“We never call customers”
At the same time, PKN Orlen assured that its “direct communication” to potential investors is carried out only through official websites, such as: orlen.pl and orlenwportfelu.pl or through official profiles in social media – twitter.com/PKN_ORLEN, facebook.com/ORLENOfficial and youtube.com/PKNORLENSA_official.
