Cadence Bank Social Media Community Guidelines
Cadence is present on LinkedIn and Facebook because we feel it’s important to maintain a dialogue with our customers and our communities. We’re interested in sharing useful news, financial tips, and relevant, timely updates about Cadence and what we’re doing in our local communities. Please keep in mind that banking is a highly-regulated industry, and we must abide by certain rules.
All of our pages are public. This means that your posts are visible to anybody on Facebook and may even show up in search-engine results (like Google, Yahoo! or Bing).
We encourage you to actively take part in the conversation while following a few simple guidelines:
- Stay on topic – respect others and use common courtesy, even when interacting with those who may have differing points of view.
- Never share personal, identifying or confidential information about yourself or others, including specific account details. This warrants repeating. For your own safety, it is critical that you maintain your privacy and confidentiality.
- Avoid content you think or know to be fraudulent or factually inaccurate. Unlawful comments will be taken down.
- Don’t spam. Use original content that contributes to a vibrant conversation, and avoid comments aimed solely at selling a product or service or simply for personal or monetary gain.
- Need help with your Cadence account? We’re happy to assist you, and ask that you call us at 800-636-7622 or contact your local branch.
