Partner Code of Conduct and Business Ethics
By Catalin Teodor-Oracle on Jan 24, 2013
Oracle is committed to maintaining high standards of business ethics and complying with applicable law, and expects the same commitment from the systems integrators, developers, distributors, resellers, and others admitted to the Oracle PartnerNetwork (“OPN”).
We want to take this opportunity to remind all of our partners of the important ethical and legal obligations that must be abided by when doing business as an OPN member.
Every OPN member is obligated to comply with the Oracle Partner Code of Conduct and Business Ethics(“Code”).
The Code, the OPN agreements, Oracle ordering and other documents prohibit our partner companies, their owners, directors, officers, employees, resellers and agents from making or promising to make payments of money or anything of value, directly or indirectly, to any official (regardless of rank) of a government or public international organization, to political parties or candidates for political office, or to any officer, company director or employee of a private-sector customer or supplier, for the purpose of obtaining or retaining business or securing any improper advantage.
In addition, our partners must comply with all other applicable laws, rules and regulations applicable to their business, wherever conducted, including those that further restrict or prohibit the provision of gifts, meals, entertainment and anything else of value to government officials or employees of private-sector companies. OPN members are also obliged to comply with Oracle policy and business practices.
