Employees must never take unfair advantage of others through manipulation, concealment, abuse of privileged information, misrepresentation of material facts, or any other unfair dealing practice.

While the Company competes vigorously in all of its business activities, its efforts in the marketplace must be conducted in accordance with all applicable competition laws.

One of the primary goals of the competition laws is to promote and preserve each competitor’s independence when making decisions on price, output, and other competitively sensitive factors. Some of the most serious competition offenses are agreements between competitors that limit independent judgment and restrain trade, such as agreements to fix prices, restrict output or control the quality of products, or to divide a market for clients, territories, products or purchases. You should not agree with any competitor on any of these topics, as these agreements are virtually always unlawful (in other words, no excuse will absolve you or the Company of liability).

Any communication with a competitor’s representative may later be subject to legal scrutiny and form the basis for accusations of improper or illegal conduct. You should take care to avoid involving yourself in situations from which an unlawful agreement could be inferred.

The competition laws are extremely complex. Because competition lawsuits can be very costly, even when a company has not violated the competition laws and is cleared in the end, it is important to consult with the Legal Department before engaging in any conduct that even appears to create the basis for an allegation of wrongdoing.
