describes the Social Media Disclosure for our SqueezeNinja.com website.
Social Media Issue
We live in an interesting time when privacy rights are championed alongside an
unprecedented voluntary willingness of people to share their most intimate and
superfluous life details with the world, even in places such as our
SqueezeNinja.com website. While apparently benign on the surface, the
dangers of unrestrained public disclosure of sensitive information is beginning
Key social media players are being sued for unauthorized or abusive use/misuse
of personal information. Failure to protect and warn are likely going to be
focal factors. Lawsuits are filed seeking damages for statements held to be
responsible for people's death or suicide. Bloggers presuming to operate under
an unfettered freedom of speech or greater latitude offered to members of the
press are losing civil cases for defamation, slander, libel, and so on.
As social media rapidly advances to allow more technologically sophisticated and
easy dissemination, the simultaneous fallout of revelation without boundaries is
mounting. Thus, a sober approach to the benefits of social media, while
sidestepping the perils of imprudent disclosure, can facilitate an enjoyable
online experience, without the consequences of excess, in settings such as our
own SqueezeNinja.com website.
Presence/Scope of Social Media
You should assume that social media is in use on our SqueezeNinja.com
website. A simple click of a button to endorse a person, product, or service is
building a cumulative profile about you, which you should always assume can be
discovered by others. Attempting to share a website with someone, whether by
direct press of a button or else by email forwarding facilitated on a website,
you should assume that this may not stop with the intended recipient, and that
this can generate information about you that could be seen by a veritable
infinite number of people. Such a domino effect could initiate right here on our
Something as simple as a blog comment provides the opportunity for knee-jerk
reactions that can become public and may not truly represent a position (at
least in strength or severity) that you might hold after a period of more
reasoned contemplation. You should also note that the ease of accessing one site
through the login credentials of another, or the use of a global login for
access to multiple sites can accumulate a dossier on you and your online
behaviour that may reveal more information to unintended parties than you might
realize or want. Any or all of these features could exist on our
SqueezeNinja.com website at one time or another.
These few examples illustrate some possible ways that social media can exist,
though it is not an exhaustive list and new technologies will render this list
outdated quickly. The objective is to realize the reach of social media, its
widespread presence on websites in various forms (including this website), and
develop a responsible approach to using it.
You should recognize the fact that divulgences made in and on social media
platforms on this website and others are rarely constrained just to you.
Disclosures are commonly made about group matters that necessarily affect and
impact other people. Other disclosures are expressly about third parties,
sometimes with little discretion. What can appear funny in one moment can be
tragic in the next. And a subtle "public" retaliation can have lifetime
Ideal use of social media on our website would confine your disclosures
primarily to matters pertaining to you, not others. If in doubt, it's best to
err on the side of non-disclosure. It's doubtful the disclosure is so meaningful
that it cannot be offset by the precaution of acting to protect the best
interests of someone who is involuntarily being exposed by your decision to
disclose something on our SqueezeNinja.com website (or another).
You should likewise pause to consider the long-term effects of a split-second
decision to publicly share private information about yourself on our
SqueezeNinja.com website. Opinions, likes, dislikes, preferences, and
otherwise can change. Openly divulging perspectives that you hold today, may
conflict with your developing views into the futures. Yet, the "new you" will
always stand juxtaposed against the prior declarations you made that are now
concretized as part of your public profile. While the contents of your breakfast
may hold little long-term impact, other data likewise readily shared can have
consequences that could conceivably impact your ability to obtain certain
employment or hinder other life experiences and ambitions.
As with sharing information about other people, extreme caution should be used
before revealing information about yourself. If in doubt, it's likely best not
to do it. The short term gain, if any, could readily be outweighed by later
consequences. Finally, you should note that we are not responsible for removing
content once shared, and we may not be able to do so.
Restrictions on Use of Social Media Data
You, as a visitor to our SqueezeNinja.com website, are not permitted to
"mine" social media or other platforms contained herein for personal information
related to others. Even where people have publicly displayed data, you should
not construe that as though you have the liberty to capture, reproduce, or reuse
that information. Any use of social media or related platforms on our website
are for interactive use only, relevant only during the website visit.
Accuracy of Social Media Data
As any social media platform is built on user-generated content, you should
consider this fact in seeking to determine the authenticity of anything you
read. We are not responsible for verifying any user-generated content for
accuracy. A best practices policy would be to view all such content as strictly
opinion, not fact.
Potential Issues of Liability
You should also be mindful of the fact that your words could trigger liability
for harm caused to others. While you have the right to free speech, you do not
have the right to damage other people. Under basic principles of tort law, you
are always responsible, personally, for situations where either:
1. you were required to act, but did not (i.e. - some "duty of care")
2. your were required to refrain from acting, but did not (i.e. - slander,
These "sins of omission and commission" could cause problems for you,
irrespective of whether you assert you are conducting business under the guise
of one or more business entities. Illegal and unethical conduct, when done in
the name of a corporation or LLC, is still illegal and unethical conduct. As it
is rarely part of a business plan to engage in illegal and unethical conduct,
you are doubtfully operating in any official capacity, but rather, perhaps,
leveraging that capacity to effectuate personal wrongdoing. You should consult a
licensed attorney if you wish legal advice as to the (potential) ramification of
your situation or legal problems stemming from this website or another.
CHANGE NOTICE: As with any of our administrative and legal notice pages, the
contents of this page can and will change over time. Accordingly, this page
could read differently as of your very next visit. These changes are
necessitated, and carried out by SqueezeNinja.com, in order to protect you
and our SqueezeNinja.com website. If this page is important to you, you
should check back frequently as no other notice of changed content will be
provided either before or after the change takes effect.
