DANI | COMPANY POLICIES AND COMPLIANCE
Company Policies and Compliance
In order to achieve business goals, it is essential to share information, ideas, strategies with everyone involved in the life of the company. In this space we make available the constitutive documents of DANI, with which we wish to inspire and guide the behaviour of the people working in our company and of all our stakeholders.

1) INTERNAL CHANNELS
The Company has made internal channels available that guarantee the confidentiality of the reporting person, of the person reported and/or in any way involved in the report, and the contents of the report. The management of the internal channels is assigned to a specifically appointed competent, autonomous and skilled subject (“Manager”).
a. IT PLATFORM
The reporting person may submit a report using the platform accessible via the link on the website https://whistledani.gruppodani...
The platform allows reports to be submitted either orally or in written form.
b. WRITTEN REPORT
The Reporting person can make a written report by registered mail with advice of receipt.
For this purpose, the report must be inserted in two sealed envelopes, the first containing data identifying the Reporting person and the second, the matter disclosed. Both envelopes must then be inserted in a third envelope addressed to:
Via Della Concia, 186
36071 – Arzignano (VI)
RESERVED for the Manager of the whistleblowing reporting channel.
This internal paper-based channel cannot be used to make an anonymous report.
c. DIRECT MEETING
The Reporting person may request a direct meeting, using one of the three methods described above. The Manager will reply to the Reporting person informing him/her where the direct meeting requested is to take place and the procedures to be followed.
Reports from which it is not possible to deduce the identity of the Reporting person are considered as anonymous.
Although the company accepts anonymous reports, it encourages whistleblowers to provide their names, so that investigations can be carried out swiftly and efficiently.
The Manager follows up anonymous reports however, when the matters reported have been described in adequate detail, that is, are capable of revealing facts and situations, described in specific contexts.
Anonymous reports are managed through the internal IT platform.
2) EXTERNAL CHANNEL
The external reporting channel is activated by "ANAC": the National Anti-Corruption Authority (ANAC) https://www.anticorruzione.it/.
The Reporting person may submit a report externally if, when his or her report is submitted:
a) the internal reporting Channel is not operative or does not comply with the Decree;
b) he or she has already submitted an internal report in compliance with the Decree, which has not been followed up;
c) he or she has well-founded grounds to believe that submitting an internal report would not be effectively followed up, or that the report submitted could expose the Reporting person to a risk of retaliation;
d) he or she has well-founded grounds to believe that the breach may constitute an imminent or obvious danger to the public interest.
