SpiderCloud Wireless’s Commitment to Responsible Sourcing

In 2010, the United States Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, also known as the Dodd-Frank Act, was adopted.  Among other things, the Dodd-Frank Act required the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission enact rules obligating certain publicly traded companies to report whether the products they directly or indirectly manufacture contain Tantalum (Ta), Tungsten (W), Tin (Sn) and Gold (Au) (collectively “Conflict Minerals”).  The goal of the Conflict Minerals rule is to help end human rights abuses committed by armed militant groups who gain financing from the mines that control the Conflict Minerals in the Democratic Republic of Congo (“DRC“) and the nine African countries that share borders with DRC (collectively, the “Conflict Region”). 

Although SpiderCloud Wireless is not a publicly traded company and we do not directly purchase any raw minerals, we are committed to transparency in our supply chain and to conflict free sourcing.  To that end, SpiderCloud Wireless has requested its component suppliers be DRC conflict free, perform responsible in-region sourcing and utilize smelters or refiners that are CFSP-compliant. Our efforts related to Conflict Minerals are aligned to the work of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition® (EICC®) and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSi). More information may be viewed at www.eicc.info and the associated conflict-free sourcing initiative www.conflictfreesmelter.org.  Concerns regarding this policy of violations can be reported as follows.
