Notification in accordance with the Whistleblower Protection Act

The Whistleblower Protection Act (“HinSchG”) was introduced to provide appropriate protection to people who report grievances in the workplace or in companies. As a whistleblower, you play a crucial role in uncovering misconduct and help to promote a transparent and ethical corporate culture.

We take the protection of whistleblowers seriously. Our company ensures that all reports are treated confidentially. We protect whistleblowers from possible reprisals and promote open communication that helps to safeguard our corporate values.

There are several equivalent ways of reporting:

04347 Leipzig, Germany

Please note that if you decide to contact us under your own name (non-anonymously), any tip-offs or information will also be treated as strictly confidential. Access to this email inbox is restricted to only a few people. Follow-up measures are initiated exclusively by the Compliance department. 

If you provide information under own name, you are protected by law against reprisals, so please provide information that is as comprehensive and exhaustive as possible.

You will also receive updates on the progress and conclusion of the procedure if you choose to report under your own name.
