3.1 Legality, honesty and fairness

Clouditalia is committed to basing its activity on both formal and substantial legitimacy of the norms in force besides acting in full compliance with such norms, the code of ethics, and internal regulations. It also ensures that its decisions are not driven by a personal interest or one that is in contrast with the duties of trust that are at the heart of the corporate role it covers.

3.2 Impartiality

Clouditalia is against all forms of discrimination, whether based on age, gender, race, language, personal or social conditions, religious and political belief. It carries out its activity respecting individuality, promoting the sense of belonging and enhancing professionalism, integrity and the sense of responsibility in accordance with the principles of freedom, human dignity and respect for diversities.

3.3 Transparency

Clouditalia ensures the absolute transparency of each action it undertakes, both internally or at corporate level, on the market; it is committed to providing complete, prompt and truthful information while guaranteeing the transparency of its decisions in a detailed and traceable way. Complete information is provided to all those who will sign agreements or contracts with the company (in any form) so as to communicate their expected behavior clearly.

3.4 Professionalism and Trust

All Clouditalia's co-workers are carefully selected and trained; the company enhances its staff professionalism by facilitating the transfer of knowledge and the sharing of goals and results while respecting personal traits.

Therefore, all co-workers are expected to act honestly, with commitment and respecting the ethics so as to protect both the image and the reputation of the Group at all times.

3.5 Conflicts of interest

In carrying out its activities, Clouditalia tends to avoid situations where the parties involved in the transactions are, or may only appear, in conflict of interest.

Employees and associates must therefore avoid any situation and refrain from any action that could counter a personal and/or family interest with those of the Company or that may interfere with or hinder their ability to take decisions, impartially and objectively, in the Company's interest.

All situations of conflict of interest, even potential or indirect ones, must be promptly reported to the Supervisory Board, which is appointed by the Company, in order to evaluate the existence of the conflict and its severity and to exclude or mitigate its consequences.

3.6 Confidentiality

Recipients shall ensure maximum discretion over any news and information relating either to corporate assets or to Clouditalia's activity, in compliance with the law, regulations in force, this Code and internal procedures.

The company is committed to protecting the information relating to Employees, Directors and Associates, either generated or acquired within the corporate structure and/or through business relationships, and to avoiding any misuse of such information.

4 Principles of conduct

4.1 Relationship with the staff

Clouditalia believes that human resources are a crucial factor for the company's development.

Values such as specialization, skills, promptness and attention to quality in the achievement of goals, are at the heart of the corporate "policy" for the management of the relationship with employees.

The skills evaluation systems adopted by Clouditalia aim at assessing the level of professionalism of its employees meant as an enrichment acquired through work experience, training courses and the results obtained.

Clouditalia enhances the knowledge, skills and the qualities of its employees. In particular:

  1. knowledge refers to the specific one required by the job, to general culture as well as to the organizational knowledge meant as a context of organizational systems and processes within which the company's activity is carried out;

  2. skills relate to professional abilities linked to the work activities;

  3. qualities refer to personal skills that are pivotal both to apply the knowledge possessed and to address one's skills; they are therefore connected to the approach to work adopted and to the performance (realization, determination, autonomy), to the management of organizational relations (being open, positive and reliable) and to a more subjective dimension of individual development and growth (adaptability to change, balance, creativity).

Clouditalia's employee assessment is designed to attest the level of professionalism achieved, always respecting personal characteristics, freedom and equal opportunities; assessment always implies the planning of a further resource development through professional improvement.

Clouditalia judges its employees' contribution according to the corporate goals achieved.

The performance assessment compares the goals set and the ones actually achieved as well as the actions and the tasks performed in a fixed period of time.

4.2 Relationship with collaborators and consultants

Clouditalia selects both its collaborators and its consultants impartially, autonomously and objectively.

All people involved with the company shall act loyally in order to respect both the obligations contracted with the job contract and the Code of Ethics, always ensuring the performance expected. All associates shall work diligently in order to protect corporate assets, by adopting responsible behavior in line with the operational procedures envisaged to regulate their proper use.

4.3 Relationship with authorities and public institutions

Relationship with "institutions", such as the Public Administration, organizations, public bodies, public officials or people in charge of public service and the like, at national, international or local level, as well as with other subjects representing collective interests, are delegated exclusively to people designated by Clouditalia to act on its behalf.

In particular, Clouditalia's agent, in compliance with the principles contained in the Code of Ethics, cannot, in their relations with the representatives of the Public Administration, whether Italian or foreign, directly or indirectly:

  • promise, give money, rewards or presents for purposes other than the institutional ones; gifts or rewards are allowed only when they are of modest value or when they do not compromise the integrity or reputation of either party and when they cannot be considered, by an impartial observer, as aimed at obtaining undue advantages;

  • offer job opportunities that might favor public Administration employees;

  • promise or grant benefits of any type, in order to influence independence of judgement or to obtain any advantage for the Company;

  • behave deceivingly so as to mislead the Public Administration into making a wrong technical-economic evaluation of the products and services offered/provided;

  • allocate contributions, grants, incentives, subsidies or public funds for purposes other than the intended ones.

4.4 Environment, safety and health

Clouditalia is committed to seeking the best results in terms of environmental protection and to complying with the regulations in force, taking all necessary measures for the protection of workplace safety and workers' health, including the prevention of occupational risks, information and training, as well as the provision of the necessary organization and means.

Technological research and innovation should be oriented to the realization and promotion of products and processes that are more environmentally friendly besides being characterized by an ever greater attention to the recipients' safety and health.

4.5 Relationship with both the clients and the suppliers

Relationship with the clients must be based on courtesy and on shared objectives, in the spirit of professionalism, responsibility and integrity. All those who work for or collaborate with Clouditalia must therefore maintain and develop existing relations according to the highest quality standards in order to satisfy the client's reasonable expectations.

The contracts, drawn up in accordance with the laws in force, are characterized by transparency, fairness, completeness and clarity; Clouditalia agrees not to resort to circumvention or unfair practices.

The selection of suppliers, as well as the formulation of the conditions of purchase of goods and services, are based on evaluation procedures inspired by the principles of legality, competition, objectivity, fairness, impartiality, fair price, quality of goods and/or services, by carefully assessing both the guarantees of assistance and the range of offers.

The stipulation of a contract with a supplier must always be based on extremely clear relationships, avoiding, wherever possible, the acceptance of contractual obligations that imply dependence on the contracting supplier.

Procurement processes must aim at obtaining the highest competitive advantage for Clouditalia; they must be fair and equitable to all suppliers who meet the requirements.

4.6 Relationship with the mass media

Due to the importance covered by information for the company's image, relationship with the mass media is based on the compliance with current legislation, internal regulations as well as with the principles of professional correctness. All communication with the mass media is delegated to the functions in charge. The news provided shall be prompt, complete, transparent, truthful and homogeneous.

4.7 Confidential information

Recipients who should be in possession of confidential information concerning the life and activities of the company (acquired while carrying out their task) shall not use it improperly or communicate it to third parties, without justification or Clouditalia's explicit approval.

Recipients are made aware of their confidentiality obligations, especially as far as "price sensitive" information is concerned in order to avoid misuse (in compliance with the national and international norms concerning insider trading) aimed at deriving financial advantages, or any other advantage, influenced or not by unlawful disclosure of information.

4.8 Sensitive data processing and privacy protection

Clouditalia protects personal and sensible data in compliance with the legislation in force. In order to do so, it adopts both technical and organizational solutions to ensure both the security and the confidentiality of the data processed.

Specific security measures are adopted in order to prevent either the loss or unlawful use of the data handled by Clouditalia.

Data protection, as well as the protection of all associated elements, is guaranteed in that the company protects:

  • confidentiality: it ensures that data are accessible only to authorizes staff;

  • integrity: it protects data completeness as well as that relating to their transmission;

  • availability: it ensures that authorized personnel can access data and the related information when necessary.

The lack of an adequate level of data security, in terms of confidentiality, availability and integrity, can result in the loss of competitive advantage, as well as in a loss of image, clients, turnover (which would imply a significant financial loss). In addition, the risk of incurring sanctions due to the violation of the norms in force must be taken into account.

Clouditalia knows and guarantees the importance of its internal IT system as a pivotal requirement for the protection of the information it handles, its reliability as well as the efficiency and the effectiveness of the services it provides. Therefore, its IT system security is obtained through a series of adequate safety measures, or procedures, technical measures or actions aimed at reducing the risks surrounding information assets.

4.9 Assessment and transparency of accounting activities and operations traceability

Clouditalia promotes and guarantees, in compliance with the norms in force as well as with accounting principles, internal regulations and procedures that its accounting records are based on precise, detailed and verifiable information and that they are inspired by the principles of information transparency, accuracy and completeness. To this end, all its associates are expected to act in a way that ensures the completeness of financial documents, risk prevention, reports timeliness, the protection of the activities' value as well as of losses.

Clouditalia expects its accounting-administrative system to be reliable; such system shall represent the management actions correctly in order to prevent and face at best financial and operational risks as well as possible frauds against the company.

The company's auditors must have free access to data, documents and necessary information in order to carry out their tasks.

In addition, all actions and operations performed must be adequately recorded; assessment of the decisions taken, authorization and process performed must be possible. Each operation performed requires an adequate document support in order to be able to assess the features as well as the reasons behind it and in order to identify the person who authorized, performed, recorded and assessed the operation itself.

4.10 Relationship with internal assessment bodies

Clouditalia is committed to spreading, at all corporate levels, a culture inspired by control, characterized by the awareness of both the existence of internal assessment procedures and their contribution to efficiency.

Internal assessment refers to all useful or necessary tools for directing, managing and assessing Clouditalia's activity aiming at ensuring the compliance with corporate laws and procedures, protecting corporate assets, managing activities effectively and providing accurate and complete accounting and financial data..

The Company expects all Recipients to behave in a way that upholds correctness and transparency especially in relation to the requests made by associates, the Statutory Auditors and other social bodies in the exercise of their institutional functions.

5 Violation of the Code of Ethics and sanction system

5.1 Violations and sanctions

Violation of the principles contained in the Code of Ethics will be punished by means of the sanctions envisaged by the Company's Disciplinary System and indicated also in the Organizational Model.

The respect of the Code of Ethics' norms is to be considered as a fundamental part of the contractual obligations of Clouditalia's employees, in accordance with art, 2104 of the Civil Code, as well as of the contractual obligations undertaken by non-subordinate associates and external consultants.

Therefore, all infringements committed by employees, suppliers and external collaborators, as well as by all other subjects having undertaken contractual obligations with the Company, will be interpreted as failure to comply with the main obligations deriving from the work relation or as a disciplinary offence, with all subsequent legal consequences, also in terms of the continuation of the relationship; it may also imply the compensation for damage caused.

Interested subjects can report all violations (in written form and non-anonymously) and/or suspected violations of the Code of Ethics to the Supervisory Board appointed by the Company; this will promptly evaluate the request by contacting the person responsible for the infringement if necessary.

The Supervisory Board shall protect all those who report infringements from retaliation, meant as an act that may be interpreted as discriminating or penalizing. In addition, the identity of the person reporting the violation shall not be disclosed, except when required by law.
