This statement is made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Clickingmad has taken and is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.
Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Clickingmad has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place, to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.
We are a website design, development and promotion company based in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, United Kingdom. We trade mainly with UK business clients and also purchase some technology services from overseas particular the United States of America.
It is possible that some suppliers, particularly overseas may indulge in practices of recruitment that fall short of our standards. We do our best to ascertain that their policies and procedures do not conflict with our own standards.
We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:
Clickingmad Ltd operates a supplier policy and maintains a preferred supplier list. We conduct due diligence on all suppliers before allowing them to become a preferred supplier. This due diligence includes an online search to ensure that particular organisation has never been convicted of offences relating to modern slavery. Our anti-slavery policy forms part of our contract with all suppliers and they are required to confirm that no part of their business operations contradicts this policy.
In addition to the above, as part of our contract with suppliers, we require that they confirm to us that:
We regularly conduct training for our procurement/buying teams so that they understand the signs of modern slavery and what to do if they suspect that it is taking place within our supply chain.
We will know the effectiveness of the steps that we are taking to ensure that slavery and/or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain if: No reports are received from employees, the public, or law enforcement agencies to indicate that modern slavery practices have been identified.
