Privacy information SpeakUp for whistleblowers
We take the protection of your personal data seriously. We treat them confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations (GDPR).
Purposes of data processing
We process your personal data for the purpose of identifying and clarifying misconduct within the INDUS group of companies.
When you make a report, you are free to decide whether to do so under your name or anonymously.
Please note that we may have to disclose your name to the person you are accusing due to legal requirements. Please do not include sensitive personal information in your report, such as racial and ethnic
origin, health data, political opinions, religious beliefs, trade union membership, health data or data on sexual life.
We process your personal data to protect our legitimate interests to obtain information about misconduct with respect to INDUS through a secure system. You have the right to object to the processing of personal data about you.
We keep information about you confidential to the extent possible and permissible. Your data may be forwarded to the management of those companies in which defendants are employed for further investigation. We may also be required to tell the defendant who provided the information
about him or her.
Further recipients may be authorities and other bodies, insofar as this should be necessary for criminal prosecution or to protect legal interests.
In addition, service providers who provide or maintain our IT infrastructure may be able to view the data; however, they are separately obligated to maintain confidentiality.
The personal data will be stored for as long as they are required for the above-mentioned purposes or as long as legal retention periods require.

- Right to data portability, Art. 20 GDPR
