When reporting any suspicious activity as described above, please provide as much detail as possible (f.e. full name and function of the people involved, witnesses, description of facts, date and location, etc).
After sending your concern to “firstname.lastname@example.org”, you will be sent a confirmation of receipt within seven days. Based on the provided information, the whistleblowing concern will be investigated.
