Shortened Links in Social Media
Through our social media platform accounts we may share web links to relevant web pages. By default, some social media platforms shorten lengthy urls [web addresses].
Users are advised to take caution and good judgement before clicking any shortened urls published on social media platforms by PHW or Every Child Wales. Despite the best efforts to ensure only genuine urls are published many social media platforms are prone to spam and hacking and therefore Public Health Wales and its owners cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any shortened links.
