The Code applies to every director, officer and employee of each company within the Liberty Global Group.1 Company contract staff must also follow the Code. In the Code, when we refer to the Liberty Global Group, we are referring to Liberty Global plc and each company it directly or indirectly controls, and when we refer to our Company, we mean each and every company, business unit or division within the Liberty Global Group.
