Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by
another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
We are committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our operations and supply chains. We have taken steps to tackle modern slavery, as outlined in our statement. This statement sets out the actions that we have taken to better understand
all potential modern slavery risks related to our business.
Our Business and Supply Chains
We are a provider of payment processing services in the Visa USA and Europe regions.
Our supply chain consists of the procurement of various goods and services. We form relationships of trust and integrity with all our suppliers, which are built upon mutually beneficial factors. Our supplier selection and onboarding includes due
diligence of the supplier’s reputation, respect for the law, compliance with health, safety and environmental standards, as well as requesting references as may be necessary.
Our Policies on Slavery and Human Trafficking
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 reviewed our workplace policies and procedures to assess their effectiveness in identifying and tackling modern slavery issues.
Our workplace policies and procedures demonstrate our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains. We strive to continually develop and improve our existing policies and processes to ensure that appropriate systems are put in place to better evaluate and be more effective at preventing modern slavery in our supply chains.
