It is the policy of Pheo Para Alliance that board members, employees, and volunteers of Pheo Para Alliance may not disclose, divulge, or make accessible confidential information belonging to, or obtained through their affiliation with Pheo Para Alliance to any person, including relatives, friends and business and professional associates, other than to persons who have a legitimate need for such information and to whom Pheo Para Alliance has authorized disclosure. Board members, employees, and volunteers shall use confidential information solely for the purpose of performing services as a board member, employee, or volunteer for Pheo Para Alliance. This policy is not intended to prevent disclosure where disclosure is required by law. Board members, employees, and volunteers must exercise good judgment and care at all times to avoid unauthorized or improper disclosures of confidential information. Conversations in public places, such as restaurants, elevators, and airplanes, should be limited to matters that do not pertain to information of a sensitive or confidential nature. In addition, board members, employees, and volunteers should be sensitive to the risk of inadvertent disclosure and should for example, refrain from leaving confidential information on desks or otherwise in plain view and refrain from the use of speakerphones to discuss confidential information if the conversation could be heard by unauthorized persons. At the end of a board member’s term in office or upon the termination of an employee’s employment or volunteer’s time of service, he or she shall return, at the request of Pheo Para Alliance, all documents, papers, and other materials, regardless of medium, that may contain or be derived from confidential information in his or her possession. Failure to adhere to this policy will result in discipline, up to and including separation of employment or volunteer or board service with Pheo Para Alliance.
