Employees cannot submit recommendations or make decisions regarding T-Mobile Polska’s initiation of collaboration with any individual or entity in which the employee, a close member of the employee’s family or other person close to the employee has a financial interest, has entered into a commercial agreement or is under a contract of employment.
Employees, close members of their families or otherwise close persons cannot possess financial interests in T-Mobile Polska suppliers, customers, or competitors without the knowledge of T-Mobile Polska. (1.2)
