    Management platform

    The Report can be made, anonymously or non-anonymously, through the Whistleblowing Platform (“Platform”), which can be accessed from

    The insertion of the Report via the Platform is carried out by completing a questionnaire which requires the detailing of some elements.

    At the end of the process, the Platform issues the Report’s identification code to the Reporter: this is a unique 16-digit code that the Reporter must keep to subsequently access the Platform, check the status of the Report, receive feedback in this regard or make specific additions.

    In the ‘Management Procedure’ section, the Company makes clear information available to all potential reporters with references to the Platform itself and the use procedures (see paragraphs 5.1.1 and 5.1.2 of the document attached in the section), including the prerequisites to carry out the Reports (see paragraph 4.4) and the internal management method (see paragraph 5.4).

    Oral reporting

    If the Whistleblower requests it, a direct meeting may be set up with the Persons In Charge of managing the Reports (Whistleblowing Team). In this case, the Report, with the prior consent of the Reporter, will be documented by recording on a device suitable for storage and listening. If the Reporter does not give his consent to this method, a minute of the meeting will be drawn up, which the Reporter will be able to verify, rectify and confirm by signing.

    For both methods, the data and documentation collected during the direct meetings are kept for the time necessary to manage the Report, and in any case no later than five years from the date of communication of the final report of the process (see paragraph 5.4.3 of the Procedure). After this deadline, the Reports and the related documentation are deleted and/or destroyed from all media and archives.

  • As part of the reporting management process, personal data are processed in compliance with current legislation (EU Regulation 679/2016 and Legislative Decree 196/2003, as amended by Legislative Decree 101/2018).
