Social media guidelines

Avondale College of Higher Education’s social media guidelines relate to its social media channels.

Be privacy and security conscious

Don’t include confidential, personal or sensitive information (such as bank details, birthday, home address, phone number) in your comments or posts.

Respect others

Seek permission, if necessary, before posting or uploading content. It’s your responsibility to ensure any content you post respects the intellectual property, the privacy or any other rights of other people or organisations. If we think you’ve infringed these rights, we may delete the applicable content.

Know when and why we’ll moderate. We don’t take decisions about moderating lightly, but we’ll remove content that don’t adhere to these guidelines and block anyone who chooses to repeatedly break them. We’ll remove content containing:
  • Abusive, defamatory, hateful or offensive language
  • Inaccurate, misleading or inappropriate statements about Avondale, its courses and its people
  • Confidential, personal or sensitive information
  • Unlawful information
  • Violations of any intellectual property rights
  • Malicious content
  • Solicitation
  • Spam
  • Suspicious links (phishing, for example)
  • Trolling or deliberately disruptive discussions

Help us keep our social media channels suitable for all audiences. If you think content breaks any of these guidelines, email us.

Other guidelines

Posts by users of Avondale’s social media channels do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Avondale, nor does Avondale confirm their accuracy.

By using Avondale’s social media channels, we understand you’re familiar with and agree to comply with each channel’s terms and conditions (where relevant).

As social media is a public forum and participation is voluntary, you grant Avondale and its affiliates the right to use any posted content in any way and in any media without any legal or monetary obligation to the author.

You can unlike or unfollow us at any time if you no longer want to connect with any of Avondale’s social media channels.
