The Confidentiality Policy for Volunteers of Manna Food Bank, Inc.: (a) defines confidential information; and (b) specifies procedures to be followed in managing confidential information.
Definition of confidential information.
Confidential information includes, without limitations, MANNA’s business records, and plans, debate and deliberations, meeting minutes, proposals, criteria or decisions made with regard to the business of MANNA, financial statements, any information concerning MANNA’s current or former clients, donors, volunteers, personnel, policies and procedures, and/or any technical information, computer programs and databases, copyright, and other intellectual property and proprietary information of MANNA. Confidentiality in all cases shall be maintained.
Specifies procedures to be followed in managing confidential information.
It is the policy of MANNA that such information must be kept confidential both during and after employment or volunteer service. Upon request of the Executive Committee of the BOD, staff and volunteers, including BOD members, will return material containing privileged or confidential information at the time of separation from employment or expiration of service.
Unauthorized disclosure of confidential or privileged information is a serious violation of this Policy and will subject the person(s) who made the unauthorized disclosure to appropriate discipline, including possible removal/dismissal as determined by the ED and/or Executive Committee of the BOD.
Since confidential information is crucial to the operation of the organization, and because MANNA has the obligation to protect such information, I agree that I will not use, publish or disclose such information during or subsequent to my time volunteering, and that I will preserve the restricted nature of this information except to the extent that it becomes publicly available, or is otherwise lawfully obtained outside the scope of this agreement from third parties.
I hereby certify that I have read, understand and agree to MANNA’s Confidentiality policy as documented above
