and great ideas to share.

Our Pledge

In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

Our Standards

Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:

  • Using welcoming and inclusive language
  • Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
  • Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
  • Attempting collaboration before conflict
  • Focusing on what is best for the community
  • Showing empathy towards other community members
  • Adding your perspective and creativity to avoid duplicating the original work.

Examples of unacceptable behavior by interns include:

  • Plagiarism, copying, or directly reproducing someone else's work
  • Sharing Falsified Payment Receipt Screenshots
  • Violence, threats of violence, or inciting others to commit self-harm
  • The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances
  • Trolling, intentionally spreading misinformation, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
  • Public or private harassment
  • Publishing others' private information, such as a physical or electronic address, without explicit permission
  • Abuse of the reporting process to intentionally harass or exclude others
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior
  • Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting

Our Responsibilities

We are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.

We have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned with this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that we deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.


This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community. Examples of representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a project may be further defined and clarified by project maintainers.


Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting us anonymously through email. All complaints will be reviewed and investigated, resulting in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The project team is obligated to maintain confidentiality regarding the reporter of an incident.

Interns who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions, as determined by us.

If you are unsure whether an incident is a violation or whether the space where the incident took place is covered by our Code of Conduct, we encourage you to still report it. We prefer to receive a few extra reports where we decide to take no action, rather than leave an incident unnoticed and unresolved, which could lead an individual or group to feel they can no longer participate in the community. Reports deemed not a violation will also help us improve our Code of Conduct and the processes surrounding it. If you witness a dangerous situation or someone in distress, we encourage you to report it, even if you are only an observer.


This Code of Conduct is adapted from the Contributor Covenant, version 1.4.
