Conflict Minerals Policy

Working toward a better world

amigodata's Policy

amigodata understands the intent of the Conflict Minerals Rule adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding disclosure of conflict minerals sourced from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and surrounding areas in order to promote ethical sourcing. The rule applies to a public company using conflict minerals if the minerals are “necessary to the functionality or production” of a product manufactured or contracted to be manufactured by the company. The minerals at issue are Cassiterite, Columbite-Tantalite, Gold, Wolframite, and their derivatives, which are limited to Tin, Tantalum, Tungsten, and Gold (3TG) originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries. amigodata is not affected by the conflict mineral rule directly in its role as a distributor of products and not as a manufacturer, and amigodata is developing and implementing processes to address any potential role in the supply chain.

As a distributor and not a manufacturer, amigodata will not generally be subject to the requirements of the conflict minerals rule. However, amigodata supports its suppliers in their efforts to track conflict minerals in the supply chain and to educate customers about this issue. As this rule develops and more manufacturers are able to report on their supply chain, amigodata plans to make this information available to our customers. The conflict minerals rule mandates certain companies to report annually to the SEC a description of measures taken to exercise due diligence on the source and Chain of Custody of conflict minerals of tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold (3TG) in the manufacture of products. 

No current portion of amigodata’s business relates to manufacturing or contracting to manufacture within the purview of the conflict minerals rule. In order to meet any reporting for our own ethical reasons, amigodata Requires of our Suppliers if they are using conflict minerals, the Origin of any Such Conflict Minerals, and in what products they are used. Compliance with the conflict minerals rule is important to amigodata, and we intend to conduct due diligence within the standards set forth by the conflict minerals rule. To assist amigodata in moving toward a conflict-free supply chain, we have engaged our suppliers and collect the data to determine the smelters currently in their supply chain.
