External Social Media Policy
- We operate various social media communities on various social media services and are glad to have you as a community member. We encourage you to publish content and interact with us and other community members through our communities.
- This policy applies to your conduct on any of our communities on any social media service. Social media is a broad term that covers any existing or future digital tool or other kind of technology that allows one person to publish the same message to many people in a public or semi-public forum at the same time using the Internet or a similar communications network.
Not our View
- We’re always glad to hear from you and encourage you to engage through our social media communities, but what you and other community members publish on our social media communities do not necessarily reflect our views. In fact, the views you and other community members express are yours or theirs alone and not ours.
- We will do our best to reply to anything that you publish to our social media communities or send directly to us through social media within a reasonable time, but there may be times when we take longer to reply to you. We generally moderate our social media communities from 08h00 to 17h00 on weekdays other than public holidays. We also generally have reduced hours for replying to anything published after hours, on the weekend, or on public holidays. We may also sometimes only reply to these on the next available working day. However, we are not liable for responding within an unreasonable time or failing to respond to you at all.
- We appreciate it when you post content to our social media communities and we may acknowledge it with a ‘like’, ‘retweet’, ‘favourite’, or other way of acknowledging it depending on the particular social media service you published it on. But, the mere fact that we acknowledge something you publish does not mean that we endorse it in any way. We only endorse something if we explicitly say that we do in writing.
We believe in freedom of speech and we encourage you to conduct yourself as you please (within reason) on our social media communities, provided that it doesn’t amount to abuse. You’re allowed to respectfully disagree with someone, but you’re not allowed to attack them personally. You may not engage in any of the following prohibited conduct:
- discrimination, which means treating someone in a certain way based on prejudice – like racism, homophobia, bigotry, or other kinds of prejudice.
- hate speech, which means attacking someone based on their attributes – like their gender, ethnicity, religion, race, disability, or sexual orientation;
- harassment, which means harming someone or threatening to harm them – like bullying, intimidation, or stalking; or
- trolling, which means a specific way of harassing someone online by intentionally sowing discord, starting arguments, or publishing objectionable content.
We look forward to having your content on our social media communities and want you to feel empowered to publish anything within reason. But, you may not publish any prohibited content including:
- illegal content that is prohibited by law – like child pornography, pirated content, or content that otherwise infringes someone else’s copyright or other rights;
- harmful content that could cause harm to someone – like defamatory comments, fraudulent claims, or untrue statements;
- offensive content that could reasonably offend someone – like pornography, obscenities, or anything intended to shock someone; or
impermissible content – contrary to any codes or standards that we subscribe to and make you aware of. Competitions We run promotional competitions through social media from time to time. These promotional competitions are regulated by rules that determine what entries we accept, how we randomly select winners, and how the competition is monitored by auditors or other monitoring parties. The law requires us to have these rules and to appoint an external party to oversee that the competition is conducted fairly and according to the rules. A copy of the rules is available to you on request if you are an entrant or available on our websites. You may not engage in any of the following prohibited conduct:
- unjustified outcries, which means strong expressions of public disapproval or anger based on false assumptions – like “The competition was rigged!” (our competitions are run strictly in accordance with the law and any baseless claim to the contrary is defamation against us);
- discriminatory objections, which means negative comments about the competition or its results based on attributes of the individual entrants or winners, including their gender, ethnicity, religion, race, disability, or sexual orientation – like “I can’t believe only [insert attribute here] people won!” or “Not even a single [insert attribute here] person won!” (anyone is allowed to enter our competitions and winners are randomly chosen by computer software under the supervision of an external party – no one has any control over who wins or who does not and there may be multiple winners with a single attribute and none with yours); and
- prohibited discussions, which means certain aspects of promotional competitions that we are not allowed to talk to you about in terms of our promotional competition rules, like the personal details of the winners. We also advise you not to share personal information on any public platform. Rather send us a private inbox message to keep your personal details safe.
- Unfortunately, other community members may not abide by this policy and you may have to report them to us. You should not feel bad about reporting your fellow community members if you have a legitimate reason to think that they have breached this policy, particularly if they have done something to negatively affect you. However, you should not report anyone lightly. Any use of our reporting facility to censor discussion may itself be regarded as a breach of this policy.
Each social media community has features that allow us to edit or completely remove published content under certain circumstances. We value your contributions to our communities and will never use these features to edit or remove content you publish unnecessarily. But, as the moderator of our social media communities we are responsible for overseeing their content. We have complete discretion to edit or remove anything you publish on our social media communities that we think is inconsistent with this policy without notice to you. We may also impose filters on our social media communities depending on the features of the relevant social media service that prevent you and other community members from posting content containing certain keywords in the first place. We may moderate any of the following things as described above among others:
- anything that is not relevant to a social media community or the conversation in question;
- anything that results from prohibited conduct, including discrimination, hate speech, harassment, or trolling;
- prohibited content, including content that is illegal, harmful, offensive, or impermissible; or
- prohibited promotional competition related content, including unjustified outcries, discriminatory objections, or prohibited discussions
Queries and Reinstatement
- If we have removed anything that you have published, you may ask us for reasons why it was removed. We will do our best to inform you of the reason for removal, but are not required to do so. We also need not tell any other community members why we have decided to remove your content. Unfortunately, there may be times when we cannot give detailed legal reasons for why we have decided to remove anything you publish. We will only reinstate your removed content if we have a compelling reasons to do so.
- There may come a time when you or another community member breaches this policy in a way that calls for action from our side. We have absolute discretion to take action if we deem you to have breached this policy and may take recourse against you in the form of a suspension or a ban.
- We may suspend your right to participate in any of our social media communities if you do not comply with this policy, which means that you will not be able to access it for a period of time. Some social media services do not allow the temporary suspension of community members, in which case we may ban you instead.
- We may ban you from any of our social media communities outright under extreme circumstances, which mean that you will not be able to access it for the foreseeable future.
- We may also ban or suspend any other social media accounts that we suspect you to be operating through after we have taken recourse against you through your initial account.
- If we have suspended or banned you, you may appeal to us to reinstate your access to a social media community. We will provide you with steps to take to ask to be reinstated by email if we decide to suspend or ban you so that the process is as just and equitable as possible.
