Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and Prohibited Business Practices
June 4, 2020
This Code of Business Conduct and Ethics applies to all vendors and suppliers of Spa Noir Beauty Cocktails. Such vendors and suppliers, including you, are referred to herein collectively as the “Covered Parties” and Spa Noir Beauty Cocktails and its subsidiaries are referred to herein collectively as the “Company.” Any questions or concerns should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Company is proud of the values with which it conducts business. It has and will continue to uphold the highest levels of business ethics and personal integrity in all types of transactions and interactions. To this end, this Code of Business Conduct and Ethics serves to (1) emphasize the Company’s commitment to ethics and compliance with the law; (2) set forth basic standards of ethical and legal behavior; (3) provide reporting mechanisms for known or suspected ethical or legal violations; and (4) help prevent and detect wrongdoing. We expect our vendors and suppliers to operate with the same level of commitment and integrity in all its dealings respecting Spa Noir Beauty Cocktails business. Given the variety and complexity of ethical questions that may arise in the Company’s course of business, this Code of Business Conduct and Ethics serves only as a rough guide. Confronted with ethically ambiguous situations, the Covered Parties should remember the Company’s commitment to the highest ethical standards and seek advice from Company representatives to ensure that all actions they take honor this commitment.
Conflicts of Interest.
A conflict of interest exists when a person’s private interest interferes in any way with the interests of the Company. A conflict can arise when a Covered Party takes actions or has interests that may make it difficult to perform his or her work for the Company objectively and effectively. Conflicts of interest may also arise when a Covered Party, or members of his or her family, receives improper personal benefits as a result of his or her interactions with the Company. Loans to, or guarantees of obligations of, Covered Parties and their family members may create conflicts of interest. It is almost always a conflict of interest for a Covered Party to work simultaneously for a competitor.
Conflicts of interest may not always be clear-cut, so if you have a question, you should consult with a Company representative. Any Covered Party who becomes aware of a conflict or potential conflict should bring it to the attention of a Company representative or consult the procedures described in Section E of this Code.
Covered Parties are prohibited from taking for themselves opportunities that are discovered through the use of Company property, information or position without the consent of the Company. No Covered Party may use Company property, information or position for improper personal gain, and no Covered Party may compete with the Company directly or indirectly.
Covered Parties shall behave honestly and ethically at all times and with all people. They shall act in good faith, with due care, and shall engage only in fair and open competition, by treating competitors, suppliers, customers, and colleagues ethically. Stealing proprietary information, possessing trade secret information that was obtained without the owner’s consent, or inducing such disclosures by past or present employees of other companies is prohibited. No Covered Party should take unfair advantage of anyone through manipulation, concealment, abuse of privileged information, misrepresentation of material facts, or any other unfair practice. The purpose of business entertainment and gifts in a commercial setting is to create good will and sound working relationships, not to gain unfair advantage with customers. No gift or entertainment should ever be offered or accepted by a Covered Party or any family member of a Covered Party unless it (1) is consistent with customary business practices, (2) is not excessive in value, (3) cannot be construed as a bribe or payoff and (4) does not violate any laws or regulations. The offer or acceptance of cash gifts by any Covered Party is prohibited. Covered Parties should discuss with Company representatives any gifts or proposed gifts which they think may be inappropriate.
Covered Parties must maintain the confidentiality of confidential information entrusted to them, except when disclosure is authorized by an appropriate legal officer of the Company or required by laws or regulations. Confidential information includes all non-public information that might be of use to competitors or harmful to the Company or its customers if disclosed. It also includes information that suppliers and customers have entrusted to the Company. The obligation to preserve confidential information continues even after the business relationship with the Company ends.
Protection and Proper Use of Company Assets.
All Covered Parties should endeavor to protect the Company’s assets and ensure their efficient use. Any suspected incident of fraud or theft must be immediately reported for investigation. The obligation of Covered Parties to protect the Company’s assets includes its proprietary information. Proprietary information includes intellectual property such as trade secrets, patents, trademarks, and copyrights, as well as business, marketing and service plans, engineering and manufacturing ideas, designs, databases, records, salary information and any unpublished financial data and reports. Unauthorized use or distribution of this information would violate the agreement and it could also be illegal and result in civil or criminal penalties.
Compliance with Laws, Rules and Regulations.
Obeying the law, both in letter and in spirit, is the foundation on which the Company’s ethical standards are built. In conducting business with the Company, the Covered Parties shall comply with applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations at all levels of government in the United States and in any non-U.S. jurisdiction in which the Company does business. Although not all Covered Parties are expected to know the details of these laws, it is important to know enough about the applicable local, state and national laws to determine when to seek advice from a Company representative.
Reporting Known or Suspected Violations. The Covered Parties shall promptly report any known or suspected violations of this Code to a Company representative.
Accountability for Violations.
If the Company or its designee determines that this Code has been violated, either directly, by failure to report a violation, or by withholding information related to a violation, the conduct by offending Covered Party may be deemed a breach of contract. Violations of this Code may also constitute violations of law and may result in criminal penalties and civil liabilities for the offending Covered Party. All Covered Parties are expected to cooperate in investigations of misconduct.
We must all work together to ensure prompt and consistent action against violations of this Code. In some situations, however, it is difficult to know if a violation has occurred. Because we cannot anticipate every situation that will arise, it is important that we have a way to approach a new question or problem.

Earnings Through Sales. Commissions are paid to Covered Parties who qualify pursuant to the Compensation Plan and those who are in compliance with the Contract. A Covered Parties success is only achieved through the regular and repeated Sale of Products and the regular and repeated sales by its Down Line Organization where applicable. As the success of any Affiliate depends largely on the personal efforts of that Affiliate, Spa Noir Beauty Cocktails does not guarantee any level of profit or success, nor does it guarantee an Affiliate a specific income. An Affiliate does not receive compensation for Sponsoring or recruiting other Covered Parties. The only way to earn Commissions is through the sale of Products.
