If it is not possible to distribute a prize to a winner determined in the draw because notification of the prize and/or delivery of the prize fail and cannot be made good within one month of the draw, the claim to the prize shall be forfeited.

The same shall apply if it only becomes apparent after the draw that a winner was excluded from participation or that the conditions for exclusion pursuant to Clause 10 exist or existed.

12. Legal action and liability
No correspondence will be entered into about the competition. The legal process is excluded. There is no enforceable claim to the payment of the winnings.

Data communication via the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be always error-free and available according to the current state of technology. The organizer is therefore not liable for the constant and uninterrupted availability of the online systems used by him, nor for technical and electronic errors of a telemedia service over which he has no control, not for disruptions such as the loss, delay, alteration, manipulation or misdirection of e-mails, which have their cause in external data networks, external telephone lines or other hardware or software of the participants or third parties. The same applies to malfunctions about the entry, recording, transmission and storage of data, in particular also for faulty, missing, interrupted, deleted or defective data records.

Furthermore, no liability shall be assumed if e-mails or data entries (in masks of the competition pages) do not comply with the requirements set out therein and are consequently not accepted or accepted by the system. The organizer is also not liable for theft or destruction of the systems or storage media storing the data. The same applies in case of unauthorized modification or manipulation of the data by the participants or third parties.

The organizer shall only be liable for damages other than those resulting from injury to life, body, or health insofar as these are based on intentional or grossly negligent actions on the part of the organizer or its vicarious agents. In the event of a culpable breach of an essential contractual obligation, the organizer shall also be liable for negligent breaches of duty. Essential contractual obligations are those that make the execution of the contract possible in the first place and on whose compliance the participant may regularly rely.
