In compliance with the legislative provisions on whistleblowing, Rainbow Group has established a secure channel, activated by the websites traceable to it, through which it is possible to report violations, including reasonable suspicions, of national and European Union regulations affecting the Company.
To this end, the Internal Reporting Channel has been identified in the Whistleblowing Platform and the Reporting Manager has been identified in Rainbow S.p.A.’s Board of Vigilance.
Rainbow therefore encourages anyone becoming aware of violations (conduct, acts, or omissions) of the law or internal company protocols that are, even potentially, detrimental to the public interest or the integrity of the Group, to make a report through the Whistleblowing Platform.
The Whistleblowing Platform is an IT tool designed, also via an encryption system, to guarantee that the identity of the whistleblower, the person involved and the person in any case mentioned in the report, as well as the content of the report and the related documentation, are kept confidential, enabling the competent office to communicate with the whistleblower by providing him or her with an acknowledgement of receipt of the report and feedback on the action taken or intended to be taken on it. Reports can be made through the Whistleblowing Platform either in written or oral form. For the latter, the reporting person may alternatively attach an audio file or request a direct meeting scheduled with the relevant office.
To make a report, please access the Whistleblowing page where further and more in-depth information is available on how to make a report and its handling.
