Data Protection- European Commission

Data collected can eventually be transferred to a country outside of the European Union, but with adequate protection that has been recognised by the European Commission.

Persons accused in a whistleblower report have the right of access and rectification.

Abusive use of the whistleblower program may result in disciplinary and legal actions against the perpetrator, but on the other hand, use of the program performed in good faith, despite the fact that the information may be proven to be inaccurate or may not lead to any pursuit, will exempt its user from any disciplinary actions.
