OpenPayd Holdings Limited and its relevant group companies (“OpenPayd” or “OpenPayd Group”) are committed to ensuring no slavery or human trafficking exists within OpenPayd or its supply chains. Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced or 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. OpenPayd will not support or trade with any business knowingly involved in modern slavery or human trafficking.
