If you choose to report anonymously we will not ask you for any personally identifiable details.

Anonymous reports enable us to build a picture of issues where people do not feel able to reveal personal information, but would like Queen Mary to be aware something has taken place.  Anonymous reports provide statistical information, which we use to monitor trends at Queen Mary.  This informs our proactive and preventative work on tackling bullying and harassment, hate incidents and gender-based violence.

We will not normally act on individual anonymous reports.  However, where an anonymous report raises concerns that breach our statutory duty to protect the welfare of employees or our safeguarding of/duty of care for students, reports may be shared with appropriate senior personnel in the university. The decision to share reports will be made by at least two senior users of Report and Support.

When a member of staff or a student is named and/or identifiable within the report, the University will seek to take appropriate action. This will normally include notifying the person as soon as is reasonably practical (but no later than one month) that they have been named in an anonymous report. Please be aware that the alleged perpetrator has the right to request that their personal data (i.e. identifying information, such as their name) is removed from the report.  They also have the right to make a Subject Access Request for a copy of information we hold about them.  In determining whether it is reasonable to disclose the information, we will take into account all of the relevant circumstances, including the type of information that we would disclose; any duty of confidentiality we owe you as the reporting party and/or any express refusal of consent by you. 

We will not be disclosing information about you if you can be identified from that information, except if you have consented to the disclosure or if we consider it reasonable to comply with the request without your consent.

We will not be disclosing information about you if you can be identified from that information, except if you have consented to the disclosure or if we consider it reasonable to comply with the request without your consent.

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions or process flowchart if you require more information about how we process reports.

Please provide as much detail about dates, times and locations, as you are able to. If as a result of this report you would like Queen Mary to take formal action we recommend you fill in the report with contact details.

The following questions are optional. We monitor reports by these equality groups to better inform our work and to take a more evidence-based approach to targeting action and resources. For example, we might want to know how many men compared to women have made a report in the last 6 months. The equality monitoring information you provide in these questions is for statistical purposes and will be used when collated with numbers large enough to ensure individuals cannot be identified.
