This social media policy applies to platforms including, but not limited to:
Online multiplayer gaming platforms (e.g. World of Warcraft, Second life, Xbox Live, etc)
Online voting or polls
Public and private online forums and discussion boards
Any other online technologies that allow individual users to upload and share content.
This policy is applicable when using social media as:
an officially designated individual representing Super Performance Centre on social media; and
If you are posting content on social media in relation to Super Performance Centre that might affect Super Performance Centre’s business, products, services, events, sponsors, members or reputation.
NOTE: This policy does not apply to the personal use of social media where it is not related to or there is no reference to Super Performance Centre or its business, competitions, teams, participants, products, services, events, sponsors, members or reputation. However, any misuse by you of social media in a manner that does not directly refer to Super Performance Centre may still be regulated by other policies, rules or regulations of Super Performance Centre.
Using social media in an official capacity
You must be authorised by Super Performance Centre Director before engaging in social media as a representative of.
To become authorised to represent Super Performance Centre in an official capacity, you must have written authorisation from Director of Super Performance Centre.
As a part of Super Performance Centre’s community you are an extension of the Super Performance Centre brand.
As such, the boundaries between when you are representing yourself and when you are representing Super Performance Centre can often be blurred. This becomes even more of an issue as you increase your profile or position with Super Performance Centre. Therefore it is important that you represent both yourself and Super Performance Centre appropriately online at all times.
You must adhere to the following guidelines when using social media related to Super Performance Centre 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 before doing so or refrain from sharing the content to be on the safe side.
When using social media, the lines between public and private, personal and professional, may be blurred. Remember, you are an ambassador for Super Performance Centre.
Protecting your privacy
Be smart about protecting yourself and your privacy.
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. Super Performance Centre 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 who you are and identify any affiliations you have.
If you have a vested interest in something you are discussing, point it out. If you make an endorsement or recommendation about something you are affiliated with, or have a close relationship with, you must disclose that affiliation.
The web is not anonymous. You should assume that all information posted online can be traced back to you. You are accountable for your actions both on and offline, including the information you post via your personal social media accounts.
Use of disclaimers
Wherever practical, include a prominent disclaimer stating who you work for or are affiliated with (e.g. member of Super Performance Centre) and that anything you publish is your personal opinion and that you are not speaking officially. This is good practice and is encouraged, but don’t count on it to avoid trouble -– it may not have legal effect.
If you are an employee of Super Performance Centre you must ensure that your personal use of social media does not interfere with your work commitments or productivity.
Respect confidentiality and sensitivity
When using social media, you must maintain the privacy of Super Performance Centre’s confidential information. This includes information that is not publically accessible, widely known, or not expected to be shared outside of Super Performance Centre.
Remember, if you are online, you are on the record—much of the content posted online is public and searchable.
Within the scope of your authorisation by Super Performance Centre, it is perfectly acceptable to talk about Super Performance Centre and have a dialogue with the community, but it is not okay to publish confidential information of Super Performance Centre. Confidential information includes things such as details about litigation, unreleased product information and unpublished details about our Members or Centre: e.g. team, coaching practices, financial information and trade secrets.
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 Super Performance Centre’s 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 Super Performance Centre’s employees and 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 Super Performance Centre’s values and Anti-Discrimination, Harassment and Bullying Policy.
Avoiding controversial issues
Within the scope of your authorisation by Super Performance Centre, if you see misrepresentations made about Super Performance Centre in the media, you may point that out to the relevant authority in your Centre. Always do so with respect and with the facts. If you speak about others, make sure what you say is based on fact and does not discredit or belittle that party.
Dealing with mistakes
If Super Performance Centre makes an error while posting on social media, be up front about the mistake and address it quickly. If you choose to modify an earlier post, make it clear that you have done so. If someone accuses Super Performance Centre of posting something improper (such as their copyrighted material or a defamatory comment about them), 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 is your responsibility, and failure to abide by these guidelines could put your MEMBERSHIP at risk.
You should always follow the terms and conditions for any third-party sites in which you participate.
