About BV Gaming Limited and Parimatch
BV Gaming Limited (trading as “Parimatch”) is an online gambling company headquartered and incorporated in Gibraltar. It is part of a wider group of companies, whose parent company is Newcote International Limited, a company also incorporated in Gibraltar.
Online gambling is a highly regulated industry and Parimatch puts legal and regulatory compliance at the heart of its business. Parimatch has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery or human trafficking. To achieve these standards and to maintain its position in the industry, Parimatch requires compliance from all its employees, business partners and members of its supply chain with all applicable laws and regulations, including the MSA.
BV Gaming Limited has offices in Gibraltar, Hungary and the UK and it holds operating licences issued by the competent authorities of Gibraltar, Great Britain Ireland and Ontario, Canada . It provides its services to the residents of 49 countries. BV Gaming Limited's British licensed online gambling business operates from Gibraltar and its United Kingdom based entities are non-gambling operating companies, all of which either provide services to the rest of BV Gaming's group companies or are holding companies of the group.
Sustainable Procurement and Supply Chain Management
Parimatch's business is highly technical, providing entertainment services rather than tangible products. Its supply chain is therefore predominantly highly skilled and technical in nature, mainly within the information technology, sports data, professional services and marketing sectors.
Parimatch's approach to sustainable procurement promotes working with industry leading, reputable, socially responsible and ethical third parties. Parimatch includes contractual provisions to ensure that these third parties are compliant with all applicable laws.
Parimatch's supplier-selection and due diligence processes rely on industry-leading reports, which notify the company of the organizations and individuals which either have committed, or are under investigation for, human rights violations and other humanitarian crimes, such as, but not limited to:
- People and/or organ trafficking
- Modern slavery
- Promotion of, and involvement in, illegal prostitution
- Genocide and war crimes
Wherever possible, Parimatch further minimizes its supply chain risk by keeping much of its business in-house, allowing it to closely monitor the working conditions throughout its business.
Training and Awareness
Parimatch ensures ethical practices by i) requiring its staff to complete comprehensive inductions and ongoing training programmes ii) providing its staff with easy access to a wide range of guidance, policies and procedures. Taken together, these measures limit the risk of Parimatch's supply chain and business being affected by modern slavery and human trafficking. Parimatch reviews the efficacy of these measures on an ongoing basis.
This statement has been reviewed and approved by the directors of BV Gaming Limited and will be reviewed at least once every 52 weeks.
