Company Whistleblower system
Reporting suspected compliance violations
freenet is committed to upholding the law. As a result, we expect our employees and business partners to behave in a legally compliant manner and comply with internal guidelines at all times.
You have the opportunity to report any legal violations or non-compliance with our guidelines by freenet employees or business partners either anonymously or by disclosing your identity. These violations may include fraud, bribery, workplace bullying or privacy breaches and in particular risks to human rights or environmental legislation under the German Supply Chain Act (Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz).
As a whistleblower, please bear in mind the following:
We expect the whistleblower system to be used responsibly. freenet will not tolerate any inappropriate use of the whistleblower system aimed at slandering colleagues or business partners.
The Rules of Procedure for handling reports of potential compliance violations can be found here.
Once again, please bear in mind that anonymous reports often make it much more difficult to investigate potential violations, as we are unable to follow up with any questions. Please provide us with your contact details if you are available to respond to inquiries. We will protect your identity.
