Optimise recognises its obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and is committed to ensuring that there is no occurrence of modern slavery or human trafficking within its business. As part of our overall commitment to operate ethically we have a zero-tolerance policy where any such occurrence is concerned.
Optimise operate within the digital advertising industry with multiple office locations spanning different countries. Our core supply chain is by and large limited to other businesses that operate within the digital advertising industry and includes technical service providers, online publishers, Advertisers and advertising/media agencies.
Where our suppliers are concerned we expect that they mirror our own business commitments to principles including:
- No use of child, slave or forced labour
- Employment is voluntary with ethical terms
- Ensuring that employment laws are adhered to including those relating to wages, overtime, working hours, sickness and benefits
As a business, we have assessed the risk of non-compliance with the Act to be low. Onboarding new suppliers reflects the risk context and appropriate measures are taken including, for example verifying commitments within published Modern Slavery Policies and securing compliance commitment within contracts.
We encourage our staff, partners and associates to report any non-compliance occurrences, risks or concerns to the Optimise senior management team and we are committed to acting decisively and in good faith to address any such concerns. The Directors of the business will ensure any such issues are investigated and resolved. We have internal disciplinary procedures for dealing with such incidences and where issues involve our suppliers we would take appropriate remedial steps.
Optimise are committed to doing its utmost to ensuring that no-one that reports breaches of our policy or related concerns will suffer detrimental treatment because they have reported an issue.
Our policy is reviewed annually.
