Gifts and Entertainment Policy
Georgeson’s Employee Handbook contains a Gifts and Entertainment Policy. Employees and Directors are not permitted to receive gifts with a value of over $100 from vendors or suppliers or give gifts to clients with a value in excess of $100 without prior written approval. Additionally, under no circumstances is a gift of cash or other form of “money” (e.g., gift voucher, check) allowed. Employees and Directors may accept meals and entertainment where business is conducted, including vendor/supplier sponsored dinners, recreational, sporting or theatrical events, that are of reasonable value considering the nature and frequency of occasion (e.g., annual tennis tournament, motor racing, etc.).
All Gifts & Entertainment received and or given above $100 are required to be entered within a Register. Staff must complete the relevant fields including sufficient detail to allow the request to be reviewed and then submitted for approval. Depending upon the estimated value of the submission, it will be either be sent to a Line Manager or Regional President. The Approver then has the option of accepting, rejecting, or reassigning the submission.
The giving and receiving of Gifts and Entertainment can build goodwill in business relationships, but some Gifts and Entertainment can create improper influence (or the appearance of improper influence). Some gifts can even be seen as bribes that tarnish Georgeson’s reputation for fair dealing or break the law. The Code of Ethics policy applies to Georgeson and its employees. It is vital that all staff who handle personal information understand the fundamental principles and the practical requirements for complying with the ethics rules.

What is a Cookie and where can I get more information about Cookies?
A cookie is a small bit of text that the server asks permission to store on your computer's hard drive. If you agree, your browser adds the text in a small file. With Microsoft Internet Explorer, each cookie is stored in a separate file, and with Netscape Navigator the cookies are all stored in one file. This cookie allows the web server to store information about your current session.
Cookies are harmless, occupying just a few bytes in a text file on your hard drive. Cookies can be read only by the site that posted them. They only contain information you have already given to the site. They CANNOT search your system for any information, nor can they contain viruses.
Cookies cannot be stolen - Part of the information contained in a cookie is the identity of the server it can be sent to. It can be sent to that server, and to no other.

What security precautions are in place to protect my personal information?
You are required to authenticate yourself by providing some security details before you may access any sensitive information. Multiple incorrect attempts at validation result in a lockout from the information.
Once your details have been validated all data sent between the web server and your browser (and back again) is encrypted using the industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. This means that it is virtually impossible for anyone intercepting the data (as it travels between the web server and your web browser) to decipher the data and work out what it means. This is the same encryption used to transmit Credit Cards, etc, over the internet when buying merchandise online.
