Code of Ethics

Vallantis conducts its business honestly and ethically wherever we operate in the world. We constantly improve the quality of our solutions and operations and create a reputation for professionalism, trust, fairness, respect, integrity and sound business judgment. No illegal or unethical conduct on the part of directors, employees or affiliates is in the company’s best interest. Vallantis will not compromise its principles for short-term advantage. We are all expected to adhere to high standards of personal integrity.

Directors and employees of the company must never permit their personal interests to conflict, or appear to conflict, with the interests of the company, its clients or affiliates. Directors and employees shall avoid using their company contacts to advance their private business or personal interests at the expense of the company, its clients or affiliates.

Directors and employees of Vallantis shall not give bribes, expensive gifts or other similar remuneration to any person or organization in order to influence business decisions.

Directors and employees of Vallantis shall not engage in theft, fraud, deliberate misinformation, and all forms of illegalities harmful to the reputation of the company and/or the wellbeing of its stakeholders.

Directors and employees of Vallantis will often come into contact with, or have possession of confidential or business-sensitive information and must take appropriate steps to assure that such information is strictly safeguarded. This information – whether it is on behalf of our company or any of our clients or affiliates – could include passwords, electronic data, business plans, financial results, marketing strategies, customer lists, personnel records, processes and methods. Confidential and sensitive business information about this company, other companies, individuals and entities should be treated with sensitivity and discretion and only be disseminated on a need-to-know basis.

Until the material information has been publicly released by the company, an employee must not disclose it to anyone except those within the company whose positions require use of the information.

Directors and employees will seek to report all information accurately and honestly, and as otherwise required by applicable reporting requirements.

Directors and employees will refrain from gathering competitor intelligence by illegitimate means and refrain from acting on knowledge which has been gathered in such a manner. The directors and employees of Vallantis will seek to avoid exaggerating or disparaging comparisons of the services and competence of their competitors.

Directors and employees will strive to comply with all applicable state laws and act with respect and responsibility towards others in all of their dealings.

Directors and employees will remain personally balanced so that their personal life will not interfere with their job performance to the company and its clients.

Directors and employees agree to disclose unethical, dishonest, fraudulent and illegal behavior, or the violation of company policies and procedures, directly to management.

Violation of this Code of Ethics can result in discipline, including possible termination. The degree of discipline relates in part to whether there was a voluntary disclosure of any ethical violation and whether or not the violator cooperated in any subsequent investigation.

Remember that good ethics is good business.
