Supplier means a company, partnership or individual that provides goods or services to Stats Perform or its affiliates.

Worker means any individual whom the Supplier employs, hires or engages, or otherwise uses to conduct its business.

Representative means the Supplier’s suppliers, vendors, agents, and subcontractors who are involved in Stats Perform’s supply chain.


By providing products or services to Stats Perform or its affiliates, the Supplier certifies that it and its Workers are complying and shall continue to comply with the requirements in this Code.
