Privacy Policy

The Linux Expo of Southern California gathers personal information from people who register to attend the So Cal Linux Expo. This information is ONLY used by SCALE to improve future Expos. If other groups that participate in SCALE ask for information about attendees to improve their offering at SCALE, and we agree to share it, it will be only those demographics that are not identifiable to any individual. 

We'll treat your personal information like your other valuable possessions; with great care. 

Note that you can give your badge information to vendors if you're interested in getting more information about their products. That's voluntary, and SCALE does not participate in that information exchange.


SCALE is intended to be a safe and enjoyable place for all participants.  If a fellow participant is making you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, please alert a SCALE team member immediately. 

Remember that SCALE is a family event, so we strongly encourage exhibitors, speakers and other participants to consider their environment & surroundings. All attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout the conference and at all conference events, whether officially sponsored by SCALE or not.  Please use common sense & think before you speak/act, we have no interest in being the good-taste police. 

If you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, notice that someone else appears uncomfortable, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the conference staff. Conference staff will be wearing "SCALE" jerseys. You may also contact hotel staff and ask to be put in touch with the SCALE Operations Chair — Gareth Greenaway.
