SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY
Social media refers to any online tools or functions that allow people to communicate and/or share content via the internet.
This social media policy applies to platforms including, but not limited to:
Video and photo sharing websites or apps (e.g. YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram, Flickr, Vine, etc) This policy is applicable when using social media as:
MADC Guidelines to Media Competition
You must adhere to the following guidelines when using social media related to MAD committee or its business, products, competitions, teams, participants, services, events, sponsors, members or reputation.
- Use common sense
Whenever you are unsure as to whether or not the content you wish to share is appropriate, seek advice from others or a MAD committee member before doing so or refrain from sharing the content to be on the safe side.
When posting content online there is potential for that content to become publicly available through a variety of means, even if it was intended to be shared privately. Therefore, you should refrain from posting any content online that you would not be happy for anyone to see, even if you feel confident that a particular individual would never see it.
Where possible, privacy settings on social media platforms should be set to limit access. You should also be cautious about disclosing your personal details.
Your honesty—or dishonesty—may be quickly noticed in the social media environment. Do not say anything that is dishonest, untrue or misleading. If you are unsure, check the source and the facts before uploading or posting anything. MADC recommends erring on the side of caution – if in doubt, do not post or upload.
Do not post anonymously, using pseudonyms or false screen names. Be transparent and honest. Use your real name, be clear about what you are posting.
The web is not anonymous. All information posted online can be traced back to you. You are accountable for your actions both on and offline. MADC will not be responsible for any footage that you have not received permission from.
When using social media you should be considerate to others and should not post information when you have been asked not to, or where consent has not been sought and given. You must also remove information about another person if that person asks you to do so.
Permission should always be sought if the use or publication of information is not incidental, but directly related to an individual. This is particularly relevant to publishing any information regarding minors. In such circumstances, parental or guardian consent is mandatory.
- Gaining permission when publishing a person’s identifiable image
You must obtain express permission from an individual to use a direct, clearly identifiable image of that person.
You should also refrain from posting any information or photos of a sensitive nature. This could include accidents, incidents or controversial behaviour.
In every instance, you need to have consent of the owner of copyright in the image.
- Complying with applicable laws
Do not post or link to content that contains illegal or indecent content, including defamatory, vilifying or misleading and deceptive content.
- Abiding by copyright laws
It is critical that you comply with the laws governing copyright in relation to material owned by others and MADC own copyrights and brands.
You should never quote or use more than short excerpts of someone else’s work, and you should always attribute such work to the original author/source. It is good practice to link to others’ work rather than reproduce it.
- Discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying
The public in general, and MAD committee members, reflect a diverse set of customs, values and points of view.
You must not post any material that is offensive, harassing, discriminatory, embarrassing, intimidating, sexually explicit, bullying, hateful, racist, sexist or otherwise inappropriate.
When using social media you may also be bound by values and Anti-Discrimination, Harassment and Bullying Policy by the “Australian Government Department of Communications Social Media Public Policy”
If you speak/Write about others, make sure what you say is based on fact and does not discredit or belittle that party.
- Dealing with mistakes
If you make an error while posting on social media, please be up front about the mistake and address it quickly by contacting MADC public relations officer-Lisa Niglia 0428266310 . If you choose to modify an earlier post, make it clear that you have done so. MADC will take no responsibility if something improper has been posted (such as their copyrighted material or a defamatory comment about them) Please address it promptly and appropriately and if necessary, seek legal advice.
- Conscientious behaviour and awareness of the consequences
Keep in mind that what you write/post/photograph is your responsibility, and failure to abide by these guidelines you will be removed from the competition. Anything that the MADC deem to be unfit and inappropriate will also be removed from social media.
Enjoy filming or photographing and Love where you live
