Any natural person who became aware of breaches of National or Union law in the context of his or her work-related activities (regardless being an employee of the Company) is, then, invited to report any information about such breaches to the Company using the internal reporting channel.  Please note that the expression “breach of National or Union law” stands for (i) any breaches of criminal law; (ii) any breaches of Company interest and (iii) any breaches affecting the public interests.
