Social Media Policy

"Jai Herboking Always King”



The use of social media both inside and outside of the company is transforming the way people interact. It allows for online collaboration that promotes sharing of knowledge and ideas regardless of rank, title, or experience. However, this also comes with certain risks and responsibilities. This policy aims to ensure safe, positive, and truly representative interactions on social media platforms that align with the company's values and brand.


This policy applies to every employee, direct seller, supplier, vendor, customer, or any other person associated with the company. This includes all forms of social media and online services that allow users to share information.


This policy complies with all applicable laws such as the Consumer Protection (Direct Selling) Rules, 2021, Consumer Protection Act, 2019, Consumer Protection (E-Commerce) Rules, 2020, Information Technology Act 2000 (IT Act 2000), Copyright Act, 1957, and any other applicable laws.


The purpose of this social media policy is to set expectations for appropriate behavior, ensure that posts do not expose the company to legal problems or public embarrassment, and minimize the risks of social media that may impact the reputation of the company and its products.

Personal Account – Direct Seller

When creating social media accounts, direct sellers need to decide whether to use it for personal, professional, or both purposes. If entirely personal, direct sellers must not mention the company in any situations, share company content or connect personal information with the company.

Professional Account

Once a direct seller links their social media account or blog to the company, they need to follow certain guidelines:

The account should always reflect the voice of an individual and not a corporate channel.

Anything posted should align with the company's values and ethical principles.

Do not include the company in the profile or username.

Retweets or shares are endorsements, so direct sellers should not share content that constitutes an infringement of intellectual property rights, defamation, disparagement or abuse.

Confidential information or intellectual property must not be shared.

DOs and DON'Ts for Employee

Different principles apply to the use of social media on behalf of the company and personal use. Employees must:

Adhere to the company Code of Conduct and other policies while using social media.

Ensure appropriate information is obtained before posting images, responses, or using third-party copyright, trademarks, or other intellectual property.

Focus on work during working hours and refrain from posting content on social media.

Employees must not

Publish, post, or release any confidential or non-public information without consent.

Use social media to defame, harass, discriminate or violate the rights of others.
