- You wish to see the status of your report, to check if action is being taken.
- You wish to provide additional information to your report.
- The system administrators (Compliance) have requested additional information from you to help them resolve the issue or take the appropriate action.
The anonymous web-based form is only intended to be used for hints that would otherwise bear the consequence of personal disadvantages pertaining to labor law or social threats.
Hints that have been reported incorrectly may be punished by criminal or labor law.
You will not be required to submit personal details at any step of the process. Please do not submit any information leading to conclusions regarding your identity. Please do not submit any reports from a technical device provided to you by the company.
In case of loss of your access data please submit a new report and install a new account. If possible, please refer to your previous report ID. Since this is a new account, the contents of your previous report are not available here.
hep Compliance will provide you with feedback by means of the whistleblowing channel on what is happening with your hint or ask questions if details are still unclear. – You will also remain anonymous throughout the conversation. We are interested in the reports themselves to prevent damages and not in your identity as a whistleblower.
