We, at Compliance Matters, will endeavor to always act with integrity, ensure ethical behavior and uphold the interest of our clients in whatever we do
Honesty and Fairness:
We shall act honestly, fairly, and in the best interests of our clients. We will serve our clients with integrity, competence, independence, objectivity, and professionalism. We are committed to promoting services honestly and competing fairly. We will avoid statements that may be misleading or promise results that we are unable to deliver.
We will offer to withdraw from a consulting assignment when we believe our objectivity or integrity may be impaired or we perceive a conflict of interest.
We shall always exercise due skill, care, and diligence in everything that we do.
We will only accept assignments for which we possess the requisite knowledge, experience, and competence to perform and to serve our clients effectively. Prior to undertaking a client assignment, we shall define in writing the scope, extent and manner in which we will undertake the assignment.
We will not disclose or permit to be disclosed, confidential information2 concerning the client. We will always protect the confidentiality of the information entrusted to us; share confidential information within the organization on a need-to-know basis and will not disclose confidential information to anyone outside the firm without authorization.
Additionally, we will fully abide by any requirements from our clients that prohibit us from providing client information to third parties (including within the organization, vendors, and subcontractors) or using it for purposes other than the performance of our services for the client.
Anti-Bribery and Corruption:
We are committed to conducting business fairly and ethically and avoiding even the perception that we would offer a bribe3 to obtain an advantage. We will never offer a bribe to influence the decision of a person acting on behalf of another organization (including clients, vendors, or government officials). At the same time, we will never accept anything of value from a person attempting to influence our professional judgment or decision making.
Safeguarding Information and Technology Assets:
We are committed to safeguarding our information technology resources (though none currently) and the confidentiality of the information that resides in those resources. We will:
• always secure our desktop/laptop computers, mobile devices, other data storage devices, and documents.
• We will protect our login credentials (e.g. user IDs, passwords, tokens) including any received from the client’s office, and will not share/use each other’s login credentials.
• not use personal email (e.g. Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.) to send, receive, or store information.
• Use the internet responsibly by accessing only those sites that contain content appropriate for the workplace.
