Protecting your property
There is one word for it: common sense! If you are bringing equipment worth of several thousand euros to the party place, you should take care of it.
Compared to amount of computers and other valuables at the party place ASSEMBLY is a very safe place for one's equipment. However, every year a couple of valuable items go lost - either because they are stolen or the owner misplaces them. Majority of the actually stolen equipment is recovered within a couple of hours, but everytime something is lost for good.
Precautions are everything. Make sure that somebody is always watching over your equipment: ask your friend(s) or the person sitting next to you to look over your equipment when you leave your computer place.
If you can't get anybody to watch over your property, bring it to the Luggage deposit at the Infodesk.
Make sure your insurance covers the property you bring to ASSEMBLY. If your computer's hard drive crashes, it will be much less painful if your insurance company pays for it.
Don't leave valuable small items loitering around. For example, if you have a very expensive piece of headphones, place them in a bag or under the table, instead of leaving them on top of your computer.
Don't bring to the party place valuable property, which you don' t need! Use your common sense!
What to do if your property goes missing
The first step is always to look around. The party place is dark and you might have just misplaced your property. Next ask your neighbors if they have seen your property or noticed anything strange.
If you are sure, that something is missing go to the Infodesk or the Security HQ. If you have just misplaced your property, somebody might have brought it to the Infodesk (Lost & Found). If the missing property is valuable, you should talk immediately to the Security personnel.
Try to give as accurate description of the missing item and the circumstances (time, place etc) to the security personnel. This will increase our chances of recovering your property
