It is the policy of                [PROVIDE NAME OF YOUR COMPANY] to offer
credit to our customers, unless the risk of loss in extending credit is highly likely.

The company plans to extend credit and average one collection per 1000 credit
customers. The credit manager will make the final determination in extending credit and
transferring credit accounts to collections.

Credit Level

All customers will initially be given a minimum credit of $500. If a customer requests a
higher credit limit, a financial application and credit references will be required. The
company will process the information and use the company credit scoring system to
arrive at the amount of the credit line.

Collections Protocol

The collections protocol will work at follows:

        Payment 5 days late: email to customer
        Payment 7 days late: phone call to customer
        Payment past 15 days late: credit will be suspended, and letter sent to customer.
