Policies around links, accessibility, commenting and more.
This notice has been written to explain how Moishes interacts with the public on social media
CONTENT AND FREQUENCY
We use our social media accounts as a method of sharing information about our programs,
services and company, and as a communication, marketing, and outreach channel to reach and
engage with our audiences.
Because the servers of social media platforms are managed by a third party, our social media
accounts are subject to downtime that may be out of our control. We accept no responsibility
for platforms downtime.
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
Our social media accounts may post or display links for websites that are not under our control.
These links are provided solely for the convenience of users. Moishes is not responsible for the
information found through these links, nor does it endorse the sites or their content.
FOLLOWING, FAVOURITING, LIKING, POSTING AND SUBSCRIBING
Our decision to “follow,” “favourite”, “subscribe”, “like” or “post” to another social media
account does not imply an endorsement of that account, channel, page or site, and neither does
sharing (re-tweeting, reposting or linking) content from another user.
COMMENTS AND INTERACTION
We love it when you comment or engage with us on social media. Our accounts are monitored
regularly. We do our best to make sure that comments and questions are read and responded
to as soon as possible.
For any matter that is confidential, or too complicated for posting to the public, please contact
us by calling 1 514-360-4221 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although we will work hard to help you, we cannot guarantee that we will understand your
question completely or answer it accurately. By contacting us through a social media site, you
acknowledge that any response we provide to you through the same site:

We ask that your comments be relevant and respectful. We reserve the right to delete
comments that violate this notice, and the user may be blocked and reported to prevent further

In short, please be respectful and make sure that your comments are relevant to where they are
posted. The views of users commenting on our social media accounts do not represent the
views of Moishes.
