Don't Engage in Improper Political Activities. Because the company's ability to participate
in political activities is constrained by federal, state and local law, all organizational
political activity must be cleared by the company's legal department.
As an organization, the company's political activities must be conducted in accordance
with applicable law. Accordingly, company employees should not use company assets
to engage in political activities without the prior review and approval of the company's
Company employees are strictly prohibited from including political contributions
on their expense accounts and must not allow company assets to be used for a political
cause, candidate or campaign. While you are free to participate in the political
process on your own time and at your own expense, if you do so, you must make clear
that you are speaking or acting on your own behalf. You must not conduct your activities
in a way which gives others the impression that you are speaking on behalf of the
company or otherwise represent the company.
If your position in the company requires you to have personal contact with governmental
entities and officials on the company's behalf, be sure that you are aware of and
understand all relevant regulatory provisions applicable to such contacts. If you
have questions about your actions, get in touch with the legal department before
