Welcome to the Business Conduct Helpline

The business conduct program, which includes the Business Conduct Policy, the Business Conduct Questionnaire and the Handbook (the "Program"), applies to all employees of the Company, its subsidiaries and affiliated companies, wherever located. No employee, at any level, is exempt from strict compliance with the Program. Failure to comply with the Program and its policies will result in disciplinary action, including, when appropriate, discharge.

To Make a Report

Except as noted below, if you have concerns about conduct which could violate or appear to violate the Program, discuss your concerns with:

  • your supervisor;
  • any member of management;
  • any member of the legal department; or
  • the Compliance Officer.

If you have concerns about conduct that could constitute unlawful harassment, discrimination or retaliation, please discuss your concerns with:

  • the Human Resources professional of your choice;
  • any member of the legal department; or
  • the Compliance Officer.

If you have concerns regarding questionable accounting or auditing matters, please report them immediately to the Compliance Officer or the:
Audit Committee Chairman
P. O. Box 385014
Birmingham, Alabama 35238-5014

If you are uncomfortable raising your concerns with any of these people, please submit a report via this website or call the Company Helpline.

Non-Retaliation

No employee using the Helpline will be punished for making a legitimate report. If you request it, you may remain anonymous and your report will be kept confidential to the extent permitted by law and consistent with enforcement objectives.
