This Code of Business Ethics and Conduct is a guide to help employees live up to BroadVision’s high ethical standards—and their own. It summarizes many of the laws and values that BroadVision and all employees are required to live by. References in this Code to employees are intended to cover officers and, as applicable, directors.
This Code is neither a contract nor a comprehensive manual that covers every situation employees throughout the world might encounter. It is a guide that highlights key issues and identifies policies and resources to help employees reach decisions that will make BroadVision proud. These guidelines underscore BroadVision’s commitment to the highest standards of business practice and are intended to help everyone understand what is expected of all BroadVision employees.
Action by members of your immediate family, significant others or other persons who live in your household (referred to in the code as “family members”) also may potentially result in ethical issues to the extent that they involve BroadVision business. For example, acceptance of inappropriate gifts by a family member from one of our suppliers could create a conflict of interest and result in a Code violation attributable to you. Consequently, in complying with this Code, you should consider not only your own conduct, but also that of your immediate family members.
