How to report an error in the WISE data?

I discovered an error in the "WISE other large rivers and tributaries" shape file downloadable at[…]/wise-large-rivers-and-large-lakes Where can I report this kind of error? I did not find any mail contact address, online contact form or similar.
Description of the error: In the above mentioned shape file, the French river Cher is named Indre and the river Indre is missing in the data.

Dear M. Rainer U.,

The WISE large rivers and lakes dataset is based on countries reporting in relation Water Framework Directive (WFD) first River Basin Management Plans (RBMP) and the EEA will not update this dataset. Indeed, this dataset has been further updated with the second RBMPs data and the latest version of the WFD spatial reference dataset is available here[…]/wise-wfd-spatial-3 . We would then suggest that you use this latter for reference.

With kind regard,
