You are expected to check your pay voucher (online or paper), direct deposit receipts, or both for accuracy and are
required to report immediately to your supervisor any overpayment — including but not limited to wages, salary, payments
under the Wells Fargo Short-Term Disability Plan, incentive pay, bonuses, or Paid Time Off. Your supervisor will work with
you to make appropriate arrangements to reimburse the company. Failure to report discrepancies or to make appropriate
repayment arrangements is a violation of company policy and this Code.
Confidentiality has always been an essential part of the financial industry’s business. Wells Fargo's customers give us
private information about themselves and rightfully trust us to keep this information in confidence. Today, we have
technology that enables us to keep more information about customers than ever before. Recognizing this, Wells Fargo has
placed special emphasis on the appropriate collection, storage, and use of customer information. Moreover, Wells Fargo
has provided team members with access to computers, electronic mail, the intranet, and the internet. This access is a
privilege that carries special responsibilities. This section is about your responsibility to protect confidential and proprietary
information from release or misuse.
Your role in privacy protection is critical. As a team member, you will have access to confidential information about Wells
Fargo, its customers, team members, and vendors that you are obligated to protect from unauthorized disclosure. Such
information is intended solely for use within Wells Fargo and is limited to those with a business need to know. Confidential
information acquired by a team member through his or her employment must be held in the strictest confidence and,
except for a business reason, must never be discussed with anyone — not even family members. Such information is to be
used solely for corporate purposes and never for personal gain and may not be used to compete with Wells Fargo.
You may not access confidential information without a business purpose. You must not disclose confidential information
that you have obtained in the course of your employment to any other team member unless the other team member has a
business need to know the information for the performance of his or her duties on behalf of Wells Fargo.
Wells Fargo protects the private, personal, and proprietary information of customers, vendors, and team members.
Confidential customer information may not be disclosed to persons outside Wells Fargo except when its disclosure is
required by law or in accordance with Wells Fargo’s privacy policies and customer agreements. In addition, Wells Fargo
may have entered into a confidentiality or nondisclosure agreement to protect a third party’s confidential information and
to prevent unauthorized disclosure or use of that information. You must be careful to honor those agreements.
Furthermore, you must comply with additional policies maintained by applicable business units that restrict the flow of
confidential information between their business unit and other Wells Fargo business units that are engaged in investment
advisory or securities trading activities.
Improper release of or unauthorized access to confidential information damages our customers' trust in Wells Fargo and
can result in loss of business and even legal action. It also reflects on your ability to do your job and is a violation of
company policy and this Code.
