Social media moderation

The College’s social media accounts provide a place to discuss Ƭ; its research, events and breaking news. We welcome and encourage contributions to online discussion on our social media channels (eg comments, photos and photo tagging).

The College is strongly committed to freedom of speech. We ask all contributors to follow the guidelines below and to keep comments and postings on topic and constructive:

  • Don’t break the law. Do not post any hateful, defamatory, obscene, deceitful, offensive, threatening, abusive, inflammatory, discriminatory or harassing comments, images or videos, or promote sexually explicit material or violence. Do not post anything that could prejudice a court case.
  • You must not promote discrimination based on background, race, nationality, gender, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation or educational attainment.
  • Avoid posting anything that is not your original creative content or that you do not have a lawful right to post, such as infringed branded logos, graphics, copyrighted text, images or videos.
  • Don’t post anything that contains spam, advertising or promotion of any services.
  • You must not breach any of the terms and conditions set out by the social media platforms themselves.
  • Don’t post any personal, confidential or sensitive information; and ensure you protect the privacy of yourself and others.

The College will remove any comments or postings which violate this policy. For repeated violations by the same person, the user may be blocked from being able to interact with the College’s social media accounts for up to 30 days, or permanently where a breach of the policy is considered sufficiently serious.
