It is important for you to protect the reputation of our business when using the Internet and mobile technology so that we can continue to grow and prosper. The better we do, the more products, services, and opportunities we can provide to you and others. This means that when you use social media, it is essential that you do so in a way that protects our reputation and yours too.
Examples of social media include:
· Blogs (Company blogs and external blogs)
· Micro-Blogging (e.g. Twitter)
· Search Engine Groups (e.g. Yahoo! Groups, Google Groups, etc.)
· Social Networks (e.g. MySpace, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.)
· Social News sites (Digg, Fark, Mashable, Reddit, etc.)
· Photo and Video hosting sites (e.g. Flickr, YouTube, Google Video, etc.)
· Web forums (Company forums and external forums)
· Wikis (e.g. Wikipedia)
Of course, social media evolves with technology, so this list contains examples, but it is not all-inclusive.
To preserve and enhance our online reputation, it has become necessary to create this social media policy with guidelines that apply to you whether you’re using social media as part of your assignments or for your own personal use. This policy does not imply an employment or independent contractor status. Here are some basic guidelines on how to use social media consistent with this policy.
· All content posted to social media on behalf of our company is only permitted after receiving written authorization to post such content by our company’s designated Social Media Contact Person listed below. All content containing our company name, logo, trademarks, or service marks may imply that it is posted on behalf of our company whether or not you intended to make that representation. When in doubt, ask for written permission before posting.
· When personally commenting in social media about our company, or policy issues related to our company, you must disclose your employment status and clearly state that your comments are your own personal views (that is, your own personal opinion) and do not necessarily reflect our company’s views.
· All content posted to social media must be consistent with our company’s other policies, including but not limited to, our policies concerning business ethics, inappropriate conduct, harassment, and information security.
· All content posted to social media must comply with applicable laws, including, but not limited to, privacy laws, securities laws, and intellectual property laws.
· No content posted to social media shall include confidential or proprietary information from either our company or any third parties whose data has been provided to our company. This includes, but is not limited to, trade secrets, customer lists, personal identification numbers, driver’s license numbers, home addresses, and credit card numbers.
· To protect our company or to comply with the law, we may ask you to remove, redact, or edit certain information that you have posted to social media in violation of this policy or other company policies. You are expected to promptly comply with this request; otherwise we reserve the right to issue a Take Down Request.
Remember that these
guidelines protect both you and our company because what you post in social
media can create legal liabilities for all of us in addition to damaging
reputations. When in doubt, leave it out. Failure to comply with this policy and
copyright policy may lead to disciplinary or legal action. If you have any questions
