    (3) The subject of the contest is the independent creation of three screenshots which each depict a character belonging to the account in a special gaming moment for the participant (“screenshots”). Each screenshot should have a comment of up to 50 words in English explaining why the moment is special (“comments”) and together with the screenshots they should be submitted in accordance with the following requirements (together the “entry”):

    d) The entry must be sent to 10_anniversary@runesofmagic.com from the email address associated with the account with the subject line “RoM 10th Anniversary”.

    Further, the email should also detail the game server associated with the account, and the name of the character portrayed. It should also state how the participant wishes to be identified as the copyright holder as the creator of the comments as part of the presentation, should they win. If the participant does not provide any indication of preference, they provide their general agreement that the provision of the character name and server being played on is sufficient as identification. Should the participant prefer to eschew any form of identification, they may indicate as such in their entry.

    (4) Each participant is permitted only one entry. Entries submitted outside of the participation period as well as multiple entries, including entries linked to different accounts, will not be considered.

    2. Winners and Prizes

    (1) Gameforge will select 7 entries from all valid entries. The “winners” are those participants who created these selected entries.

    (2) Gameforge will announce the winners by 19th April 2019 on the internet sites (including the Runes of Magic Steam page) and social networks maintained by Gameforge (together the “Gameforge sites”) using the respective game servers and the form of identification chosen as per 1(3)(d), and inform them of their win via an email sent to the email address used for the entry (“notification”).

    (3) The winners will receive prizes as part of the contest announcement.

Gameforge will ask the winners in the notification to provide their address in reply by 17th May 2019, 11:59 PM CET at the latest (“response”). The winners can also indicate their preferred T-shirt size (M or L). Where possible, Gameforge will take this preference into consideration, however there is no entitlement to a specific T-shirt size. Responses that Gameforge receives late or does not receive at all will lead to loss of entitlement to the respective prize.

    (4) The prizes are deemed to have been awarded to the winners by Gameforge with the handover of the prizes to the service provider. If a prize cannot be delivered as the result of an erroneous address supplied by the winner, this will be at the expense of the affected winner.

    (5) Finally, in recognition of the winners’ efforts, Gameforge will present the entries on the Gameforge sites, providing the form of identification as per 1(3)(d) (“presentation”).

This includes checking eligibility for participation and adherence to the participation requirements, as well as, where applicable, the delivery of the prizes and provision of the address to the server provider, the notification and the announcement of the winners on the Gameforge sites using the identification chosen as per 1(3)(d).

    (2) The personal data collected will initially be stored for the duration of the contest and then subsequently deleted. This excludes the identification chosen according to 1(3)(d) publicized on the Gameforge sites as part of the presentation, which is stored permanently for reasons of transparency. To the extent that legal retention requirements stipulate longer-term storage, the affected data will be deleted at the latest following the expiry of such obligations.
