CODE OF ETHICS
At HEL MORT®, I, HEL MORT as the main artist and sole proprietor of the Hel Mort Arts Limited, am deeply committed to upholding the highest ethical standards throughout all aspects of my artistic practice. The unwavering dedication to integrity serves as the cornerstone of my work, underscoring its moral significance and vital role in fostering trust and achieving sustainable success. Guided by a robust Code of Ethics, I ensure unwavering professionalism in my interactions with customers, shareholders, and business partners. Compliance with pertinent laws and regulations, combined with my unwavering allegiance to core principles, forms the bedrock of a culture steeped in integrity. As a responsible artist and studio, I actively engage in and responsibly contribute to society. Environmental preservation and minimizing my ecological footprint are paramount, given the profound impact of artistic endeavors on the world. My unwavering commitment to ethical practices is especially salient as I embrace a role as a purveyor in the art sector. The Code of Ethics that governs my practice places paramount importance on upholding human rights, not only for my own benefit but also for those within my supply chains whose contributions shape my creative output. I resolutely oppose child labor, forced labor, human trafficking, and the exploitation of vulnerable populations, including migrants, underpinning my commitment to social justice. Furthermore, I staunchly oppose all forms of violence and discrimination, with a particular focus on safeguarding the rights of women and the LGBT community. To ensure steadfast adherence to my values and compliance with applicable regulations, I have implemented comprehensive policies and procedures. My zero-tolerance policy unequivocally rejects corruption, influence peddling, and any form of deceptive conduct. It is incumbent upon me to instill a deep understanding of these elevated standards within every facet of my organization. Furthermore, I extend my ethical whistleblowing system to encompass service providers and external partners, providing them with a platform to report any violations or suspected breaches of my Code and its underlying principles. Safeguarding the interests of individuals who report such matters in good faith is an inherent obligation shared by all stakeholders within my artistic practice. By operating with unwavering integrity and a sense of social responsibility, I strive to foster trust with my stakeholders and drive positive change in the world. Continuous improvement and upholding the highest ethical standards form the foundation of my artistic endeavors.
Additionally, it is crucial to underscore that any artwork, creation, video, or production originating from HEL MORT® that may potentially cause offense due to political, religious, ethnic, or other reasons should be viewed as an artistic expression rather than a direct attack on any individual. I firmly assert my rights as an artist and the protections afforded to me by international and European law. In accordance with international legal frameworks, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, I advocate for freedom of expression as a fundamental human right. These international agreements safeguard the rights of artists to imagine, create, and distribute diverse cultural expressions without censorship or undue interference. They protect artists from political pressure and ensure that their work can be enjoyed and appreciated without limitations imposed by non-state actors.
