This statement is made on behalf of SimpleServe Web Design Ltd pursuant to s.54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the ‘Act’) and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement.
Although the likelihood of an incidence of modern slavery in our business or our supply chains is extremely low, we work to the highest ethical and professional standards and value transparency and accountability in all our dealings. We have a zero tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking and expect the same high standards from those we work with, from clients to employees, to contracting services and to freelancers.
We have put in place this modern slavery policy which is supported by other internal policies and HR processes such as our privacy and data protection and disciplinary policies.
The Directors of SimpleServe are ultimately responsible for compliance internally, and in our supplier relationships.
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. We have carried out rigorous checks on existing suppliers on a risk assessed basis and will include, as part of our procurement processes, the same checks on any new suppliers used within or by the group.
We occasionally utilise our trusted third-party freelance developers for certain specific projects who are generally based in India, Vietnam or other Eastern European countries such as Poland. We ensure that any outsourcing to our third-party contractors is in line with equivalent U.K comparisons. This means that we treat, and remunerate, our outsourcing offshore team exactly the same as we treat our onshore team and retain their services for ongoing project matters.
Freelancers are free to take or reject any project offered to them and can leave us at any time.
