Equal Treatment

We are committed to providing equal employment opportunities. We treat everyone fairly, and we never engage in any form of unlawful discrimination. We follow all anti-discrimination laws, and our employment decisions (such as recruiting, hiring, training, salary and promotion) are never based on discrimination against individuals on the basis of race, color, gender, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, citizenship, disability, health status or any other legally protected factor.

Physical and Verbal Violence in the Workplace

We are committed to providing a safe work environment. We never tolerate any form of violence, physical and verbal. “Violence” includes threats or acts of violence, intimidation against others or attempts to instill fear in others.

Preventing Harassment

We are committed to providing a harassment-free environment, in which we all have an opportunity to contribute our highest potential. “Harassment” as a behavior, either physical or verbal, done in person or by other means (such as harassing notes or emails), that creates an offensive, intimidating, humiliating or hostile work environment that unreasonably interferes with another person’s work performance is not tolerated by any means.

Workplace Health and Safety

Our employees are our company’s most valuable asset, and so we are committed to ensuring and continuously improving the highest standards of safety to protect ourselves, our colleagues and external parties who work at or visit our sites. We are committed to reducing risks, averting danger and ensuring safe working conditions with respect to workplace injury prevention and minimizing the risk to health. We always discuss the relevant information with workers and their deputies. We follow all GUMOTEX safety and security procedures, as well as applicable laws and regulations. Nothing justifies working around or ignoring any safety rule – whether an internal procedure, external regulation or law.

Drug and Alcohol Use

Business at GUMOTEX is conducted in a safe and responsible manner, free from the influence of any substance that could impair or alter job performance. We never tolerate alcohol, drugs, controlled substances or medication in a way that might harm our ability to conduct business safely and successfully.

Child Labor and Forced Labor

We forbid the use of child labor, forced labor, or compulsory labor, in any of our facilities. An individual under the age of 15 or the underaged person without completed compulsory school attendance is considered a child. Individuals under the age of 18 years require increased job protection in the form of specially arranged working conditions.

Wage and Hour Practices

We follow all applicable wage and hour laws, including minimum wage, overtime and maximum hour laws. We never require an employee to violate these laws.

Freedom of Association

We respect every employee’s right to choose to join a trade union, or to have recognized employee representation in accordance with applicable law. We do not violate these employee rights.

Keeping GUMOTEX Information Secure

All our employees keep confidential information about GUMOTEX secure, including any information they may come across during the course of their work. “Confidential information” is any information that is not available to the general public, but has been learned as a result of one’s position within GUMOTEX.

Protection of GUMOTEX Intellectual Property

GUMOTEX’s Intellectual Property (IP) is considered as one of its most valuable assets and all employees spare a maximal effort in protecting it. IP includes copyrights, patents, utility models, trademarks, trade secrets, design rights, trade dress, logos, know how, photos / videos, individuals’ names and likenesses, and other intangible industrial or commercial property.

External Party Information

We are committed to safeguarding the confidential information of our business stakeholders. We respect and comply with all confidentiality agreements entered into with our partners. We value this cooperative relationship, and so we never share a stakeholder’s confidential information with another entity.

External Party Intellectual Property and Commercial Rights

We respect all external party intellectual property (IP) rights and other intangible commercial rights belonging to others. In particular, these rights include creative works, personality rights, and other ideas and inventions protected by law such as copyrights, patents, utility models, trademarks, trade secrets, and design rights, among others. We never knowingly infringe upon these rights.


We comply with all applicable rules related to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Ensuring Product Quality and Safety

Product quality and safety are of the utmost importance to us. Our customers choose GUMOTEX because we provide products of superior quality and value.

We must ensure that GUMOTEX meets or exceeds all applicable legislative and regulatory requirements, including our certified standards or management systems such as ISO or IATF, related to product quality and safety. Our products and packages are safe for consumers and the environment when used as intended.

Complying with Competition Laws

GUMOTEX is a vigorous and fair competitor. We succeed based on the quality of our products, our operational excellence and our employees, and never through the use of unfair business practices. We adhere to market competition laws (also referred to as “antitrust” laws).

Transparent Behavior

We strictly follow all applicable anti-corruption laws and regulations, including legislation regulating foreign anti-corruption practices. We will neither engage nor tolerate any form of corruption, bribery, theft, embezzlement, or extortion.

We never make supplier, customer or other business decisions based on any personal benefit given or offered. In particular, we do not solicit or accept bribes or kickbacks from anyone who does or seeks to do business with GUMOTEX. We never offer or give any bribes or kickbacks to any supplier, customer or other stakeholder.

Handling Potential Conflicts of Interest

We always act solely in the best interests of GUMOTEX. In order to uphold GUMOTEX’s reputation, we make every effort to watch out for any situations that may create a conflict of interest, whether actual or potential.

No Illegal Financial Transactions

We will not tolerate any use of illegal financial transactions including any payments or other benefits to individuals, companies, international organizations, or governmental bodies for the purpose of influencing the decision-making process which would violate applicable laws, internal rules and procedures. GUMOTEX is entitled to terminate any contractual relationship if it believes, in good faith, that the contractual party has violated applicable anti-corruption laws or any other regulation by its conduct.

Boycotts and Embargoes

We have systems and processes in place to help us comply in a responsible manner with economic sanctions and trade embargoes.


We strive to provide clear and accurate information to the media, external business partners, state authorities and the general public. Clear and accurate communication helps us maintain and develop our relationships with the public and other external stakeholders, which in turn strengthens our corporate reputation.

Management of the GUMOTEX Group shall provide the necessary resources required to fulfill this  Declaration, create conditions for all employees to understand the aforementioned principles, and conduct regular reviews. We expect our partners to follow these or similar guidelines; this expectation is also considered in their selection.

The Declaration is made available on the website of the GUMOTEX Group.
