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. This policy is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the Secret Madison slavery and human trafficking policy in perpetuity.

This Prohibited Use Policy and 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.
For avoidance of doubT: Secret Madison proactively works with enforcement authorities and reports any person or group that appears to be in contravention with human rights and/or other prevailing law.
Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate human rights abuse,
Secret Madison employs ‘moderators’, which comprise sophisticated technologies that are extremely efficient and are then checked by human moderators.
All incidents that are questionable are reported to senior administrators that have the experience and powers to escalate such incidents to official enforcement authorities.
We have in place systems to:
• Identify and assess potential abuse areas.
• Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring.
• Monitor potential risk areas.
• Protect whistle blowers.
Supplier adherence to our values
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with our values we have in place a supply chain compliance programme.
• All Secret Madison customers have the option to remain anonymous and be categorised as highest risk to Secret Madison advertisers.
• Customers that have validated identity have demonstrated transparency and trust becomes a matter for adults to measure (Secret Madison cannot endorse either).
Secret Madison reserves the right to verify all identities, advertiser or customer, via all available and legal means, which may include criminal and financial histories that are in the public domain.
Secret Madison has a dedicated compliance team, which consists of experts from the following skill-sectors, all of which are internationally experienced:
• Human Rights
• Data Protection
Our effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking
is proud to report that we have and will continue to be a partner of human rights and enforcement agencies in our obligation to report and support prosecution of abusers of human rights.
