The purpose of this policy is to ensure that all property maintained by Early Autism Services is kept in the best possible working condition and to ensure proper use of such property and Early Autism Services networks. “Property,” as the term is used in this policy, is defined as any piece of equipment, furnishing, vehicle, building or supply leased, owned, donated or otherwise in the custodial care of Early Autism Services or any person acting as its agent. No Early Autism Services client’s parent should expect any privacy on Early Autism Services premises or when using Early Autism Services property or networks, except that which is required by law. Note: Early Autism Services client’s parent(s) designated to care for such property is liable for cost of damages including stolen, lost or corrupted electronics. This contract serves as an agreement between the client’s parent and EAS to make the necessary additional payment on the client’s parent’s bill for the cost of lost, stolen, corrupted and/or damaged item caused by the client's parent/guardian. General Guidelines on the Use of Company Property
All Early Autism Services client’s parent(s) must maintain his or her home environment in an orderly fashion and follow all Early Autism Services rules to ensure its equipment’s proper use and maintenance. If an client’s parent’s misuse of Early Autism Services property damages the property, Early Autism Services reserves the right to require the client’s parent to pay all of the cost to repair or replace the property. The cost will be included on your bill. Misappropriation of Early Autism
Services property is grounds for company policy violation and possible criminal action. No client’s parent may use Early Autism Services property (including iPads, computers, laptops,
pagers, telephones, cellphones, copiers, faxes, Internet services and printers) for personal use
unless specific permission has been granted by the client’s parent’s Clinical Director. If such
permission is granted, the client’s parent will be responsible for the care and return of the loaned
property. Special care should be taken to identify any concerns regarding its condition before the
property is removed or used by the client’s parent for personal use.
Use and Dissemination of Company Information
“Information,” as the term is used in this policy, includes without limitation any information owned or used by Early Autism Services, such as: • Any company client’s parent or client lists.
• Any company database information, including addresses and telephone numbers.
• Any information from Early Autism Services client’s parent personnel files, including
client’s parent addresses, telephone numbers, employment status and wage history.
• Any photographs, videotapes and sound clips of any Early Autism Services client’s parent or client. Only those client’s parents who are authorized by Early Autism Services’ board of directors or executive team, or whose association permits them to do so, may speak on behalf of Early Autism Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, specific permission from the Early Autism Services’ board of directors or executive team will be required before any Early Autism Services client’s parent may disseminate confidential Early Autism Services information. No client’s parent may knowingly dispense such information to any outside party unless
authorization has been granted. This could include other client’s parents who do not have the
right to know such information. Any breach will be considered a violation of Early Autism
Services policy concerning confidentiality, and it may constitute a violation of state or federal
law. Monitoring of Network Communications Early Autism Services reserves the right to monitor at any time any communications that use Early Autism Services networks in any way, including data, voice mail, telephone logs, Internet use and network traffic, to determine proper use. Early Autism Services will review network communications activity and will analyze use patterns. Early Autism Services may choose to publish these data to ensure that company
resources in these areas are being used according to this policy. No client’s parent may knowingly disable any network software or system identified as a monitoring tool. Other Options Available: For EAS client’s parents in possession of iPad Only:
