Code of Business Ethics

Protecting Company Property and Resources

To perform our jobs, we need access to appropriate resources. These resources may be used only for company authorized activities and may not be used for personal gain. We have a duty to protect these assets from loss, damage, theft, misuse and waste.

What are company resources?

Company resources include physical and intangible assets. Physical assets are assets such as materials, supplies, computers and equipment; while intangible assets include information assets, brand protection, employee time and talents, confidential information and other intellectual property.

What is expected of you?

  • Act appropriately and responsibly with company resources, including your own time and the time of others.
  • Never use, take, or permit others to use or take, company property and resources, including information contained in electronic format, on portable memory devices and on other electronic storage devices, for personal or non-company purposes whether at the office (in or out of working hours), or at any other location.
  • Properly store all confidential information when not in use.
