3Dbgprint (3DBGPRINT Ltd) (hereinafter referred to as the ‘Company’) is committed to maintaining high ethical standards and extending the integrity of its business practices to any part of the world. The company will not resort or be open to bribery and/or corruption.
The purpose of this document is to outline the policy of the Company with regard to bribes and corruption. This policy applies directly to all employees, directors, agents, consultants, entrepreneurs, and other persons or bodies related to the Company in any region, area, or function.
It is important that you read and understand this document, and act in compliance with the policy set out in it.
According to the various globally accepted anti-corruption regulations, it is illegal to proffer money or any other similar assets (such as gifts, business lunches, dinners, or entertainment) to individuals for the purposes of starting or keeping certain business relations, or to secure any unlawful benefits. These regulations, however, do not preclude any reasonable or customary business gifts, food, or entertainment.
Any excessively generous gifts or hospitality, both offered and received, are regarded as unacceptable, because they may give the impression that the Company is trying to create or receive an advantageous business relationship by providing personal benefits to certain individuals. In addition, any gifts and hospitality may in and of themselves be considered bribery. Make sure that all gifts and hospitality are consistent with the customary and reasonable purposes involved in the ordinary business of the Company.
The Company will not make or receive any payments or bribes aimed at mitigating the existing circumstances. If you are authorised to make a payment on behalf of the Company, you should always be aware of the actual reason for the payment and make sure that the requested amount is consistent with the goods or services which have been provided. You should always demand a receipt specifying the reason for the payment. If you have any doubts, concerns, or questions about a payment, you should refer them to your manager.
All workers must avoid any activities that may lead to a payment of this kind or for which they have reason to suspect a payment will be made or received by the Company.
Conflict of interests
The employees of the Company must avoid any situations or transactions where their personal interests may be in conflict with each other or where they may be in conflict with the interests of the Company. This includes the use for personal benefit of any information about customers and their relations with the Company; disclosure of such information to third parties; or acting in a way that may be interpreted as insider dealing.
Conflict of interests may arise when the employees have personal interests in business transactions related to the Company. Such personal interests may be direct or indirect, and may refer not only to the interests of the employee, but also to those of the members of his/her family, or his/her friends. If there is any possibility of a conflict of interests, the interests of the company will prevail. The employees must disclose any personal conflict of interests or any presumed conflict of interests to their direct supervisor.
The company keeps financial records and conducts appropriate internal audits to certify the business reasons for the payments it makes to third parties.
All accounts, invoices, and other documents and records related to its relations with third parties, such as customers, suppliers, and business contacts, must be prepared and maintained with accuracy and completeness.
