Our Policies & Articles

POLICY STATEMENT 

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, and human trafficking (“modern slavery”), all of which include the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. 

 

Play it Green has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery within its business and supply chains. 

 

This policy applies to all persons: 

(a) working for Play It Green, or on our behalf, in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, interns and agents (“Play It Green Staff”); and 

(b) our contractors, external consultants, agencies, third-party representatives, and business partners (“Suppliers”). 

Play It Green is committed to: 

(a) acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships; 

(b) implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our business or in any of our supply chains; and 

(c) ensuring there is transparency in our approach to tackling modern slavery in our business and in our supply chains consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. 

We expect the same high standards from all of our Suppliers. As part of our contracting process, we include specific prohibitions against modern slavery, and we expect that our Suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards. 

 

IDENTIFYING MODERN SLAVERY 

Modern slavery may be found in: 

(a) our business, for example our cleaning and catering workforce; 

(b) our supply chains; 

(c) outsourced activities, particularly to jurisdictions that may not have adequate modern slavery safeguards.

There is no typical victim of modern slavery, and some victims do not understand they have been exploited and are entitled to help and support. However, the following key signs could indicate that someone may be a victim of modern slavery or human trafficking: 

(a) The person is not in possession of their own passport, identification or travel documents.

(b) The person is acting as though they are being instructed or coached by someone else. 

(c) The person allows others to speak for them when spoken to directly. 

(d) The person is dropped off and collected from work. 

(e) The person is withdrawn or appears frightened. 

(f) The person does not seem to be able to contact friends or family freely. 

(g) The person has limited social interaction or contact with people outside of their immediate environment. The above list is not exhaustive. A person may display a number of the indicators set out above, but they may not necessarily be a victim of slavery or trafficking.

 

RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS POLICY AND COMPLIANCE 

The Management Board has overall responsibility for ensuring this policy complies with Play It Green’s legal and ethical obligations. 

The Legal Team has primary and responsibility for implementing this policy, and dealing with any queries about it. 

All Play it Green Staff members must comply with this policy. 

All Suppliers must comply with this policy. 

 

REPORTING MODERN SLAVERY 

Play it Green Staff and Suppliers must report any incidence or suspicion of modern slavery at the earliest possible stage to: 

(a) If you are a member of Play It Green Staff, your Line Manager; or 

(b) If you are a Supplier, your primary account manager or business contact with Play It Green

 

PUBLICATION OF THIS POLICY 

This policy is available to staff, suppliers and general public on the Play It Green website 

 

BREACHES OF THIS POLICY 

Any Play It Green staff member who breaches this policy may face disciplinary action, which could result in dismissal for misconduct or gross misconduct. 

The relevant member of Play It Green may terminate its relationship with a Supplier if it is in breach this policy. Alternatively, the relevant member of Play It Green may elect to work with the Supplier to resolve such issues. 

 

POLICY REVIEW 

The companies lead executive, CEO or Managing Director, in conjunction with the Human Resources and Legal team is responsible for reviewing this policy as necessary to ensure that it meets legal and ethical requirements and reflects best practice. 

This policy does not form part of any contract of employment and may be amended at any time.

Cookie Policy of Play It Green

 

This document informs Users about the technologies that help Play It Green to achieve the purposes described below. Such technologies allow the Owner to access and store information (for example by using a Cookie) or use resources (for example by running a script) on a User’s device as they interact with Play It Green.

 

For simplicity, all such technologies are defined as “Trackers” within this document – unless there is a reason to differentiate.

 

For example, while Cookies can be used on both web and mobile browsers, it would be inaccurate to talk about Cookies in the context of mobile apps as they are a browser-based Tracker. For this reason, within this document, the term Cookies is only used where it is specifically meant to indicate that particular type of Tracker.

 

Some of the purposes for which Trackers are used may also require the User’s consent. Whenever consent is given, it can be freely withdrawn at any time following the instructions provided in this document.

 

Play It Green uses Trackers managed directly by the Owner (so-called “first-party” Trackers) and Trackers that enable services provided by a third-party (so-called “third-party” Trackers). Unless otherwise specified within this document, third-party providers may access the Trackers managed by them.

 

The validity and expiration periods of Cookies and other similar Trackers may vary depending on the lifetime set by the Owner or the relevant provider. Some of them expire upon termination of the User’s browsing session.

 

In addition to what’s specified in the descriptions within each of the categories below, Users may find more precise and updated information regarding lifetime specification as well as any other relevant information – such as the presence of other Trackers – in the linked privacy policies of the respective third-party providers or by contacting the Owner.

Additionally, whenever the use of Trackers is based on consent, Users can provide or withdraw such consent by setting their preferences within the cookie notice or by updating such preferences accordingly via the relevant consent-preferences widget, if available.

 

It is also possible, via relevant browser or device features, to delete previously stored Trackers, including those used to remember the User’s initial consent.

Other Trackers in the browser’s local memory may be cleared by deleting the browsing history.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES POLICY


We are committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all staff and job applicants. We aim to create a working environment in which all individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination or harassment, and in which all decisions are based on merit.

 

We do not discriminate against staff on the basis of their gender, sexual orientation, marital or civil partner status, gender reassignment, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, disability or age (the protected characteristics).

 

The principles of non-discrimination and equality of opportunity also apply to the way in which staff treat visitors, clients, customers, suppliers and former staff members.

 

All staff have a duty to act in accordance with this policy and treat colleagues with dignity at all times, and not to discriminate against or harass other members of staff, regardless of their status.

 

Breaches of the policy


If you believe that you may have been discriminated against you are encouraged to raise the matter through our Grievance Procedure. If you believe that you may have been subject to harassment you are encouraged to raise the matter through our Anti-harassment and Bullying Policy. If you are uncertain which applies or need advice on how to proceed you should speak to the Managing Director.

 

Should the matter involve the Managing Director and therefore you feel unable to complain, then inform another member of the companies Board of Directors. Such behaviours and actions do not fit our company values and it is imperative there is a strong culture of openness and accountability.

 

Allegations regarding potential breaches of this policy will be treated in confidence and investigated in accordance with the relevant procedure. Staff who make such allegations in good faith will not be victimised or treated less favourably as a result. False allegations which are found to have been made in bad faith will, however, be dealt with under our Disciplinary Procedure.

 

Any member of staff who is found to have committed an act of discrimination or harassment will be subject to disciplinary action. Such behaviour may constitute gross misconduct and, as such, may result in summary dismissal. We take a strict approach to serious breaches of this policy.
