DATA SECURITY & PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION POLICY
Employees shall use their best efforts to protect and safeguard Personal Information in accordance with Staffmark’s security procedures and practices. Accordingly, employees shall (i) not use any Personal Information for their own use or for any purpose other than for providing services to Staffmark as specifically authorized by Staffmark; (ii) not disclose any Personal Information to any person or entity except as approved in advance in writing by Staffmark, which approval will be subject to Staffmark’s sole and absolute discretion; (iii) use their best efforts to protect the security of Personal Information in order to prevent unauthorized access and exfiltration, theft, or disclosure of Personal Information, which efforts shall at a minimum include no less than a reasonable degree of care; (iv) not sell, transfer, or in any manner disclose or give access to, Personal Information, in whole or in part, to any third party without the prior written approval of Staffmark, which approval will be subject to Staffmark’s sole and absolute discretion; and (v) notify Staffmark in writing of any misuse or any unauthorized access and exfiltration, theft, or disclosure of Personal Information which may come to their attention.
Staffmark prohibits the unauthorized use, access and exfiltration, theft, or disclosure of Personal Information and, therefore, any unauthorized use, access, disclosure, or inducement of Staffmark to disclose any Personal Information by employees without authorization is conduct outside the scope and course of their employment with Staffmark and is contrary to their duties and obligations to Staffmark. Violations of this policy may lead to disciplinary action up to and including termination.
