The system for employees who have notes is exclusively for the receipt and processing of reports on actual or alleged violations of laws, directives or the Code of Conduct as well as other company-internal guidelines. In particular, it is not available for general complaints or for product and warranty inquiries. It is only intended to provide evidence in which the the person who has notes has a good faith belief that the facts s/he has provided are accurate. She/He is not in good faith when he is aware that a reported fact is untrue. In case of doubts, corresponding facts should not be presented as a fact, but as a presumption, rating or statement of other persons. It should be noted that a person who has notes may be liable to prosecution if, contrary to better knowledge, he claims untrue facts about other persons.
All notes, including references to the whistle-blower, are processed confidentially and in accordance with applicable laws.
All statements, regardless of their veracity, are likely to damage the reputation of those affected, the the persons who have notes and / or third parties and the company to the maximum extent. Therefore, they are treated as particularly confidential by us beyond the obligations arising from data protection laws.
