Code of Conduct
As a company, we aspire to long-term business relationships with our customers, partners and suppliers. Moreover, our aim is to create an atmosphere in which our employees feel at ease. In order to achieve this, we act in accordance with the following Code of Conduct. This encompasses the values and voluntary self-commitment that all our employees are responsible for putting into practice.
Fair competition and dealing openly with customers, partners and suppliers are high priorities for us. We therefore always act with honesty and integrity. We comply with applicable laws and other relevant regulations in all our activities both in Germany and abroad. We expect our customers, partners and suppliers to do the same.
Conflicts of Interest
Our employees always have the company’s interests in mind and act accordingly. Where the company’s interests disadvantage them personally, they are obliged to act in good faith. Such conflicts of interest should be avoided wherever possible. Should employees find themselves in such a situation, they must disclose it immediately. We will work together to find a good solution that is practicable for all parties.
Corruption, Gifts and Other Benefits
We categorically oppose all forms of corruption, bribery and extortion. Employees who allow themselves to be influenced by dishonest practices by customers or suppliers, or who use such practices in an attempt to influence others, will therefore consistently face disciplinary consequences. If a supplier or customer attempts to influence an employee’s decision making using dishonest methods, the employee must report this to the management immediately. Employees may keep prizes won in competitions at industry events, provided the draw was held in public and any favouritism ruled out. Our employees may accept gifts from customers, partners and suppliers, provided these do not exceed a value of €40/year.
Fair Working Conditions
As an employer, we strive to provide our employees with attractive workplaces that benefit from a continuous process of improvement. The basis for this is a safe and healthy working environment. Employees therefore have an active responsibility in helping to ensure that their areas are a safe and healthy place to work. Every employee is also obliged to comply with all guidelines and regulations. We maintain an open culture of feedback in which criticism and ideas can be shared in a non-judgemental environment. Everyone is an individual and will be treated with respect. We distance ourselves from every form of discrimination or harassment. Such behaviour will be punished with direct disciplinary action.
Confidentiality and Data Protection
Our employees have a duty to maintain confidentiality. This applies particularly in respect of intellectual property such as business secrets, source codes, copyrights, business and marketing plans, salary information and all financial and personal data not intended for disclosure. Employees must also exercise due diligence and are required to comply with the Federal Data Protection Act in all their business activities.
