The Company values your privacy and has taken steps to ensure that your personal information, and the personal information of anyone we do business with, including but not limited to, job applicants; current and former employees; potential, current, and former customers and vendors, is not available to any unauthorized person. The following policy has been put in effect to safeguard Social Security numbers and personal information.

All employees must recognize that personal information, such as social security numbers, drivers' license numbers, state identification card numbers, bank account numbers, credit or debit card numbers, passport numbers, alien registration numbers, and health insurance identification numbers, is confidential information, and such information shall always be handled in a manner reasonably designed to protect it. No employee has the authority to release such personal information to anyone without written permission. Further, no employee may access such information unless that employee has a legitimate business need to use such information for a work related purpose.

All employees, whose job duties and responsibilities provide them with access to personal information, such as social security numbers, drivers' license numbers, state identification card numbers, bank account numbers, credit or debit card numbers, passport numbers, alien registration numbers, and health insurance identification numbers, will be notified that such information must be treated as confidential and such employees shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that there is no unauthorized release of that information.

Any written document that contains personal information, including but not limited to social security numbers, drivers' license numbers, state identification card numbers, bank account numbers, credit or debit card numbers, passport numbers, alien registration numbers, and health insurance identification numbers, shall be kept in locked file cabinet, and access to such documents shall be limited to employees with a legitimate business need to use such information for a work related purpose.

Any personal information, such as social security numbers, drivers' license numbers, state identification card numbers, bank account numbers, credit or debit card numbers, passport numbers, alien registration numbers, and health insurance identification numbers that is stored on the company's computers, shall be reasonably protected by limiting access to such information to employees with a legitimate business need to use such information for a work related purpose. Such information shall be password protected.

Personal information, such as social security numbers, drivers' license numbers, state identification card numbers, bank account numbers, credit or debit card numbers, passport numbers, alien registration numbers, and health insurance identification numbers, shall be erased, made unreadable, or deleted from any document or computer file prior to the disposal of the document or the computer file.

Personal information does not include publicly available information that is lawfully made available to the general public from federal, state or local government records or widely distributed media.

Any individual who learns that personal information is being mishandled shall report such misuse to Robert West, Margaret Satalino, or Betty Fucci as soon as reasonable under the circumstances.

Any employee who mishandles any data, documents, and/or computer files that contains personal information, including but not limited to social security numbers, drivers' license numbers, state identification card numbers, bank account numbers, credit or debit card numbers, passport numbers, alien registration numbers, and health insurance identification numbers, will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination, at the sole discretion of the Company.

If you have any questions about this policy or the Company’s attempts to protect personal information, contact Robert West, Margaret Satalino, or Betty Fucci.
