ADF community guidelines

ADF social media channels are a space to continue our work in supporting practices that prevent and minimise the harm caused by alcohol and other drugs.

In order to ensure this is a safe and accommodating place for all users we ask you to adhere to the following guidelines for interacting with our community:

  • Keep it Civil: Please be courteous and respectful at all times. Use respectful language and understand that others may have an opinion or belief that is different from yours.
  • Protect your privacy: Please don’t post personal information that you would not be comfortable sharing with a stranger. We recommend that you don’t post any unnecessary information about yourself or anyone else, such as addresses, email addresses, or phone numbers.
  • Don’t be offensive or resemble a ‘Troll’: Please ensure you do not post remarks that could be considered as racist, sexist, rude, defamatory, obscene, offensive, discriminatory or as attacking others.
  • Keep it legal: Do not post anything that is illegal in any way.
  • Protect copyright: Please do not post material to the page that infringes the intellectual property rights of others.
  • No Spamming: Do not spam our social media channels, or post or upload promotional material.
  • Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn and Twitter have rules too: So please don’t post anything which breaches community standards, found here:

We reserve the right to hide or delete any posts that:

  • Are abusive, offensive, illegal, profane, or incite hatred; or which are defamatory towards a person, entity, belief, or symbol (including using your personal beliefs or religion to invalidate the opinions of others).

  • Sell or promote any goods or services, or other commercial, political or other ventures.
