Our Company must comply with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to its operations and business activities. Likewise, all Company directors, officers and employees are required to comply with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to their Company-related business activities and responsibilities. In addition to the local laws in each of the countries in which we are based, there are some laws (such as European Union, U.K. and U.S. competition and anti-corruption laws) that apply to our Company's operations globally.
