As a volunteer, intern, fellow, or independent contractor supporting Second Harvest of Silicon Valley, I may be exposed to sensitive information. I understand that, during the course of my involvement with Second Harvest assisting in Food Connection, Cal Fresh outreach, or other Second Harvest departments or programs, I may have access to sensitive personal and private information about individual clients and their families, and about donors. Such information includes, but is not limited to, names, addresses, social security numbers, incomes, personal situations, and credit card information.
I understand and share Second Harvest’s commitment to individual and family privacy, dignity, and respect. At all times during and after my participation in Second Harvest programs, I will keep any information I learn when working at Second Harvest confidential, except as may be required in my role as a volunteer, intern, fellow, or independent contractor, or as expressly authorized in writing by the Chief Executive Officer of Second Harvest. Confidential information includes all information obtained in the course of my relationship with Second Harvest, whether through written records, both physical and electronic, or personal interaction.
I will store or dispose of records in accordance with Second Harvest policy, as directed by my supervisor. At the end of my participation as a volunteer, intern, fellow, or independent contractor, or upon Second Harvest’s request at any other time, I will deliver to Second Harvest all of Second Harvest’s property, equipment, and documents, together with all copies, regardless of whether such property contains confidential information.
I understand that violation of this confidentiality agreement may subject me to immediate termination of my assignment as a volunteer, intern, fellow, or independent contractor and any other civil and equitable remedies Second Harvest may have.
