from us once a year, free of charge, information about the personal information (if
any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding
calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories
of personal information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third
parties with which we shared such information in the immediately preceding calendar
year. At this time, Military Optical does not disclose your personal information to
any third parties for their direct marketing purposes, only to assist Military
Optical in its own marketing efforts, so this requirement does not apply to us.

not respond to any such “do not track” signals, as no one do not track

collect personal information about their users’ online activities over time and

California Transparency in
Supply Chains Act
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 requires that applicable
manufacturers and retailers such as National Vision, Inc. (“NVI”)
disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from the supply
NVI is committed to conducting business in accordance with ethical, legal and
socially responsible rules and principles. These standards and commitments are
outlined in the Company’s Code of Conduct (the “Code”) which every
NVI Associate is trained on upon hire and is distributed annually during the course
of their employment. Consistent with the Code, we respect the personal dignity of
every individual and comply with all applicable human rights laws. Failure to comply
with the standards of the Code subjects violators, regardless of position, to
disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
With respect to our supply chain partners, we expect the same commitment to high
ethical standards and compliance with applicable laws, as detailed in the Code. NVI
monitors the standards of our supply chain partners for quality, safety and
employment standards by conducting annual scheduled on-site audits of our major
vendors and laboratory manufacturers. When entering into written contracts with
suppliers, NVI requires suppliers to comply with all applicable laws which include
those that prohibit slavery and human trafficking. Failure to comply with all
applicable laws subjects supplier to breach and possible termination of contract.
At this time NVI does not engage independent auditors or require separate
verifications/certifications from its suppliers relating to human trafficking and
slavery. While NVI believes it conducts its business with suppliers that maintain
high ethical standards, we are continuously evaluating additional programs as it
relates to combating the tragedy of human trafficking and slavery.
