Wilmington Trust Social Media Terms of Use

Please carefully read this Wilmington Trust (“we,” “our” or “us”) Social Media Terms of Use (“Terms of Use”). This Social Media Terms of Use governs the use of our social media-based pages, websites, accounts, and applications (or collectively, our "Sites") that belong to, or are managed by certain Wilmington Trust affiliates and the use of any information, software, function, graphics, original thought/opinion, articles, photos, images and any other material contained therein (collectively referred to as “Content”). Through these Sites, we and others may share, interact with, promote and/or create various types of Content and discuss topics of interest.

By using or accessing our Sites and any Content, you agree to be bound by this Social Media Terms of Use (and any changes that we may publish from time to time), all applicable laws and regulations, and the terms of use of any third parties that host our Sites (such as LinkedIn, Inc.). If you do not agree with this Social Media Terms of Use, do not use or access our Sites or any Content. This Social Media Terms of Use is subject to change at any time and from time to time, without notice.

Content. The Content provided on our Sites is intended as general information only and is not intended to provide specific investment, legal, tax or accounting advice for any individual or entity. The Content is general in nature and provided for current interest and information purposes only. It is not, nor should it be construed as, an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy or recommend any security. Status updates are illustrative only and are not a recommendation for any particular investment. Information, opinions and views expressed or otherwise included in the Content is subject to change at any time. Wilmington Trust does not represent or warrant that the information on our Sites is accurate, complete, reliable, useful, timely or current. You read all Content at your own risk. Do not rely on the information or advice posted on any of our Sites without consulting with your own professional advisor.

Endorsements. We do not allow, nor will permit any endorsements or testimonials. Our use of the “like” function pertains only to a comment or post we “like;” it is not an endorsement of the individual or entity who posted the content. If we “like” another page, share or otherwise re-post another user's content, such an action does not constitute an endorsement.

Links to Third Party Sites in Posts on our Site. We may include or establish third-party links in our Content as a convenience to you. Our posting of such links is provided as a convenience only, and the inclusion of any link is not an endorsement by us of the linked site. You access such links (which are not under our control) at your own risk. We have not investigated, verified, monitored or tested the accuracy, reliability or completeness of any information, data, opinions, advice, statements, software, products or services found on or contained in any linked site and we do not have any obligation to do so. We make no representations whatsoever with respect to any linked site, nor are we responsible for the contents, policies or terms of use of such linked site.

LinkedIn and Other Third Party Social Media. We are not affiliated with LinkedIn, Inc. or other third party social media sites (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, etc.). If you use LinkedIn or any other social media sites, you do so at your own risk. We are not responsible for and do not endorse any content, advertising, products, advice, opinions, recommendations, terms of use or policies, or other materials on or available from LinkedIn or any other third party social media site. We are not responsible for comments made or content posted or made available by any users of LinkedIn or other third party social media sites. When you use any third party social media sites, including LinkedIn, you must comply with all of that third party's policies and procedures while using the relevant platform or service and you are subject to whatever actions such third party may elect to take in order to enforce its policies and procedures.

Additional Information. We reserve all rights relating to our Sites and Content, including but not limited to: (i) adding, removing, or modifying any content, (ii) blocking disruptive users; (iii) discontinuing any of our social media channels at any time; and (iv) blocking any user whose posts constitute testimonials, advice, recommendations, or advertisements for securities, products or services, content that is promotional in nature or for any reason as we determine. We reserve the right to remove any post or hyperlink from our Sites for any reason without notice. We are not the source of all posts on our Sites and thus cannot be responsible for any views expressed.

Specific Account Information/Communication. Please do not share any personal information or details about you or any account that you may have with us through the Sites. Do not submit any instructions concerning any Wilmington Trust account through the Sites or any other third party social media site.

User Conduct and License Grant. You agree not to use, nor will you permit anyone to use, the Site or Content for, or to further, any unlawful, fraudulent, illegal, harassing or unauthorized purpose. When you use our Sites, we expect you to be courteous and keep the content of your post on topic within the conversation of the wall post in which you have chosen to participate. Your content should never include or be used to perpetrate any of the following:

  • negative or defamatory comments, discriminatory content, or personal attacks
