The corporate governance documents provided here highlight the importance we place on compliance and our standards of business conduct.
Ethics and Standards of Behavior
Our Code of Conduct guides our officers, directors and employees in maintaining the highest standards of ethical conduct. All of our employees are required to carry out their duties in accordance with the policies set forth in the Code of Conduct and with applicable laws and regulations.
Shareholder Communications with Board of Directors
Interested shareholders can send communications to our Board of Directors, a committee of our Board of Directors and individual directors by writing to them care of: Corporate Secretary, Ampliphi Biosciences Corp, 3579 Valley Centre Drive, San Diego, CA 92130. The outside of the envelope should prominently indicate for whom the correspondence is intended. The Corporate Secretary will forward such communication to our Board of Directors, the appropriate committee of our Board of Directors or individual directors, as the case may be, unless the communication is unduly hostile, threatening, illegal or similarly inappropriate, in which case the Corporate Secretary has the authority to discard the communication or take appropriate legal action regarding the communication.
Reporting Questionable Conduct
Our Audit Committee has established procedures for the receipt, retention and treatment of complaints or concerns by employees or individuals outside of the Company, regarding accounting, internal accounting controls or auditing matters and other violations of our Code of Conduct. A person with such a complaint or concern should promptly report the complaint or concern by writing to the attention of AmpliPhi Biosciences Corp. or to the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors at AmpliPhi Biosciences Corp., 3579 Valley Centre Drive, San Diego, CA 92130. You may report your complaint or concern anonymously and confidentially. The Company will maintain the confidentiality of persons making complaints or expressing concerns to the fullest extent reasonably practicable within the legitimate needs of law and any ensuing evaluation or investigation. To assist the Company in reviewing and, if necessary, investigating your complaints or concerns, you should provide as much factual, rather than speculative, information as possible. The Company has adopted a Whistleblower Policy contained in our Code of Conduct and applicable to its employees that provides for protection from retaliation or discrimination by the Company due to such complaints in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
