We champion confidentiality and stand by our company ethics. Our integrity matters to us and when it comes to taking on new projects we work to three guiding principles.
- We will never develop software that bypasses the need to purchase a 3rd party licence
- We will, wherever possible, get permission from all parties for the work that we do before we start
- We will never discuss our work or our clients without their express permission to do so
We take the same ethical stance with our team members. We are proud to be an international company and treat all of our people equally, harmonising contracts in all the regions where we work so that everyone is focused on the same goals. We do not expect any of our people to work outside normal hours for their time zone and are delighted that our clients support this approach.
