Conditions of Participation in Sweepstakes

Sweepstakes and organizer

The organizer of the competitions is netcup GmbH, Daimlerstraße 25, 76185, Karlsruhe, Germany (hereinafter "Organizer"). Participation in the competition is based exclusively on the following conditions of participation.


Any natural person over the age of 14 is entitled to participate. If a participant is limited in his legal capacity, the consent of his legal representative is required.

Employees of the organizer and their direct relatives are excluded from participating in the competition.

Each person can only enter the competition once.

To participate in some of the competitions, it can be necessary to provide personal data (first name, last name and [E-mail] address; see data protection declaration).

Participation is free and does not require the purchase of any goods or services.

Participation in the competitions depend on the complete fulfilment of the present conditions of participation. Inaccurate information or incomplete entries cannot be considered.

By participating in competitions, each participant expressly agrees to the present conditions of participation.

Execution and settlement

Any competitions take place online in the netcup forum and are carried out by answering questions, completing surveys, or posting content-related contributions on specific topics.

Each competition receives its own discussion thread, in which it is initially explained what specifically is required for participation, what potential prizes there are, and how long participation is possible.

It is also initially explained whether a prize will be awarded by chance (drawing) or by decision (e.g., selection of a suitable suggestion).

Participation in any sweepstakes is valid for the period announced.

People who have won a prize will only be informed of their prize by direct message in the forum after the closing date for entries.

The winners must confirm receipt of the prize notification and the claiming of the prize within two weeks of notification of the prize, considering the contact options provided.

If there is no confirmation, an attempt will be made to award the prize to another competition participant.

If there is no confirmation in this case either or if the prize cannot be awarded for other reasons (which cannot be attributed to netcup GmbH), the prize in the original competition will be forfeited in full and will be made available in the context of another.

The claim to the prize also lapses if the prize cannot be handed over or transmitted within four weeks of the first notification of the prize, provided these reasons are the responsibility of the respective winner. Any transfer of the prize at the expense of the organizer will only take place within these 4 weeks.

Entitlement to the prize is non-assignable and non-transferrable; moreover, the prize cannot be paid out in cash, nor can it be supplemented and/or changed.

If, for whatever reason, the prize cannot be made available, the organizer reserves the right to award an equivalent prize.

Exclusion of participation – early termination of the competition

In the event of a breach of these conditions of participation, the organizer reserves the right to exclude participants from the competition.

Furthermore, the organizer reserves the right to exclude participants who use unauthorized aids or otherwise gain advantages through manipulation, for example through collective or multiple participation.

Furthermore, untrue personal information can lead to exclusion.

The organizer is entitled to prematurely cancel, suspend, or change the competition if unforeseen circumstances beyond the organizer's control occur which make the original execution more difficult or unreasonable for the organizer.

Final Provisions

The legal process is excluded.

The organizer is not liable for damages resulting from or in connection with participation in the competition.

Should any of these provisions be or become invalid, the validity of the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected.
