The Integrity Message Service enables a dialogue between the reporting person and the company officer in charge of handling the incoming message. If desired, the reporting person remains anonymous. This reporting system can be operated in any language and is worldwide accessible 24/7/365 and free of charge for the reporting person.
Integrity Line attorneys are personally available by email or phone as first point of contact for reports on wrongdoing and misconduct. They carry out first investigations and serve as mediation authority between the reporting person and the company. Reports are handled confidentially and are subject to the attorney-client privilege.

Several IT audit departments of Integrity Line customers as well as auditing companies have checked the Integrity Line Systems with penetration tests. The system has passed these tests successfully. The high data encryption guarantees a state-of-the-art security standard.
The Integrity Platform is programmed according to the highest possible standard in the area of encryption technology. In order to ensure the confidentiality of the reports all sensitive information is encrypted. This makes unauthorized inspection through third and the server administrator impossible.
The encryption criteria follow a strict "need-to-know" principle. Users without permission on a case are not granted cryptographic access to this case. Therefore, among other features, this guarantees the confidentiality of the saved reports at any time.
