It is our policy to conduct all our business in an honest and ethical manner.
We have a responsibility to deal ethically with our customers and suppliers, employees and the general public. It is not enough to just avoid unethical conduct; we will always treat people that we come into contact with during the course of business with honesty, equality, respect and integrity.
Bribery and Corruption
Receiving gifts, hospitality, and financial incentives
All business decisions will be made impartially and fairly, and not on the basis of gifts, gratuities or hospitality offered. Neither PrimeSourceOPC, nor its employees, will solicit or receive favors, gifts, hospitality, loans (or other financial incentives) or other benefits (including services and discounts as well as material goods) from any supplier, customer or competitor which influence their judgment.
Giving gifts, hospitality, and financial incentives
