The Ethics Channel or whistleblowing channel is constituted as the channel that allows employees, suppliers, customers and other persons or entities related to the organization, or company in question, to report incidents and irregularities in relation to non-compliance with both internal (code of ethics) and external regulations in order to:

Comply with Law 10/2010 on the Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (art. 26 bis).

Comply with one of the minimum requirements established by the Criminal Code, for the exemption of criminal liability of the legal entity.

To have a single channel for the exercise of rights and complaints regarding Data Protection.

The access to the Channel will be made from the e-mail:

To guarantee the confidentiality of the communication, not transferring to the client the personal data of the communicating party in the case of communications that are not anonymous.

At this point, it is important to note that the State Attorney General’s Office in Circular 1/ 2016 considers the External Ethical Channel more efficient than the one managed by the client itself, since it entails less rejection by employees, lower levels of «employee silence», lower risk of data leakage and higher levels of confidentiality.

Therefore, having an ethical channel will help us to promote regulatory compliance and the organization’s code of ethics. It will also create a climate of trust that will allow better management of good governance and transparency in the company.
