American Freight®, including its affiliates, and subsidiaries (together “American Freight”) are committed to conducting business in accordance with the highest ethical standards, a regard for human rights, and in compliance with all applicable laws. American Freight expects the same commitments from each of its vendors and suppliers ("Vendors") and expects its Vendors to demand similar standards in its entire supply chain including pre-assembly and production processes.
This Vendor Code of Conduct ("Code") describes the minimum standards of conduct that American Freight insists that its Vendors, regardless of their country of domicile or origin, comply with scrupulously and without exception as a condition to doing business with American Freight. This Code is mandatory, and if a Vendor does not comply with it, American Freight may terminate immediately its business relationship with the Vendor and take all other actions that American Freight deems appropriate under the circumstances. If this Code establishes a standard of legal conduct or business ethics that is higher than local legal or business ethics requirements, this Code will always control and apply to Vendors that desire to do business with American Freight. Each Vendor shall provide training about this Code to all its employees who will conduct business with American Freight.
When we refer to “Vendors” in this Code we mean each business enterprise, regardless of its form (such as a corporation or limited liability company, partnership, or sole proprietorship) that engages or participates, directly or indirectly, in the sale, consignment, or other provision of goods or services to American Freight.
The term “vendors” includes agents, subcontractors, and other third parties, and vendors cannot avoid the responsibilities and obligations imposed by this Code by using, or associating with, agents, subcontractors, or other third parties. When we refer to “applicable” law in this Code we mean the law, including regulations, judicial decrees, and other governmental actions that have the force of law, in effect at each location where a Vendor conducts operations with respect to, or that affect, the Vendor’s business with American Freight.
