UD Policies

Be aware that the following policies apply to all social media platforms at use at the University of Delaware.

UD Social Media Sharing Policy

Anything posted on official UD social media sites–by the administrator or followers–should be in good taste and appropriate for all audiences. Photos, comments, videos and stories shared on social media by users may be reused by the University of Delaware on other platforms. UD reserves the right to delete comments that are deemed by the page administrators as inappropriate. These comments include but are not limited to political endorsements or banter; outside links; mudslinging or defamation; advertisements and promotions of any sort; or SPAM. UD’s student policy on Responsible Computing as well as the Policy for Responsible Computing at the University of Delaware apply.

Email socialmedia@udel.edu with any questions.

Note: Do not delete comments simply because they are negative. If appropriate, contact the commenter offline to discuss.

You participate in the University of Delaware's social media accounts at your own risk, taking personal responsibility for your comments, your user name, and any information provided. Please do not post personal information such as phone numbers and addresses. Comments advocating illegal activity or violating copyrights or trademarks are prohibited.

Any pictures or material submitted for inclusion in Pinterest may be reproduced and distributed in a manner outside of the University of Delaware's control or authorization. Therefore, any material submitted to Pinterest should be original with no expectation that distribution will be limited in any fashion. Submissions and questions should be sent to socialmedia@udel.edu.
