I further understand that I will be called upon to evaluate such information, in part, by the application of laws, regulations, and policies, as well as policies of this organization, to the information which I receive. I understand that my position as a member of this committee is one which demands the highest trust and that the organization’s policies and procedures, as well as, in some instances, specific statutes, regulations, and governmental policies, protect the confidentiality of certain records and information which I will be reviewing by prohibiting their disclosure in any manner. In addition to any duty of confidentiality or non-disclosure imposed on me by specific statutes, regulations, and governmental policies, I agree to keep secret, and not to disclose to others nor make any personal use of whatsoever, either during my service on said committee or at any time thereafter, of any said confidential information and to hold any such documents and/or information, regardless of nature, in strictest confidence. I understand that any violation of this confidentiality statement will subject me to disciplinary action, up to and including removal from this committee and/or termination of employment. I further understand that my duty to maintain the information in confidence imposed hereunder shall survive my resignation or termination from this committee or my termination of employment for whatever reason from this organization.
