  • Use common sense: Whenever you are unsure as to whether or not the content you wish to share is appropriate, seek advice from others before doing so or refrain from sharing the content to be on the safe side
  • Protecting your privacy: Be smart about protecting yourself and your privacy. When posting content online there is potential for that content to become publicly available through a variety of means, even if it was intended to be shared privately. Therefore, you should refrain from posting any content online that you would not be happy for anyone to see, even if you feel confident that a particular individual would never see it.
  • Honesty Your honesty—or dishonesty—may be quickly noticed in the social media environment. Do not say anything that is dishonest, untrue or misleading. If you are unsure, check the source and the facts 6 before uploading or posting anything.
  • Track Back: The web is not anonymous. You should assume that all information posted online can be traced back to you. You are accountable for your actions both on and offline, including the information you post via your personal social media accounts.
  • Complying with applicable laws: Do not post or link to content that contains illegal or indecent content, including defamatory, vilifying or misleading and deceptive content.
  • You must not post any material that is offensive, harassing, discriminatory, embarrassing, intimidating, sexually explicit, bullying, hateful, racist, sexist or otherwise inappropriate.
  • Avoiding controversial issues: Within the scope of your authorization by PWL, if you see misrepresentations made about PWL in the media, you may point that out to the relevant authority. Always do so with respect and with the facts. If you speak about others, make sure what you say is based on fact and does not discredit or belittle that party.
  • Any articles in regards to the format of the league should be approved by PWL Management before release.
