CleanInter.net, Inc. Whistleblower Policy
Updated: December 10, 2023
CleanInter.net, Inc. (“CleanInternet”) requires all its directors, officers, employees, and contractors to observe the highest standards of business and ethics while conducting their duties and responsibilities as outlined in our Ethics Code. As employees and representatives of CleanInternet, we must practice honesty and integrity in fulfilling all our responsibilities and complying with all applicable laws and regulations.
It is the responsibility of all directors, officers, contractors, and employees to report concerns about violations of CleanInternet’s Ethics Code or suspected violations of law or regulations that govern CleanInternet’s operations. This Whistleblower Policy is intended to encourage and enable employees and others to raise ethical and other serious concerns internally so that CleanInternet can address and correct inappropriate conduct and actions.
Acting in Good Faith
Anyone filing a complaint concerning a violation or suspected violation must be acting in good faith and have reasonable grounds for believing the information disclosed indicates a violation. Any allegations which have been made maliciously or while knowing such allegations to be false may be viewed as a serious disciplinary offense.
Reports of violations or suspected violations will be kept confidential to the extent possible, consistent with the need to conduct an adequate investigation.
Any person submitting a report may choose to do so on an anonymous basis. To submit an anonymous report, please send all details of the violation or suspected violation in a typed letter to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of CleanInter.net, Inc. at 1496 Pope Ct # 1, Chesterton, IN 46304.
- When submitting an anonymous report, please provide as much detail as possible. Information such as the individual(s) involved, what occurred, when the incident(s) took place, supporting documentation, etc. will help with the investigation of your allegations.
- Please Note: When submitting an anonymous report, if you do not provide contact information, we won’t be able to keep you informed on the progress and/or outcome of the investigation of your allegations.
CleanInternet has an open-door policy and suggests that employees share their questions, concerns, suggestions, or complaints with their supervisor. If you are not comfortable speaking with your supervisor or you are not satisfied with your supervisor’s response, you are encouraged to follow the chain of command or speak with another member of the Executive Team.
Supervisors and managers are required to report complaints or concerns about suspected ethical and legal violations in writing to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of CleanInter.net, Inc.. The CEO of CleanInter.net, Inc. is responsible for ensuring that all complaints about unethical or illegal conduct are investigated and resolved.
Individuals who do not feel comfortable reporting their concerns internally are encouraged to contact their state’s Attorney General’s office to report their concerns.
Handling of Reported Violations
CleanInternet will acknowledge receipt of the reported violation or suspected violation. All reports will be promptly investigated, and appropriate corrective action will be taken if warranted by the investigation.
It is contrary to the values of CleanInternet for anyone to retaliate against any director, officer, contractor, or employee who makes a good-faith report of an ethics violation, or a suspected violation of law.
Any whistleblower who believes he/she is being retaliated against must contact the CEO of CleanInter.net, Inc. immediately. The right of a whistleblower for protection against retaliation does not include immunity for any personal wrongdoing that is alleged and investigated. An employee who retaliates against someone who has reported a violation in good faith is subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
