N B: Social Media Usage
Louth Hunt Pony Club would like parents/guardians/members to be aware that children using the social media websites such as Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat can leave themselves vulnerable to inappropriate comments, messages, photos etc.
It is important to note that Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat require everyone to be at least 13 years of age before they can create an account.
It needs to be remembered that some children under the age of 13 can "follow" older children. This can lead to underage children witnessing inappropriate data on devices.
The Louth Hunt Pony Club is not in a position to monitor, control or deal with social media usage, so therefore we are asking you, parents and guardians, to advise your child about usage of same. Parents/guardians will be contacted if any social media issues arise and both parties (members and their parents/guardians) will be asked to personally resolve any issues of concern.
