Asante social media guideline
Community participation is welcomed on Asante-sponsored sites, which may include blogs, online feedback forms or social media sites, including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. In adherence to Asante corporate values, we request that all material (comments, video, pictures and other posted content: "Material") be of a courteous and respectful nature. Material that could be interpreted as profane, obscene, offensive, sexually explicit, inappropriate, inflammatory or otherwise objectionable is not acceptable. These online venues often create opportunities to debate, discuss or profess one's opinion of an issue; while encouraged, users are to engage in such exchanges with mutual respect for others' opinions.
For the privacy of users and their families, please be advised that all postings to Asante-sponsored sites will be publicly available on the internet and therefore publicly accessible without limitation or protection of any kind.
