Huntington’s WA does not monitor this site & social media profiles daily and we are unable to provide crisis support through these platforms. If you need support or are worried about someone please contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or visit the link below for a comprehensive list of useful services.

Social Media Terms and Conditions

Huntington’s WA social media platforms are intended to provide general information, support and awareness-raising. No information included on our social media platforms is intended to substitute medical advice and you should always seek advice from your healthcare professionals. When we link to third-party sites, we do so as an information service and convenience to users but do not take responsibility for the content of these links.

Please be aware that Huntington’s WA social media platforms are not continuously monitored.

We have a strong focus on maintaining privacy and confidentiality in our social media platform interactions, but as a user, you need to be aware of keeping your personal information private. You may wish to check your privacy settings on accounts such as a Facebook profile.

By using our social media platforms, you are agreeing to adhere to our code of conduct. You agree to be respectful and honest, and not abuse, intimidate or threaten others, or post any defamatory, obscene, hateful or unlawful material. We reserve the right to remove any posts which we consider violate these guidelines.

We will preserve the content of any e-mail you send us if we believe we have the legal requirement to do so. Your e-mail message content may be monitored by us for trouble shooting or maintenance purposes or if any form of e-mail abuse is suspected.

Security of Information
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Whilst we strive to protect such information, we do not warrant and cannot ensure the security of any information which you transmit to us. Accordingly, any information which you transmit to us is transmitted at your own risk. Nevertheless, once we receive your transmission, we will take those steps which we believe, in our absolute discretion, to be reasonable in order to preserve the security of such information.

Termination of Access
Your access to the Website may be terminated at any time by us without notice. Our disclaimer will nevertheless survive any such termination.

Governing Law
These terms and conditions are governed by the laws in force in Western Australia. You agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of that jurisdiction.

We accept no liability for any failure to comply with these terms and conditions where such failure is due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

If we waive any rights available to us under these terms and conditions on one occasion, this does not mean that those rights will automatically be waived on any other occasion. Similarly, the failure of us to enforce any provision of these terms and conditions at any time does not deem, nor is it to be taken as constituting, a waiver of our rights to enforce those provisions.

If any of these terms and conditions are held to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal for any reason, the remaining terms and conditions shall nevertheless continue in full force.
