Not to solicit or raise any gifts, funding, services or rewards from the Company's business counterparties or any subordinates.
Gifts providing or receiving on conventional occasions must have the average value expected of an ordinary gift. If the value of a gift is considerable, the recipient must report the gift to the supervisor.
For providing or receiving other kinds of interests, such as entertainment services, the services must not constitute a significant expense or be offered or gave too often.
