Corporate Policies and Programs

We have established an Anti-Corruption Program and a formal Anti-Corruption Policy that are designed to prevent corruption and promote compliance on a global level. These tools make it clear to associates that, without exception, Staples prohibits any and all forms of bribery and kickbacks, whether direct or indirect.

What we're doing to protect your privacy

Staples created its Global Privacy and Information Management (PIM) Policy that governs how we handle and protect all customer, associate and business information for maximum security. As a part of this policy, our associates receive training and education on the protocols to use when handling credit card numbers and contact details, among other things. We have also developed a comprehensive response plan should a security breach of any magnitude take place.
