Consumption of alcohol is not banned at our offices, but use good judgment and never drink in a way that leads to impaired performance or inappropriate behavior, endangers the safety of others, or violates the law.

- conflicts of interest avoidance
When you are in a situation of competitive opportunities which could cause you to pursue a personal benefit for you, your friends, or your family at the expense of Alpha Navigation or our customers, you may be faced with a conflict of interest. All of us should avoid conflicts of interest and circumstances that could lead to the appearance of a conflict. When considering a course of action, ask yourself whether the action you’re considering could create a motivation for you, or appear to others such as a creation of motivation for you, to benefit yourself, your friends or family, or an associated business at the expense of Alpha Navigation. So, If the answer is positive, the action you’re considering is likely to create a conflict of interest situation, and you should avoid it.

Herein are shown some areas where conflicts of interest often arise:

- an outside employment, consulting practice, starting your own business; business opportunities found through work;
- inventions;
- friends and relatives;
- co-worker relationships;
- accepting gifts, entertainment, and other business courtesies;
- unauthorized use Alpha Navigation products and services.

In each of these situations, the rule is the same – if you are considering entering into a business situation that creates a conflict of interest, don’t. If you are in a business situation that may create a conflict of interest, or the appearance of a conflict of interest, review the situation with Alpha Navigation management as from the side of ethic & compliance relationship. Finally, it’s important to understand that as circumstances change, a situation that previously didn’t present a conflict of interest may present one.

Alpha Navigation always seek to be an individual company. It’s too difficult to state out every possible scenario we might face. Instead, we rely on one another’s good judgment to uphold a high standard of integrity for ourselves and our Company. We expect that all our employees to be guided by both the letter and the spirit of this Code. Sometimes, identifying the right thing to do isn’t an easy task. If you aren’t sure, don’t hesitate ask questions Alpha Navigation management.
