Sandy Spring Bank Social Media Community Guidelines

Sandy Spring Bank maintains an active presence on several social media platforms to inform and learn from our clients and non-clients alike. In order to ensure that these communities remain polite and civil, we have instituted these guidelines for all participants.

1. Our social media accounts are reviewed and moderated daily.

2. In order to maintain exchanges that are informative, interesting, and respectful, Sandy Spring Bank reserves the right to remove any content that violates these guidelines or that, in our sole discretion, we consider objectionable. We review all comments and will not allow comments that are or include:

  • Off Topic  — We will not include comments unless they are related to the subject of the conversation.  If there is something you would like to discuss but don’t see it on our pages, please contact us via direct message on the social media site.
  • Spam – Spam is defined as unnecessary, unwanted, or repetitive content, specifically when focused on selling a product or service or for the purpose of driving traffic to a particular website for gain. Such comments will be deleted.
  • Personal Attacks – We respect your right to disagree, but comments that personally attack others, are disrespectful, contain malicious intent or are not in the spirit of civil conversation will be deleted. 
  • Illegal – Laws that govern the use of copyrights, trade secrets, etc. will be followed.
  • Offensive Language – Comments containing profane language or which are otherwise inappropriate, offensive, racially or socially insensitive, disruptive, harassing or defamatory will be deleted. 
  • Threatened or Actual Litigation – We will not allow comments regarding threatened or actual litigation.

In certain circumstances, we may suspend or block users that violate our community guidelines. When appropriate, we may also report certain violators to the relevant authorities if they violate the law.

3. Comments should be left only in plain text without any HTML formatting.

4. The opinions, statements, and viewpoints expressed by participants on our social media sites, including Sandy Spring Bank employees or partners, do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Sandy Spring Bank or constitute an official position of Sandy Spring Bank.  Sandy Spring Bank is not responsible for views expressed other than our own.

5. We may occasionally post links to third-party sites or share content.  Please note that this does not in any way constitute an official endorsement of the individual, website, or company.

6. Please do not post any of your personal information or account details on our social media sites.  Sandy Spring Bank will never ask you to provide personal information on its social media sites. If you have been approached by someone asking for this information, please notify local authorities, and contact your Sandy Spring Bank banker or our Client Service Center at 800.399.5919.

7. Sandy Spring Bank reserves the right to alter these guidelines at any time in its sole discretion.
