Please read carefully, as this contains information about sharing and contributing content, and how we’ll respond to anything we deem abusive, unsuitable or derogatory.

Moderation

Please be respectful to others including our colleagues monitoring and responding to inquiries on our social media pages. Any contribution deemed offensive or inappropriate will be removed. Examples may include:

  • Threats or personal attacks - abusive, defamatory, derogatory, or inflammatory language; or stalking or harassment of any individual, entity or organization
  • Discriminatory or hate speech of any kind
  • Profane, obscene, disruptive, off topic, excessive or repetitive (trolling) postings
  • False, inaccurate, or misleading content
  • Spam or fraudster behaviors

Barclays Bank US reserves the right to ban any user from our social media pages without prior written notice or consent for violations of our social media guidelines.
