NOOR send-off to Web Summit 2023

Wishing you a successful time at Web Summit 2023 in Lisbon. As a send-off, we’re gifting you a free Template AI Policy—ideal for your growing company’s needs. It might even make a great in-flight read.


About the Policy

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become an indispensable asset in the technology industry, especially for technology-driven growth companies. Its transformative capabilities offer unparalleled opportunities for innovation, efficiency and competitive advantage. However, the rapidly evolving nature of AI technologies presents both ethical and legal challenges that cannot be overlooked. For technology start-ups in particular, a well-defined AI policy is not only beneficial, but essential. It serves as a cornerstone for the responsible use of AI, protecting not only the company but also its stakeholders from potential misuse and legal complications.

This AI policy outlines the approach to using AI tools in a responsible, transparent and ethical way, covering various aspects of the company’s day-to-day business:

  • Scope and applicability: The policy outlines the ethical and responsible use of AI technologies within the organisation. It applies to employees, consultants, interns, volunteers and suppliers who have access to any AI resources.
  • Permitted and restricted use: Only AI tools on an approved “safe list” can be used for organisation purposes. The policy explicitly prohibits any illegal, unethical or harmful activity with AI tools. This includes unauthorised disclosure of sensitive data, misuse of intellectual property and compromising security.
  • Guidelines for authorised use: AI tools should be used in accordance with the organisation’s ethical principles and legal mandates. Applications include product development, automation, improving the customer experience, and sales and marketing analytics.
  • Data and privacy concerns: The policy sets out strict guidelines for the handling of confidential information and personal data. It emphasises data minimisation, user consent, and strict access controls and encryption methods. Compliance with data protection laws, such as GDPR, is also mandated for third-party AI tool providers.

This policy has been created by the legal geeks at NOOR to help you on your journey through the brave new world of AI. NOOR wishes you a safe but inspiring one.
