Social Media Guidelines

Thank you for interacting with the extended Roswell Park network on our various social media communities. These communities include all Roswell Park created or sponsored online networks, including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, blogs and discussion forums.  We encourage you to join the discussion and share your comments, but please remember that anything you post is public and viewable by anyone in the world.

To help you get the most positive experience on our social networks, RPCI has established the following guidelines:

  • Be respectful. We expect a certain level of civility and that you will refrain from use of profanity or abusive language.
  • RPCI reserves the right to remove any comments that we find unlawful, inaccurate, abusive, soliciting or objectionable in any other way.
  • Abide by the law. Respect the guidelines of any third-party websites (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, etc.). RPCI is not responsible for these guidelines or their enforcement.
  • Protect your own privacy. Before sharing any personal information, please carefully consider whether you want that information to be public.
  • By participating with Roswell Park Cancer Institute in social networking communities, you agree to indemnify Roswell Park Cancer Institute against any damages, losses, liabilities, judgments, costs or expenses arising out of a claim by a third party relating to any posts you have made.
