Community guidelines

Our social media channels are places where our communities can engage with us about life at Massey.

We have guidelines to make sure we foster healthy social communities. Please be respectful of others. We encourage constructive conversation but content must be appropriate and audience friendly.

Content posted by our community members does not reflect the view of Massey, our employees or our affiliates. Links on our social media channels may go to third party websites and we are not responsible for the content on those sites.

We have the right to remove (without warning) any content posted to our social media channels which:

  • is in violation of the platform’s terms and conditions
  • is in violation of any New Zealand legislation
  • contains harassment, bullying, violence, threats or intimidation
  • links to essay writing services or other services encouraging academic misconduct
  • is spam or similar messages posted by the same accounts multiple times
  • is in violation of someone’s privacy or the intellectual property right of another
  • is in violation of any copyright, image or trademark laws
  • is fraudulent, deceptive or misleading (including content from fake profiles)
  • includes solicitation such as selling goods or services, advertising a business, or requesting community support without our endorsement, including external surveys and petitions, for example `Sign my petition', `Win a free iPad', `Like our Page'
  • is otherwise offensive or inappropriate.

If you offend you may be banned from contributing to our social media channels depending on the severity and impact of the content. We accept no liability for any loss arising out of or in connection with any such removal.

Academic freedom is a core value of Massey. We actively promote and uphold the right of academics to offer informed views and opinions in their areas of expertise. To best represent our entire community and preserve this academic freedom, our social media accounts will not typically take a position on academic discussions.
