Social Media Legal Disclaimer
WYFRS will endeavour to engage in a two way conversation using social media (i.e. Facebook and Twitter), but we have set out some brief guidelines to ensure that these conversations are appropriate.
• We shall attempt to respond to postings appropriately, but we are unable to engage in dialogue on a 24/7 basis. Priority will be given to responding to issues during office hours.
• We will NOT accept or tolerate offensive or discriminatory language, which may cause harassment, alarm or distress. This includes comments which are perceived as racist or homophobic. If they are posted on media platforms where we have editorial control, they shall be challenged and removed.

As previously mentioned, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to read everything marked for our attention, but we will endeavour to ensure any helpful suggestions are passed to the relevant people and responded to where possible.
