Best Buy Policies
These Vendor Privacy and Security Policy Requirements (“Requirements”) are part of Best Buy's comprehensive privacy and security program which seeks to reduce or eliminate risk of loss to Best Buy, its employees, and its customers.
The Code of Ethics sets out Best Buy's beliefs, principles and expectations of all of us, at every level of the Company.
At Best Buy, we have long taken steps to meet our responsibility to respect human rights. In addition, we are deeply, concerned about conflict and human right abuses in the DRC funded through exploitive mining practices. As such, we fully support the aims and objectives of the Dodd-Frank Act, section 1502 and have designed our Conflict Minerals program to comply with the law and, we hope, have a positive impact on the situation in the DRC.
When an employee or anyone representing Best Buy acts or appears to act in their personal interest or that of a third party rather than the best interest of Best Buy, it causes others to lose trust in us. Private, personal interests may cloud our ability to make sound, objective decisions in the best interests of the Company. Best Buy employees must avoid actual and perceived conflicts of interest.
Best Buy depends on its vendors to help provide customers with the products and services that customers need at the prices customers want. To ensure success, employees must avoid business practices and activities that may create or have the appearance of impropriety or a conflict of interest with vendors or potentially lead to undue influence by a vendor in Best Buy's purchasing decisions.
These SDF Program Policies outline all required and necessary steps for you to participate in the SDF Program, and are incorporated by reference into your Vendor Master Agreement with Best Buy Purchasing LLC (the “Agreement”) via the Vendor Performance and Operations Standards posted on the Partner Portal.
