Participants’ responsibility

We are not responsible for the conduct of and the content published by the participants in the competition, and we do not make this ours. Furthermore, we are not required to check the contents but reserve the right to withdraw from publication if there are concrete indications that the content breaches statutory requirements, official prohibitions, third party rights or good morals.

Exclusion in the case of abuse: We reserve the right to exclude participants who use multiple email addresses, social media accounts or similar to increase their chances of winning without this being expressly permitted, who technically manipulate the competition or the competition structure or otherwise breach these participation conditions or the law at any time without prior notification from taking part in the competition, taking into account reasonableness criteria.

Indemnification shall include the necessary legal defence costs.

Naming the competition participants

The names of the participants may be disclosed in conjunction with the competition or presentation of the participants’ contributions and winners by us or by our sponsor(s) in online media (e.g. websites and social media) or in print media. The participants can refuse this for the future at any time.

Information about guarantee and liability

Please note that the competition and the prizes are voluntary payments by us, to which the same guarantee and liability do not apply compared to, for example, a purchasing the prizes independently of the competition.

Guarantee restrictions for prizes: Subject to our own fault according to the conditions of the provisions in the liability information in these participation conditions, we are not liable for won items and services not offered by ourselves. Moreover, the guarantee and warranty conditions of the respective providers of the items and services shall apply, insofar as these do not restrict the participants and can be transferred by us to the participants.

Suspending or restricting the competition: Please note that the availability and function of the competition can only be guaranteed within the framework of reasonableness for us and the participants. The competition can be ended by us at any time, notably due to external circumstances and forces. External circumstances and forces include, above all, technical problems, statutory changes or actions by third parties outside our control.

Liability: Irrespective of the other statutory claim requirements, the following liability exclusions and restrictions apply to our liability for compensation:

Insofar as our liability is excluded or restricted, this shall also apply to the personal liability of our employees, representatives and vicarious agents and to liability of the sponsor(s). We are liable for slight negligent breach of material duties, the infringement of which endangers the attainment of the contractual purpose, or for the breach of duties, the fulfilment of which facilitates the proper realisation of the competition and the compliance with which the contractual partners can regularly rely (co-called cardinal duties). In this case, however, we are liable only for foreseeable, typical contractual damage. We are not liable for slight negligent breach of the duties referred to in the previous clauses by others. We are liable without restriction insofar as the cause of the damage is due to culpable or gross negligence. In the case of gross negligent breach of duty by our vicarious agents, the above restrictions for the slight negligent breach of cardinal duties shall apply.

The above liability restrictions do not apply in the case of injury to life, limb and health to a defect after assuming quality guarantees for the quality of a product and in the case of maliciously concealed defects. Liability according to the Product Liability Act remains unaffected.

Legal action: Legal action regarding the drawing of the winners and any assessment of the competition entries is excluded.

Data protection information

We process personal data (hereinafter also referred to as “data”) of the participants of competitions only in accordance with the applicable data protection provisions, insofar as the processing is required for the provision, realisation and settlement of the competition (Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. b. GDPR), the participants have consented (Art. 6 (1) sent. 1 lit. a GDPR) or the processing serves our justified interests (e.g. the security of the competition or to protect our interests against abuse by possible collection of IP addresses when submitting competition entries).

The participants’ data is only transmitted to other locations if this is necessary for the realisation of the competition (e.g. for sponsor(s) to send prizes or in conjunction with the realisation by hired technical service providers or agents) or if a participant has consented to the transmission.

As part of the competition, we inform the participants of which of their details are needed for participation.

The participants’ data is deleted as soon as the competition has ended and the data is no longer needed to inform the winners or because feedback regarding the competition is expected. In principle, the participants’ data is deleted no later than 6 months after the end of the competition. Winners’ data may be kept longer in order to answer any questions about the prizes or to fulfil won services; in this case the period of retention depends on the type of prize and is, for example for items or services, up to three years so that guarantee cases, for example, can be processed. Furthermore, the participants’ data may be stored longer, e.g. in the form of reports about the competition in online and offline media.

If data has been collected during the competition for other purposes, its processing and retention period shall be based on data protection information regarding this use (e.g. in the case of registering for the newsletter within the framework of the competition).
