Our competition terms and conditions

As the operator of the entertainment portal Spielpunkt – Games and entertainment we offer our readers opportunities to participate in competitions at regular intervals.

When selecting the companies that cooperate with us, we pay attention to seriousness and fairness. Competitions from the topics of board games, gaming and hardware, events, literature as well as films and series serve our readers only as added value to our editorial offers.

We are not interested in “data capture”, nor do we want to press our website visitors into interactions that they would not carry out with a clear conscience without participating in one of our competitions.    

Of course, we are still happy about every single interaction, which we see as an appreciation of our work. 

In order to make our competitions transparent, fair and legally valid, we ask participants to read the following competition terms and conditions carefully. If you still have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Determination of the winners

The winners will be determined after the closing date as part of a random raffle among all participants.

Attention: If the competition is linked to a task, only those participants who have carried out the task correctly will be entered into the raffle.

The winners of the raffle will be informed promptly of the prize via a separate email or an instant message on social media. The prize will be sent exclusively to the winner or to the legal representative of the minor winner. An exchange, collection by the customer and a cash payment of the prize are not possible.

Any costs incurred for shipping within Germany will be borne by the operator. Additional costs associated with claiming the prize will be borne by the winner. The winner is responsible for any taxation of the profit.

If the winner does not respond within a period of 14 days after being requested to do so, the prize can be transferred to another participant.

End of the competition

The organizer expressly reserves the right to end the competition without prior notice and without giving reasons.

This applies in particular to any reason that would disrupt or prevent the competition from running according to plan.

(Note: Don't worry, we hate SPAM too and send a maximum of three newsletters to our subscribers per month),

Severability
