Personal Data and Privacy
You acknowledge that Gigamon engages a Program Administrator to operate this Program and Program Administrator may access data that You communicate. You represent that you have obtained or that you shall obtain all consents or authorizations necessary by virtue of applicable law to communicate such data to Gigamon.
You acknowledge that:
- Gigamon's policy is to conduct its business activities in compliance with applicable anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws, including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act globally and other applicable anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws in countries where Gigamon conducts business such as the United Kingdom's UK Bribery Act.
- Gigamon employees, third parties and You shall not make, give, pay, offer, promise, authorize, or accept, directly or indirectly (including through a third party), a bribe, a kickback, or anything of value in exchange for obtaining (or retaining) business or an improper advantage or as an inducement or reward for obtaining (or retaining) business or an improper advantage. Gigamon is committed to winning business based on the merits of its products and not on unethical or illegal business practices. While much of this policy focuses on avoiding improper payments and in-kind benefits (e.g., gifts, travel benefits, lavish entertainment) to government Officials, this policy also restricts such improper payments in the course of commercial, nonpublic-sector-related business
- Gigamon is a US corporation, and its conduct and that of its employees and third parties partners are governed by the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Gigamon’s third party partners and other representatives and consultants (including channel partners, suppliers, and vendors), may face criminal and civil penalties under the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act if any payments in connection with a Gigamon sale are used, in whole or in part, to make an improper payment to a government official.
- While public sector bribery (that is, involving government officials or employees of state-owned enterprises) is a significant area of compliance concern, bribery of private customers is forbidden in many countries and jurisdictions and is also inconsistent with Gigamon's policies and values.
- With respect to the public sector, nothing of value (including but not limited to gifts, entertainment, travel) should be offered or provided to government officials (including those employed at any level by state-owned enterprises and corporations), without prior approval from Gigamon's Legal Department.
- You therefore agree to comply with all applicable laws relating to anti-corruption or anti-bribery, including, but not limited to, the requirements of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, as amended, the U.K. Bribery Act and legislation implementing the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions. You also agree that no gift or entertainment should be offered or provided to third parties such as actual or prospective customers or others, related to any transaction involving Gigamon, in order to encourage a person to perform his or her functions improperly or to reward the person for having done so.
- For purpose of this Section, the term “government officials” include:
- Any officer or employee of any national, regional, local, or other governmental entity, including elected officials, political appointees, and civil servants;
- • Any private person acting in an official capacity for or on behalf of any governmental entity (such as a consultant retained by a government agency);
- • Officers and employees of companies in which the state has a majority ownership interest or over which the state exercises control;
- • Candidates for political office at any level;
- • Political parties and their officials;
- • Officers, employees, or official representatives of public international organizations, such as the World Bank, United Nations, International Monetary Fund, and so on; and
- • In many countries, entities that would typically be privately owned in the U.S. may be owned or controlled by the local government. Where an entity is majority owned or controlled by the local government, you should assume that its employees will be considered to be government officials. Accordingly, all the restrictions that apply to offering or providing anything of value to a government official will also apply to an employee of a state-owned or controlled company.
