7.2 If the event is cancelled or if it has to take place in whole or in part with the exclusion of spectators in accordance with a competent association or authority, the prize shall be forfeited without compensation. In such cases, the organiser shall not be liable to the participant for futile expenses (e.g. futile travel and accommodation costs).

– offer or sell the prize publicly, in particular at auctions or on the Internet (e.g. on eBay, classified ads, Facebook) or on sales platforms not authorised by the Organiser (e.g. viagogo etc.); or

– to sell or pass on to commercial or business resellers or ticket dealers; or

– to use or allow to be used commercially or commercially without the express prior written consent of the Organiser, in particular for the purposes of advertising, marketing, as a bonus, as a promotional gift, as a prize or as part of an unauthorised hospitality or travel package.

In the event of a breach of this provision, the Organiser is entitled not to deliver the prize to the Participant before handover or dispatch, to block the tickets concerned and to refuse the Participant access to the tournament site without compensation or to expel him/her from the tournament site and to impose an appropriate contractual penalty of up to EUR 2,000.00 on the Participant.


10 Violation of the conditions of participation

In the event of a breach or reasonable suspicion of a breach of the conditions of participation by the participant, the organiser is entitled to exclude the respective participant with immediate effect. In such a case, the organiser is entitled to disallow the prize or, if necessary, demand its return.


11 Premature termination of the competition

The organiser reserves the right to cancel or terminate the competition at any time for good cause without prior notice and without giving reasons. Good cause shall be deemed to exist in particular if, for technical or legal reasons, the proper organisation of the competition can no longer be guaranteed. Claims for damages are excluded in this case.


12 Liability

The organiser is only liable for damages incurred by the winner due to material defects or defects of title in the event of malice, intent or gross negligence, otherwise liability for material defects or defects of title is excluded, unless the breach concerns an obligation that is essential for achieving the purpose of the contract (cardinal obligation). In this case, the organiser shall be liable for the foreseeable, typically occurring damage. The organiser is liable without limitation for culpably caused damage to life, body or health.


13  Tournament rules

The participant will be sent the organiser’s tournament rules when the prize is sent. The participant recognises these rules as binding and undertakes to comply with the relevant regulations.


14 Amendments and changes

In the event of a change in market conditions or the legal situation or supreme court rulings, the organiser is entitled to amend or change these conditions of participation, provided that the change is reasonable for the participant, taking into account the interests of the organiser. The participant will be notified of all changes. The additions or amendments shall be deemed approved if the participant has not objected to them in writing or online in the specified manner (e.g. by e-mail) within a period of four weeks after receipt of the amendments or additions, provided that the organiser has expressly referred to this fiction of approval in the notification.


15 Choice of law, legal process

German law shall apply. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) is excluded. Recourse to the courts is excluded. The place of jurisdiction is, as far as permissible, Aachen.


16 Final clause

Should individual clauses of these conditions of participation be invalid in whole or in part, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining clauses or the remaining parts of such clauses. In the event that a provision is invalid, the parties shall negotiate in good faith to replace it with a provision that comes closest to the economic purpose of the invalid provision. The same applies to a loophole in these conditions of participation.
