Facebook Community Guidelines

It’s all about Relationships here at Bank of New Jersey which is why we have a vested interest in contributing to our local communities and sharing what we do with you. However, because the banking industry is highly regulated, we have to follow certain rules.

Our Facebook page is public, which means that anyone can see your posts on Facebook and your posts may even show up in search-engine results (like on Google or Yahoo!). While we want to foster healthy discussion, we may occasionally remove posts that don’t fit our community guidelines.

Because our Facebook page is a public page and anyone can participate, we cannot be responsible for views expressed other than our own.

We encourage everyone to:

  • Stay on topic, use common courtesy and be respectful of others;
  • Submit your own original content, and avoid content that you know to be fraudulent;
  • Do not post someone else’s copyrighted work unless you have permission; and
  • Never post personal, identifying or confidential information.

Please note that this page is moderated by Bank of New Jersey employees. We’ll make every effort to respond in a timely manner; however, we can’t guarantee that we’ll reply to every comment.

Those are the basics. Our full policies are listed below.

We may delete comments that we deem to be off topic, including solicitations. In addition, we may remove identical posts by the same user or multiple users (a group of people sending identical messages or one person submitting under different aliases). In the case of identical posts, we will leave the first submission and delete the duplicates.
