Social media code of conduct
Avoid posting any personal information. Any posts that include an email address, phone number, address or other personal information will be removed.
Stay on topic
We welcome debate and discussion, but please keep comments relevant to the original post, and don’t repeat the same message across multiple unrelated posts. Off-topic posts or comments are likely to be removed.
Please avoid posting any hateful, defamatory, obscene, discriminatory or harassing comments, images or videos, or anything that could be deemed offensive to others. Such comments and posts will be removed, and will most likely result in you being banned or blocked.
Don’t advertise or self-promote
Avoid making posts or comments that serve as advertisements for yourself or others. We’ll remove any links, images, messages, and so on that advertise or promote the goods or services of individuals, businesses or causes and such postings will most likely result in you being banned or blocked.
Don’t infringe intellectual property
Avoid posting anything that isn’t your original creative content or that you don’t have a lawful right to post. Infringed branded logos, graphics, copyrighted text, images or videos that come to our attention will be removed, and you risk being banned or blocked.

We aim to frequently monitor our social media platforms. Our core office hours are between 09.00 and 17.00, Monday to Friday, excluding UK bank holidays. We aim to respond to all enquiries as quickly as possible, but please note that some enquiries may take longer to resolve.
