3) Confidentiality
The Company will make every effort to keep a whistleblower’s identity confidential. In case disclosing the whistleblower’s identity becomes necessary, the Company will inform the whistleblower in advance. However, there may be circumstances in which the Company may be required or legally obliged to reveal the whistleblower’s identity and the Company may not be able to give prior notice to the whistleblower, for example, where an investigation leads to legal proceedings.
4) Protection
Whistleblowers making genuine and appropriate reports are assured of fair treatment. It is the Company’s policy to protect the whistleblower from any form of intimidation, retaliation or victimization because of reporting a concern.
