Proper Use of
P&G Assets

You must safeguard P&G’s proprietary information and data, as well as the technologies (such as computer systems and applications) this information is stored on, from damage, alteration, theft, fraud and unauthorized access. To achieve this goal, you must follow the specific security measures and internal controls in place for the systems to which you have access. Only use P&G approved communication technologies. Follow Company guidance concerning limited use of messaging apps. The field of artificial intelligence (“AI”) continues to advance, bringing new technologies and new regulations.
