The Anti-Bribery Policy establishes our corporate policy and procedures for ensuring compliance with anti-bribery laws, including the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”), the U.K. Bribery Act, legislation enacted under the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions (“OECD Convention”), and similar laws of other countries.

Antitrust Policy (PDF)
Antitrust laws forbid any business practice that reduces competition, either through collusive activity among competitors or through the use of a strong market position to exclude rivals. In the US, these laws are referred to as “Antitrust laws”; outside of the US, they are referred to as “Competition laws”. The Antitrust Policy establishes our corporate policy and procedure for ensuring associates and individuals who participate in Gartner Peer Activities comply with Antitrust and Competition laws in all regions in which the company does business.
