No officer, employee or representative of Daaken may, directly or indirectly, offer or provide a bribe and all demands for bribes must be expressly rejected.
Bribery includes any offer, promise, or gift of any pecuniary or other advantage, whether directly or through intermediaries, to a public official, political party, political candidate or party official or any private sector employee, in order that the official or employee act or refrain from acting in relation to the performance of their duties, in order to obtain or retain business or other business advantage.
Daaken and its officers, employees and representatives shall not offer or make facilitating payments to government officials in order to encourage them to expedite a routine governmental task that they are otherwise required to undertake. Daaken shall have discretion to deviate from this prohibition if the government action sought is an urgent matter concerning health or safety. Daaken recognizes that extortion is widespread and that participation by the business community increases demand for facilitating payments.
