Whistleblowers will be informed about the processing of the case and any outcome via the secured and anonymous mailbox. However, how much or how little information can be provided depends on the specific case and may be limited for reasons of privacy or for efficient processing of the report, etc.
The identity of whistleblowers, if disclosed, as well as other information in a report, may be passed on to relevant public authorities without the whistleblower's consent. However, whistleblowers will be notified prior to such disclosure, unless it is deemed to jeopardize a related investigation or legal proceeding.
Data subjects can exercise their rights in accordance with Chapter III of the Data Protection Regulation, however with the limitations that follow from the legislation, including for example the interest of Team Rynkeby in effectively processing reports, including uncovering and solving criminal matters, cf. the Data Protection Regulation, article 14(5)(b) and the Data Protection Act § 22(1).
We draw particular attention to the fact that whistleblowers are not covered by the Whistleblower Act's protection against reprisals when reporting. Employees of Team Rynkeby Fonden who contribute to the whistleblower scheme by conducting investigations or providing information will, however, be ensured, as far as possible, equivalent protection against reprisals.
Externals who report in good faith are not protected from retaliation. However, we generally treat personal data confidentially, including information about identity if it is known.
If whistleblowers have provided information in bad faith, this may result in a police report, exclusion from the team/Team Rynkeby, as well as negative employment law consequences (for employees at Team Rynkeby Fonden) or contractual consequences for the collaboration (for external partners).
