Social Community Rules

Overview

A. Sween Company and/or its affiliates (collectively, “E.A. Sween”) and its related products such as Deli Express® and Market Sandwich® are enthusiastic about the possibilities of communication and exchanges of information possible through social media, whether it’s our Facebook pages, blogs, or Instagram. We’re all about food, and food is all about fun—and social media can be very fun! That’s why we welcome and encourage open discussion on our social media sites.

Our promise to you is that we will do our best to monitor participation to make sure that people who post on our pages are courteous and avoid making offensive comments. E.A. Sween Co. is a family company, and we want our social media pages to be family-friendly. In other words: Keep it polite, keep it clean, and keep conversations civil.

As we keep an eye on the social conversation, E.A. Sween reserves the right to delete comments that do not fit the above criteria. We also reserve the right to block people who are repeat offenders. (We really hope it never comes to this.) Rather than deleting comments or blocking people, what we really want to do is have fun, and talk about food!
