Verhaltensrichtlinien von Colt

Verhaltenskodex des Partners

Colt bekennt sich zu einem höchstmöglichen Standard an Corporate Governance und Verantwortung. Unsere Politik besteht nicht nur darin, die Gesetze oder Vorschriften einzuhalten, sondern eine echte Kultur der Einhaltung zu vermitteln und aufrechtzuerhalten, wo immer wir geschäftlich tätig sind. Infolgedessen erwartet Colt, dass alle Partner (einschließlich ihrer Unterpartner und verbundenen Unternehmen) den Buchstaben und den Geist ihres Engagements für Integrität annehmen.

Dieser Verhaltenskodex für Partner enthält dieselben Standards für ethisches Verhalten und Integrität wie der interne Verhaltenskodex von Colt. Die Partner werden gebeten, diesen Kodex einzuhalten und sich darüber im Klaren zu sein, dass ihre Aktivitäten einen Einfluss auf das Ansehen und das Vertrauensverhältnis von Colt zu Kunden, Mitarbeitern, Aktionären und Stakeholdern haben können. Wir gehen davon aus, dass der Schutz dieser Vermögenswerte mit größter Sorgfalt erfolgt.

Our supplier code of conduct

Colt is committed to the highest possible standard of corporate governance and responsibility. Our policy is not merely to comply with the letter of laws or regulations, but rather to instil and maintain a true culture of compliance wherever we do business. In consequence, Colt expects that all Suppliers will embrace the letter and spirit of its commitment to integrity.

This Supplier Code of Conduct incorporates the same standards of ethical conduct and integrity as the Colt internal Code of Business Conduct. Suppliers are requested to adhere to this Code and to remain mindful that their activities may have an influence on Colt’s reputation and relationship of trust with customers, employees and shareholders. We expect that the utmost of care is taken to protect Colt's reputation and relationships.

GPL - Our commitment

Before filing or continuing to prosecute any legal proceeding or claim (other than a Defensive Action) arising from termination of a Covered License, Colt commits to extend to the person or entity (“you”) accused of violating the Covered License the following provisions regarding cure and reinstatement, taken from GPL version 3. As used here, the term ‘this License’ refers to the specific Covered License being enforced.

However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a) provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means prior to 60 days after the cessation.

Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after your receipt of the notice.

Colt intends this Commitment to be irrevocable, and binding and enforceable against Colt and assignees of or successors to Colt’s copyrights.

Colt may modify this Commitment by publishing a new edition on this page or a successor location.

Our tax policy

This tax policy applies to Colt Group Holdings Ltd and its subsidiaries. The policy has been reviewed by the Audit Committee and approved by the Board of Directors.

Colt provides high bandwidth network services, voice services and data centre services for enterprises and wholesale customers in Europe, Asia and North America’s largest business hubs. We enable the digital transformation of businesses through our intelligent, purpose‐built, cloud-integrated network, connecting over 900 data centres around the globe.

Colt takes its legal obligations seriously and is committed to the highest possible level of both legal and ethical standards. We fully comply with tax law in all the territories in which we operate, including the UK, and pay the right amount of tax, at the right time and in the right place. Nevertheless, Colt is a large organisation and it is inevitable that risks, including tax risks, will arise. As with any risk, we carefully manage tax risk including in respect of UK taxation through an established framework of systems, processes and controls which have been approved by the board of directors. This framework seeks to proactively identify and mitigate tax risk. Such risks are communicated to the board of directors who have ultimate responsibility for tax governance.

It is not the group’s policy to simply comply with the letter of the law, but also the spirit of the law and due consideration is given to protecting the group’s reputation and its brand. We will only undertake transactions that have a strong underlying commercial rationale; we do not undertake transactions that are artificial or contrived or that are designed to avoid taxation. All transactions between legal entities of the Colt group are conducted on an arm’s length basis.

Colt is a large and dynamic organisation and operates against a background of rapidly evolving tax law. We seek to minimise tax risk and we seek professional advice where necessary and apply for tax rulings where the interpretation of tax law is unclear.

We engage with tax authorities, including HM Revenue & Customs, with openness and transparency including full disclosure of all relevant facts. Colt believes in engaging with tax authorities in a proactive discussion to resolve disputes but we will consider litigation where we disagree with a tax authority on a point of law or a matter of interpretation.

Colt regards the publication of this policy as complying with our duty under para 16(2), Sch 19 FA16 for the year ended 31 December 2020

Regulatory surcharges

Colt has levied a one-off Regulatory Surcharge on customers of its network services in September 2015. This is a contribution to the significant investment we have made to comply with new obligations and regulations implemented on a national and European level recently. The most significant example is the 2011 EU Directive on ‘Security and Integrity of Electronic Communications’.

The Directive requires national regulatory authorities to take measures to ensure that ‘providers take appropriate security measures to protect the security of networks and services’, and that ‘providers report incidents with significant impact on networks and services’. For more detail, please see the following document by The European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (‘ENISA’).

Since the EU Directive was implemented into national legislation, national regulatory authorities have been working to develop their own frameworks and processes to ensure compliance, in line with EU law. Different countries have developed their own approaches.

Therefore, Colt has embarked on a major programme of investment to develop, review, monitor and document its systems and operational procedures to the standard required to ensure compliance.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss this charge.
