If you choose to share content or to otherwise post information through social media that information may be publicly displayed. Similarly, if you post information on a third-party platform that references WERC, for example, by using a Twitter hashtag associated with WERC in your Tweet), your post may be published on social media in accordance with the terms of that third party. Both WERC and the third party may have access to certain information about you and your use of that social media site. In addition, we may receive information about you if other users of a third-party website give us access to their profiles and you are one of their “connections” or information about you is otherwise accessible through your “connections” web page, profile page, or similar page on a social networking or other third-party website or service.

The information we collect in connection with Social Networking Features is subject to this Privacy Policy. The information collected and stored by the third party remains subject to the third party’s privacy practices, including whether the third party continues to share information with us, the types of information shared, and your choices with regard to what is visible to others on that third-party website or service.

Furthermore, we do not necessarily agree with or endorse every comment that individuals post on our social media sites or about WERC. While we encourage followers to share their thoughts and opinions, we expect that this will be done in a respectful manner. We aim to keep the conversation positive and engaging, and we hope you do as well. Please remember that the Internet is not private, and there is no such thing as a “private” social media site.

We may not see every inappropriate comment right away, and we are trusting in the maturity of our community to ignore personal attacks and negative speech or respond politely. Repeated violations of this policy may cause the author to be blocked from WERC’s social media profiles.

Anyone who posts on our social media sites understands that to the fullest extent permitted by law, WERC will not be liable to anyone for any indirect, incidental, consequential, special or punitive damages due to content.
