      Contact an Ombudsperson

      Additionally to our offer “Compliance & Anti-Corruption Hotline” we now also offer an ombudsperson service. This service gives the opportunity to talk to a person who may answer general question. Our ombudsperson service is, however, not destined to offer individual legal advice.

      Contacting an ombudsperson is always on a confidential basis. The ombudsperson will not disclose your identity to us as a company unless you agree to this.

      Contact person for informants

      Within our ombudsperson service you may contact ombudsman Dr. Rainer Buchert or ombudswoman Dr. Caroline Jacob at your discretion. Both, Dr. Buchert and Dr. Jacob have a long standing experience of providing an ombudsperson service on behalf of corporations.

      Please find here their Website (available in 18 languages):

      You will find here as well a contact form, which can be used for confidential reports.

      Cookie Policy

      We use cookies to provide you with the best experience on our website. Click on "Accept all" to allow all cookies or "Change cookie settings" to decide individually.

      Note: If you consent to the use of performance cookies, you also consent to the transfer of your personal data to insecure third countries (e.g. to the USA). These insecure third countries do not provide a level of data protection comparable to EU standards. In the case of certain third party providers, such as Google and Mouseflow, no other guarantees are offered to compensate for this deficit. There is therefore a risk that the transmission of your personal data may result in state authorities accessing your personal data without you having effective legal protection options.

      For more information on performance technologies and the transfer of data to third countries, please refer to the privacy policy.

      By clicking the "Accept all" button, you explicitly consent to this. Consent can be revoked at any time by changing the cookie settings. The further processing of data already collected before revocation by the third-party provider cannot be excluded.
