Reporting centre for whistleblowers

In order to continue to improve and not simply accept misconduct, employees and business partners have the opportunity to use our whistleblower system, where offences can also be reported anonymously.

The data submitted will be treated confidentially.

We at Dautel GmbH are committed to protecting our whistleblowers from any kind of influence.

How our whistleblower system protects you

The contact persons do not receive any identifying information

Your report will be anonymised through adjustments. This means that all words are written in lower case and punctuation marks are adjusted.

Only defined persons have access to the whistleblower system

How you can protect yourself

You should not be in the company network (intranet/VPN)

Do not use words, phrases or abbreviations that you frequently use in conversations or emails.

Use a neutral device that has not been provided by your employer.

Categories/origin of the data

If you make a report via our whistleblower, the personal data you provide will be processed in order to process your report and, if necessary, take further action. In principle, you have the option of making anonymous reports. Which personal data is processed accordingly depends on the content of your report.

We may process your personal data in the event that you are an accused person or other person involved in the matter in order to check the report made via the whistleblower and investigate the suspected compliance and legal violations. Which data is processed depends on the specific report in each individual case and also on what information, for example, a whistleblower has provided about you. For example, the following data may be processed:

Contact details (e.g. private address, mobile and landline numbers, email address)

Master data (surname, first name, name affixes, date of birth)

Photos/video recordings

Time recording data

Special types of personal data: Health data
