White Ribbon’s social media community ethics

Be respectful

Please be respectful of shared ideas, experiences and viewpoints. Comments will be removed that use obscenities, personal insults, ethnic slurs or other disparaging language.

Keep your comments and posts on topic

The purpose of White Ribbon’s social media platforms is to provide an avenue for the community to discuss the issue of violence against women. White Ribbon may edit or remove inappropriate or off-topic posts and comments at any time.

Protect your privacy

White Ribbon recommends users protect their privacy. Users must not violate other users’ privacy, such as releasing personal information about others, for example name, address or phone number. White Ribbon will not verify personal information posted by others.

Links to other websites

White Ribbon is not responsible for the content of any linked website, or any link contained in a linked website, or any changes or updates to any such websites. The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by White Ribbon of that website.

Engaging in commercial activity

White Ribbon’s social media platforms are to be used for White Ribbon related activity and discussion. If White Ribbon believes that a user is engaging in commercial or non-commercial activity outside this spectrum, the user may receive a warning or be removed from the page. Some examples include selling unrelated products, services or yourself through the network, or linking to unrelated commercial sites.
