About ORing Conditions

When checking for one of the multiple conditions with or, put the most straightforward and fastest conditions at the beginning, for example:

if user.is_superuser or user.groups.filter(name="Admins").exists():

When you are or-ing the conditions, Python looks for the first True-ish condition and ignores the rest. So by following this practice you can avoid unnecessary database queries or calculations.
