Participants' Responsibility

We are not responsible for the behaviour and the content published by the participants within the context of the competition and do not adopt it as our own. Furthermore, we are not obliged to review the contents, but reserve the right to reverse their publication if there are sufficient indications that the contents violate legal requirements, official prohibitions, the rights of third parties or morality.

Exclusion in the Event of Misuse: We reserve the right, at any time and without notice, to exclude any entrant who, without express permission, uses multiple email addresses, social media accounts or the like to increase their chances of winning, technically manipulates the competition or the operation of the game, or otherwise violates these Terms of Participation or the law, from participating in the competition, subject to reasonable criteria.

Exclusion of participation intermediaries: The participation of competition or sweepstake agents and other automatically generated mass participation procedures is expressly excluded and will not be taken into account when determining the winner of the competition.

Exclusion of Click Generators and Similar Mass Voting Methods: Prohibited manipulations include the use of "click workers", click generators, the acquisition of voting numbers and likes or comparable services. Especially in the event of complaints from other participants, we must intervene in such cases to protect other participants and their fair chances of winning.

We make decisions on exclusion to an appropriate extent on the basis of objective criteria and indications, such as the rapid increase in a vote within a very short period of time. In the event of exclusion, prizes and benefits may also be subsequently disallowed and reclaimed.

Responsibility for Content: The participants are responsible for the Contents they publish in the context of the Competition. We (and if named sponsors) and our Sponsor(s) are not responsible for the behavior of the participants and the Contents published by the participants in the context of the Competition and do not claim them as our own. Furthermore, we are not obliged to examine such Content, but as the organizer of the Competition, we reserve the right to withdraw its publication if there are concrete indications that the Content violates legal requirements, official prohibitions, the rights of third parties or is immoral.

Participants must ensure that they have the necessary rights to use the Content for participation in this Competition and that their use within the scope of these Terms of Participation does not violate legal regulations, morality and/or the rights of third parties.

If other persons are recognizable on photos or videos in addition to the participants, the submission of such photos or videos is only permitted if the consent of the persons depicted has been obtained and their personal and data protection rights are not violated. Photos or videos not taken by the participants themselves may only be submitted if their authors have given their consent.

Indemnification: As far as claims are made against us or our Sponsor(s) because of contents violating the law or official orders, rights of third parties or these Terms of Participation, which are the responsibility of the participants, the participants indemnify us or our Sponsor(s) from the claims and support us and/or the Sponsor(s) in the defense of the claims. The indemnification includes the necessary legal defense costs.

Use of the Competition Entries

For the purposes of coverage of the Competition, its promotion and the presentation of the entries and winners by us or by our Sponsor(s) in online media (e.g. on websites and in social media) or in print media, the participants grant us the simple right, free of charge, unlimited in time and place, to reproduce, distribute, make publicly accessible, process the entries submitted by them in the context of the Competition, while respecting the personal rights of the participants, and to transfer the exercise of these rights to commissioned third parties, such as technical service providers or agencies. The statutory rights of revocation remain unaffected.

Granting of Rights for Commercial Use of the Winning Entries: Participants also grant us the irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free and transferable right, without obligation to attribute their name, to use their contributions for editorial and commercial purposes (e.g. purposes of advertising or selling) in digital media (including social/mobile media), in print or broadcast formats (e.g. podcast, videocast, air broadcast), in physical form (e.g. displays), and to reproduce, process, publish, make publicly accessible, transmit, combine with other works or parts of works (e.g. with picture, video or sound recordings), edit, change in format, translate or legally transfer to third parties or grant the aforementioned rights to third parties, while preserving the personal rights of the participants.

This transfer of rights also extends to the rights to use images of persons, objects or other motives, insofar as the participants can freely exercise these rights. If participants cannot exercise these rights, they shall inform us accordingly.

Furthermore, the participants agree to sign a further, separate, legally admissible and appropriate agreement with regard to the aforementioned granting of rights at our request.

The participants assure that they are entitled to exercise the aforementioned rights.

The above rights are granted on a non-exclusive basis.

Participants may object to this at any time with effect for the future.

Information on Warranty and Liability

We would like to point out that the competition and the prizes are voluntary services on our part, which are not subject to the same scope of guarantee and liability as, for example, the purchase of such prizes independent of the competition.

Warranty limitations for Prizes: We shall not be liable, subject to our own fault in accordance with the provisions of the liability notices in these conditions of participation, for goods and services won which are not offered on the market by ourselves. In all other respects, the warranty and guarantee conditions of the respective providers of the items and services shall apply, provided that these do not restrict the participants and can be transferred by us to the participants.

Termination or Restriction of the Competition: We would like to point out that the availability and function of the competition can only be guaranteed within the scope of reasonability for us and the participants. The competition may be terminated by us at any time, in particular due to external circumstances and constraints. External circumstances and constraints include, but are not limited to, technical problems, legal changes or mandatory measures by third parties beyond our control.

Differences of Prizes: The prizes shown in the description of the competition may differ from the goods or services presented to the winners, provided that they are equivalent in terms of the prizes described from the point of view of an average participant. According to this, deviations in model, color, locality, etc. may exist.

Liability: The following disclaimers and limitations of liability shall apply to our liability for damages, notwithstanding the other statutory conditions for claims.

Insofar as our liability is excluded or limited, this shall also apply to the personal liability of our employees, representatives and vicarious agents as well as of our Sponsor(s). We shall be liable for the slightly negligent breach of essential obligations, the breach of which endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract, or for the breach of obligations, the fulfilment of which is essential for the proper performance of the competition and on the compliance with which the contracting parties regularly rely (so-called cardinal obligations). In this case, however, we shall only be liable for the foreseeable damage typical of the respective legal realtionship. We shall not be liable for the slightly negligent breach of obligations other than those specified in the preceding sentences. We shall be liable without limitation if the cause of the damage is based on intent or gross negligence. In the case of grossly negligent breach of duty by our vicarious agents, the aforementioned restrictions to the slightly negligent breach of essential obligations shall apply .

The above limitations of liability shall not apply in the event of injury to life, limb or health, in the event of a defect following the granting of quality guarantees for the quality of a product and in the event of fraudulently concealed defects. The liability according to the product liability law remains unaffected.

Legal Recourse: There is no legal recourse with regard to the drawing of the winners and any evaluation of the entries submitted in the competition.

Newsletter Subscription

We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information (hereinafter referred to as "newsletters") only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of the newsletter are specifically described within the framework of registration, they are decisive for the consent of the user. Otherwise, our newsletters contain information about our services and us.

In order to subscribe to our newsletters, it is generally sufficient to enter your e-mail address. We may, however, ask you to provide a name for the purpose of contacting us personally in the newsletter or to provide further information if this is required for the purposes of the newsletter.

The registration to our newsletter takes place in general in a so-called Double-Opt-In procedure. This means that you will receive an e-mail after registration asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with external e-mail addresses.

The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes storing the login and confirmation times as well as the IP address. Likewise the changes of your data stored with the dispatch service provider are logged.

We may store the unsubscribed email addresses for up to three years based on our legitimate interests before deleting them to provide evidence of prior consent. The processing of these data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual deletion request is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of a consent is confirmed at the same time. In the case of an obligation to permanently observe an objection, we reserve the right to store the e-mail address solely for this purpose in a blacklist.

The sending of the newsletter is based on the consent of the recipients or, if consent is not required, on the basis of our legitimate interests in direct marketing. Insofar as we engage a service provider for sending e-mails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests. The registration procedure is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purpose of demonstrating that it has been conducted in accordance with the law.

Performance measurement: The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file, which is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened or, if we use a mailing service provider, from its server. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are first collected.

This information is used for the technical improvement of our newsletter on the basis of technical data or target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of their retrieval points (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or access times. This analysis also includes determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. It is, however, neither our endeavour nor, if used, that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
