Curio Concern being a very liberal and a paternalistic organization, has very limited policies. We would never want our customers to feel that we have policies which would create a negative feelings. Policies for us are for the security of the goods and services that we provide. We would want to have the best business ethics and etiquette. We would not like to mention our general policies, as we would want to deal with the individual customers personally and deal with different problems in different ways. We would not want to seek one solution, the POLICY, in order to solve the problems of our valued customers.
Our only policy is ”Deal with different problems with different solutions, according to the state of the problem itself“.
