2. Community Guidelines for User Interactions. When you interact with others in connection with the Services, be respectful and follow EcommerceTech’s policies. We expect attendees, participants, and speakers to be professional, courteous, and respect, and conduct themselves accordingly. Treat others as you would want to be treated and be polite. Freedom of speech and having an opinion does not mean you can be abusive, hateful, or disruptive.

Ø Do not engage in behavior or activities that are or could be disruptive to other attendees, participants, and/or speakers.
