Successful businesses need many things, including individuals who make a choice to stand against illegal and unethical situations by conducting themselves with respect and integrity in all dealings. This person understands that the actions of each individual affect the impressions that others have of the company and that those impressions have an impact on the company’s reputation. Verifone requests that all employees, customers and vendors conduct themselves in a professional manner, with the utmost integrity and that all persons speak up to remedy any situation in which they feel the company’s values have been compromised in any way.
Verifone has established a Compliance Line, a simple, effective way to express concerns regarding any potentially unethical situation involving Verifone. The Compliance Line can be used to report concerns such as theft, fraudulent or inaccurate financial reporting, abuse of company resources, conflicts of interest, improper contact with government officials, bribery or kickbacks, import/export laws, or other issues.
Verifone considers these types of issues to be very serious and will conduct a thorough investigation of all items reported. This includes reporting all items and resolution status up to Verifone’s management team and the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors. The Compliance Line provides a confidential means of reporting concerns, and the individual contacting the Compliance Line may remain completely anonymous. A Communications Specialist, who works for an outside firm, will review the initial information reported and promptly notify the company’s Chief Compliance Officer. A tracking number will be assigned for follow-up should the caller want to gain status. Concerns may be reported to the Compliance Line by calling 1-888-719-1218 or via the Web at: https://secure.ethicspoint.com/domain/media/en/gui/35179/index.html
