The Synopsys Business Partner Code of Conduct (the “Code”) is the roadmap for Synopsys Business Partners to do business the right way. By conducting business with Synopsys, each Business Partner agrees to comply with the Code and to maintain the highest ethical standards under any and all circumstances. Every Business Partner is required to review the contents of this document and to make this document available to employees and others doing business on the Business Partner’s behalf. Business Partners are further required to sign the Receipt and Acknowledgement, which certifies that the Business Partner has received and reviewed the Code, that the Business Partner understands and agrees to comply with the Code, and that the Business Partner understands that engaging in conduct that is in violation of the Code or is otherwise unethical is grounds for termination or non-renewal of the Business Partner’s relationship with Synopsys.
