Every staff member is expected to read these rules carefully and abide by them. All of our employees are subjected to complying with all aspects of this policy. All new members are required to read this policy before taking on their positions. The matters addressed in this code are important, so any violation of rules within the areas covered below is considered serious enough to require disciplinary punishments, including dismissal from the position depending on the severity of the violation.
A team member that has a question or is violating any part of this policy or has witnessed another employee doing so, should contact his/her supervisor immediately. All inquiries in this aspect are going to be kept discreet in order to protect the personal rights of team members.
Writers who cover news should not play the market, meaning they can not conduct in any kind of estimations with personal interest or information. This could create exploitation of information that is not publicly declared. Team members who contribute to TaxBot covering similar subjects are also subjected to this rule.
Only employees in the sales and marketing departments are allowed to make deals with third parties on behalf of TaxBot. It is not allowed for anyone other than employees in the sales and marketing department to make deals using the company name in return for promotions/links, etc. TaxBot team members, aside from freelancers, can not be associated with media channels other than our own for as long as they are associated with our company.
