§ 3 Participants in competitions:


Natural persons over the age of 18 are eligible to participate.


The individual data of the participating persons must be filled out correctly by them, otherwise this person can be excluded from the competition.


Each natural person may only take part in the respective competition once.


FALSTAFF will notify the winners in writing by post and / or email. FALSTAFF is entitled to transmit the winner's data to the cooperation partners (see in particular point 4) in order to enable the prize to be delivered. If FALSTAFF only knows the winner's email address, the winner will be notified by email. If the winner does not contact his or her complete postal address within four weeks of sending the notification, the entitlement to the prize expires and a new winner will be determined by lot.


In the case of travel wins, the processing takes place exclusively in direct contact between the winner and the respective cooperation partner or a tour operator commissioned by them. If a travel date is not already specified in the competition itself, the date for the trip is reserved solely for the cooperation partner or tour operator. There is no entitlement to a specific travel date. If the trip is not accepted on the date or period specified by the cooperation partner or tour operator, 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 respective organizer. The arrival and departure are 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 relates to the most expensive travel time and is therefore subject to seasonal factors, depending on the time at which the trip is available and used deviations and currency fluctuations. The winner takes note of this and agrees that a possible difference in value in any form is excluded.


A cash payment of the prizes or a possible replacement prize is expressly excluded. The claim to the profit or the replacement of the profit cannot be assigned.


FALSTAFF reserves the right to cancel or end the competition at any time without prior notice and without giving reasons. Any claim by the participant due to the cancellation of the competition by FALSTAFF, in whatever form, is hereby expressly excluded. FALSTAFF 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 execution of the game cannot be guaranteed. If such a termination is caused by the behaviours of a participant, FALSTAFF can demand compensation from this person for the damage incurred. FALSTAFF also reserves the right to exclude a user from participating in a competition. This is especially true if he violates one or more points of these terms of use.


The user hereby expressly waives the legal assertion of claims arising from or in connection with the respective competition; this in whatever form.


FALSTAFF is not liable for the quality of the respective prize and / or for material and / or legal defects in connection with the prize. With the handover of the prize to the winner, Falstaff is also released from all possible obligations, unless such a release has already taken place at an earlier point in time.
