We only want to work with Distributors, Resellers, suppliers and others in our supply chain who also take their responsibilities in these areas seriously. This document sets out clearly what we expect from the Third Parties we deal with and non-compliance may adversely affect your commercial relationship with us. This is in addition to and not in lieu of any legal agreement or contract, and may be amended from time to time by us and you will be expected to comply with any further revisions issued.
