Listed below are the principles that a social page (e.g. a Facebook page) must respect. The Netiquettes in question must appear on the page for the purpose of regulating and helping both the Company and users to correctly take advantage of the possibilities offered by social media support services.

The page in question was created to promote the Company’s work and give the community the opportunity to voice its opinion and be updated on the Company’s initiatives and the latest news. Any experience that has been gained and any constructive criticisms are important and the page’s administrators will try to help users in the best manner possible in every situation whatsoever. The Company reserves the right to view all the comments and moderate in the most appropriate manner possible those comments that are deemed to be inappropriate, offensive or irrelevant to the topics dealt with on the page in question. It requires originality and the sharing of videos, links, photographs and texts to which the rights are held.
Any comments and/or questions regarding the Company will be met with timely answers. It should, however, be noted that finding all the correct information sometimes requires a particular commitment and dedication.
Adequate and non-offensive language must be used. Unseemly and discriminatory statements regarding ideas, sex, race, religion and messaging that does not respect the beliefs, opinions and passions of others will be removed.

Should these rules not be observed, the content may be removed and, in the most serious cases, the user can be reported and banned from the fan page.
