Suppliers follow ethical standards and act with integrity in all areas of business and strive to promote it.

This means:

Business integrity
Suppliers are committed to conducting business in a manner consistent with fair competition. Business transactions are recorded in business records in accordance with legal requirements. They use only fair business practices and comply with antitrust laws. Advertising is always used truthfully.

Corruption and bribery
Suppliers reject any form of corruption, bribery, extortion and embezzlement. In business dealings with other companies or government agencies, suppliers do not offer or accept bribes or other unlawful inducements. Gifts from suppliers to employees of our hotel brands may only be made on an isolated basis and may not have a value large enough to affect fair competition or the business relationship.

Data protection and information security
Suppliers are committed to protecting the personal and confidential information of employees and customers. Data will be stored only where absolutely necessary or required by law.
