When following the standard reporting procedure, you must state who you are. However, your identity will only be divulged to persons who are essential for the proper processing of the case.
But if you wish, you can tell us about critical matters anonymously. For this, we have a separate report form that encrypts data and ensures that the report cannot be traced back to the sender.
However, it is important to be aware that following up your report and looking into serious matters may be more difficult if you wish to remain anonymous. This is because UiS has limited ability to investigate the case in more detail by asking you questions.
Furthermore, according to the law, staff accused of harassment have the right of contradiction. This means that they have the right to know what kind of information the accusation is based on. You should also be aware that in certain cases and based on the situation it may become obvious who has made the report.
A good alternative to anonymity is to report in the standard way, but ask that your name be kept confidential as long as possible.
