For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature.

3.4 If you fail to provide personal data
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have entered into, or are negotiating, with you, then if you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract (for example, to provide you with goods or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us.
3.5 How is your personal data collected?
We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:
Direct interactions: You may give us your Identity, Contact and/or Financial Data (as defined above) by filling in forms or by corresponding with us by post, telephone, email or otherwise. This includes personal data you provide when you:

We may collect this personal data by using cookies and other similar technologies. We may also receive Technical Data about you if you visit other websites employing our cookies. Please see our Cookies Policy for further details.
CCTV and similar surveillance systems: If you visit any of the sites where our services are available we may collect images through our use of CCTV (or similar technology) which we may use to protect our assets (or the assets of third parties such as other customers) and to ensure the safety and wellbeing of visitors and staff.
Third parties or publicly available sources: We will receive personal data about you from various third parties and public sources as set out below:

• Advertising networks and search information providers.
• Contact, Financial and Transaction Data from providers of technical, payment and delivery services.
• Identity and Contact Data from data brokers or aggregators.
• Identity and Contact Data from publicly available sources such as Companies House and the Electoral Register.
3.6 How we use your personal data
We will only use your personal data where there is a need for us to do so which cannot be fulfilled in any other way and the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data for the following purposes:
• Where we need to in order to perform the contract we have entered, or are about to enter, into with you.
• To resolve a query relating to the supply of goods or services by us to you.
• Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
• Where we need to in order to comply with a legal obligation.
We do not currently use any automated decision-making technology or conduct profiling of the personal data that we collect.
3.7 Lawful basis
Data protection law requires the processing of personal data to be ‘lawful’ and this means it must be undertaken on one of six grounds set out in the legislation. We only use four of these to process personal data, the four we use are set out below and which one we use will depend on which is the most appropriate taking into account the purpose(s) for which, we are processing your data.
Legitimate Interests: means our interests (or the interests of a third party) in conducting and managing our business to enable us (or the third party) to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact (both positive and negative) on you and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
Performance of a Contract: means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.
Comply with a legal obligation: means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation that we are subject to, for example we may be required to share CCTV footage with the police to enable them to investigate if a criminal offence has been committed.
Consent: means where you have explicitly agreed to the use of your data for a specific purpose. Generally we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data except to send marketing when we will generally get your consent (although consent is not always necessary, see Section 4 below).
3.8 Change of purpose
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising. We will only send marketing emails or text messages;
• after we have obtained your explicit consent, or
• where we have obtained your email address in the course of providing, or negotiating the provision of, goods or services and the email/text message relates to similar goods or services provided by us. You will be informed, and given the opportunity to object to, this use of your Contact Data at the time it is collected.
You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, you can do this by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link which will be in every marketing email we send or by contacting us using the details in 1.4 above.
5. Disclosure of your personal information
5.1. Sharing your data
We may share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in 3.6 above.
Internal Third Parties – other companies in the GRIDSERVE Group acting as joint controllers or data processors.
External Third Parties – Such as third-party service providers (subject to a contract which controls how they use your data), professional advisers acting as data processors or joint controllers (including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers who provide consultancy, banking, legal, insurance and accounting services), HM Revenue & Customs, regulators (e.g. Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)) and other authorities acting as data processors or joint controllers based in the United Kingdom who require reporting of processing activities in certain circumstances. Third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer or merge parts of our business or our assets, alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy notice.
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
6. International transfers
We may transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) but whenever we do we will ensure that it is either to a country where the laws provide an equivalent level of protection for your personal data or where this is not the case we will put in place appropriate safeguards, such as binding contracts which incorporate terms approved by the ICO, to ensure that your data is adequately protected and your personal data rights are maintained.
7. Data security
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know; they will only process your personal data on our instructions and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you if a breach which presents a risk to your rights and freedoms occurs.
8. Data retention
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, and, where relevant, for the purpose of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements (in which case it may be retained for up to six years). We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect of our relationship with you.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the purposes for which we process your personal data (and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means), the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
9. Your legal rights
You have a number of rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data which are set out below. You will not have to pay a fee to exercise any of these rights, we may however charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive; alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month, occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests; if this is the case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
The rights you have in relation to your personal data are:
Right of access (commonly known as a ‘Data Subject Access Request’): You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not we are processing your personal data and if we are to be provided with certain information to enable you to check whether we are lawfully processing it and to receive a copy of the personal data we hold.
Right to rectification: If the data we hold about you is inaccurate or incomplete you have the right to ask us to correct, or add to, the data, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Right to erasure (commonly known as Right to be Forgotten): This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data but only if there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Right to restrict processing of your personal data: This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:
• If you want us to establish the data’s accuracy.
• Where our use of the data is unlawful, but you do not want us to erase it.
• Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
• You have objected to our use of your data, but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Right to request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party: We will provide to a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to data processed by automated means which you initially provided consent for us to use, or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Right to Object: you have the right to object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes, including profiling.
Right not to be subject to automated decision making: In some circumstances you have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing (including profiling) if that processing has legal, or similarly significant, effects. As stated in 3.6 above we do not currently undertake any automated decision-making or profiling of personal data.
Where we are relying on consent to process your personal data you also have the right to withdraw consent at any time. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us using the details in Section1.4. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

3.2. When acting on your behalf as a broker, GRIDSERVE will introduce you to a panel of Funders who may be able to offer you a hire arrangement. When we introduce you to a Funder for the Vehicle you are interested in then, if you decide to enter into an agreement with them, we may receive a payment(s) or other benefits from the Funder. Typically this will be either a fixed fee or a fixed percentage of the Vehicle price. The payment we receive may vary between Funders and product types, but it does not impact the finance rate offered.
3.3. Once you have a quote that meets your requirements, we will submit your application to the Funder. To process your application the Funder will need to carry out background and affordability checks. They may use public and personal data from a variety of sources including credit reference agencies and other organisations. This will include conducting a credit search, for which they may require additional financial information from you; we will let you know if this is the case. Please be aware that credit searches can impact your credit rating, as any credit reference search will appear on your credit report whether or not your application proceeds.
3.4. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents aged 18 years or over only.

Simply share their details and we’ll do the rest. We’ll give them a call and upon the delivery of their shiny new electric vehicle you both receive rewards: you (the referrer) get £100, and they (the referee) get £50. The monies are issued onto a GRIDSERVE Virtual Reward Card which is a Mastercard prepaid digital card.

Referrer Means the person introducing us to their friend/family.
Referee Means the person being referred by the Referrer.
Rewards Means the money offered to both the Referrer (£100) and the Referee (£50), upon the delivery of an electric vehicle leased through GRIDSERVE.

3. Terms & Conditions
The promoter of the reward is GRIDSERVE UK OMM Limited, whose registered office is Thorney Weir House, Thorney Mill Lane, Iver, SL0 9AQ (referred to as “GRIDSERVE”, “we”, “us”, “our”).
These terms and conditions apply to any and all participants in the referral scheme, whether as a Referrer or a Referee.

GRIDSERVE reserves the right to determine, at its sole discretion, whether a successful referral has been made.
The GRIDSERVE Virtual Reward Card is available to customers who have qualified via the GRIDSERVE Referral Program. The GRIDSERVE Virtual Reward Card is only available with orders made via the Leasing Team.
Where a participant receives any reward from us, that participant agrees to comply with these conditions. The reward must not be sold, transferred, auctioned, or used for commercial gain.

The GRIDSERVE Virtual Reward Card must be claimed within 90 days from issue date. Once you have completed the online claim form and your details have been received, your order will be checked to ensure you still qualify. If you do, you will be sent an email where you can register for the digital reward card.

4. Acting in Good Faith
GRIDSERVE has introduced the referral programme for benefit of GRIDSERVE, its customers, and the planet. This is done in good faith, and we expect the same good faith in return. Referral rewards may be withheld or denied if we believe a GRIDSERVE customer is acting in bad faith, including but not limited to having any outstanding payments or being in breach of their lease agreement. Commercialising, advertising, selling, or paying for the use of referrals is not appropriate, and we may not honour such rewards.
We cannot cover every possible scenario, but we promise to be fair and act in good faith.

The purpose of the Integrated Management System Policy (IMS-POL) of GRIDSERVE® is to ensure the health, safety, quality, and welfare of those affected by the company’s activities. The Directors of the business have ultimate responsibility for formulating and implementing this policy. The policy statement is as follows:
Our business objectives and targets are established according to the nature of our activities, business and other legal requirements. Annual Quality, Environmental and Health and Safety objectives are set and reviewed on a regular basis by the Senior Management Team.
GRIDSERVE® accepts that it has moral and legal duties and responsibilities for the health, safety, and welfare of its employees and where applicable, contractors, customers, members of the public and others who may be affected by its business operations. It is, therefore, the policy of the Company that all work activities shall be carried out in such a manner as to ensure that ‘as far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety, environmental compliance, and welfare of ‘those at risk’ and the environment, will not be adversely affected. The company recognises that to comply with its duties and responsibilities as set out within the relevant laws of the jurisdictions where GRIDSERVE® operates, consideration for health, safety, environmental and welfare must be considered as an equal with all other commercial considerations.
Senior management will provide sufficient resources to ensure that the management system is fully implemented, fit for purpose, and communicated to interested parties to ensure compliance and continual improvement of the management system. GRIDSERVE® will consult and engage staff and others to promote and maintain safe and healthy conditions across all aspects of the business and will give full backing both to this policy and to those with responsibilities to administer it.
All employees and where applicable contractors who authorise or control work activities are responsible for always ensuring that welfare facilities are available and that the work is carried out in compliance with all relevant standards and legislation. Specific attention is to be made to ensure that (i) where there may be a significant risk from work activities a risk assessment is carried out and (ii) where materials and products are supplied by others that they comply with all the relevant legislative requirements. They must ensure that their responsibilities are delegated during their absence.
Employees and Contractors are actively encouraged to plan and carry out their work activities in a safe and considerate manner with due care to their own health, safety, and welfare and that of others as required legally and morally. Appropriate and commensurate action will be taken against any employee or contractor who flagrantly disregards safety instructions and/or approved safe working practices. Where hazards cannot be totally removed (due to e.g., the location and/or the environment and/or the nature of the plant/equipment in use) or where control measures are not available or practicable, then the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) will be assigned. Employees and sub-contractors are to be actively encouraged to use such protective equipment, always. irrespective of the degree of perceived risk when this has been assigned.
The company will ‘as far as reasonably practicable’ prevent injury and ill-health and provide a safe and healthy workplace and ensure that contractors and suppliers employed to carry out work on their behalf are competent; and that they conduct their work activities in accordance with the company IMS policy. The full details of GRIDSERVE® ’s commitment to health, safety, environment and quality and its individual area policies are set out in the IMS- P of which this document is a derived. The implementation and review of this IMS will be undertaken by the Senior Management Team, led by the COO supported by the Head of HSQE. The IMS will be audited and monitored to ensure continual improvement and will be reviewed as a whole, when required, or following the outcomes of the objective monitoring and audit process; this Occupational Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (IMS-POL) and Policy Statement will be reviewed annually. IMS policy will be communicated and made available to all employees, consultants, contractors and other relevant stakeholders.

IMS-POL-HSQE v1.3 – Policy Statement 2022
The GRIDSERVE® Supplier Sustainability Manual sets out the standards we expect our suppliers to follow in the conduct of their business to ensure that they are aligned with GRIDSERVE’s values, relating in particular to the topics of business ethics, working conditions, and environmental protection.
This Manual, and the requirements contained in it, apply to all potential, incumbent and active suppliers to GRIDSERVE®, wherever in the world they are based.
3.0 Policy statement
GRIDSERVE® sets high standards for business ethics, working conditions and environmental protection in all its locations. Since a large proportion of the value creation is through the supply base, we naturally have the same expectations of our suppliers as we have for ourselves. We need our business partners to share our commitment to corporate responsibility, not just in the development and manufacturing of products, but also in conducting their business.
Sustainability, social responsibility and compliance is inclusive of our Supplier Declaration. We incorporate corporate responsibility and sustainability topics in our supplier monitoring activities and quality audits carried out with potential, incumbent and active suppliers. We award, and continue to provide business to those suppliers who commit to act fairly and with integrity towards their stakeholders, observe the applicable rules of law, support and respect internationally proclaimed human rights, and demonstrate commitment to protecting the environment. We largely determine the success of our Supplier Sustainability Program through our suppliers’ ability to conduct business in a way that recognises workers’ rights, as well as the rights of others, secures a healthy and safe working environment for their workers, and protects the environment. Accordingly, GRIDSERVE® will promote self-assessment and capability-building initiatives, and expects suppliers to take an active part therein.
We promote an approach of shared commitment. We will work with our suppliers in cases where they need to improve their performance; together, we will strive for continued improvement.
GRIDSERVE® may modify this Supplier Sustainability Manual from time to time on giving the supplier at least 14 days’ notice in writing (which includes email).
3.1 Sustainability Guidelines for Suppliers
3.1.1 Business partners
The supplier must display the highest standards of integrity and ethics in its business dealings with GRIDSERVE®.
Accordingly, the supplier must have a Code of Conduct in place, for itself as well as its suppliers and subcontractors, which reflects the principles of our Supplier Declaration. Its highest management must endorse the supplier’s Code of Conduct. Further, the supplier must make the Code of Conduct available to all stakeholders and have in place a related mechanism for reporting issues.
The supplier must train all its employees on the principles of its Code of Conduct. GRIDSERVE® has the right to require the supplier to present evidence of such training and the extent to which the entire work force has received the training. GRIDSERVE® may ask individual employees of the supplier whether they have participated in Code of Conduct training.
3.1.2 Compliance with Laws and Regulations
The supplier shall, in addition to complying with the standards set out in this Supplier Sustainability Manual, ensure compliance with all applicable UK laws and regulations and, if applicable, the laws and regulations of other countries where it does business. Without making any exceptions to the obligations outlined in the preceding sentence, this means that the supplier must have in place adequate compliance programs and policies. Further internal verification procedures shall be in place to assure that the supplier will never:
• Take part in, induce to enter into, or facilitate cartels or other illegal anti competitive cooperation.
• Report inaccurate financial data to GRIDSERVE® or to the public (including without limitation to the authorities).
• Report inaccurate information to GRIDSERVE® concerning production materials, finished goods, capital equipment, moulds and tooling, samples and prototypes, repaired or returned products, and technical information related to any parts purchased by GRIDSERVE®.
• Disclose trade secrets and confidential information of GRIDSERVE® to unauthorised parties, or use such information for any purpose other than that for which it was disclosed.
• Apply for registration for any intellectual property rights based on information received from GRIDSERVE®.
• Incorporate any third party intellectual property rights in the parts manufactured, sold and supplied to GRIDSERVE® without first having obtained approval therefor.
The above list is not exhaustive. Accordingly, the supplier must adopt a process to identify, monitor and understand applicable laws and regulations.
If there is any conflict between applicable law or regulations, the provisions of an agreement with GRIDSERVE®, and the provisions of this Manual, the Supplier shall bring the conflict to the attention of GRIDSERVE® who will advise the supplier which standard shall apply.
3.1.3 Improper payments, hospitality and gifts, and conflict of interests
GRIDSERVE® strictly prohibits its employees from making direct or indirect offers or promises of bribes, facilitation payments or other undue advantages for the purpose of obtaining advantages in business.
In addition, the supplier shall not take part in, influence, or attempt to influence any decision, which can give rise to any actual or perceived conflict of interests with GRIDSERVE®. The supplier shall implement internal policies and guidelines to prevent bribery and/or conflicts of interests, such policies and guidelines to be no less strict than the requirements of GRIDSERVE®. In addition the supplier shall ensure that it does not:
• directly or indirectly offer, promise, or accept bribes, facilitation payments or undue advantages on behalf of GRIDSERVE®;
• directly or indirectly offer, promise, or accept bribes, facilitation payments or undue advantages to GRIDSERVE® employees.
3.1.4 Human Rights and Labour Practice
The supplier shall never employ children or forced labour. In addition, the supplier must uphold the human rights of workers, and treat them with dignity and respect as understood by the international community. This applies to all employees including temporary, migrant, student, contract, direct employees, and any other type of workers. Consequently, the supplier shall award the following rights to all employees as a bare minimum:
• The employee shall freely choose all employment. This means that forced, bonded (including debt bonded), and indentured labour, involuntary prison labour, or slavery shall not be used.
• The supplier shall not use trafficking of persons. This includes transporting, harbouring, recruiting, transferring or receiving persons by means of threat, force, coercion, deception, abduction or fraud for labour or services. In addition, all work must be voluntary and workers shall be free to leave the work at any time or terminate their employment.
• Employers and agents may not hold or otherwise destroy, conceal, confiscate or deny access by employees to employees’ identity or immigration documents, such as government-issued identification, passports or work permits, unless law requires the holding of work permits. The use of personal document retention shall never bind workers to employment or restrict their freedom of movement. • The supplier shall not require an employee to pay for obtaining or otherwise maintaining its employment. Thus, employees shall not be charged any fees or costs for recruitment, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, including costs associated with travel, processing official documents and work visas in both home and host countries.
• The employee shall have the right to have the employment contract recorded in writing and provided in a language they understand. The employment contract shall clearly indicate their rights and responsibilities with regard to wages, working hours, and other working and employment conditions. Supplier shall provide employment contracts to migrant workers prior to the commencement of their employment, ideally before the employee commits to actions or expenditure required to take up the role (e.g. relocating). The use of supplemental agreements and the practice of contract substitution (the replacement of an original contract or any of its provisions with those that are less favourable) are strictly prohibited.
• Supplier shall guarantee employees a salary pursuant to law and/or collective bargaining agreement. Accordingly, salary to employees shall comply with all applicable wage laws, including those relating to minimum wages, overtime hours and legally mandated benefits. Suppliers shall not permit deductions from wages as a disciplinary measure, unless permitted by law and/or collective bargaining agreement. Moreover, the employees shall be provided with a timely and understandable wage statement that includes sufficient information to verify accurate compensation for work performed during the period to which the salary relates.
• Freedom of association. The supplier shall respect the right of all employees to form and join trade unions of their own choosing, to bargain collectively and to engage in peaceful assembly, and respect the right of workers to refrain from such activities. Additionally employees shall be able to openly communicate and share ideas and concerns with management regarding working conditions and/or management practices, without fear of discrimination, reprisal, intimidation, or harassment.
The supplier shall further secure:
• That is does not employ children. Child labour is not to be used in any stage of manufacturing or otherwise in the supplier’s business. The term “child” refers to any person under the age for completing compulsory education, or under the minimum age for employment in the country, whichever is greatest. For the avoidance of doubt, the use of legitimate workplace learning programs, which comply with all laws and regulations in that country, is permissible.
• That, in particular, it does not risk the health and safety of young employees (persons not deemed a child but younger than 18) or offer less favourable terms of employment. Young employees shall not perform work that is likely to jeopardise their health or safety, including night shifts and/or overtime. The supplier shall ensure proper management of young employees through accurate records, rigorous due diligence of educational partners, and protection of students’ rights in accordance with applicable law and regulations. The supplier shall provide appropriate support and training to all young employees. In the absence of local law, the wage rate for young workers, students, interns and apprentices shall be at least the same wage rate as other entry-level workers performing equal or similar tasks.
• That it does not force its employees to work excessive hours. Employee strain leads to reduced productivity, increased employee turnover and increased injury and illness. Workweeks are not to exceed the maximum set by local law. Further, supplier shall allow employees at least one day off every seven days and a workweek should not be more than 60 hours per week, including overtime, except in emergency, an unusual situation or as part of a legally recognised collective bargaining agreement. Supplier shall not make employees work overtime under the threat of penalty, dismissal, or denunciation to authorities. No worker shall be made to work overtime as a disciplinary measure.
• That it does not discriminate. The supplier shall at all times have anti discrimination policies that provide equal employment opportunities regardless of worker or applicant’s race, colour, age gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or national origin, disability, pregnancy, religion, political affiliation, union association, covered veteran status, marital status or any other distinct characteristic. Medical testing or physical examination of any employee for the purposes of discrimination shall not be permitted. Further, supplier should make reasonable accommodations for religious practice by workers. Policies shall be up to date with applicable legislation, and supplier shall continuously verify compliance with said policies. Records of such verifications shall be made available to GRIDSERVE® upon request.
• That the supplier’s overall treatment of its employees is, at all times, characterised by respect for the individual. Therefore, the supplier must ascertain that there is no harsh and/or inhumane treatment including any sexual harassment, sexual abuse, corporal punishment, mental or physical coercion, or verbal abuse of its employees; nor is there to be the threat of any such treatment. Disciplinary policies and procedures in support of these requirements shall be clearly defined and communicated to the employees.
• The supplier shall implement effective procedures to enable employees to raise a grievance and/or report activity which is illegal, immoral, illicit, unsafe or fraudulent (whistleblowing), and shall ensure that any employee who submits a grievance, or makes a whistleblowing report, does not suffer any prejudice or retaliation of any kind.
3.1.5 Health & Safety Standards
We base our health and safety requirements on national laws and ISO 45001/OHSAS18001. A safe and healthy work environment enhances productivity, employee morale, worker retention, and the quality of products and services. Accordingly, we expect the supplier to provide and maintain a safe workplace and take proactive measures to prevent occupational injuries and hazards. The supplier must agree to provide GRIDSERVE® with records relating to health and safety programs, training and violations when requested. In addition, the supplier shall:
• Implement and maintain emergency response procedures. Potential emergencies and events need to be identified and assessed, and their impact minimised by implementing emergency plans and response procedures which include emergency reporting, employee notification, evacuation procedures, worker training, drills, appropriate fire detection and suppression equipment, adequate exit facilities, and recovery plans. Such plans and procedures shall focus on minimising harm to life, the environment and property.
• Train its employees. The supplier shall provide the employees with appropriate workplace health and safety training in their primary language. • Post health and safety related information, such as emergency procedures and potential safety hazards within the facility, in the primary language of the worker.
• Issue personal protective equipment. Exposure of employees to chemical, biological and physical agents shall be identified, evaluated, and controlled. Engineering or administrative controls must be used to control overexposures. When hazards cannot be adequately controlled by such means, worker health is to be protected by appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). Further, employees shall be trained in proper use and limitations of use. PPE shall be replaced as often as is necessary at no cost to the worker.
• Identify risks and report concerns. The supplier shall identify the health and safety, and labour practice risks associated with its operations. Risk assessment processes shall determine the relative significance for each risk, and appropriate procedural and physical controls to be implemented to ensure regulatory compliance, and to control the identified risks. All areas should be included in a risk assessment for health and safety including plant and facilities, warehouse and storage facilities, support equipment, laboratories and test areas, sanitation facilities and bathrooms, kitchen/cafeteria, and worker housing and dormitories. Production and other machinery shall be evaluated for safety hazards. Physical guards, interlocks and barriers are to be provided and properly maintained where machinery presents an injury hazard to employees. Exposure of employees to the hazards of physically demanding tasks, including manual material handling and heavy or repetitive lifting, prolonged standing, and highly repetitive or forceful assembly tasks is to be identified, evaluated and controlled.
• Install procedures and systems to prevent, manage, track and report occupational injury and illness including provisions to:
– encourage employee reporting;
– classify and record injury and illness cases;
– provide necessary medical treatment;
– investigate cases and implement corrective actions to eliminate their causes; and
– facilitate the return of workers to work.
3.1.6 Environmental Standards
We base our environmental requirements on national laws and ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. We expect our suppliers to establish an environmental management system that effectively manages risks, conserves natural resources, and protects the environment. Related efforts should support reductions in energy use, water use, waste production, greenhouse gas emissions, and air pollution. The supplier must agree to provide GRIDSERVE® with records relating to environmental performance, training, and violations when requested. In addition, the supplier shall;
• Secure environmental permits and reporting. All required environmental permits, approvals, and registrations are to be obtained, maintained and kept current and the applicable operational and reporting requirements are to be followed.
• Employ a plan for pollution prevention and energy resource reduction. The use of resources and generation of waste, of all types including energy, are to be reduced or eliminated at the source, or by practices such as modifying production, maintenance and facility processes, materials substitution, conservation, recycling, and the reuse of materials.
• Preserve water resource through assessment of water stress in operations and throughout the life cycle and by considering water management and sustainable use in operational planning.
• Identify hazardous substances. Chemicals and other materials posing a hazard if released to the environment are to be identified and managed to ensure their safe handling, movement, storage, use, recycling or reuse, and disposal.
• Reduce emissions and solid waste. The supplier shall implement a systematic approach to identify, manage, reduce, and responsibly dispose of or recycle solid waste (non-hazardous). Wastewater generated from operations, industrial processes and sanitation facilities are to be characterised, monitored, controlled and treated as required prior to discharge or disposal. In addition, measures should be implemented to reduce generation of wastewater. The supplier shall conduct routine monitoring of the performance of its wastewater treatment systems. Air emissions of volatile organic chemicals, aerosols, corrosives, particulates, ozone depleting chemicals, and combustion by-products generated from operations are to be characterised, routinely monitored, controlled, and treated as required prior to discharge. The supplier shall conduct routine monitoring of the performance of its air emission control systems.
3.1.7 Responsible Chemical Management
The supplier must adhere to all applicable laws, regulations and GRIDSERVE® requirements regarding prohibition or restriction of specific substances in products and manufacturing, including disclosure and labelling for the appropriate and safe use, proper handling, recycling and disposal of such substances. In addition, the supplier shall:
• Establish programs to collect data from material manufacturers for all components, identifying all substances that are in the final product. • Collect data regarding all process chemicals and intermediates known as toxic or potentially toxic. Measure data completeness against Bill of Materials (BOMs) and identify data shortages; assure data is traceable to the material manufacturers.
• Verify data is current and complete against product safety and regulatory requirements.
• Initiate appropriate changes to achieve compliance and reduce risks.
3.1.8 Conflict Minerals
Suppliers shall have a policy to reasonably assure that decisions and practices related to the purchase of Conflict Minerals (tin, tantalum and tungsten, their ores, and gold) used in the products they manufacture ensure respect for human rights and avoid contributing to conflict.
Suppliers shall exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of these minerals in accordance with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, and make their due diligence measures available to GRIDSERVE® upon request.
All suppliers understand and conform to GRIDSERVE’s expectations regarding Conflict Minerals as outlined above. Suppliers acting contrary to our position regarding Conflict Minerals must commit to implement a corrective action plan with a reasonable timeline.
3.1.9 Polysilicon supply chain issues
GRIDSERVE® is acutely aware of the issues affecting the polysilicon supply chain and, given the prevalence of the use of polysilicon in the manufacture of solar photovoltaic panels, considers this to be an area of heightened risk to the standards it sets for business ethics, working conditions and environmental protection. Suppliers who are involved in the supply of products containing polysilicon must take particular care to ensure that the provisions of this Manual, in particular those relating to Human Rights and Labour Practice (3.1.4), and Health & Safety Standards (3.1.5), are adhered to throughout the chain of supply for goods it manufactures for, or supplies to, GRIDSERVE®.
3.2 Corrective Action relating to reported violations
Where breaches of the Supplier Declaration are brought to the attention of GRIDSERVE® , the supplier shall prepare an action plan outlining the remedial actions it will take to rectify the breach. Where appropriate, GRIDSERVE® may conduct unannounced audits, in particular to substantiate specific supplier-related allegations concerning practices that may violate the Supplier Declaration. If it is proven that the supplier has violated the Supplier Declaration, the supplier shall compensate GRIDSERVE® for all costs, losses and liabilities incurred as a result thereof (including without limitation audits conducted by third parties).
