    The following conditions govern the course of the “Back to Adventures Contest” (“contest”) as organized by Gameforge 4D GmbH, Albert-Nestler-Strasse 8, 76131 Karlsruhe, Germany (“Gameforge”).

    1. Eligibility, Participants and Participation

    (1) Participation in the contest is free. All users of full age, who comply with the requirements of the Standard Terms and Conditions of Use, and who have a personal, active account (“account”) for runesofmagic.gameforge.com are eligible to enter. Employees of Gameforge and companies associated with Gameforge, as well as relatives thereof, are allowed to participate but are excluded from receipt of any prizes.

    (2) A “participant” is any person entitled to participate as per (1) who participates as described in (3) between 16th September 2019 and 6th October 2019, 11:59 PM CEST (“participation period”).

    (3) The subject of the contest is the creation of up to two screenshots which portray the participant’s character in their adventure outfit (“screenshot”), along with a description of up to five sentences in English, describing the adventurous plans for the period after the summer holidays, including a list of in-game items which need to be packed for said upcoming adventures. The screenshot and description should be submitted during the participation period in accordance with the following guidelines (“entry”):

    b) The entry should be made in .JPG, .BMP, .PNG, .GIF, .TIFF, .TXT, .DOCX, .DOC, .ODT or .PDF format with a maximum file size of 5 MB.

    c) The entry must be sent to back_to_adventures@runesofmagic.com from the email address associated with the account using the subject line Back to adventures!. The email should also detail the nickname and game server associated with the account. It should also indicate whether and by which additional or alternative identification the participant wishes to be identified as the creator of the winning entry as part of the presentation (as per 2(3)), should they win. If no provision is made for this, the participant consents that the nickname they provided is sufficient and permissible as an identifier. 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 made before or after the participation period or multiple entries, including entries made in connection with different accounts, will not be considered.

    2. Winners and Prizes

    (1) Gameforge will select a total of 5 entries from amongst all eligible entries based on their creativity and originality. The “winners” are those participants who created these entries.

    (2) Gameforge will inform the winners by 18th October 2019 via email, sent to the email address used for their entry (“notification”).

    (3) In recognition of their efforts, Gameforge may present the winner’s entries (“presentation”) on their own internet pages (including the Runes of Magic Steam page and forum) as well as the presences maintained by Gameforge on the social networks Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (together the “Gameforge sites”), stating the associated nicknames or the chosen identifier as per 1(3)(d), and the game server.

    (4) The winners will receive prizes as stated in the contest announcement. These prizes will be dispatched by a delivery service provider (“service provider”) commissioned by Gameforge from 21st October 2019 and requires a valid postal address (“address”). Gameforge will ask the winners to reply to the notification with their addresses by 15th November 2019, 11:59 PM CEST at the latest (“response”). Responses that Gameforge receives late or does not receive at all will lead to loss of entitlement to the prize.

    (5) In as far as the prize consists of a coupon, this will be sent to the winner’s email address used for the entry within one week of notification. Material prizes are deemed to have been awarded to the winners by Gameforge with the handover of the prizes to the service provider. If a material 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. Gameforge will not be liable for any further delivery attempt. A cash payment and/or payment of the prize in physical goods as well as an exchange and/or transfer of the prizes to third parties are all excluded.

    3. Rights of Use and Indemnity

    (1) For the purpose of participation in the contest, Gameforge grants the participant the free-of-charge, non-exclusive right while playing Runes of Magic to the extent required for creating screenshots and making their entry. Gameforge reserves all rights in as far as not expressly granted as usage rights by these Terms and Conditions.

    (2) For the purposes of the presentation, the participant grants Gameforge the free-of-charge, non-exclusive and revocable right to use the entry where required without limitation of time and place. This includes the right to reproduce and edit the entry (esp. adjustments to format and image size), to make it accessible on the Gameforge sites and to provide the necessary rights to the affected platform providers.

    (3) By submitting their entry, the participant provides assurance that they produced it themselves, guarantees that this does not infringe on the rights of third parties, and indemnifies Gameforge against all claims from third parties based on the infringement of third-party rights in connection with the entry.

    4. Data Privacy

    (1) Gameforge will collect the personal data provided by the participants (including user data for the account, i.e. the associated nickname, email address, the address as provided by winners, and the form of identification chosen per 1(3)(d)) in accordance with data protection requirements and process this exclusively for the purposes of running the contest. This includes checking eligibility for participation and adherence to the rules (as per 6(2)), as well as, where applicable, the delivery of the prizes and provision of the address to the server provider, the notification and the presentation.

    (2) The personal data collected will be stored for the duration of the contest and then subsequently deleted. The presentation which, for reasons of transparency is principally always kept permanently available for retrieval, will not be deleted unless otherwise requested by the respective winner. 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 and will only be processed for the purposes of compliance.

    (3) Further information on Gameforge’s handling of personal data can be found in the Privacy Policy (see in particular point 3.9 regarding the holding of contests and the significant legal basis for processing of this data, as well as point 6 on the rights of the data subject).

    5. Disclaimer

    Gameforge, its bodies, employees, and subcontractors are liable exclusively for wilful intent and gross negligence, regardless of legal basis, and in cases of ordinary negligence, only for the violation of essential contractual obligations and limited to foreseeable damages, as far as not precluded by other compulsory statutory provisions. These limitations do not apply for the loss of life, personal injury or damage to health.

    6. Final Provisions

    (1) The participant agrees to these Terms and Conditions by submitting their entry.

    (2) In addition to these Terms and Conditions, the Standard Terms and Conditions of Use also apply (together the “rules”).

    (3) Should a participant infringe upon the rules during the execution of the contest, or such an infringement be proven thereafter, Gameforge may revoke their eligibility to participate.

    (4) Gameforge reserves the right to end the contest before the end of the participation period, should an important reason arise. An important reason would in particular be if the proper execution of the contest cannot be guaranteed for technical or legal reasons.

    (5) The contractual relationship is governed by German law to the exclusion of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the referral regulations of international private law. If the participant has as his usual domicile a location in another country within the European Union during the extent of the contest, the validity of the strictly applicable legal regulations of the country in question shall remain unaffected by the choice of law made in the prior sentence. In the event that any individual provision of these conditions becomes ineffective, the remaining provisions shall remain effective and binding. The unenforceable provision shall be substituted for the relevant statutory provision.
