2. Be honest about who you are. Where your connection to Cambridge Lacrosse is apparent or when commenting on matters related to Cambridge Lacrosse, include a disclaimer of include your position with the club in your online profile.
3. Maintain confidentiality. Do not share any confidential or privileged information online. Respect the privacy of the club and its members by refraining from sharing information unless you have permission to do so.
