Supplier Code of Business Ethics
McGraw Hill enjoys a worldwide reputation for integrity, honesty and good faith across all dealings. We are committed to conducting business in accordance with the highest standards of business ethics and in accordance with applicable laws. This Supplier Code of Business Ethics ("Code") sets out the principles and expectations we have of our suppliers in conducting business.
As one of McGraw Hill's suppliers, we require that you understand the requirements of this Code, operate in accordance with the expectations outlined and comply, at a minimum with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and standards within the geographies in which you operate. In instances where standards outlined in this Code differ from local laws, you must respect these standards within the framework of the applicable local laws. If this Code conflicts with the terms of your contract with us, the contract terms will prevail.

McGraw Hill prohibits bribery and corruption in any form. McGraw Hill complies with all applicable anti-corruption, anti-bribery and similar acts of countries applicable to our activities, including but not limited to the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Bribery Act 2010, and we expect our suppliers to do the same. Our suppliers must conduct business ethically and with the highest level of integrity and shall not take any action that would cause them to be in violation of this Code or applicable anti-corruption laws.

McGraw Hill takes the privacy and security of personal and sensitive information of our customers and employees seriously, and we expect our Suppliers to do the same by meeting the data protection and privacy requirements as defined in our agreements.
