Our Social Media Policy

Accessing our online groups/forums constitutes your acceptance of these terms and conditions, which take effect immediately on your first use of the group/forum.


IMPORTANT: By accessing and using our online groups/forums you will automatically be taken to have read, understood and accepted this policy. If you do not agree to be bound by this policy, please cease to access our online groups/forums. The administrators for the time being of the online groups/forums associated to the 'Autism Family Support Group Letterkenny' page (hereinafter referred to as the “AFSG”) reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time by posting changes online.

If you fail to observe any of the provisions of this policy, we reserve the right, at our discretion and without notice, to remove or edit any messages you may have left on the page and/or to exclude you (either temporarily or permanently) from the page depending on the nature and severity of your breach.


You are responsible for reviewing regularly information posted online to obtain timely notice of such changes. Your continued use of this social media group after changes are posted constitutes your acceptance of this agreement as modified by the posted changes.


You agree to use this social media group for lawful purposes, and in a manner that does not infringe the rights of, or restrict or inhibit the use and enjoyment of this page by any third party. Such restriction or inhibition includes, without limitation, conduct which is unlawful, or which may harass or cause distress or inconvenience to any person and the transmission of obscene or offensive content or disruption of normal flow of dialogue within this page.


In no event will the AFSG be liable for any damages including, without limitation, indirect or consequential damages, or any damages whatsoever arising from use or loss of use or data whether in action of contract, negligence or other tortious action, arising out of or in connection with the use of the page. The AFSG does not warrant that the functions contained in the material contained in this page will be uninterrupted or error free, that defects will be corrected, or that this page or the server that makes it available are free of viruses or bugs or represents the full functionality, accuracy, and reliability of the materials.


The AFSG reserves the right to make changes to or take down our online groups/forums or remove or alter any content at any time without notice. Views may differ on topics in this group. We endeavour to promote an atmosphere of tolerance and mutual respect.  If you disagree with a post you are expected to express your views in a respectful manner.  Please refrain from the use of language that may offend.


The AFSG accept no liability or responsibility whatsoever for any comments posted on our online groups/forums which are owned by its author.  However, any post which is considered by the AFSG to be defamatory or offensive will be removed immediately at the AFSG’s discretion without consultation with the author.

You should not directly or indirectly share any information posted by other members under any circumstances. You should not discuss personal opinions expressed here whether they may seem to be private or not. Please be aware that others may see this as a safe and private environment and may share more than they would in a more public forum. We expect that you will use your own discretion in what you are comfortable sharing about yourself, your family, sensitive topics and opinions that you may not share openly elsewhere. No warranty can be given by the AFSG that there will be no breach of privacy and the AFSG accept no liability for any breaches which may occur in this regard.

Personal pictures shared to the online group/forum are considered private and should not be downloaded or shared elsewhere. As you share pictures, keep in mind that they are accessible to all group members until deleted. Again, no warranty can be given by the AFSG that there will be no breach of privacy and the AFSG accept no liability for any breaches which may occur in this regard.

The documents available to members through our online groups/forums are private. If you wish to make use of this information elsewhere please ask permission of the AFSG. Be aware that documents that you contribute to can potentially be copied and shared elsewhere by any member.

The AFSG will endeavour to vet all members but as with any online group/forum, it is always possible that a member is not who they seem to be. Please take any precautions that you would take in any online forum particularly with regard to your safety offline. Exercise extreme caution if you decide to: meet with anyone face to face; share address; give your phone number etc. The AFSG accept no responsibility in this regard.


No direct reference should be made of a third-party in your post unless you have the permission of that third-party.

Any information or advice given in the group is never intended to take the place of consulting an appropriate professional as this is a peer support group.
