Confidentiality agreement

All personal information concerning donors, members, volunteers, staff, contractors and other constituents, and financial data and business records of CWVC is confidential. 

“Confidential” means that you are free to talk about CWVC and about your work and your position, but not to share or use private information other for than the purposes that they were collected, in service of the mission of CWVC. No confidential information may be released without appropriate authorization from the board of directors, unless required by law. 

General information, policy statements or statistical material that is not identified with any individual is not classified as confidential. Publicly available personal information (for example, the email address listed on a politician’s website) is also not considered confidential.

Care shall be taken to ensure that unauthorized individuals do not overhear any discussion of confidential information and that documents containing confidential information are not left in the open or inadvertently shared. 

Confidential information must be kept confidential both during and after employment or volunteer service. Staff and volunteers, including board members, are expected to return materials containing privileged or confidential information at the time of separation from employment or expiration of service. 

I have read the above confidential agreement. I agree to follow these requirements and inform the chair of the board of directors if I believe any violation (unintentional or otherwise) of the policy has occurred. I understand that violation of this policy will lead to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of my service with CWVC.
