In the event of a breach of these conditions of participation, the organizer reserves the right to exclude the participant from the competition. In such cases, prizes may also be subsequently withdrawn and reclaimed.
Insofar as the liability of the organizer is excluded or limited in accordance with the provisions of this exclusion of liability, this also applies to the personal liability of organs, employees, representatives and vicarious agents.

In the event of disputes, German law shall apply exclusively. As far as legally permissible, the organiser's registered office is agreed as the place of jurisdiction. If the participant does not have a general place of jurisdiction in Germany or moves his/her place of residence abroad after participation, the organiser's registered office is also agreed as the place of jurisdiction.

The Promoter reserves the right to cancel the competition at any time without prior notice for good cause.
