  • Participate in political activities on our own time and using our own resources.
  • Do not use company funds for personal political contributions.
  • Avoid partisan political activities at work.
  • Do not engage in lobbying related to company interests unless previously approved by Marathon Oil’s CEO, General Counsel, or VP of Government Affairs.
