Social Media Community Guidelines
Effective date: November 4, 2019
Cohen Veterans Bioscience (“CVB”) is a national, nonpartisan research 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to fast-tracking the development of diagnostic tests and personalized therapeutics for the millions of veterans and civilians who suffer the devastating effects of trauma-related and other brain disorders.
CVB manages several social media pages to share information and create a community where people can learn about and discuss issues relevant to brain health.
When you engage, comment or respond to one of our posts, you are also agreeing to our Community Guidelines that follow.
On our social media pages, you may read comments posted by the general public that are not posted by us. The content of these comments that you may see on our channels does not necessarily reflect our views. The individuals posting these comments are responsible for the content of these posts not CVB.
CVB may post links on our social media platforms to content that is not published by us; CVB is not responsible for the content on any third-party websites.
Please Be Respectful
When engaging with us on social media, CVB asks that you be respectful of all members of our social media communities. CVB encourages comments, questions and feedback, as long as they are communicated with respect for us and others.
Please Stay On Topic
Content that CVB consider to be inappropriate or off-topic is not allowed. Promoting and/or soliciting any third-parties, off-topic initiatives, products or services is not allowed. Profanity, harassment or threatening content or behavior will also not be tolerated. If you wish to contact us about careers, funding or partnership opportunities, please use our website contact form (https://www.cohenveteransbioscience.org/contact/) instead of contacting us through social media.
