We are dedicated to ensuring that our supply chains do not rely on or benefit from slavery or human trafficking. To this end, we have formulated, and seek to enforce, a code of conduct for our vendors (the “Vendor Code of Conduct”). The Vendor Code of Conduct requires our suppliers to:

• not tolerate harassment by our suppliers in any form, including verbal, physical, or sexual harassment.
• to provide equal opportunities in employment, development, and advancement for all qualified persons.

Where we suspect that any of our suppliers are relying on or benefitting from modern slavery or human trafficking, we would terminate our relationship with that supplier and make any necessary reports to the relevant authorities.
To date, we have received no reports of any incidents relating to modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains.
