The Company takes a zero-tolerance approach towards slavery and human trafficking within its supply chain and expects the.same commitment from its suppliers, contractors and business partners. This statement sets out the steps it has taken during the financial year to reflect this commitment.
The Company is an international marketing intelligence company. We employ over 550 people in 15 offices located in North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific region.

Our supply chains
Our key supply chains comprise:
- Digital advertising marketplaces/demand side: platforms (DSPs);
- Other companies supplying services connected to the serving, monitoring and verification of on-line advertisements;
- Data.suppliers; and
- Other IT and technical service companies.
These businesses are predominantly staffed by highly-skilled employees. We consider that the sector that we operate in, the transactions that we undertake and any business relationships that we enter into all carry a negligible risk in terms of slavery and human trafficking.
In light of the above, the Company assesses that the overall risk from slavery and human trafficking within its business is negligible.
Our approach to slavery and human trafficking
The Company acts ethically and with. integrity in.all its business relationships. The Company is committed to ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in .its supply chains or in any part of our.business.
The Company will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking.
The Company will remain alert to any risk from slavery and human trafficking. If the Company has any reason to suspect that any of its suppliers are affected by slavery or human trafficking, it will carry out reasonable and proportionate investigations and take whatever action it considers appropriate.
Our key performance indicators will be:
- The number of reports we .receive of slavery or human trafficking within our supply chain; and
- The instances of our carrying out investigations and .taking appropriate action.
We will review the risk from slavery and human trafficking annually and. assess whether the risk has increased. If the risk has increased, we will.consider what further actions are required to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains. Such further actions may.include extending training about slavery and human trafficking more widely across the Company’s staff.
