Will my call or incident report remain anonymous?

Convercent provides three options to suit the level of confidentiality you require.

    You will not reveal your name or contact information to Seaspan, The Washington Companies or our ethics reporting partner. Your identity is completely protected on the incident report.
  • Remain anonymous toward organization:
    You are comfortable revealing your name and contact information to our ethics reporting partner, but not to Seaspan or The Washington Companies. This partner may contact you confidentially to gather additional information, but will not reveal your identity at any time to Seaspan.

    You do not care about anonymity. You choose to reveal your name and identity to both Seaspan and to our ethics reporting partner.
