SN74LVC00A: Inputs can be driven when unpowered?

Part Number: SN74LVC00A

Hello Guys,

Good day.

If the device is unpowered and for example have it on a card that gets plugged into a backplane,  then signals were driven into its inputs, would it present potential harm before the power supply for the device comes up?
