Invitations and Gifts

In compliance with external and internal laws and regulations.
Delivered or accepted without waiting for reciprocity.
Consistent with the interests of our company and with normal business practices.
Occasional and not excessive.
Every time our collaborators receive or deliver a gift to a third party with which Telefónica interacts, including public servants, they must report it through the means that the Compliance Department has provided for it.
If you plan to give a gift to a Telefónica employee or representative, here are seven tips that can help us give and receive gifts with integrity:
It considers that our collaborators cannot receive or offer excessive gifts or invitations, that are not socially acceptable or that have an expectation of reciprocity.
Do not offer gifts to employees or representatives of Telefónica if it is not a general policy applicable to your clients.

Notify our collaborators that you plan to send a gift before doing so, so that they can report it to the Compliance Department in a timely manner.
