Our social media channels exist to provide information about Rundle Mall latest updates and/or news and happenings, including initiatives, promotions or events. As an open and inclusive city, we welcome any form of interaction (discussion, sharing, reacting) on our social media channels. However, we want to ensure a safe, respectful and considerate environment for our community.

By using or accessing any of Rundle Mall’s pages, you agree to comply with Rundle Mall’s social media house rules and relevant social media channel's terms and conditions.

The following guidelines are designed to facilitate a quality environment for our online community. Please take a minute to read through them and do keep them in mind whenever you participate.

Rundle Mall reserves the right to delete comments, links, photos and videos deemed inappropriate. Types of inappropriate content include information that is:

If you don’t adhere to the above, we will moderate and potentially remove your comment. We may choose to take the discussion 'offline' or into a private channel if we believe that the content is personal in nature or is affecting the enjoyment of the page for other visitors.

If you have any questions or comments about this policy, please contact us.
