Modern Slavery Statement

For financial Year 2019

This statement is made on behalf of Protocol Internet Technology Limited t/a Hosting Ireland pursuant to section 54(1) of the (UK) Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the "Act") and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement.

Hosting Ireland is registered in Ireland, is part of the Register group and has offices in Waterford. We have approximately 11 people in our office. We are an Internet Service Provider for the private sector.

Our Approach

Although the likelihood of an incidence of modern slavery in our business or our supply chains is low, we work to the highest ethical and professional standards and value transparency and accountability in all our dealings. We have a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking and expect the same high standards from those we work with.

We have put in place a Modern Slavery Policy which is supported by other internal policies and HR processes such as our Whistleblowing Policy and Disciplinary Rules and Procedure.


The Directors are ultimately responsible for compliance internally and in our supplier relationships.

Supplier Due Diligence

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.

In 2019 we are expanding our Compliance programme to include due diligence checks on all existing suppliers and adding steps to our supplier on-boarding procedure(s). These checks will include identifying those in our supply chain that adhere to the (UK) Modern Slavery Act 2015 by providing its customers with a statement of compliance.

Any supplier that falls short of the requirements of the (UK) Modern Slavery Act 2015 will be reviewed on a per case basis. Where compliance to the Act cannot be verified through our due diligence checks, and the supplier has advised a statement will not be made available, a new supplier(s) will be identified.
