Vendors must ensure that their employees, agents, subcontractors, and affiliates comply with all applicable bribery and anti-corruption laws, including but not limited to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) and the UK Bribery Act. To that end, Vendors must not promise, offer, or accept bribes, kickbacks, or other improper or unlawful payments or engage third parties to facilitate such conduct when conducting business with or on behalf of QOUPONZ.COM. Examples include cash, cash equivalents (such as gift cards of any denomination), gifts, services, or other inducements intended to secure an improper business advantage. This requirement applies in all circumstances, but especially with respect to dealings involving government officials, political candidates, or other public figures or entities.
Books, Records, and Business Integrity. QOUPONZ.COM prohibits corruption, extortion, and embezzlement in any form. For this reason, Vendors must ensure that their accounting and financial records related to their business with QOUPONZ.COM comply with applicable laws and meet applicable standards of accuracy and completeness. QOUPONZ.COM also expects Vendors to provide honest and accurate invoices. Invoices should be itemized, quote the Purchase Order (“PO”) number (if applicable), be supported by appropriate documentation, and comply with all other requirements as set out in the relevant contract(s). Invoices may not be split to circumvent approval requirements. QOUPONZ.COM will not do business with a Vendor unless there is a signed contract and an approved PO (if required) on file.
Facilitating Payments. Vendors must not offer or make facilitating payments (also known as “expediting” or “grease” payments) to speed up or secure the performance of a routine government action (e.g., visa processing or customs clearance) on behalf of QOUPONZ.COM. QOUPONZ.COM’s Anti-Corruption Policy prohibits facilitating payments and many countries treat them as illegal bribes. This requirement applies to all business conducted on QOUPONZ.COM’s behalf, regardless of any contrary local customs.
Business Courtesies. Vendors must avoid offering gifts, meals, entertainment, or travel (collectively “Business Courtesies”) that might improperly influence, or appear to influence, QOUPONZ.COM employees or agents, or that might embarrass QOUPONZ.COM or the Vendor. Vendors should never feel obligated to provide Business Courtesies to any QOUPONZ.COM employee or agent, even if the Business Courtesies have only nominal value. If a Vendor wishes to provide Business Courtesies to a QOUPONZ.COM employee or agent, the Business Courtesies must comply with applicable laws and the following guidelines:
- Acceptable: Gifts that are given infrequently and that are not of substantial value, such as food items or promotional materials bearing the Vendor’s logo (e.g., shirts, hats, pens, etc.).
- Unacceptable: Cash, cash equivalents (such as gift cards of any denomination), or any items with a value exceeding USD $350.00.
- Business Courtesies given to QOUPONZ.COM employees or agents that do not comply with these guidelines will be returned to the Vendor and/or Merchant or disposed of accordingly. Perishable items may be donated to our teams and/or to charity or to our charity Say Her Name
