Social Media Policy

At the Foundation, we plan to have an active presence on social media through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo and other types of social media channels. We also encourage conversation with individuals and organizations that are interested in kidney care, research, and education. Please note that we are a new organization and it might take some time in order for us to respond.

We encourage your comments and opinions, and we aim to respond to as many of your posts as we can. To keep the conversation productive, we ask you to please:

  • Keep personal information private. Please don’t post medical and personal information about yourself or others, including family and friends. The internet is not private, and the information that you post will never go away, sometimes even after you delete it.
  • Be honest. Please don’t misrepresent yourself or post information that you know is incorrect.
  • Be polite. If you use profanity or post a personal attack, vulgar language, or harassing comment, we will remove it.
  • Don’t post spam. This includes repeated postings, chain letters, advertisements, and all other postings that are unrelated to kidney care or the Foundation.


We reserve the right to review comments posted on our social media sites and to remove any that violate our policy. We also reserve the right to block repeat offenders from continuing to post.

Please remember, we’re here to provide information, not advice, so our postings are not professional medical recommendations. Please consult your medical provider with any specific questions that you have about your health.

Postings that appear on our social media site don’t necessarily reflect the views of the Foundation. If and when we link to another website, that site may not necessarily reflect our views, either. And, if we choose to follow another user or highlight another social media post, we’re not endorsing that user or content.

When you post on our social media sites, please understand that you agree to indemnify us against any legal claims related to posted material, such as damages, losses, liabilities, judgments, costs, and/or expenses.
