Participation in the Competition is open and without any additional costs for persons aged 18 years and older with a place of residence and stay in Germany except for employees of GKE, their relatives and employees of Kanzi® European partners and their relatives. Participants under the age of 18 are obligated to get explicit authorisation from their parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) in order to be able to participate in the Competition. This authorisation has to be presented to GKE upon its first request.

Without prejudice to other provisions of the Terms and Conditions, participation in the Competition is open to everyone who registers his or her participation at www.kanziapple.de/power-taste. Participants can participate one time in the Competition.

3. Drawing procedure

With regard to the relevant provisions as set out in the Terms and Conditions, the winning Participants are drawn at random in the presence of a bailiff to verify the objectiveness and impartialness of the drawing procedure through (i) one drawing from the collective entries of every participant in the Competition.

A Participant can only win one prize at the Competition.

4. Prizes and prize distribution

The following prizes shall be awarded to the winning Participants of the Competition:

The Drawing will take place at the 24th of March 2020 at which 10 (ten) Eventim vouchers (each worth 50 euros) including  one Kanzi surprise package (each worth approx 10 euros) will be awarded to the winners of this drawing.

The winning Participants will receive an e-mail (at their email address given at the registration of their participation) within two weeks after the drawing date at which they have won (being 07 April 2020 at the latest). If the winning Participant does not respond to this e-mail within five calendar days after having received said e-mail, then he/she will lose the right to claim the prize(s) won and GKE will be entitled to designate another Participant as the winner and assign the prize to the latter using the same process as described above.

The prizes will be sent to the home address of the winning Participant(s) as given by the Participant upon request by GKE. By entering into the Competition, the Participant explicitly accepts that the winning of the prize(s) may be subject to the levy of income taxes, for which the Participant is solely and fully responsible. Prizes cannot be exchanged against cash or any other benefits in kind.

In the event that any Participant unlawfully conceals any relevant information in reference to the Competition, commits fraud, acts unlawfully vis-à-vis GKE or any (of its) third part(y)(ies), or violates the Terms and Conditions in any way whatsoever (or tries to do so), then GKE explicitly reserves the right to exclude the Participant(s) in question from entering into this and/or other (future) GKE contests. If the excluded Participant has won one (or more) prize(s) in the Competition, then this (these) prize(s) can be subsequently withdrawn by GKE. Entitlement to the prize(s) shall be forfeited if the prize cannot be submitted within six weeks of the first notification of the prize for reasons attributable to the winner, in which case a substitute winner shall be determined through another drawing following the same rules as above.

5. Data protection

By entering into the Competition, the Participant explicitly accepts that GKE collects, processes and uses the personal data of a Participant (name, address and e-mail address) provided by this Participant at the registration of their participation in the Competition in accordance with the applicable law to carry out the organisation of the Competition, in particular for the purpose of notifying the winning Participants and the winner of the European drawing, publishing their names and countries of residence in their capacity of winning Participants and to prevent any fraud. GKE stores the Participants’ personal data for as long as the Competition lasts.

At consent of the Participant, the personal data (name, surname, address and email-address), which are entered during the registration of the Participant’s participation in the Competition or which GKE receives in any other way in reference of the Competition, will be further stored in the database of GKE after the expiration of the Term and possibly linked to the social media-account of the Participant (for example, Facebook®). These personal data can be used by GKE for making coordinated offers to the Participant or for displaying the Participant coordinated communications on social media (for example, Facebook®) or display advertising. When consent has been granted for sending the Participant GKE’s brochures, then these abovementioned personal data can be processed to adjust the brochures to the interests of the Participant and to display interesting offers for this Participant.

Personal data of Participants processed by GKE can be inspected, corrected, deleted by GKE at any time and/or the use of this personal data can be objected to at any time by the Participant to whom the personal data belongs. To object against the use of his/her personal data, the Participant has to send a notification hereof to the following e-mail address: info@kanziapple.com. The revocation of the Participants’ permission has the consequence that (i) the personal data will be deleted immediately and that (ii) the Participant can no longer participate in the Competition. The personal data will not be transferred to, nor stored, nor processed outside the EU. The personal data controller is GKE. GKE shall comply with the Organic Law 3/2018, of 5 December on the Personal Data Protection and the European General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679) in the processing of personal data collected in the Competition, especially in regard of the attention of the exercise of the rights of information, access, rectification, portability, erasure and restriction of personal data of the Participants.
