The Town of Tecumseh (Town) maintains several social media sites including Facebook and Twitter.

For the most part, comments and messages posted to the Town's official social networking sites are considered transitory records and will not be kept as a permanent record by the Town. In the event that comments and messages are transferred for use on other websites or communication media, users acknowledge and consent by their use of the Town's social networking sites that their comments or messages may become part of the public record and used in official Town documentation. It is in the discretion of the Town which comments will be archived or used.

It is not the intent of the Town to collect any personal information when users participate on its social media websites other than what is volunteered to the Town. Comments and messages collected for the public record using social media will be treated like any other form of communication received by the Town.

The Town may monitor social networking content for factuality and appropriateness and will make reasonable efforts to ensure that content it posts is accurate at the time of posting. However, it is in the nature of social networking communications that accuracy and timeliness are not guaranteed and may not be reliable; as such, the user acknowledges that the Town of Tecumseh makes no such guarantees. As well, the Town is not responsible for the authenticity or suitability of content posted to social networking sites by others. Posted comments and images do not necessarily represent the views of the Town.

The Town cannot and does not guarantee your privacy on third-party social networking websites as users are subject to the terms and conditions of the specific application. Users should review and agree to the third-party terms and conditions prior to participating.

The Town will not be responsible for any losses or damages any user may suffer as a result of using third-party social networking websites; users participate at their own risk, for their own benefit and in so doing accept that they have no right of action against the Town of Tecumseh related to such use.

The Town reserves the right to edit and/or modify comments and posts that contain content threats, off topic remarks and comments, violations against the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, discriminatory language, expletive language, campaigning, partisan messaging or commercial advertisements or other material deemed inappropriate.
