Task of the legal ombudsman

First Sensor AG and its subsidiaries are strongly opposed to all forms of corruption, fraud, other forms of economic crime and any other kind of legal infringement. The appointment of an external legal ombudsman is an integral part of the compliance management system with which First Sensor strives to prevent, detect and sanction legal violations in the company context.

Lawyer Dr. Rainer Frank has been appointed as a legal ombudsman for employees and business partners of First Sensor, who want to disclose information about corruption, economic crimes or other serious legal violations anonymously. Serious violations of First Sensor´s code of conduct may also be disclosed to the legal ombudsman.

The task of the legal ombudsman is limited to accepting tip-offs on corruption, offenses and other law infringements of serious consequence. The ombudsman is not a complaints office for employees or business partners.



For anyone who would like to speak with Dr. Frank  in his capacity as First Sensor’s legal ombudsman, a telephone number is provided. Outside the business hours of the law office, an answering machine will record messages. Dr. Frank will return your call as soon as possible. The legal ombudsman can also be contacted by e-mail in German and English.

Information will only ever be passed on to the company if it is expressly permitted by the whistleblower to the legal ombudsman. If requested, the informant will remain anonymous.

For whistleblowers, contact with the legal ombudsman is without risk. He will not forward any information to the company without the whistleblower’s permission. Disclosure of information will be done anonymously if the whistleblower wants this.

The legal ombudsman’s client is First Sensor AG. He may never grant legal advice to a whistleblower which is contrary to the interests of the companies of the First Sensor Group. He may, however, explain the details of internal procedures when dealing with whistleblowing.
