Whistleblowers report evidence

If someone becomes aware of unethical activities relating to your company, they can anonymously report hints to your company using the whistleblower form. Information about the incident as well as evidence such as images and files can be transmitted securely and anonymously. The whistleblower remains completely anonymous at all times - unless otherwise requested. Because secure anonymity for whistleblowers encourages them to report grievances.
