At Redstor, we are committed to conducting business with integrity and in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. We expect our suppliers and business partners to share this commitment and to adhere to the following code of conduct. It should be noted that it is the intention of this policy to outline the way in which Redstor and its suppliers will conduct themselves when entering a contractual relationship. It should be noted for the avoidance of doubt, that this policy is not intended to be legally enforceable nor to create any legal rights or obligations to undermine our contracts with suppliers.

Redstor and its suppliers alike may also be party to confidential information that is deemed necessary for the business relationship. Such information, even if not covered by contractual provisions, should be handled with the same care as information of similar sensitivity.
It is recognised that despite this mutual requirement for confidentiality, neither party is prevented from disclosing information if compelled to do so, by law.
Redstor expects suppliers to maintain sufficient whistleblowing policy documentation which facilitates employees reporting of any incidents or concerns anonymously, without repercussion nor fear of their safety.
Given the nature of our business, Redstor expects its suppliers to protect with reasonable technical and non-technical measures, the confidentiality, availability and security of their information assets and data within their protection.
