Social media terms of use

Thanks for interacting with Canterbury Christ Church University’s official social media accounts.  

We welcome your contributions and questions and encourage you to participate in our online community. To allow our accounts to be a valuable place for our followers we ask that all users interact in a respectful way and that you take note of the following terms of use.

The University’s social media is administered Monday - Friday during normal office hours (9am - 5.30pm). If you post during these times we will endeavour to respond to you as soon as we can. If you contact us during the evenings, at weekends or when the University is closed for bank holidays and over the Christmas period, we will get back to you as soon as possible when we are back in the office.

All posts made by visitors are the opinions of the author and do not represent the views of the University. The University will not be held responsible for any content or links posted by visitors to our social media.

Canterbury Christ Church University must remain politically neutral and impartial. It will not normally endorse external campaigns of a political or partisan nature.

The University is committed to Freedom of Speech within the law, but has Community Standards that users must observe.

By posting to our social media accounts you are agreeing to abide by our Community Standards. Under these standards we will not tolerate:

  • foul and abusive language
  • discrimination
  • violence and threats
  • bullying and harassment
  • hateful speech
  • inappropriate graphic content
  • inflammatory comments
  • deliberately misleading or defamatory comments

The University reserves the right to remove any content deemed to breach these standards and will make every effort to do so. This includes blocking visitors indefinitely from posting to the site where there is evidence of systematic abuse of our Community Standards.

We do not allow third party advertising. Any unsolicited advertising posts, including phishing and spam, will also be removed.

We advise all users to familiarise themselves also with each individual social media platform’s own Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
