Modern slavery is a heinous crime and a morally reprehensible act that deprives a person’s liberty and dignity for another person’s gain. It is a real problem for millions of people around the world, including many in developed countries, who are being kept and exploited in various forms of slavery.
The following statement is a transparent disclosure of actions we have taken in support of our effort to understand and ensure that no form of human trafficking or modern slavery is exercised in connection with our business.
As a responsible corporate citizen, ReaQta intends to comply with the requirements of the United Kingdom’s Modern Slavery Act of 2015. ReaQta is committed to understanding potential modern slavery risks related to our business and ensuring that there is no modern slavery in its own business and supply chains.
At ReaQta, we have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and are fully committed to complying with all applicable laws in the countries in which we operate.
ReaQta offers endpoint protection and response solutions to businesses seeking protection from cyber threats such as exploits, malware and script-based attacks that can infect computing devices with the purpose of stealing data, profiting financially, or otherwise harming systems, individuals, or organizations.
ReaQta is currently headquartered in Molenpad 6, 1016 GM, Amsterdam, with our regional headquarters for Asia located in Singapore.
Given that our business consists of predominantly professionally qualified and highly skilled people and our supply chains do not involve the large volume of physical goods. We assess the risk of modern slavery within our business and supply chain to be extremely low. However, we are committed to preventing slavery in all of our corporate activities, and we take affirmative steps to ensure that our supply chains are free from forced or compulsory labor.
Supplier Due Diligence
We choose our suppliers with care and their integrity and ethical business practices form part of the selection criteria. We continuously monitor our suppliers to ensure that they remain in line with our requirements and our ethical standards.
Despite our very low risk, our supplier selection and on-boarding procedure include due diligence of the supplier’s reputation, respect for the law, compliance with health, safety and environmental standards, and references.
We purchase professional services, IT equipment and office materials, among other things, from third party suppliers and strive to conduct business with third-party suppliers who share our commitment to high ethical standards, and who operate in a responsible and ethical manner towards their workers and suppliers.
ReaQta is dedicated to ensuring that human rights are respected at all times. We expect our employees to maintain the highest ethical standards and comply with all applicable laws and company policies.
We encourage team members to report any suspected wrongdoing or dangers in relation to any activity that falls short of our code of conduct. By encouraging a culture of openness and accountability within ReaQta, we believe that it can help prevent illegal or unethical practices from occurring. Our culture is designed to make it easy for our team members to make disclosures without fear of reprisal. We provide a confidential and anonymous Corporate Ethics Violation Form to protect the identity of whistle-blowers.

ReaQta accepts that effective action to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chain requires constant monitoring and an effective response should issues be identified. Our management will continue to take a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking and will react accordingly to any transgression whether by our staff or by our suppliers.
We recognise that the risks from modern slavery and human trafficking are constantly evolving. We also recognise that efficient methods to identify and address modern slavery and human trafficking will be developed and enhanced. ReaQta will continue to monitor and evaluate such developments and our approach to preventing modern slavery will be reviewed annually so that we can constantly adapt and improve our approach.
