Code of Ethics and Legal Compliance (“Code”)
Avvanz is committed to doing the right business the right way by acting honestly and fairly whilst upholding integrity, complying with laws and regulations and adhering to policies and procedures. This includes strict adherence to Personal Data Protection policies.
Avvanz expects all employees to:
- Comply with all applicable legal requirements

Avvanz will document any use of Avvanz’s assets (including cash) for transparent traceability. Accurate records are critical to meeting legal, financial, and management obligations. Avvanz employees will never misstate facts, omit critical information, or modify records or reports in any way to mislead others, or assist others in doing so.
Avvanz conducts activities in full compliance with the anti-corruption and anti-bribery laws of the country, or countries, in which we operate and with the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and United Kingdom Bribery Act (UKBA).
