Griffenergy Social Media Terms of Use


Griffenergy is an active participant in a variety of social media channels. The Griffenergy Facebook pages, Griffenergy Twitter accounts, Griffenergy Instagram account, Griffenergy YouTube channel, Griffenergy LinkedIn, and Griffenergy Google+ accounts (collectively, “Social Media Channels”) are social media locations for community members to connect to and learn about Griffenergy through pictures, information, and video regarding initiatives and programs. We aim to provide appropriate information, answer your questions, and listen to all feedback. We intend to provide helpful and interesting content about our company and foster an open and respectful dialogue relating to the particular issues and topics covered in our posts and tweets and other multi-media.

We want to hear from you and support comments, critiques, questions and opinions.

Griffenergy reserves all rights relating to the company's Social Media Channels, including but not limited to: (i) removing, adding, or modifying any content, (ii) blocking disruptive users, and (iii) terminating any of our Social Media Channels at any time. Griffenergy does not represent that the data on Griffenergy Social Media Channels is complete, accurate, useful, reliable, timely or current. You read all content at your own risk. Do not rely on the information or advice in any of these postings.

Griffenergy may, in its sole discretion, delete irresponsible information or content that is otherwise incompatible with the purpose of the Griffenergy Social Media Channels; namely, distribution and sharing of on-topic, relevant content. To the extent applicable, Griffenergy preserves the right to block any user that fails to understand these Terms of Use.

    Content posted by fake or unknown users.
  • Comments that are suggestive of legal action involving Griffenergy.

Our Social Media Channels are not a suitable place to resolve issues, complaints or opinions about individual sales and service experiences or our products. This does not mean we do not want to learn about such issues, but trained representatives best handle these types of concerns. If you are interested in sharing comments or feedback outside the reach of these channels, you can communicate a message through our “Contact Us” tab on Griffenergy.com. Comments may be forwarded to other Griffenergy departments and personnel to ensure suitable follow-up.

Please keep in mind that Griffenergy does not control, create, represent, or endorse any opinions or statements expressed by others within its Social Media Channels, including those that follow or like Griffenergy and those followed and liked by Griffenergy and that any content posted by anyone other than Griffenergy is the responsibility of the submitter and not Griffenergy .
