As ISON employees we must avoid situations where personal interests conflict, or even appear
to conflict, with the interests of the company such as refraining from giving or receiving gifts and hospitality that may be construed as bribery.

We have a zero-tolerance approach towards sexual harassment, involvement with drugs, modern slavery, human trafficking, child labour and forced labour and expect the same from
our business partners.
As an equal opportunity employer, ISON treats all employees fairly and we will conduct our business in a way which respects human rights.
Protect assets and financial integrity of the company
The protection & efficient use of company assets is the joint responsibility of all ISON
employees. Company assets include data, computers, phones and data centres. Any
involvement in dishonest financial reporting and accounting of ISON or any third party may not only entail disciplinary sanctions but also result in criminal charges.
Respect the laws of the land
ISON employees are required to comply with the laws and regulations of the countries in which we operate. However, as a multinational organization, we acknowledge that this Code of
Conduct cannot adequately cover every aspect of ethical behaviour across every geography where we do business.
We therefore call on employees to exercise ethical judgment or consult your
compliance manager and always act in compliance with applicable laws when confronted with specific situations that are not explicitly covered in this Code of Conduct.
Where this Code of Conduct conflicts with local law or regulation, the more stringent
recommendation should be applied.
