Official Social Media Channels
Official RAD channels all use the handle @radworkshere. RAD is not responsible for non-official pages or content generated by users on official or non-official pages or platforms.
Terms and Conditions
RAD’s social media pages are located within platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter that have their own terms of services, privacy policies, and other rules to which users are subject when users visit those pages.
RAD monitors its social media pages and reserves the right to remove posts and comments deemed inappropriate or offensive. Users are fully responsible for everything that they post or submit in their comments, and all posted material is in the public domain. RAD’s individual social media pages contain their own commenting policy statements and conditions which users are presumed to have read and understand in their use of the channels.
Social media is not considered an official channel for contacting the Allegheny Regional Asset District, its officials, or its staff. While RAD often responds to queries and comments on social media, staffing for that purpose is not 24/7. RAD encourages users to follow instructions on how to officially contact our office by visiting the “Contact Us” link on radworkshere.org.

RAD does not claim ownership of content users submit or make available on our social media pages. We only claim rights in what official RAD users write, post, or otherwise share. If users want to use a logo, a video, a document, etc., they must obtain RAD’s express permission.
RAD may post links to other public and/or private organizations on social media. A link does not constitute an endorsement of content, viewpoint, policies, products, or services of that website. Once a user clicks a link to an external website not maintained or owned by RAD, the user is subject to the terms and conditions of that website.
