Internet Safety

As members of Leicester Warriors here are some tips to ensure you remain safe and professional when using social media and messaging apps:

  • Be positive and respectful, and always take the high road
  • When disagreeing with others’ opinions, remain appropriate and polite.
  • Do not post content that would harm or damage the Club’s reputation.
  • Remember that even while you are on your own personal time, you are a representative of the Club, and people may interpret your online postings or social interactions as though they were official Leicester Warriors statements.
  • Use good judgment when posting comments. If you are unsure whether a comment is appropriate to post, do not post it.
  • Be smart about what you publish. Once something is posted, it exists online forever.
