Conflicts of Interest
We conduct our business affairs in the best interest of our Company and should therefore avoid situations where our private interests interfere in any way with our Company's interests. We need to be especially sensitive to situations that have even the appearance of impropriety and promptly report them to a supervisor, or if appropriate, a more senior manager. If you believe that a transaction, relationship or other circumstance creates or may create a conflict of interest, you should promptly report this concern. It is our policy that circumstances that pose a conflict of interest for our employees are prohibited unless a waiver is obtained from our Compliance Officer. Consistent with the Nasdaq rules, and as further described below, any waiver of this conflict of interest policy for a director or executive officer may only be made by our Board of Directors or an authorized committee of our Board, and any such waiver should be appropriately disclosed in a report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") within five days of the waiver.
