Whistleblowing System

Whistleblowing System

We have established and announced an independent whistleblowing email and hotline on our website, allowing anyone to report criminal activities, fraud, or violations of the law. Whether the report is internal or external, personnel handling whistleblowing matters at our company are required to keep the identity of the whistleblower and the content of the report confidential. We are committed to protecting whistleblowers from any adverse consequences resulting from their reporting

Scope of the Reporting Cases

Anyone who discovers behaviors that violate our company’s financial systems and affect the accuracy of financial reports, violate laws and regulations, breach our policies, systems, and ethical standards, misappropriate company property or assets, receive improper benefits externally, engage in fraudulent activities by the Company’s management or employees, or engage in any other behaviors that harm the interests of the company, may file a report according to our “Implementation Measures for the Whistleblowing System”.

On November 4th, 2022, we announced our latest information regarding the reporting methods and channels as follows:

  • Reporting methods: Written or via email.

Handling of the Reporting Cases

In accordance with the “Implementation Measures for the Whistleblowing System”, we designate the Audit Committee as the recipient of whistleblowing reports, and the Corporate Auditor’s Office as the investigating unit responsible for handling the registration and recording of cases, as well as investigating and addressing whistleblowing reports in accordance with relevant procedures. We issue written reports on the investigation results along with handling recommendations and carry out standard operating procedures in accordance with the subsequent handling mechanism. In 2023, our company did not receive any whistleblowing reports.

Protections for Whistleblower's Identity and Report Content

Our personnel handling the reporting cases shall provide a written statement ensuring the confidentiality of the identity of the whistleblower and the content of the report. They are prohibited from disclosing any information that could identify the individuals involved, including but not limited to the names, ages, addresses, documents, drawings, messages, appearances, identity details, or any other items sufficient to recognize the whistleblower and the subject of the report. Exceptions apply only if the whistleblower consents to or voluntarily discloses his or her identity, or if disclosure is required by law. In cases where the whistleblower faces threats, intimidation or other adverse actions, our company will assist them in reporting the matter to law enforcement authorities.

Protection of Whistleblower's Rights

No adverse personnel measures shall be imposed as an attempted retaliation against internal personnel for whistleblowing, cooperating with a whistleblowing investigation, or refusing to participate in the reported case. Should any such personnel measures occur, affected personnel may seek relief in accordance with the relevant provisions of our “Implementation Measures for the Whistleblowing System”.


Rewards for the Whistleblower

If a reporting case is verified to be true, internal whistleblowers will be appropriately rewarded based on their contribution to corporate governance, in accordance with the relevant provisions of our company’s guidelines for reward and punishment implementation .
