The next generation will make the connected world even more amazing. That’s why Neustar supports science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.
What can we give employees so they can give back to their communities? Paid time off to volunteer and matching gifts to worthy causes.
We embrace policies that maintain a fair, equitable, and safe workplace.
From energy-efficient buildings, including data centers, to “green teams” and more we’re doing our part for the planet.
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:
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.
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.
To be the single most trusted source of commercial insight and analytics, every Neustar director, officer and employee must help us maintain a culture of trust, respect and collaboration.
As Neustar continues to evolve, enter new markets and grow existing ones, what we do and how we do it is increasingly important to our customers, partners, investors and fellow employees. New and difficult issues will arise, and this code is intended to provide guidance about how to respond. In these situations, the code is intended to help reduce confusion and eliminate roadblocks so we can continue to be productive in our work.
The Code of Business Ethics serves as the framework within which we manage our business and as a reminder that respect for our work and colleagues, professionalism inside and outside the company, and the drive to achieve both excellence and integrity are essential to our continued success.
Knowing the code helps to foster an open environment at Neustar. Every director, officer, employee, and contractor is encouraged to ask questions and promptly report all concerns. Only by identifying concerns can we become better informed and improve as an organization. Please take the time to read the code and become familiar with it. Think about what these requirements mean to you in your work and incorporate them into your daily activities.
The code is a key tool in helping us fulfill our goals, and we all must comply with it. I ask that you actively use it as the framework on which we build Neustar’s culture as one of trust, respect, and collaboration.
Sincerely, Charles E. Gottdiener
