You acknowledge that any Content submitted by you may be handled by Company on a non-confidential basis.

SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY
From time-to-time and on certain websites owned by Company or third parties (e.g., Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest), Company may establish a social media page (the “Page”) dedicated to one or more of its brands. The Page is intended to provide a place for Company’s community to exchange information and ideas. Your use of the Page is governed by this Section of the Terms & Conditions, the relevant website owner’s Terms of Use and all applicable laws, including, without limitation, intellectual property laws and privacy laws. You are responsible for all content you disseminate or transmit through or by means of the Page.

Company and its designees will have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to edit, refuse, remove, or move any content that is available via the Page or to refuse access to the Page at any time and for any reason without notification. Without limiting the foregoing, Company and its designees will have the right to remove any content that Company considers, in its sole discretion, objectionable, whether for legal or for other reasons. In particular, Company reserves the right to remove from the Page any content that: (1) appears to violate the website’s Terms of Use or any other policies or terms that govern use of the site or any applicable laws; (2) is off-topic, in bad taste, disrespectful or contains offensive language; (3) disrupts the normal flow of dialogue or otherwise negatively affects other users’ ability to engage in real-time exchanges; (4) impersonates any person or entity; falsely states or otherwise misrepresents your affiliation with any person or entity; intentionally omits, deletes, forges or misrepresents transmission information; or otherwise manipulates identifiers to disguise the origin of any content transmitted through the Page; (5) name-calls, insults, taunts, ridicules, mocks, bullies, electronically stalks or otherwise harasses another Page user or attacks the character or damages or has the potential to damage the reputation of another user; or (6) contains the first and last name or any other identifying information of any individual, including without limitation, where they work or the exact address where they live.

Users who cause disruption are not welcome on the Page. If Company believes you are posting with the intent to cause disruption or harm, your actions may result in a warning, a suspension, or a permanent ban from participation in the Page. Banning is done at Company’s discretion and is the result of our sole judgment of a user’s demonstrated inability or disinclination to follow any of the website’s terms and other policies that govern the site. Company will not be liable to you or any third party for the consequences of any termination of your use of or access to the Page.

Company is free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in the content you post to the Page, whether you restrict its distribution or not, for any purpose whatsoever, including, but not limited to, developing, manufacturing and marketing products using such information, without compensation or any other obligations to anyone, including yourself.

The Page may contain the opinions and views of other users, which Company does not endorse and for which Company is not responsible.
