Guidelines for Representing the Company on the Internet

If you are an employee of the company and are writing a blog that will reference the company in
any way (includes mentioning our products, services, and competitors), the blog or website must
state that your opinions are yours alone and are not those of the company. You must also identify
yourself as an employee of the company. As a courtesy, please notify the company that you are
writing this blog or website.

You are not authorized to speak on behalf of the company.


You are prohibited from writing information on your blog or website that is considered
proprietary or confidential. Confidential or proprietary information can include product
information and releases, company or marketing strategies and plans, or any other information
that has not already been released to the public. If you are not sure what is considered proprietary
and confidential, consult with your supervisor or the Human Resource Department.

Company logos or trademarked items may not be used without prior written authorization from
the company.


You may not sell or promote any service or product that would directly compete with the
company without written permission.


The contents of your blog or website should always treat the company and its employees and
customers with respect. No name calling or negative behavior that will reflect onto the company
will be tolerated. Unfounded accusations, name calling or using trademarks or logos without
company permission are grounds for dismissal.

You must consider the privacy rights of your fellow employees. If you are choosing to write
about them you should obtain their permission prior to ensure you are not infringing on their
right of privacy.


You are legally liable for anything you write online. Anything that infringes of the rights of the
company or could cause a hostile work environment is subject to disciplinary action by the
