You’re Protected when Reporting a Concern

There’s no need to worry about raising a conduct concern. NVIDIA strictly prohibits intimidation or retaliation against anyone who contacts us in good faith to share a potential or actual violation of Our Code. Additionally, those assisting in an inquiry are equally protected.

When you share a concern with us, we commit to handle it discreetly. If you’re concerned about possible retaliatory action, report it immediately to your manager, HR, or the Speak Up Hotline.

Choosing a Category Helps Route the Concern Appropriately

There are various issues types to choose from when filing a report. Once in the system, a description and example of each issue type is provided to help you select the most relevant issue type. Please select the issue type that best describes your concern.

Process for Reporting a Concern

Here’s what to expect when submitting a concern to NVIDIA’s Speak Up Hotline:

  1. Voice Your Concern: If you call by phone, you’ll speak with a third-party team member. If online or via mobile, you’ll be contacted within two business days. In most cases, you may choose to remain anonymous.
  2. Initial Assessment: Based on information you provide, your concern is assigned to an investigations team member who develops an action plan to address it.
  3. Information Gathering: The investigations team member compiles information about your concern, conducts interviews with you and others, as appropriate, and reviews relevant policies.
  4. Review: All information is reviewed by the investigation team, legal and the Compliance Committee.
  5. Completion: You’ll hear from your investigator when the review is complete. You can share feedback about your experience contacting the Compliance Committee at

Note: This high-level process overview may vary depending on your location and nature of the concern.


What type of concerns should I report?

  • You should report concerns of inappropriate business conduct, improper data management or incidents that compromise Our Code. Some examples include:
    • You or someone else has been subjected to unfair treatment, bullying, harassment or discrimination
    • Something was said in the workplace that makes you feel uncomfortable (e.g., a comment about something in the media, a protected class, politics, etc.)
    • Fake/forged receipts submitted for expense reimbursement
    • The sharing of confidential bid information
    • Inappropriate relationships with vendors/partners
    • Leaking of unreleased product information
    • Bribery

What happens after I report a concern?

  • You will be assigned a unique code called a "report key." Write down your report key and password and keep them in a safe place. After two business days, use your report key and password to check your report for feedback or questions. To protect your confidentiality, there is no record of your report key or password. If you lose them, you will have to file a new report.
  • A member of our investigation team, who has had extensive training on Our Code and how to resolve reported issues, will be assigned to each reported concern. They will thoroughly review the concern, only discreetly involving those parties necessary to bring it to resolution.
