    (1) Participation in the contest is free. All users of full age resident within the European Union or the European Economic Area, who comply with the requirements of the Standard Terms and Conditions of Use, and who have a personal, active account (‘account’) for tera.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 17th October 2019 and 31st October 2019, 11:59 PM CET (‘participation period’).

    (3) The subject of the contest is the independent creation of an artwork with a recognisable reference to TERA and Halloween (‘artwork’) as well as the submission of the photo within the participation period as per the following guidelines (‘entry’) :

    a) The artwork, which should be in .jpg or .png format and should not exceed a maximum size of 5 MB, must be sent to contest@tera-europe.com from the email address associated with the account using the subject line ‘Halloween in TERA’.

    b) The email should also include the character name belonging to the account, and the associated game server. It should also indicate whether and by which additional or alternative identification the participant wishes to be identified as the creator of the artwork as part of the presentation (as per 2(3)), should they win. If no provision is made for this, the participant consents that the character name 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 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 a total of 10 artworks 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 6th November 2019 via email, sent to the email address used for their entry (‘notification’).

    (3) In recognition of their efforts, Gameforge may present the winners’ character names and game servers or the identification chosen as per 1(3)(b), as well as the respective artworks, on their own internet pages (including the TERA Steam page and forum) and the presences maintained by Gameforge on the social networks Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (together the ‘Gameforge sites’) from 6th November 2019 (‘presentation’).

    (4) The winners will receive prizes as stated in the contest announcement. The material prizes will be dispatched by a delivery service provider (‘service provider’) commissioned by Gameforge from 29th November 2019 and requires a valid postal address within the European Union or European Economic Area (‘address’). Gameforge will ask the winners to reply to the notification with their addresses by 24th November 2019, 11:59 PM CET 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 digital content, this will be added to the winner’s account within two weeks of notification.

    (6) 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.

    (7) 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 and revocable right to use the artwork depicting proprietary elements of TERA for the purposes of 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 artwork where required without limitation of time and place. This includes the right to reproduce and edit the artwork (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 created the artwork 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 character name, email address, and the address as provided by winners) 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 service 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. 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.

    (6) 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.
