The Giesecke+Devrient whistleblowing system

Our actions with respect to colleagues, business partners, shareholders and the public are characterised by integrity and responsibility. G+D and Veridos do not tolerate breaches of current legislation, internal regulations or the code of conduct.

This whistleblowing system provides an option for reporting concrete information about violations relevant to compliance. Your information helps us to counteract violations at an early stage and to reduce damage to our company, our employees and our business partners.

This option to submit information is available to all employees as well as third parties (customers, suppliers etc.).

The system is intended for the submission of information about crimes and severe violations in the following categories:

  • Corruption
  • Fraud/breach of trust/embezzlement
  • Violations of data privacy legislation
  • Antitrust/unfair competition
  • Violations of security or IT security regulations
  • Taxes and customs
  • Violations of Environment/Health/Safety (E/H/S) - regulations
  • Other severe violations

It is your decision which business sector oft the G+D Group receives your report: G+D GmbH, G+D Currency Technology, G+D Mobile Security or Veridos GmbH.

The system is provided and administered by the independent company Business Keeper AG. Data is stored exclusively in Germany on specially protected servers operated by Business Keeper AG. The examination of the content is performed exclusively by G+D or Veridos respectively.

The information you provide will be handled in strict confidentiality and shared with the parties responsible for further examination of the report. We would like to encourage you to supply your name.

The information you report can lead to the initiation of internal investigations as well as investigations by public authorities and other consequences. For this reason, only share information that is true to the best of your knowledge. If you consciously provide false or misleading information, you must expect consequences. Consciously disseminating false information is a criminal violation in many countries. Reports made according to your best knowledge will not result in any negative consequences by the company.

Please note: The whistleblowing system is not an emergency service, nor a complaints office about unfair treatment. G+D and Veridos explicitly refuse to accept reports about trivial matters and deliberate false accusations.

Information about submission via telephone:
  • Why should I submit a report?

    Compliance with statutory, social and company-internal rules is part of a positive and open company culture.

    Perhaps you are aware of damaging behaviour or risks which endanger the company. Your report will help to expose financial losses and image damage in a timely manner, and you will ensure the sustainable success of the company and the continued availability of jobs!

  • What types of reports will help your organisation?

    Reports about violations of legal and organisation-internal regulations will be recorded and forwarded.

    You will receive detailed information on the possible categories of a report during the reporting process.

  • What is the process for submitting a report? How do I set up a postbox?

    To submit an anonymous or personalised report, start by clicking the ”Submit report“ button located on the top left side of our introduction page.

    There are 4 steps to the report process:

    1. First, you will be asked to read some information on the protection of your anonymity and to respond to a security query.
    2. On the following page, you will be asked about the category of your report.
    3. On the report page, you can elaborate on your report in your own words and answer questions about the incident by simply selecting responses. You can type up to 4,096 characters into the free text field, which corresponds to a full A4 page. You may also submit a file of up to 10 MB to support your report. Please do bear in mind that documents can contain information about the author. Following the sending of your report, you will receive a reference number as confirmation that you have forwarded this report.
    4. Please subsequently set up your own secured postbox. You will receive feedback from us via this postbox, including answers to questions and information about the progress of your report.

    If you already have a secured postbox, you can access it directly via the “Login” button. First, you will have to answer a security query.

    As long as you do not enter any data from which conclusions about your person can be drawn, the technology of the BKMS® System will protect your anonymity.

    Please rest assured that we are interested only in the incident you are reporting. Malpractices should be revealed and financial losses prevented.

  • How do I receive feedback and remain anonymous at the same time?

    The overriding principle of the BKMS® procedure in use is the protection of the whistleblower. The system’s anonymity protection function is certified by an independent body.

    When setting up your secured postbox, please select your own pseudonym/user name and password. Your report is kept anonymous through encryption and other special security routines. You will never be asked for personal information at any time during the reporting process. Do not submit any information that can be traced back to you. Please do not use a computer that has been provided by your employer to submit your report.

    Via the secured postbox, an examiner will provide you with feedback on what is happening with your information or pose questions if details still need to be clarified - you will also remain anonymous during the dialogue. We are interested in reports to avoid damages, not in you as a whistleblower.
