Social media policy

Standish may use a number of unaffiliated social media sites to share product and service information, thought leadership materials, news, events, and career information. Social media pages typically are public and can show up in search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing. Because our social media sites are public and anyone with an account can engage with us, we cannot be responsible for views expressed other than our own.

We reserve the right to prohibit posting on our social media pages, as well as the right to delete or edit any posted content or material for any reason and without notice. Any posting on these pages is subject to our policies of usage, as we may change from time to time. We prohibit postings about securities products, investment recommendations, investment product performance, and client testimonials. In addition, we prohibit the posting of offensive, derogatory, inflammatory or illegal comments and statements.

We reserve the right to block or remove objectionable content and users if possible, in our sole discretion and without notice. Any delay in removing or failure to remove an objectionable posting should not be deemed an endorsement or approval of the posting, and does not preclude us from taking other steps to address objectionable content, particularly where a social media website restricts us from removing content or blocking users. If a follower forwards our posts and adds comments, such comments are the view and responsibility of the follower, and we expressly disclaim any responsibility over such communication.

These social media websites are established and hosted by third parties, and are governed by separate website policies, including terms of use and privacy policies. We are not responsible for the terms or use or privacy policies of such social media websites, and your use of such websites is at your own risk.

Never disclose any financial or personal information on any social media site. Standish will never ask you for your social security number, account information, passwords, PINs, or other personally identifiable information via social media.

Our moderators are online during business hours, 9:00am – 5:00pm EST Monday through Friday (excluding Federal bank holidays). If you have a specific query, please contact socialmedia@standish.com.
