Social Media Policy

Linlithgow Amateur Musical Productions incorporating LAMP Children's Theatre operates on a number of social media platforms - FacebookTwitterInstagram and YouTube.  We want to create virtual spaces where you can engage with LAMP and with fellow musical theatre lovers and encourage feedback and comment. To make sure everyone feels welcome on our pages, we've put together a set of house rules to guide people using these platforms.

 

We welcome your opinions both positive and negative. We understand that you may not always necessarily agree with us or other users. However, when stating your point please do not abuse, use offensive language or go off topic to us or to other people on our page.

 

LAMP SOCIAL MEDIA HOUSE RULES: 

 

Your content is public

Once your comment is online it is in the public domain - everyone with internet access can read it. Don't forget that you are legally responsible for what you submit.

 

Language and relevance

Do not use swear words or offensive language. Keep your submissions relevant to the story or topic. If you have a question about any content removed, contact us at [email protected]

 

Trolling

Spamming us repetitively with the same point – even after we’ve tried to engage with you and address your issues - deters other followers from engaging with us. This behaviour will not be tolerated.

 

Report abuse

If you are offended by a user’s post, please report it to Facebook/Twitter. If you would like it removed by us, please contact us at [email protected]

 

No libel or other abuse

You must not make or encourage comments which are:

  • defamatory, false or misleading;
  • insulting, threatening or abusive
  • obscene or of a sexual nature
  • offensive, racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic or discriminatory against any religions or other groups.

 

Confidentiality

Please respect people's privacy. You are not allowed to submit confidential or private information. For example, you must not upload the telephone number, email address or any other contact details of any other person.

 

No advertising

Any postings on our Facebook wall must be relevant to LAMP or LAMP Children's Theatre or in response to material we have posted. Postings that advertise a commercial service or product will be removed. Please contact us directly if you’d like us to consider including details of non-LAMP or LAMP Children's Theatre events at [email protected]

 

Removal of content, warnings and suspensions

If you breach any of the above rules we will use the following steps:

  1. LAMP will always try to resolve the issue first personally with anyone who violates the house rules
  2. If LAMP needs to moderate or delete posts, we will always explain our reasons for doing so, pointing to the relevant section of the house rules
  3. LAMP reserves the right to ban followers from our pages for serious violations or repeat violations of the house rules

 

We want the LAMP’s social media pages to be an open, welcoming and constructive space. We really don’t want to have to remove any content so please do keep in the spirit of our pages. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us at any time.
