Code of Business Conduct and Ethics
The TSYS Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (the "Code") covers a wide range of business practices and procedures. While it does not cover every issue that may arise, this Code outlines basic principles to guide all employees and officers of the Company and its majority-owned subsidiaries ("team members"). In addition, all members of the Company's Board of Directors and members of the boards of directors of the Company's majority-owned subsidiaries, in regard to their Company duties, are responsible for conducting themselves in connection with the applicable provisions of this Code. Team members and directors must conduct themselves accordingly and seek to avoid even the appearance of improper conduct. The Code will be provided to all team members and directors and should also be provided to the Company's agents and representatives, including business partners, vendors and consultants.
If a local, state or national law conflicts with any policy in this Code, team members and directors must comply with the law; however, if a local custom or policy conflicts with this Code, team members and directors must comply with the Code. A team member who has questions about these conflicts should ask his or her supervisor how to handle the situation or call the Helpline.
Team members who violate the standards in this Code will be subject to disciplinary action.
If you are in a situation that you believe may violate or lead to a violation of this Code, follow the guidelines described in Section 12.
