Disclaimer - MACN Respects Antitrust and Competition Laws
The Members of MACN believe that the objectives of MACN can best be advanced through collaborative efforts. MACN and its Members acknowledge and understand that their activities must at all times be undertaken in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to laws and regulations relating to antitrust and competition. These laws are intended to preserve and promote free, fair and open competition. Failure to abide by these laws can potentially have extremely serious consequences for MACN and its Members.
The policy of MACN and its Members is therefore to conduct all of its activities in strict compliance with all applicable antitrust and competition laws, in order to facilitate legitimate pro-competitive and other activities that help advance the objectives of the initiative, but which excludes any prohibited activities.
It is therefore against the policy of MACN to sponsor, encourage or tolerate any discussion, communication of any kind, information sharing or agreement that would violate applicable antitrust or competition laws.
