    Build Trust and Reputation

    The success of our business is dependent on the trust and confidence we earn from our community members, partners and colleagues. We gain reputation by adhering to our commitments, displaying honesty and integrity and reaching our goals solely through honorable conduct. It is easy to say what we must do, but the proof is in our actions. Ultimately, we will be judged on what we do.

    Respect for the Individual

    We all deserve to work in an environment where we are treated with dignity and respect.The Sexperts Business Community is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the full potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to our members and thus business success. We cannot afford to let anyone’s talents go to waste.

    Create a Culture of Authenticity

    Any unethical behavior between community members or towards the Sexperts Business Community’s staff will not be tolerated.

    Set Tone at the Top

    Management has the added responsibility for demonstrating, through their actions, the importance of this Code. In any business, ethical behavior does not simply happen; it is the product of clear and direct communication of behavioral expectations, modeled from the top and demonstrated by example. Again, ultimately, our actions are what matters.

    To make our Code work, managers must be responsible for promptly addressing ethical questions or concerns raised by employees and for taking the appropriate steps to deal with such issues. Managers should not consider employees’ ethics concerns as threats or challenges to their authority, but rather as another encouraged form of business communication. At the Sexperts Business Community, we want the ethics dialogue to become a natural part of daily work.

    Uphold the Law

    The Sexperts Business Community’s commitment to integrity begins with complying with laws, rules and regulations where we do business. Further, each of us must have an understanding of the company policies, laws, rules and regulations that apply to our specific roles. If we are unsure of whether a contemplated action is permitted by law or our policy, we should seek the advice from the resource expert. We are responsible for preventing violations of law and for speaking up if we see possible violations.


    Competition

    We are dedicated to ethical, fair and vigorous competition. We will sell our products or services based on their merit, superior quality, functionality and competitive pricing. We will make independent pricing and marketing decisions and will not improperly cooperate or coordinate our activities with our competitors. We will not offer or solicit improper payments or gratuities in connection with the purchase of goods or services for the Sexperts Business Community or the sales of its products or services, nor will we engage or assist in unlawful boycotts of particular customers.

    Proprietary Information

    It is important that we respect the property rights of others. We will not acquire or seek to acquire improper means of a competitor’s trade secrets or other proprietary or confidential information. We will not engage in unauthorized use, copying, distribution or alteration of software or other intellectual property.

    Selective Disclosure

    We will not selectively disclose (whether in one-on-one or small discussions, meetings, presentations, proposals or otherwise) any material nonpublic information with respect to the Sexperts Business Community, its securities, business operations, plans, financial condition, results of operations or any development plan. We should be particularly vigilant when making presentations or proposals to customers to ensure that our presentations do not contain material nonpublic information.

    Avoid Conflicts of Interest

    Conflicts of Interest

    We must avoid any relationship or activity that might impair, or even appear to impair, our ability to make objective and fair decisions when performing our jobs. At times, we may be faced with situations where the business actions we take on behalf of the Sexperts Business Community may conflict with our own personal or family interests. We owe a duty to the Sexperts Business Community to advance its legitimate interests when the opportunity to do so arises. We must never use the Sexperts Business Community property or information for personal gain or personally take for ourselves any opportunity that is discovered through our position with the Sexperts Business Community.

    Promote Substance Over Form

    At times, we are all faced with decisions we would rather not have to make and issues we would prefer to avoid. Sometimes, we hope that if we avoid confronting a problem, it will simply go away.

    At the Sexperts Business Community, we must have the courage to tackle the tough decisions and make difficult choices, secure in the knowledge that the Sexperts Business Community is committed to doing the right thing. At times this will mean doing more than simply what the law requires. Merely because we can pursue a course of action does not mean we should do so.

    Although the Sexperts Business Community’s guiding principles cannot address every issue or provide answers to every dilemma, they can define the spirit in which we intend to do business and should guide us in our daily conduct.

    Accountability

    Each of us is responsible for knowing and adhering to the values and standards set forth in this Code and for raising questions if we are uncertain about company policy. If we are concerned whether the standards are being met or are aware of violations of the Code, we will address it.

    The Sexperts Business Community takes seriously the standards set forth in the Code, and measures and actions are taken to adhere to it.

    Be Loyal

    Confidential and Proprietary Information

    Integral to the Sexperts Business Community’s business success is our protection of confidential company information, as well as nonpublic information entrusted to us by employees, customers and other business partners. Confidential and proprietary information includes such things as pricing and financial data, customer names/addresses or nonpublic information about other companies, including current or potential suppliers and vendors. We will not disclose confidential and nonpublic information without a valid business purpose and proper authorization.

    Use of Company Resources

    Company resources, including time, material, equipment and information, are provided for company business use. Nonetheless, occasional personal use is permissible as long as it does not affect job performance or cause a disruption to the workplace.

    Employees and those who represent the Sexperts Business Community are trusted to behave responsibly and use good judgment to conserve company resources.
