Opportunities for participation, rules of participation, prize draws etc. that deviate from this competition mechanism will be explained to the participant immediately on the competition entry screen. In such a case - unless otherwise described there - only these deviating regulations apply.

(2) Winners will be notified by email after the competition has ended. The handover of the prizes is then carried out in direct contact between the winner and the prize sponsor in accordance with the following conditions for notification of prizes and forfeiture of prizes in §§ 4 and 5.
If the competition is organized directly on Facebook, the winners will be notified by the organizer via the Facebook profile of the respective winner after the competition has ended. Alternatively, the winners can also be announced after the end of the competition via the organizer's Facebook profile. Each winner must then report within 4 working days after receipt of the notification of the winnings in their Facebook profile or announcement of the winner in the Facebook profile of the organizer via a private message to the organizer's Facebook page with his real name. If a winner does not respond within this period, the prize is forfeited.

(3) The item presented as a prize in the competition is not necessarily identical to the item won. Rather, there may be deviations in terms of model, color, etc. The prize sponsor reserves the right to select an item of medium quality and type as the prize.

(4) The non-cash prizes (with the exception of motor vehicles and travel) will be sent by the prize sponsor or a third party commissioned by him to the postal address specified by the winner by forwarding agency, parcel service or post. The delivery is free of charge in the Federal Republic of Germany. Any additional transport costs and customs duties are to be borne by the winner. The place of performance remains the seat of the award sponsor despite assuming the shipping costs. In the event that the delivery is made via a shipping company, the shipping company will contact the winner to arrange a delivery date. Deliveries are usually made Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. The winner must also provide a substitute address in their immediate vicinity to which the prize can be delivered in their absence.

The same goes for motorcycles and comparable prices.

(6) In the case of travel wins, the settlement takes place between the winner and the respective award sponsor or a tour operator commissioned by them. There is no entitlement to a specific travel date. If the trip is not carried out on the date or period specified in the competition, there is no longer any entitlement to the prize. With the confirmation of the trip the winner is subject to the travel conditions of the organizer. The journey to and from the starting point of the journey (airport, train station, etc.) is at the expense of the winner, unless otherwise stated in the competition or expressly agreed. The same applies to all private costs that arise during the trip (minibar, telephone, etc.). The value of the trip in the advertising text refers to the most expensive travel time and is therefore subject to seasonal deviations and currency fluctuations, depending on the time at which the trip is made available and used. The winner takes note of this and agrees that a possible difference in value in any form is excluded.

 

§5 forfeiture of profit
Unless otherwise regulated in these conditions of participation, the winner is obliged to report within four (4) weeks of sending the notification. Otherwise the entitlement to the prize is forfeited. Unless otherwise regulated in these conditions of participation, in these cases a new winner will be determined by lot. Entitlement to the prize also lapses if the prize cannot be transmitted within four (4) weeks after the first notification of the prize for reasons related to the person of the winner. The different deadlines specified in § 4 (5) or (6) apply to vehicle prizes and travel prizes.


§6 Premature termination of the competition
The organizer reserves the right to cancel or end the competition at any time without prior notice and without giving reasons. The organizer makes use of this option in particular if, for technical reasons (e.g. viruses in the computer system, manipulation or errors in the hardware and / or software) or for legal reasons, proper implementation of the competition cannot be guaranteed. If such a termination is caused by the behavior of a participant, the organizer can demand compensation from this person for the damage incurred.

In addition, the organizer is also liable for the simply negligent breach of a cardinal obligation. Cardinal obligations are those, the fulfillment of which enables the proper execution of the competition and the achievement of the contractual purpose in the first place and compliance with which a competition participant can regularly rely. The above limitation of liability applies in particular to damage caused by errors, delays or interruptions in the transmission of data, malfunctions in the technical systems or the service, incorrect content, loss or deletion of data, viruses or in any other way when using the application. Liability under the Product Liability Act remains unaffected.

(5) In the case of travel wins, the organizer is also not liable for the consequences of a justified change in the travel offer or the justified cancellation of the trip by the tour operator. The possibility of paying out the travel value is excluded.

§10 miscellaneous

(2) The law of the Federal Republic of Germany is exclusively applicable.

(3) Should any of these provisions be or become invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining conditions of participation.
