Whistleblower Protection

Within our corporate group, internal whistleblower reporting points have been established. The setup of this whistleblower reporting point adheres to the guidelines of the Whistleblower Protection Act / Hinweisgeberschutzgesetzes (HinSchG). The fundamental objective of the law is to ensure that the applicable laws are complied with throughout our group of companies. In addition, whistleblowers are protected by the Whistleblower Protection Act against reprisals such as dismissal, salary changes or even transfer of duties. The whistleblower reporting point is operated by external trust attorneys: Attorney Claudia Vogel and Attorney Dr. Stefanie Heinrich, www.vogel-heinrich.eu. What you need to consider when submitting a report, how to make a report, and the procedure for processing a report by our trust attorneys can be found on the homepage, http://vogel-heinrich.eu/fuer-hinweisgeber. There, under vogel-heinrich.eu/unsere-vertragspartner, you can find the respective tiles of our corporate group. People providing information can generally choose whether they want to contact our internal reporting point or an external one.
