NAM has different internal policies relative to social media, based on whether the social media page or site is that of the firm (“Company Page”) or that of one of the firm’s employees. Please note that NAM does not allow third-party comments on its Company Pages and will use its best efforts to delete any comments from its Company Page within a timely manner.
However, NAM does allow certain employees to use social media for business-related purposes, and NAM does allow commentary on those employees’ social media pages. The following guidelines apply to comments on employees’ social media pages:
Please do not post on social media any matter that would be more appropriately discussed with NAM or a NAM employee.
Please do not post any customer service related questions on social media – instead, please contact NAM directly.
We take your confidential information seriously. Please do not post any of your personal or private information on social media, including information regarding your accounts.
Please do not discuss your experience as an investor with NAM or any NAM employee on NAM’s social media pages.
NAM does not provide any investment advice or recommendations about specific stocks or funds on social media. We ask that you don’t, either.
Please do not post any comments that may be offensive, inappropriate, harassing, or defamatory to others – NAM reserves the right to delete or block third-party content deemed offensive, inappropriate, illegal, harassing, or defamatory.
Please do not post any non-public information on social media.
Please do not post advertisements, endorsements, or recommendations for the services of another person or firm on this page.

NAM reserves the right to delete or block any third-party content deemed illegal, inappropriate, or offensive.

As such, NAM is not responsible for reviewing such responses or taking any action in response thereto.
NAM reserves the right to discontinue at any time its policy of allowing third parties to comment on its employees’ social media pages. NAM will update these Terms in accordance with any change in its policy.
