Social Media House Rules

Our social pages on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr and Instagram (the “Horseware Social Communities”) have been created with you in mind. We want to show you what we are doing and communicate with you on things that interest you and, at the same time, provide a channel where you can engage and interact with others who have similar interests to you.  That being the case we want everyone to feel comfortable visiting the Horseware Social Communities to discuss sport, sports apparel and sports fashion. This means we monitor and review comments and remove anything that we deem to be inappropriate, offensive or contain external links that we feel might cause offense to other users. Comments left by others do not represent our opinions.

A list of things that we consider to be in breach of our house rules for the Horseware Social Communities includes, without limitation:

  • Any comments which we consider threatening, harassing, abusive, violent, inciting violence or otherwise inflammatory to others (including other social media users) will be removed and users may be banned.
  • Any posts that are seen to be encouraging or may encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offence will be removed and users may be banned.
  • Any comments that are discriminatory, racist, sexually explicit, vulgar, or offensive to others (including other social media users) will be removed and users may be banned.
  • Any comments that contain unlawful content or might encourage unlawful behavior will be removed and users may be banned.
  • Any comments that included promotional information, including links to third parties or their products or services may be removed.
  • Any comments that contain political or religious activism or sectarian language will be removed.
  • Any content that infringes or may infringe third party intellectual property, privacy, or publicity rights will be removed.
  • Any content, comments or posts that are defamatory will be removed.
  • False, fraudulent, or misleading comments may be removed.
  • Any content that we consider to be spam, corrupt or may contains viruses that will be harmful to other users devices will be removed.

The Horseware Social Communities are third party websites and therefore, in addition to the guidelines above, are subject to our policy on Third Party Sites.
