Social media terms and conditions
Read our social media policy which sets out our terms for your use of Zenad Social Platform.
We have created some Terms and Conditions Rules which set out the terms for your use of Zenad Social Platform which currently spans comments on https://zenad.site, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Google+.
Please read the following Rules carefully as they provide information about using the Zenad Social Platform in a way that is respectful and lawful. By using or submitting material to the Zenad Social Platform you agree that have read, understood, accept and agree to abide by these Rules.
The terms, conditions and policies that apply to specific social networks, such as Facebook or Twitter also apply to the Zenad Social Platform. We recommend that you familiarise yourself with those terms and conditions before participating in the Zenad Social Platform and we disclaim any liability associated with your use of those services, or for your failure to view or comply with their terms, conditions and policies. When there is a conflict between these Rules and the terms and conditions of the relevant social media channels, the social media channels’ terms and conditions will prevail.
Moderation of the community
We strive to create dialogue with users of our community and encourage you to share content via the Zenad Social Platform in accordance with these Rules.
