Social Media Policy
Social Media Participation Guidelines
On social media, we are open; we want our followers and/or consumers to share, show and exchange information, opinions and suggestions across the various platforms. And to keep everything running smoothly, we have some participation rules that apply to all of our social network accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube):
1. Being of legal age is mandatory. No exceptions!
2. Disrespectful behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated. SURF BREWING will not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia or any other form of discourse or contribution that can be interpreted as such. After all, social networks are designed for interacting, making friends and having a good time, aren’t they?
3. When posting copyrighted information without the permission of the author, the source URL must be included.
4. We hate spam and illegal content of any kind.
5. We recommend that users do not post personal details like physical or electronic addresses, telephone numbers, bank account details, etc. on any of SURF BREWING social media profiles.
6. If you share your SURF BREWING moment with us or a visit to a spot from our #SurfBrewingGuide, remember that your content cannot be related to:
- underage people
- activities that associate beer with driving
- activities related to the excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages
- activities related to tobacco or the consumption of drugs
SURF BREWING reserves the right to delete any messages that do not comply with the respect and legal guidelines applicable to social media content. All content deemed offensive and/or threatening will be deleted to the extent that the platform allows.
SURF BREWING waives any responsibility associated with the breach of these participation guidelines by the users, and any consequences that may arise from said breach.
