Environmental Health and Safety Policy
VerseOne recognises and accepts its corporate responsibilities towards the environment, its employees, and the local communities in which it operates.
VerseOne is committed to a continuous improvement culture, actively looking for cost-effective ways of monitoring the company's environmental and community impact.
The Directors are firmly committed to achieving and maintaining sound environmental, health, and safety standards across the business. VerseOne is committed to assessing its impact on the environment wherever practicable and to evaluating the scope for reducing it over the medium and long term.
VerseOne depends upon the hard work and commitment of its employees. It recognises its legal responsibilities to employees, subcontractors and visitors to the company's premises and seeks to ensure their safety and well-being in the workplace.
Confidentiality is a means of providing service users with safety and privacy. Being a supplier of web content management solutions may bring VerseOne into contact with confidential information.
To ensure that all those working with VerseOne and its products and services can do so with confidence, VerseOne respects confidentiality in the following ways:
Staff within VerseOne treat any information received from service users as confidential and do not communicate that information to third parties without consent.
Information received from service users is regarded as confidential within the organisation. If required, it may only be shared with other staff with respect and discretion. Service users will be made aware of this fact if and when it occurs.
Information received from a service user will not be shared with any other service user.
Information will be recorded in a factual manner, without personal opinion or judgment.
Customers are always entitled to see any records held on them and make written comment on the information.
In allowing customers access to their information, care is taken that no information concerning a third party is revealed.
Any service user who is unhappy with the level of confidentiality is entitled to use the complaints procedure to pursue the matter.
VerseOne complies with all of the requirements of the Data Protection Act.
Bribery is the offering, promising, giving, accepting or soliciting of an advantage as an inducement for action which is illegal or a breach of trust. A bribe is an inducement or reward offered, promised or provided in order to gain any commercial, contractual, regulatory or personal advantage.
It is VerseOne's policy to conduct all of our business in an honest and ethical manner.
We take a zero- tolerance approach to bribery and corruption. We are committed to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships wherever we operate and implementing and enforcing effective systems to counter bribery.
We will uphold all laws relevant to countering bribery and corruption in all the jurisdictions in which we operate. However, we remain bound by the laws of the UK, including the Bribery Act 2010, in respect of our conduct both at home and abroad.
