You decide on the path you use to provide information and can communicate with the ombudspersons without having to disclose your identity.
You can choose either direct contact with a legal ombudsperson or you can make your report to the ombudspersons in a specially-protected digital space via untraceable electronic paths.
Your reports will be received solely and personally by the confidential lawyers Dr Caroline Jacob or Dr Rainer Buchert and will be handled with absolute confidentiality. The facts will be forwarded to the Compliance, Anti-money-laundering and Anti-fraud Department only if you consent expressly to this. Your identity remains confidential unless you wish it to be disclosed.
The system is not a complaints body nor a suggestions box. In case of doubt, we will be happy to advise you. Whistleblowers bear no costs.
