PACA Social Media Terms and Conditions
We want everyone to enjoy using our social media channels (our Community) at PACA so we ask you to agree to abide by our terms and conditions. If you contribute to our social media channels it means you accept and agree to abide by these terms and conditions.
The Community is run by PACA. PACA’s address is
Portslade Aldridge Community Academy
Our Community is moderated each day from Monday to Friday. We will check all contributions to our social media channels to make sure they are compliant and meet our content standards described below as soon as we can.

Although the Community is moderated, we are under no obligation to moderate the Community and we may stop moderating the Community at any time without telling you before doing so.
We will remove, or disable access to, any contribution that we believe breaches our content standards.

We are not liable for any loss or damage arising from use of the Community by any person contravening these terms and conditions, or from us failing to take action if they do, or for any loss or damage arising from any mistakes or omissions.
