is committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethical
conduct and integrity in all areas of business.
On August 22, 2012,
the Securities and Exchange Commission adopted a new rule
and form, as mandated by Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall
Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. This act requires
all manufacturers who file certain reports with the SEC to
disclose whether these products they manufacturer or contract
to manufacture contain conflict minerals that are "necessary
to the functionality or production" of those products.The
conflict of minerals is defined as tantalum, tin, tungsten,
gold and any other mineral or its derivatives determined by
the U.S Secretary of State to be financing conflict in the
Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries.
We are committed to ensure we fully comply with Section 1502
of the Dodd-Frank. We do not knowingly source any product
containing "conflict minerals" and continue to work
with our sources to ensure our compliance.
