COMPLIANCE CORNER DO YOU COMMUNICATE VIA THE INTERNET? The Internet has provided the oppor- tunity for Wolfpack supporters from all over the world to communicate with each other in ways not possible before. The following regulations regarding the internet are very important for all Wolf- packers to know: MESSAGE BOARDS: Wolfpack do- nors, supporters and boosters participat- ing on a message board are not permitted to write, call, instant message, text, chat with, or e-mail a prospect. (Remember, a prospect is any student who is in the ninth grade or above.) Further, as soon as someone on a message board e-mails or sends a message out to a prospect, they automatically become a booster under NCAA rules and are then subject to NCAA rules prohibiting such contact. SOCIAL NETWORKING: Wolf- pack donors, supporters and boosters are not permitted to use social networking websites (e.g., Facebook, Twitter and MySpace) to contact or otherwise at- tempt to correspond with prospects. This includes, but is not limited to, posting on a wall, using the inbox/e-mail feature, instant messaging, "@replies," "men- tions" or direct messaging. As electronic communication technol- ogy continues to advance, the oppor- tunity for the supporters of an athletics program to have impermissible contact with a prospect or a prospect's family is greatly increased; however, the institu- tion's responsibility for the actions of its donors, supporters and boosters for that contact remains the same. We ask that all Wolfpackers, donors and supporters who have access to the type of websites described above assist us in following the guidelines that gov- ern those sites. As always, your efforts to help NC State maintain a culture of compliance, and thus stay out of trouble, are greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us. "ASK BEFORE YOU ACT" by contacting NC State Athletic Compliance directly. Toll Free: 1-855-5 COMPLY (1-855-526-6759) Text: 919-675-4424 E-mail: Online:
