Introduction

This Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement is a response to Section 54(1), Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and relates to actions and activities for the financial year ending 30 November 2021.

Zookx Ltd t/as Private Detectives Corporation ('the Company', 'we', 'us' or 'our') is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking violations in its own operations, its supply chain, and its products. We have zero-tolerance towards slavery and require our supply chain to comply with our values.

We work with a number of key direct suppliers, who provide us with goods, such as equipment for our premises, and services, such as intelligence data, IT software and marketing services.
