You will be held directly liable and subject to any legal ramifications;that you do not have the necessary rights or licences to post or would violate any law or privacy of an individual/organisation;that would be deemed to be a solicitation, spam or authorised advertising for products and/or services;that would be deemed personal information (e.g. contact details etc.);posts that contain long embedded URLs/Links, code, are completely off-topic, consist of “Shouting” (CAPITAL LETTERS ONLY); orincluding the E-Mail addresses used to register and use our services which are not published anywhere on the site or any sub-site.From use of the Lightful platform (Our Product) there is an option for clients to “Broadcast Externally”; this essentially means inviting individuals that may not be registered on the platform to join the platform or take an action of reposting a social media message on a client’s behalf. The individual that initiates the “Broadcast” will ensure they have consent to contact or share material with those individuals. Lightful will need to ensure the individuals are presented with chance to opt-in (Re-consent) to future Lightful Broadcasts or further communications, whilst giving them a chance to opt-out. It is critical that the clients who are doing the broadcasting have gained consent to do so.
Lightful is unable to enforce complete moderation of the communities site and therefore relies on self-moderation to take place. If you suspect some-one is in breach of the above, then please contact:
