FACTORY CUFFLINKS DIRECT IS COMMITED TO ETHICAL TRADING
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At A. Oppenheimer & Co Ltd (Factory Cufflinks Direct) we support Ethical Trading and especially the movement to promote improved working conditions for workers throughout our supply chain. We actively encourage our suppliers to comply with National Law and international labour standards and general common sense good and fair practice.

We are especially aware of the dangers to migrant workers, part timers, women and home workers and of course we have particular concern to ensure that there should be no exploitation of children in the production of any of our products.

We seek to ensure that we and our suppliers meet at least the following labour standards:

- Employment should be; free and not forced, bonded or involuntary and employees should be free to leave with notice should they wish to. Deposits, ID papers and other materials should not be required to be lodged with employers
- Child labour will not be used.
- No racial, sexual or other forms of discrimination are practiced
- Conditions of work are safe and hygienic, specific attention should be paid to avoiding injury and accident as a result of employment. Workers should be trained properly. Safe drinking water and sanitary conditions for the storage of food should be provided.
- Rights to collective bargaining and freedom of association should be allowed
- An open attitude should be adopted by employers to Trades Unions
- Excessive working hours should not be worked and a fair living wage should be paid in accordance with national legal standards.
- Where possible regular work should be provided, subject to National Legislation.
- Physical, sexual or verbal abuse or any form of harassment is prohibited.
- Sensitive information held on employees will be treated discretely and in confidence and not used in any for coercion or exploitation

We encourage and seek external advice, reports and inspection and would seek to act in a timely manner should we receive any information which would suggest that any of our suppliers is failing to comply with our standards.

We are sensitive to the needs of employers, the need for economic good sense and the need to be given a chance and so we work together with managers to try and improve conditions with a team approach. Should serious breaches of good practice persist, we undertake to terminate such a relationship.
We undertake to try and work with our suppliers to have realistic time frames to produce goods such that they do not feel pressured into breaching standards.

We do not have any involvement as a company with the production, distribution or selling of military arms.

We will not be involved in the violation antitrust or completion laws and seek to provide a fair product at a fair price. We will always compete fairly with our competitors and not breach third party intellectual rights.

We will deal honestly with government bodies and third parties. We will not indulge in bribery or falsification.

Ethical Trading Standards are the responsibility of the whole company in any purchasing decision and are co ordinate and reviewed and resourced at Board level.

We seek to source goods produced in an environmentally responsible manner. We seek to minimize the impact on the environment in the production and distribution of our goods by disposing of waste responsibly, minimizing the use of packaging and scarce resources, where possible recycling. We seek to minimize within the confines of safety the use of energy in the production processes.

This standard can be considered as a public announcement, to both customers and suppliers alike, of our intention to comply with ethical trading standards.
