Reporting Violations

Your concerns are important to us. If you see a possible violation of Microsoft's Standards of Business Conduct, company policies, laws or regulatory requirements, it is important to report your concerns as soon as possible.

To help you speak up about your concerns, Microsoft offers a variety of reporting options. You may also use these resources to ask questions or obtain guidance regarding a business practice or compliance issue.

 
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.

The Microsoft Integrity Hotline is managed by a third party, The Network, and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Network will document your concern and relay the information to Microsoft.
