  • infringe upon intellectual property or proprietary rights
  • are racist, hateful, sexist, homophobic or defamatory, or contain or refer to obscenity or pornography
  • are threatening, violent, intimidating or harassing
  • are contrary to any Canadian federal, provincial or territorial laws
  • constitute impersonation, advertising or spam
  • encourage or incite criminal activity
  • are written in a language other than English or French
  • otherwise violate the standards in this policy

In short, be respectful and make sure that your comments are relevant to the section where they are posted. If you have any questions about this policy or how it is applied, please contact us.

THE SALVATION ARMY ARCHIVES reserve the right to report users and/or their comments and contributions to third-party social media service providers, to prevent or remove the posting of content that is contrary to this policy or the terms of service/use of the third-party social media platform.

Following, “liking” and subscribing

The Salvation Army’s decision to follow, “like” or subscribe to another social media account does not imply an endorsement of that account, channel, page or site, and neither does sharing (retweeting, reposting or linking to) content from another user.

Copyright information

THE SALVATION ARMY ARCHIVES retain copyright on all material posted on its social media platforms.

Accessibility

Social media platforms are operated by third-party service providers and not bound by the Salvation Army standards for web accessibility.

If you have difficulty accessing content on our social media accounts, please contact us, and every attempt will be made to solve the problem or to provide the information in a different format.

Privacy

Social media accounts are not Salvation Army websites. They are The Salvation Army’s presence on third-party service providers.
