eco Complaints Office
The eco Complaints Office has been fighting illegal content in the Internet for more than 15 years now. It is embedded in the system of regulated self-regulation and has the special task of improving youth protection in the Internet. Suspect Internet content of any kind can be submitted via the portal Beschwerdestelle.eco.de by using the report form. The report can be made anonymously, if desired. The eco Complaints Office has been successfully supporting the German Federal Criminal Police Office in the fight against child pornography and other illegal Internet content since 1996. eco is also a founding member of the international network of complaints hotlines, INHOPE. The INHOPE network includes more than 50 complaints offices from 45 countries, which forward complaints to each other if the reported content is not hosted in their own country.
