King's College London Alumni Social Media & Online Events Comment Policy

Our social media channels and online events are a place for King’s College London alumni to connect, comment and keep in touch with the latest developments at the university. We want it to build communities that are built on honest thought, respect, inclusivity and a shared connection to King’s College London. 

The King’s Alumni Office is here for our former students and staff. Whilst we actively encourage this community to get involved by posting to our profiles and taking part in discussions, we do have some basic rules. 

The King’s Alumni Office will not accept - or remove - content if: 

  • it is irrelevant to the original post 
  • it is judged to be spam
  • it is obscene or disrespectful
  • it is abusive or threatening to the King’s alumni community or individuals within it
  • it contains defamatory information about individuals
  • it distributes false and/or misleading information
  • it advertises or promotes products and/or services
  • repeats previous posts
  • is a breach of copyright
  • is an abuse of other people’s privacy

Social Media

We may delete comments on our social media channels in accordance with our policy and the terms of individual social media platforms (direct links are included below).

Where this happens, we will notify users privately of this matter and refer them to this policy. If an individual’s disruptive behaviour persists, then we may block that user from the page or profile and may report that user to the necessary authorities if deemed appropriate. 

You are welcome to contact us through our channels or by emailing - though please be aware we are unable to endorse external campaigns on our channels.

King's Connect Profile Policy

The above social media policy applies on our mentoring and benefit platform King’s Connect. In addition, we require users to use their true identity and appropriate imagery for their profiles. We reserve the right to suspend users who do not uphold this policy until they have updated their details or to ban users if deemed proportionate.

Online Events

We ask that all event attendees provide their name when submitting questions or comments. Anonymous remarks may be ignored or dismissed. 

The Alumni Office and event speakers have final discretion on which audience comments are discussed during the event. Inappropriate remarks may be ignored or removed from the view of other event attendees.   

King’s is committed to being an environment free from prejudice and discrimination. Further information can be found in the university’s Equality, Diversion and Inclusion and Bullying and Harassment policies.  

These guidelines are in place to ensure an inclusive, respectful environment for all King’s alumni online. 

If there are any particular concerns about interactions on our social media channels or how this policy is being managed please email:  

All the best,  

The King’s Alumni Office
