1 Operator and Terms of Participation
1.1 The operator of this raffle is meala GmbH, Dolziger Str. 7, 10247 Berlin. Participation is governed exclusively by the following conditions of participation.
1.2 Participation in our raffle is free of charge, the participant only has to pay the fees for the internet connection. By participating, the participant does not enter into any contractual or other obligation towards the operator. The competition is subject to the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. Legal recourse is excluded; there is no enforceable claim to payment of the winnings (§ 762 BGB).
1.3 All persons over the age of 18 are eligible to participate, except employees of the participating companies and their relatives. The winners will be selected by lot from all participants (with correct solutions) and subsequently notified by email. A cash payment of the prize value is not possible. Winnings are usually kindly provided to us by partners.
1.4 The operator reserves the right to exclude individual participants from the competition for objectively justified reasons, even after the draw. This applies in particular to participants who take part in the draw more than once using several e-mail addresses or via third parties (straw men). Expressly excluded from participation are such mailings that are made by commissioned companies for their customers. Likewise, such participants may be excluded who violate the conditions of participation in any other way or attempt to influence the course of the lottery through unauthorized influence.
1.5 The operator reserves the right to terminate or interrupt the competition at any time for good cause. An important reason exists in particular if the scheduled course of the competition is disturbed or impeded. If winning packages are returned to the editorial office because address details are incomplete or incorrect, the editorial office also reserves the right to draw a new winner. In the case of competitions in which the participant only provides his/her e-mail address, the editors will ask for the delivery address in the event of a win. If the winner does not provide a delivery address within three weeks of the notification being sent, the editors reserve the right to draw a new winner.
2.1 When registering, the user must provide the data requested in the registration mask. There is no legal claim to registration. The operator is entitled to refuse registration without giving reasons. The User is obligated to notify the Operator of any subsequent changes to his/her data on his/her own initiative.
