Social Media Comment Policy

The Iowa Funeral Directors Association (IFDA) uses social media to provide an open source for communication, and welcomes comments, questions and ideas. IFDA understands that social media is a 24/7 medium; however, IFDA cannot monitor, post or respond to comments 24/7. IFDA staff will respond as quickly as possible. Generally, IFDA will post or respond to comments from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. IFDA expects individuals to maintain an acceptable degree of civility.

IFDA monitors all comments and reserves the right to immediately delete any comment deemed inappropriate. Repeated violations of the IFDA’s comment policy may cause the author to be blocked from the Facebook page.

A comment will be deleted if it contains the following:

  • Hate speech
  • Profanity, obscenity or vulgarity—including creative spellings of swear words using asterisks
  • Sexual content or links to sexual content
  • Defamation to a person or people
  • Comments that promote or advertise a person, business or commercial transaction
  • Comments that promote or oppose any person campaigning for election to a political office, or that promote or oppose any ballot measure
  • Comments that infringe on copyrights
  • Spam comments, such as the same comment posted repeatedly
  • Other comments that the IFDA Officers or staff members deems inappropriate


IFDA disclaims any liability for any loss or damage resulting from any reliance on such information. Anyone who posts comments participates at his or her own risk, taking personal responsibility for posted comments, username and any information provided.

Comments posted to IFDA social media sites represent the opinions of the individuals providing the comment and not the views, positions or policies of IFDA.

This comment policy is subject to modification at any time. Thank you for taking the time to read our comment policy. Please check IFDA social media for news and information.
