LightInTheBox Supply Chain Transparency Statement June 1, 2022 The California Transparency in Supply Chain Act of 2010 took effect on January 1, 2012. Since then, manufacturers and retailers that met the threshold of the requirement shall empower their consumers to access the information on their endeavors or measures exerted on fighting against human trafficking or modern slavery in the course of their supply chains. You may visit our US site to find the required statement provided by Light in the Box Limited at the link https://www.lightinthebox.com/, US site, on the webpage as well as on the mobile application. We, LightInTheBox attach great importance to transparency in the supply chain.

Verification In order to ensure compliance with the California Transparency in Supply Chain Act of 2010, we set forth certain policies that guarantee our verification process. The candidate vendors must fulfill some due diligence before our official vendors, such as qualification review, background check, binding agreement, and other measures. For more information, you may see our Supply Chain Code of Conduct (namely “Code of Code Conduct. Technically, we demand our suppliers and manufacturers to follow the applicable rules in the fields of labor working and environmental protection, including but not limited to i) the international convention, such as the International Labor Organization’s Convention on Forced Labor, ii) the national law regarding slave labor, child labor, prison labor, minimum wage payment, and overtime-work compensation. We utilize the back-to-back clause in our agreement with the suppliers to monitor their behaviors under the modern slavery laws. As long as it occurs to the suppliers that they breach the agreement or Code of Conduct or fail to report to us on a timely basis, we will immediately terminate our cooperation and pursue their legal responsibility. Due Diligence For sake of prudence, we will conduct due diligence internally. The due diligence work involves interviews or communication with the suppliers to know about the environment of their labor. Also, during our routine business, we remind our suppliers of maintaining the records in case of risk assessment or regulatory compliance needed. Certification Third-party certification is not required but preferred. We do not require every supplier to suffice the certification. Alternatively, we investigate our suppliers at random in respect of the age of the workers, their health and work situation, and their payroll by means of the questionnaire distributed to our suppliers. On the cornerstone of the questionnaire, we will score our vendors to facilitate risk assessments. Internal Accountability We allocate the responsibility to every employee in the Business Department of LightInTheBox. The employees are required to visit the factory on-site for a background investigation. Also, our current policy with regard to the supervision over the employees explicitly regulates the internal accountability they may be born. The most severe punishment for the employee is dismissal. The Surveillance Department is in charge of internal investigation and suppliers’ regular checks. Training The Surveillance Department organizes supply chain transparency training. The training is usually held online combined with a quiz twice annually. Moreover, the Business Department supervisors in charge of the supply chain also support the transparency measures landing. We believe associated education is fundamental to fully integrating labor compliance and social responsibility into all purchasing decisions and to building a responsible supply chain.
