Social Media Policy

Use of Social Media

New Living Australia uses social media to market its products and services, including without limitation:

  • Facebook;
  • Instagram;
  • Online competitions and promotions;
  • Blogs; and
  • Other interactive features/applications, as determined by New Living Australia.

Where New Living Australia does utilise social media, we will provide clear information to you about intended use of the media, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).

We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any social media links provided on our website, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our website, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.

The use of any of any Social Media linked to our website by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use social Media that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any social media should be made aware of the potential risks to them.

Where we do moderate a type of social media, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
