How does the whistleblower application work?

The whistleblower system used is a web application through which messages and documents can be transmitted and stored in encrypted form. The application provides a whistleblower with the best anonymous technology currently available, such as Tor Onion Services and HTTPS with A+ certificates, without storing any personally identifiable information. For each submission, the application provides the whistleblower with a numeric code that allows them to check the status of the submission, exchange messages with our experts and provide additional information. This allows us to receive OpenPGP-encrypted notifications of new or updated reports from whistleblowers. 

How is the whistleblower's identity protected? 
The whistleblower's anonymity is only preserved by not revealing his identity. In the "digital realm", the identity of a whistleblower, even if he does not explicitly disclose it, can be revealed by verifying the "digital origin" of the communication using what is known as "IP", the unique identifier of the whistleblower's electronic device (a phone or a computer), is traced. Anonymity in the digital realm can therefore only be preserved by protecting the origin of the whistleblower's phone/computer, by shielding it with Tor and by preventing its automatic capture. 

About the
Whistleblower Protection Act (HinSchG)

The Whistleblower Protection Act (HinSchG) was implemented as an implementation of the EU Whistleblower Directive

(Directive (EU) 2019/1937) introduced in Germany. This EU directive, dated October 23, 2019, aims to protect people who report violations of EU law. The HinSchG serves to protect people who become aware of violations within their professional activity and who report them. It prohibits any form of reprisals against whistleblowers and obliges companies to set up secure reporting channels for grievances. The directive and national law thus emphasize the protection of whistleblowers and the importance of reporting misconduct in a professional context.

Companies with usually at least 250 employees had to implement the requirements of the HinSchG by July 2, 2023 at the latest. However, the fine provision, which provides for fines of up to 20,000 euros in the event of a lack of an internal reporting channel, will only come into force from December 1, 2023. In the meantime, no fines will be imposed for reporting channels that are not set up or not operated. This is intended to give companies time to take the necessary precautions and adapt to the new regulations. For companies with 50 to 249 employees, the HinSchG provides an extended set-up period until December 17, 2023.
