** Speak Up Line allows for anonymous reporting subject to local whistleblowing rules and regulations. Please be informed that local law might require revealing the identity of persons involved in the reporting of an incident. In particular, it might be required to reveal the identity of the reporting party if the report was not made anonymously. Such a duty to disclose information relating to the whistleblower may particularly follow from a statutory duty to inform the data subject under Art. 14 of the EU GDPR, or other applicable data protection laws.
