Kyowa Kirin North America Community Guidelines for Social Media Channels

Last updated: June 2021

Kyowa Kirin manages a variety of social media channels where we share information and strive to foster engaging, supportive communities.

We will do our best to provide relevant, timely and important information and engage with you, pursuant to these guidelines, to address your questions, hear your insights and respond as appropriate. Because we operate in a heavily regulated industry, there may be some questions or comments we are not able to address or will need to follow up on before we can respond but we will do our best to let you know if this is the case.
If you post to one of our social media channels, or otherwise respond or comment on one of our posts, you are agreeing to abide by our Community Guidelines, in addition to the Terms and Conditions or other legal notices that are provided by us and/or the owner of the social media platform such as: LinkedIn's User Agreement, Facebook's Terms of Service, Twitter's Terms of Service, and Instagram's Terms of Service. ("Guidelines")
Our social media channels are intended for US Residents 13 years of age or older. IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 13, YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR USE THIS SITE OR THE SERVICES, OR PROVIDE US WITH ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION. If you are age 13 or older but under the age of majority in your place of residence (age 18 in the U.S.), you represent that you have reviewed these Guidelines with your parent or legal guardian and that you and your parent or guardian understand and consent to the Guidelines. Please refer to our Privacy Policy for more information on how we protect the privacy of children.

Such information is not meant to be a substitute for the advice provided by your doctor. You should not use the information for diagnosing a health or fitness problem or disease. You should always consult your doctor. Likewise, please refrain from posting information that provides medical or other professional advice, nor do we provide such advice through the accounts.

  • These accounts are not the best place to discuss safety issues or side effects associated with our treatments or other companies' products.

  • Due to operating in a regulated industry, and depending on the intent of the account, there are some topics that we are not able to address publicly and will triage to the appropriate contact accordingly. Please note that we may not be able to address all comments, particularly if they violate these Guidelines. We reserve the right to monitor comments but are under no obligation to do so except to the extent required by law or regulation. Through this monitoring, we may choose to remove any posts or comments that do not comply with these Guidelines and reserve the right to block future posting for repeat offenders.
