ANTI-BRIBERY & CORRUPTION
Linxia Ltd (“Linxia”), as a company operating within the Harel Mallac Group, has a zero-tolerance stance on bribery or corruption, be it directly or through intermediaries. We do not, under any circumstances, give, offer or receive a bribe or other improper advantage for business or financial gain. We refrain from engaging in business on behalf of the Harel Mallac Group, where we - or our immediate relatives – would obtain or appear to obtain a personal advantage. Linxia also undertakes to avoid dealing with business entities known or reasonably suspected to be involved in corruption.
As proud distributors of international brands, Linxia is subject to the provisions of local anti-bribery and corruption laws and is indirectly subject to the provisions of the UK Bribery Act 2010 and the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act 1977 which have extra-territorial effect globally. We are, therefore, committed to maintaining the highest levels of legal and ethical standards in the conduct of our business and to operating in an honest and transparent way, without bribery or corruption being used to obtain any unfair advantage.
We have established an internal policy “The Anti-Bribery & Corruption Policy”, supported by training and adequate procedures and controls which apply strictly to all our employees, directors, agents, consultants, contractors and to any other person or bodies acting on behalf of the Group or with whom we do business within all countries, areas and functions in which we operate.
This, our Public Statement, is made in order to communicate to potential business partners, clients, or future employees what they can expect with regard to Linxia’s approach to Bribery and Corruption in any external engagement or relationship.
Our Zero Tolerance stance
Linxia will not condone any employee, contractor, client or any party with which it does business or who might conduct business on its behalf:
- promising or making or offering a payment, gift or hospitality with the expectation or hope that a business advantage will be received, or to reward a business advantage already given;
- accepting, requesting or agreeing to receive a payment, gift or hospitality in the expectation or belief that a business advantage will be granted, or as a reward for a business advantage already given;
- giving gratification or bribing a public official in employment or service anywhere in the world in the course of conducting business for or with Linxia;
- taking any action aimed at securing a commercial, contractual or regulatory advantage for Linxia that is unethical or results in personal monetary advantage for a Linxia employee, related individual, client or related client entity or person;
- making a facilitation payment to any individual in the course of conducting business for or with Linxia;
- making a charitable contribution knowing that there is a political interest in that charity, or where such a contribution would not be considered legal and ethical under local laws and practices.
Linxia will not knowingly conduct business or continue a business relationship where an employee, service provider, agent, reseller or contractor acts outside of our anti-bribery and corruption principles.
