Confidentiality & Non-Retaliation

Microsoft will handle all inquiries discreetly and, to the extent possible and within the limits allowed by law, preserve the confidentiality of anyone reporting a possible violation or providing information in an investigation. We encourage you to identify yourself because it helps the review and investigative processes. You may also submit your report anonymously, where permitted by law. Whether you submit a report online or by phone, you may always check the status of your report or provide additional information. For online reports, use the unique password that you created in your original report, along with the reference number assigned to you for follow-up. For phone reports, use the reference number assigned to you in your first call.

Microsoft will not tolerate any retribution or retaliation taken against any person who has, in good faith, reported a possible violation.
