Modern Slavery Statement

Effective Date: June 5, 2023.

 

Modern slavery is a heinous crime and a morally reprehensible act that deprives a person's liberty and dignity for another person's gain. It is a real problem for millions of people around the world, including many in developed countries, who are being kept and exploited in various forms of slavery. Every company is at risk of being involved in this crime through its own operations and its supply chain. This statement is published by AI & Partners in accordance with applicable laws, regulations and rules. It is the company’s first Modern Slavery Statement, and it is intended to communicate the steps AI & Partners has taken and is committed to take in the medium term to ensure the prevention of modern slavery and human trafficking within its business and supply chains.

Our Business and Supply Chains

Modern slavery is a heinous crime and a morally reprehensible act that deprives a person's liberty and dignity for another person's gain. It is a real problem for millions of people around the world, including many in developed countries, who are being kept and exploited in various forms of slavery. Every company is at risk of being involved in this crime through its own operations and its supply chain. This statement is published by AI & Partners in accordance with applicable laws, regulations and rules. It is the company’s first Modern Slavery Statement, and it is intended to communicate the steps AI & Partners has taken and is committed to take in the medium term to ensure the prevention of modern slavery and human trafficking within its business and supply chains.

Risk Assessment

In the next year, we plan to conduct a risk assessment of our supply chain by taking into account:

  • The risk profile of individual countries based on the Global Slavery Index

  • The business services rendered by the suppliers

  • The presence of vulnerable demographic groups

Consequences

AI & Partners operates the following policies for identifying and preventing slavery and human trafficking in our operations:

  • Whistleblowing Policy - we encourage all employees, customers and suppliers to report any suspicion of slavery or human trafficking without fear of retaliation. We provide a confidential helpline to protect the identity of whistle-blowers.

  • Code of Conduct - our code encourages employees to do the right thing by clearly stating the actions and behaviour expected of them when representing the business. We strive to maintain the highest standards of employee conduct and ethical behaviour when operating abroad and managing our supply chain.

Awareness

AI & Partners has raised awareness of modern slavery issues by sharing informational posters and leaflets across our facilities and sending an email that is focused specifically on modern slavery to all our staff, which explains:

  • Red flags for potential cases of slavery or human trafficking

  • How employees should report suspicions of modern slavery

Training

In addition to the awareness programme, to ensure we have a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and that this commitment is a company-wide policy, AI & Partners provides training to our staff and ensures open communication with our staff and organizations forming our supply chain discuss any potential issues, risks and concerns.

Performance Measurement

AI & Partners has defined a set of key performance indicators and controls to combat modern slavery and human trafficking in our organisation and supply chain.

Transparency Report

Effective Date: July 7, 2023.

 

Introduction 

AI & Partners (“we”, “us” or “AI&P”) are committed to being fully transparent about our privacy practices. Here, we describe our policy for managing government and law enforcement requests to access personal information that is stored in our systems, and we provide our Transparency Report that documents the requests we have received to date.

Government and law enforcement request policy

AI&P does not voluntarily disclose any personal data of customers to government authorities or otherwise grant them access to such data. In addition, AI&P has not built, and will not purposefully build, backdoors to enable government actors to access its data or information systems, and has not changed, and will not purposefully change, its processes in a manner that facilitates government access to data.

 

However, AI&P may receive a legally binding subpoena, writ, warrant, or other court order from a government authority requesting that it disclose a customer’s personal data. AI&P will only provide the requested customer data in response to formal and valid legal process. Where AI&P receives such a request, AI&P’s legal team reviews the request to ensure that it satisfies applicable legal requirements. If the legal assessment reveals legitimate and lawful grounds for challenging the request, AI&P will do so where appropriate. AI&P’s policy is to construe such requests narrowly to limit the scope of the personal data provided.

 

For AI&P to disclose any customer data, the request must also satisfy the following policies:

  • be made in writing and on official letterhead,

  • identify and be signed by an authorized official of the requesting party and provide official contact information, including a valid email address,

  • indicate the reason for, and nature of, the request,

  • identify the customer or customer account that is the target of the request,

  • describe with specificity the data/information sought and its relationship to the investigation, and

  • be issued and served in compliance with applicable law.

 

Where AI&P receives a legally binding request for a customer’s personal data, AI&P’s policy is to notify the customer via email before disclosing any information. To the extent permissible under the request and/or applicable law, the notice will describe the personal data requested, the authority making the request, the legal basis of the request, and any response already provided. This notice gives the customer an opportunity to pursue a legal remedy, such as filing an objection with a court or the requesting authority.

Exceptions to AI&P's policy for personal data requests by government authorities:

A statute, court order, or other law may prohibit AI&P from notifying the customer about the request, but AI&P will make reasonable efforts to obtain a waiver of the prohibition or provide notice once the prohibition requirement ends.

AI&P might not give notice to the customer in exceptional circumstances involving imminent danger of death or serious physical injury to any person or to prevent harm to AI&P’s services.

 

AI&P might not give notice to the customer when it has reason to believe that the notice would not go to the actual customer account holder, for instance, if an account has been hijacked.

 

Where AI&P identifies unlawful or harmful activity, or suspects any such activity, related to a customer’s account, it might notify appropriate authorities, such as in the cases of hacking.
