Social Media Guidelines and Service Agreement
Social media are internet based tools that enable people to create, share, and exchange information, ideas, pictures, and videos in virtual communities and networks. Common social media are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Whatsapp and Skype.
Our Facebook page has been created to provide residents with the opportunity to access information, interact with other residents and provide feedback.
Through Facebook residents will be able to learn about:
- Information about Estuary services
- Other information relevant to our residents, such as local services and healthcare information
- Skills and employment opportunities
- The ways residents can get involved
- Campaigns and competitions
- Resident stories and successes
This important information is supplied by Estuary Housing Association (the Data Controller) registered with the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office), registration number Z5301256.
The main data controller of our Facebook page is Facebook. Therefore users are bound to Facebook's terms and Facebook's privacy notice. Each person wanting to engage with Estuary on Facebook should read their aforementioned statements very carefully; Estuary cannot be held responsible for these notices.
Estuary is not responsible for ensuring data is kept safe on Facebook.
By accessing or using Estuary Housing’s social media sites, you agree to the terms of our Privacy Statement.

Content on our social media is to be kept relevant and constructive.
We reserve the right not to engage with unspecific or repeated negativity.

We would like to remind you of your responsibilities - you must not harass, threaten or abuse any resident, employee, agent or contractor of the Association. Failure to comply may result in action taken against you.
We cannot discuss individual issues on a public forum. If you would like to discuss a private issue, please send us a private Facebook message.
Social media is an additional communication channel where you can receive information from us and you can communicate with us. We offer the same service standards throughout our communication methods. Our social media pages are not a ‘shortcut’ for dealing with enquiries or complaints.
