Our electronic communication systems, such as internet access, email, voice mail and telephone services, are essential tools that support our business. We must use our systems consistent with our RISE values of Respect Integrity, Service and Excellence. These systems are to be used primarily for Company business. While you may use the Company's systems for incidental or occasional personal use, you must recognize that you are not permitted to do so in any manner that may disrupt your or anyone else's job performance or is otherwise offensive or contrary to our RISE values or other Company policies in any manner. Our policies that govern how our systems are to be used reinforce these guidelines and give CBRE the right to monitor your use of our systems and to block, intercept or review any content or communications that occur on or are stored in our systems. Your personal privacy is not protected on our systems, and you should not expect it to be.
During the last several years, the use of email and other messaging technologies has fundamentally transformed communications. However, the ease with which these technologies can be used increases the risk of poor communication or misuse. Thus, we should compose our emails and other electronic messages with the same care taken in composing any other written document. These messages can be permanent and can be easily copied and forwarded worldwide without your knowledge or permission. At worst, messages that advance personal or political views, or contain derogatory, profane, explicit or offensive content could be attributed to CBRE and degrade our brand or cause liability.
