Social media acceptable use policy

We welcome users to our social media pages, where we share content and news about Clackmannanshire.  We welcome comments and constructive feedback from members of the community.

While we are happy to hear from everyone, it is important to note that posts by members of the community to our social media pages do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Clackmannanshire Council, and we cannot confirm their accuracy.

We want to ensure that accessing our social media pages is an enjoyable experience for everyone, and we ask that if you post here, you are respectful to all other users.  We reserve the right to remove any content which violates our guidelines, and may block users who do not follow these.

The Council itself, as opposed to its political administration, must be politically neutral in its communications.  Please do not use our pages to promote party political messages or other content.  We will remove any comments that, in our view, may compromise its obligation to maintain political neutrality.

Although this is not an exhaustive list, in general we will not tolerate any posts which we consider to be:

  • abusive
  • threatening
  • harassing
  • harmful
  • defamatory
  • offensive
  • obscene
  • hateful
  • deceptive
  • spamming
  • violating privacy of individuals, particularly vulnerable people
  • commercial solicitation
  • trolling

We ask that

  • you do not swear,
  • comments be civil, tasteful and relevant,
  • you do not post content copied from elsewhere, for which you do not own the copyright,
  • you do not publicise your, or anyone else's, personal information, such as contact details - address, telephone numbers etc,
  • you do not advertise your own or other products or services.
  • you do not pretend to be someone else.

Thank you.
