Acceptable Use Policy

Capability Scotland has a few social media channels, which we invite the public to join us on.

Most online communities have their own rules and guidelines, which we will always follow. We reserve the right to remove any contributions that break the rules or guidelines of the relevant community, or any of the following:

  • Be civil, tasteful and relevant
  • Do not post messages that are unlawful, libellous, harassing, defamatory, abusive, threatening, harmful, obscene, profane, sexually oriented or racially offensive
  • Do not swear
  • Do not post content copied from elsewhere, for which you do not own the copyright.
  • Do not post the same message, or very similar messages, more than once (also called "spamming")
  • Do not publicise your, or anyone else's, personal information, such as contact details
  • Do not advertise products or services
  • Do not ask us to 'like' you to promote products or services
  • Do not impersonate someone else.

Defamation

Please take care not to make defamatory statements. In law this means a statement that lowers the reputation of a person or organisation in the eyes of a reasonable person. By publishing such a statement we can both get into serious trouble. We will therefore take down any statement that could be deemed to be defamatory.
