How does sharing work?

All listed social media sites are free to use and require you to register with them before you begin sharing our links. You will not need an account with the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company (IOMSPC) to do this.

When you click on a listed site's logo you will be directed away from the IOMSPC website to the selected social site. The IOMSPC will not ask you for any personal information during this process.

Please note, when you click on one of these links and navigate to an external site such as Facebook or Twitter, you will be subject to the terms of use and privacy policy of that website. Also note, clicking on these links may result in a cookie being set in your browser by the website with which you have chosen to share a page.

What happens when I use the links on your pages to share items?

Sharing is a simple process. When you navigate to any of the available external sites - Facebook, Twitter etc. a pop-up will appear that enables you to sign in to that site (if you are not already signed in), and then share our link.

Which services do you link to?

Currently, we provide prominent buttons that will help you use the following sites - Facebook and Twitter - as well as a 'share menu' that provides access to others.

How did you decide which services to link to?

We have chosen the most relevant social sites for our users by assessing the volume of referrals from those sites to the IOMSPC website, their technical compatibility, and the number of users they have overall. All of the services chosen are currently free at the point of access for users. We monitor the range of social sites on the internet and regularly review our choice.
