In addition to the acts mentioned in the caput, all other conduct, action or omission, that may constitute a violation of Skyone's principles and values, current legislation, in particular the Anti-Corruption Law, Administrative Improbity Law, Tender Law and Law of Money Laundering, in addition to the Penal Code in force in the country and other Laws, Decrees and Regulations that may exist on the subject.
All contracts signed with Skyone must contain an anti-corruption clause, mentioning this Conduct Manual. Whenever possible, Skyone Employees and Third Parties must be made aware of the sanctions that may arise from non-compliance with the aforementioned Laws, with the provision of objective liability based on current legislation always being highlighted. In addition to the general principles already mentioned, all interactions between employees or Third Parties and Public Agents, on behalf or for the benefit of Skyone, must be guided by the following specific principles:
I. Probity: Acts aimed at circumventing or improperly influencing Public Agents to act or remain silent contrary to the public interest must not be practiced.
II. Accuracy in language: the language in all communications with Public Agents must be as precise and technical as possible, in order to avoid misinterpretations of the topics addressed. Terms or expressions should not be used that only the people who maintain that communication are able to understand them.
III. Registration of information: whenever possible, the information exchanged with Public Agents in meetings or other meetings (face-to-face, by videoconference or through telephone calls) must be formalized in writing in the minutes and subsequently stored. In addition, these minutes must include the names of the participants in the meetings or meetings, their position, the name of the institution or body to which they are linked, the date, time and the topics that have been discussed in these meetings. Strict liability does not require proof of intent or fault.
Thus, even if the intention was not to commit an act of corruption, if the action or omission in question falls within the following hypotheses, there may be liability based on current legislation:
I. Promising, offering or giving, directly or indirectly, an undue advantage to a Public Agent, or a third person related to him.
II. Proven to finance, fund, sponsor or in any way subsidize the practice of unlawful acts provided for in current legislation.
III. Proven to use an intermediary natural or legal person to hide or disguise their real interests or the identity of the beneficiaries of the acts performed.
IV. With regard to tenders and contracts:
a) frustrate or defraud, through adjustment, combination or any other expedient, the competitive nature of a public bidding procedure;
b) prevent, disturb or defraud the performance of any act of public bidding procedure;
c) remove or seek to remove a bidder, through fraud or offering advantage of any kind;
d) defraud a public bidding process or the resulting contract;
e) create, fraudulently or irregularly, a legal entity to participate in a public bidding process or enter into an administrative contract;
f) fraudulently obtain an undue advantage or benefit from modifications or extensions of contracts entered into with the public administration, without authorization by law, in the public bidding act or in the respective contractual instruments;
g) manipulate or defraud the economic-financial balance of contracts entered into with the public administration.
V. Hindering the investigation or inspection activity of bodies, entities or Public Agents, or intervening in their performance, including within the scope of regulatory agencies and inspection bodies of the national financial system.
Interaction with public agents increases the risk of behavior falling into the above-mentioned hypotheses. In this way, all persons covered by this Policy must be aware that none of their acts may generate liability based on current legislation.
For example, the employee who promises or offers some type of benefit, such as money, meals and trips to Public Agents (public banks, public authorities, members of the Legislative Branch, etc.), with the aim of enabling them to carry out official acts more quickly or more beneficial to Skyone will violate current legislation. There will be no need to deliver the promised or offered benefit, whether due to refusal or not by the Public Agent himself, for the infraction in question to be established.
The interaction of Skyone Employees and Third Parties, especially those who carry out government relations activities, with public agents or politicians must always be guided by the guidelines of this Manual and other Skyone policies. Interactions between Employees or Third Parties and public agents, in the performance of their activities that they provide to Skyone, must be recorded and reported to Skyone's Executive Board and Compliance Officer.
Any violations of this Conduct Manual by Skyone Employees and Third Parties must be reported to the Conduct Committee, through the People Management area or Reporting Channel (https://denuncias.umaempresaetica.com.br), which will carry out the first evaluation of the statement.
Collaborators and Third Parties who commit the violations mentioned in this Conduct Manual may be subject to:
In addition to the sanctions provided for in this Manual, in the event that the infractions mentioned in this Conduct Manual constitute a crime, Skyone will notify the
competent authorities and adopt the appropriate administrative or judicial measures.
The provisions of this Code shall be in force for a period of 2 (two) years, when they shall be revised.
