 This also means that any form of harassment or other behaviour that makes people uncomfortable has no place at CryptoParties. In our experience situations like these (as seldom as they occur) stem rather from social ineptitude than malice and can thus be resolved by making people aware of their behaviour and its effect on others, but in last consequence it is on the organizers of the CryptoParty to ask people to leave if they don't adhere to this very simple rule. Be excellent to each other. Awareness is key in this regard. This also means that any form of harassment or other behaviour that makes people uncomfortable has no place at CryptoParties.

 CryptoParties happen because people make them happen. The most amazing and unforeseen learning experiences happen because people make them happen.

If you are too shy to propose to the whole room: Ask the person ​standing next to you first. CryptoParties happen because people make them happen.

 +===== Independence =====
 +
 +==== Political ====
 +
 +While CryptoParties are inherently political, they are independent from any political party or politics in general.
 +
 +Political parties may not facilitate CryptoParties in their name.
 +
 +==== Commercial ====
 +
 +Companies or NGOs may not facilitate or sponsor CryptoParties in any form.
 +
 +==== Recommended Tools ====
 +
 +The tools recommended at CryptoParties need to be Free Software (FLOSS) and/or Open Hardware.
 +
 +As a starting point, working with the software and hardware that participants already use is fine, and, to some extent, even encouraged, though.
