Facebook Community Guidelines
Clear communication is at the root of any good relationship. That's why we're excited to share what we're doing with you. However, we all 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.
- Never post personal, identifying or confidential information.
Please note that this page is moderated by MBNA employees. We'll make every effort to respond in a timely manner; however, we can't guarantee that we'll reply to every comment.

MBNA has a presence on various social media/social networking websites and may occasionally identify and respond to customers seeking assistance with account-related issues. In the event a customer receives such a communication from MBNA regarding a service request or other need, the customer may be offered other MBNA contact channels to help address those concerns as smoothly and effectively as possible. To aid that process MBNA may ask you to provide your name and telephone number by email or direct message. MBNA will never ask you to disclose account information and you should never post personal, identifying or confidential information.
Those are the basics. Our full policies are listed below.
Our Facebook page is moderated by MBNA employees. All comments and posts will be reviewed to ensure that they comply with our policies. We reserve the right to delete comments or posts that we deem are abusive, inflammatory or otherwise inappropriate. Please note:
- Our Facebook page is a place for conversations between and among individuals and MBNA and is not a substitute channel for services or general questions. Please visit www.mbna.co.uk for more information about specific products and services.
- Do not post or transmit material you do not have the right to post or transmit under law (such as copyright, trade secrets or securities) or due to your personal contractual or fiduciary relationships.
- Our Facebook page may not be used for the submission of any claim, demand, informal or formal complaint, or any other form of legal and/or administrative notice or process, or for the exhaustion of any legal and/or administrative remedy. If you want to make a complaint, please see our complaints procedure here. We are committed to dealing with complaints properly and urge you to follow our complaints procedure if you do want to complain. We are sorry we cannot accept complaints via Facebook, but Facebook content may not be secure or confidential and we’re committed to protecting your privacy.
- Our Facebook page is also not to be used to report phishing or criminal activity. Suspicious emails should be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to make a report, please call 0800 062 062 and a representative can assist you.
- MBNA reserves the right to ban any user from our page without prior written notice or consent for violations of community policies. Any comment(s) posted which we deem to be criminal in nature, or instigates or implies violence toward oneself or another may be reported to the proper authorities.
Comment and posting policy
We expect conversations to follow the rules of polite discourse and we ask that participants treat each other, as well as our employees, with respect. We may delete comments or posts that we deem to be:
- Profane, obscene, inappropriate, disruptive or unrelated.
- Indecent, sexually explicit or pornographic material of any kind — including masked profanity where symbols, initials, intentional misspellings or other characters are used to suggest profane language.
- Threats; personal attacks; abusive, defamatory, derogatory, or inflammatory language; or stalking or harassment of any individual, entity or organization.
- Discriminatory or that contain hateful speech of any kind regarding age, gender, race, religion, nationality, sexual orientation or disability.
- False, inaccurate, libellous or otherwise misleading in any way.
- Spam, or containing external links, or containing or linking to any kind of virus, malware, spyware, or similar program that could cause harm to a user's computer.
For the benefit of healthy discussion, we ask that comments remain on topic. This means that comments should relate to the topic that is being discussed within that wall post. While we welcome reasonable critiques, we may delete negative comments about MBNA and/or our competitors that aren't relevant and don't add to the overall experience.
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.
If you are a member of the media, please contact our MBNA newsroom on 01244 574136 or email email@example.com for more information and press contacts.
