CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION AND NON-DISCLOSURE POLICY

  

The protection of confidential business information, trade secrets, and proprietary information is vital to the interests and the success of the Calhoon MEBA Engineering School. Examples of confidential information include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • coursework material
  • computer processes 
  • computer programs and codes 
  • participant and employee personal information
  • academic records 
  • financial information 
  • new materials research

In addition to the definition of confidential information, any information created in any format (such as but not limited to handout materials, PowerPoint presentations, videos, graphics, CDs, and DVDs) by an employee of the CMES is considered proprietary.  Such proprietary information belongs to the CMES and will remain solely the property of the CMES beyond the term of any individual’s employment.

Improper use, disclosure of trade secrets, or confidential business information will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including legal action.

 

PROPRIETARY INTEREST DISCLOSURE POLICY
