Conex employees may offer existing or potential customers or partners gifts, meals or a form of entertainment, as long as they are not excessive or inappropriate.
Our business decisions are always made on the basis of merit. We will therefore never offer a representative of a (potential) customer anything of value in order to influence that representative’s decision.
