PROTECTING COMPANY ASSETS
The Company has many valued assets, including its physical property, propriety trade secrets, electronic media, funds, records and confidential information. Protecting these assets against loss, theft, and misuse is everyones responsibility. Company property should be used for legitimate business purposes and may not be used for personal benefit, nor may it be sold, loaned, given away or disposed of without proper authorization.
Theft, carelessness and waste of the Companys assets have a direct impact on the Companys profitability and cannot be tolerated. Those individuals authorized to use funds of the Company are responsible for assuring the Company receives proper value in return. The use of the Companys funds for personal, improper or illegal purposes is strictly prohibited and the Company will take appropriate action, including notifying the appropriate civil authorities, if this principle is violated and in any such case, disciplinary action will be taken. Further, the use of any assets of the Company in a manner that is offensive, disruptive or destructive is prohibited.
Any individual aware of the loss or misuse of assets should report it to a supervisor. Supervisors receiving such reports will report them to CAIs Chief Financial Officer or Vice President of Operations. Investigations will be conducted confidentially and in a way that will avoid recrimination.
Associates deal on a daily basis with confidential information about the Company. This information may include business plans, marketing and pricing information, customer lists, non-public financial information, unannounced shutdowns and plans for new business and other information that may be useful to competitors or otherwise harmful to the Company or its customers or suppliers if disclosed. At managements discretion, selected associates will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement, either when they begin employment or when they are transferred to a position allowing access to confidential or trade secret information.
Each associate should assume that all information about the Company and its business is confidential (except in those circumstances where the Company has disclosed the information in its filings with the SEC or where the employee can otherwise verify that the information is publicly known). Similarly, each associate employee should assume that all information disclosed to the Company by its customers and suppliers is confidential (except in those circumstances where the customer or supplier has explicitly consented to its disclosure or the associate can otherwise verify that the information is publicly known).
Except when disclosure is authorized or legally mandated, each associate is obliged during and after his or her employment, to hold all of the above referenced confidential information in confidence, to refrain from disclosing any such information to any person outside the Company, and to refrain from using such information for any purpose other than the performance of his or her duties to the Company. Also, associates should not disclose confidential or proprietary information or trade secrets to other associates of the Company or its affiliates except on a need to know basis.
The Companys electronic media, including computers, intranet, internet and e-mail, are to be used only for business purposes. With your supervisors approval, limited personal use of these resources may be permitted. This use must not increase costs, influence productivity, reduce network performance, damage the Companys reputation or interfere with your work duties and responsibilities.
Unacceptable use of electronic media includes visiting inappropriate internet sites and storing, sending or forwarding inappropriate e-mails. This includes obscene, racist, hateful, harassing, pornographic or offensive material of any kind. Data or information created or stored using the Companys electronic media is not private and may be monitored, retrieved and audited by the Company at any time without notice.
Associates shall be careful how they communicate in memos, studies, reports, e-mail and voicemail, since poorly and hastily prepared worded documents or messages can give the impression that improper activity took place when in fact it did not.
The Company further licenses the use of computer software from a variety of third parties. The Company does not own the copyright to this software or its related documentation and, unless authorized by the software developer, does not have the right to reproduce it for any use not specified in the license agreement. Copyright laws, license agreements and Company policy also prohibit individuals from making copies of programs used at work for their own personal use. It is the responsibility of any associate using computer software to see that the terms of software licenses are adhered to.
