Academic Whistleblower System - the system for the academic sector in Austria
ACOmarket is a non-profit subsidiary of the Austrian universities and the ACONET association. ACOmarket offers services for all ACONET members. 

A university's own Academic Whistleblower System ensures that whistleblowing reaches the university directly. Many universities already have put such a system in place. You can find these systems at:
[univ] stands for the abbreviation/domain name of the university.

Whistleblowers can rely on their input remaining anonymous in the system and being reliably processed. If necessary, this can also be done by our law firm, which is directly connected to the system.

How our whistleblower system helps protect your privacy

  • No identifying information is provided to the contacts.
  • Your message will be stylometrically redacted to provide you with an even higher level of anonymity. We remove all punctuation and convert all words to lowercase."
  • All information is end-to-end encrypted, so your sensitive information remains safe.

What you can do to protect yourself

  • You should not use a device (smartphone, computer, etc) that is provided by your employer.
  • You should not use the kinds of idioms or abbreviations that you frequently use in conversations or when writing emails.
