Such communications may be confidential or anonymous, and may be submitted in writing to the Chairman of the Audit Committee. All such communications will be handled with sensitivity, discretion and confidentiality to the extent allowed by the circumstances and the law. They will be reviewed and addressed by The Ark’s Audit Committee with assistance from other Ark functions and others, as needed.

The status of all outstanding communications addressed to the Board, any director, or the Audit Committee will be reported to the Board and the Audit Committee on a periodic basis.
