Slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, and human trafficking (collectively, “Slavery”) all have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. Slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. Corel Corporation and its affiliates (collectively, “Corel”) are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in our business dealings to ensure Slavery is not taking place in our business.
