FSB expects employees, customers and suppliers alike:
Employees may not generally demand, expect to receive, or accept personal benefits either for themselves or for persons close to them. They may only accept personal benefits (e.g. gifts or invitations to restaurants or sporting events) where there is no impression of their being expected to do anything in return.
The personal benefit must lie within the bounds of standard business practice and may not be in contravention of any law.
Gifts to a total value of €35 per person and year may be presented to business partners and can be claimed as operating expenditure in Germany (Section 4 (5) Income Tax Act EStG). It is additionally permissible to dispense trivial benefits (calendars, ballpoint pens, pendants etc.) of less than €10 per item, based on the cost of either procurement or manufacture.
Personal data may only be collected, used and stored in conformity with the applicable data protection laws. Company and transaction-related data are to be treated confidentially and may only be used in the context of a given remit.
