Article 6 - The warning system
The warning system aims to reinforce the Groupe CIF's Ethics and Corporate Responsibility approach and to guarantee all employees and third parties in the Groupe CIF a right of expression in order to work together towards better risk prevention.
This system presupposes a strong sense of responsibility on the part of each individual; this system can only work if the information communicated has been communicated in "good faith", without any harmful intent.
The alert system allows Groupe CIF’s employees:
- To provide employees and any third parties with information and advice, in the event of misunderstanding, on the application or interpretation of the rules of the Code of Ethics;
- to report facts relating to a crime or misdemeanour, a serious and manifest violation of an international commitment regularly ratified or approved by Germany, a unilateral act of an international organisation taken on the basis of such a commitment, the law or regulations, or a serious threat or prejudice to the general interest of which they are personally aware, whatever the field.
The warning system guarantees confidentiality and respect for the rights of all persons in the handling of the proceedings. The Ethics Committee is responsible for this system.
The whistleblower must, first of all, inform the Ethics Committee through the means made available to it via the company's website.
Only if the committee receiving the alert fails to take action within a reasonable period of time may the whistleblower contact the judicial authority, the administrative authority or the professional orders. As a last resort, in the absence of processing by one of these authorities within three months, the alert may be made public.
Failure to comply strictly with this graduated procedure will result in the loss of whistleblower status and the protection attached to it.
Processing of the alert
The alert will be received by the members of the Ethics Committee who will examine the file. Upon receipt of the alert, the Ethics Committee will be responsible for acknowledging receipt and registering with the whistleblower within a reasonable time.
If one of the members can be directly implicated by the alert issued, they will de facto be excluded from the investigation procedure.
The alert shall be made by its author in an identified manner, insofar as the procedure applied by the Ethics Committee for the collection of alerts guarantees strict confidentiality of the identity of the author of the alert, of the persons concerned by the alert and of the information collected by the Committee.
The Committee shall be able to take any precautionary measures to warn of an immediate danger or to guarantee the security of evidence.
Any warning which is manifestly outside the scope of the procedure, or the serious nature of which is disregarded, which is based on the bad faith of its author or which constitutes an abusive or slanderous denunciation, shall be destroyed without delay. The Committee shall inform the author thereof and decide on the consequences of any warning issued in bad faith or with malicious intent.
If the facts reported fall within the scope of the alert procedure, the employee or third party concerned will be informed as soon as the invitation for an investigation is registered. The Ethics Committee shall ensure that the data collected are adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purposes for which they are collected.
The Ethics Committee or its members will then be able to check with the whistleblower his point of view on the reported facts.
Data relating to alerts shall be destroyed, kept or archived in accordance with the provisions in force.
Thus, as soon as they are collected by the Ethics Committee, data relating to an alert that falls outside the scope of the procedure will be destroyed. Otherwise, the Ethics Committee is entitled to keep the data for the duration of the procedure and the follow-up given to the result of the investigation, in particular any legal action against the person(s) reported.
Any person issuing an alert authorises the Work's Council to automatically process the alerts and to keep the data until the file and its follow-up are closed.
The Ethics Committee set up at group level can be reached by email at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
