Duos will conduct its business honestly and ethically wherever we operate in the world. We will constantly attempt to improve the quality of our services, products and operations and will create a reputation for honesty, fairness, respect, responsibility, integrity, trust and sound business judgment. No illegal or unethical conduct on the part of officers, directors, employees or affiliates is in the Company’s best interest. Duos will not compromise its principles for short-term advantage.

Officers, directors and employees of Duos will often come into contact with, or have possession of, proprietary, confidential or business-sensitive information and must take appropriate steps to assure that such information is strictly safeguarded. This information – whether it is on behalf of our Company or any of our clients or affiliates – could include strategic business plans, operating results, marketing strategies, customer lists, personnel records, upcoming acquisitions and divestitures, new investments, and manufacturing costs, processes and methods.

Misuse of material  inside information1 in  connection  with  trading in  the Company’s securities can expose an individual to civil liability and penalties under Securities laws. Directors, officers, and employees in possession of material information not available to the public are “insiders.” Spouses, friends, suppliers, brokers, and others outside the Company who may have acquired the information directly or indirectly from a director, officer or employee are also “insiders.” The Act prohibits insiders from trading in, or recommending the sale or purchase of, the Company’s securities, while such inside


1 Insider information is a non-public fact regarding the plans or condition of a publicly traded company that could provide a financial advantage when used to buy or sell shares of the company's stock. Insider information is typically gained by someone who is working within or close to a listed company. If a person uses insider information to place trades, he or she can be found guilty of insider trading. Insider trading is illegal when the material information has not been made public and has been traded on. This is because the information gives those having this knowledge an unfair advantage.

Code of Ethics

information is regarded as “material”, or if it is important enough to influence you or any other person in the purchase or sale of securities of any Company with which we do business, which could be affected by the inside information. The following guidelines should be followed in dealing with inside information:


Until the material information has been publicly released by the Company, an employee must not disclose it to anyone except those within the Company whose positions require use of the information.


Employees must not buy or sell the Company’s securities when they have knowledge of material information concerning the Company until it has been disclosed to the public and the public has had sufficient time to absorb the information.


Employees shall not buy or sell securities of another corporation, the value of which is likely to be affected by an action by the Company of which the employee is aware and which has not been publicly disclosed.

Officers, directors and employees will seek to report all information accurately and honestly, and as otherwise required by applicable reporting requirements.

Officers, directors and employees will refrain from gathering competitor intelligence by illegitimate means and refrain from acting on knowledge which has been gathered in such a manner. The officers, directors and employees of Duos will seek to avoid exaggerating or disparaging comparisons of the services and competence of their competitors.

Officers, directors and employees will obey all Equal Employment Opportunity laws and act with respect and responsibility towards others in all of their dealings.

Officers, directors and employees will remain personally balanced so that their personal life will not interfere with their ability to deliver quality products or services to the Company and its clients.

Officers, directors and employees agree to disclose unethical, dishonest, fraudulent and illegal behavior, or the violation of Company policies and procedures, directly to management.

Violation of this Code of Ethics can result in discipline, including possible termination. The degree of discipline relates in part to whether there was a voluntary disclosure of any ethical  violation  and whether or not the violator cooperated in any subsequent investigation.

Remember that good ethics is good business.
