It establishes the policy that the use of such tools for content writing on behalf of clients is strictly prohibited, and violations may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.
The purpose of this guideline is to ensure the protection of client interests, maintain the quality and integrity of content, and safeguard the reputation of cmlabs.

Prohibited Use of Generative AI Tools
Content Creation for Clients
Employees are strictly prohibited from using Generative AI Tools to create the whole content on behalf of clients. Content generated by AI tools lacks the human touch, originality, and creative judgment necessary to produce high-quality and personalized work. Instead, employees are expected to rely on their expertise, knowledge, and professional skills to deliver unique and tailored content.
The use of Generative AI Tools may pose a risk of copyright infringement, as these tools generate content based on existing works, datasets, and models. Unauthorized use of copyrighted material is strictly prohibited, and employees are expected to respect and adhere to copyright laws and intellectual property rights.
Quality Control and Accountability
By employing Generative AI Tools for content creation, employees may relinquish control over the accuracy, reliability, and overall quality of the output. Content generated by AI tools can lack context, relevance, and the ability to comprehend nuanced requirements. Employees are responsible for maintaining the highest standards of quality, ensuring content meets client expectations, and upholding the reputation of cmlabs.
