Since 1986, QVC's customers have counted on us to provide quality products they're proud to own and tell their friends about. This commitment to quality is part of the valued relationship we have with our customers and it's one of the reasons why our QVC customers are among the most loyal in retail. Where a product comes from—where it's "sourced"—is an essential part of how we view quality. It's important to us that the products we sell come from vendors that share our values and our commitment to quality.
We support the humanitarian goals of the U.S. Conflict Minerals Rule, which seeks to address concerns that trade in certain minerals in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and surrounding countries may be used to finance armed groups engaged in human rights abuses. You can read our specific policy in support of the Rule and QVC's filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Together, we're working to create a more ethical global marketplace. That's just one of the ways we're "Together for Better."
