Political Contributions Policy

NeuStar, Inc. (the “Company”) does not use Company funds to make contributions to candidates for public office, candidate campaign funds, political parties, political action committees or groups organized under IRS Section 527. Our prohibition against the use of corporate funds for political contributions applies even where such contributions are permitted by law. This policy is reflected in our Code of Business Conduct in the section on “Working with Governments and Internationally”.

Employees are free to participate in the political process as they choose on their own time as individuals and not as representatives of the Company. The Company will not reimburse or compensate employees for political contributions of any kind, including:

  • Contributions to political candidates, candidate campaign funds, or political parties
  • Contributions used to support the election of candidates for public office, through political action committees, groups organized under IRS Section 527, or independent expenditures
  • Time volunteered to support a political campaign or candidate for public office
  • The Company does not have a political action committee

Use of Company Resources

As an extension of our policy prohibiting corporate political contributions, we do not allow the use of Company time, resources, or facilities to support any political campaign on behalf of a candidate for public office. As a narrow exception, we permit our employees to use our computers and communication systems for reasonable, personal use, which may include the incidental use of such resources for personal political activity.


We may spend money, time and effort to support or advocate particular viewpoints on public policy issues, including engaging third parties to advocate on our behalf. Further, employees may spend time communicating our position to public officials. Any such advocacy involving expenditures, time or effort will be done in accordance with applicable law and requires the prior approval of our General Counsel.

Trade Associations

The Company belongs to several trade associations to which we pay regular dues which may also engage in lobbying activities. We do not make additional payments to any trade associations to fund their political expenditures and we do not direct any political expenditures they might make.
