You will receive confirmation of reception of your report within 5/6 days. All reports are entered directly on a secure server and strict data security policies are applied. All processing of personal data is carried out in terms of applicable national and international laws with the specific aim of protecting the rights and freedoms of persons.

3. Anonymous

If you choose to remain anonymous, neither Pandora nor the web service provider EthicsPoint will have any means of tracking or identifying you. No cookies, IP address or similar is stored.

We do however ask that you keep communication lines open by noting down the report key generated at the end of the report. This is done once you have completed your reporting.

The mail box allows you and the investigating officer to engage with the case, perhaps asking clarification questions which almost always results in a more successful outcome. Check your mail box after a week.
