By participating, the participant confirms that they are fully entitled to the rights to the posted text, image, audio and/or video, or that they are permitted to post for the competition. If third-party rights exist, the participant confirms that they have been granted all rights to participate in this competition. The use of third-party texts, images, audio and/or videos from the Internet is therefore not permitted without the consent of the rights holder. If one or more people are mentioned or clearly depicted in the text, image, audio and/or video, the persons concerned and, in the case of minors, their legal guardians must agree that the contribution may be reproduced, edited, redesigned, distributed, sent or made publicly accessible for editorial, advertising purposes and/or as contributions on the SOMMERLINE social media channels.

By participating, the participant confirms that they have the corresponding declarations of consent and that they can also provide them in writing if necessary. The same also applies in the event that another person has made text, image, audio and/or video; even then his consent must be present. The same applies if the person thanked is mentioned or tagged in the post; even then his consent must be present. In this respect, the legal responsibility lies exclusively with the participant.
If, contrary to the above confirmations by the participant, rights of third parties are violated by the publication of posts, texts, images, audios and/or videos on the website www.sommerline.de and/or social media channels (www.facebook.com/sommerline.de / www.instagram.com/sommerline.de / www.linkedin.com/company/sommerline-de / www.pinterest.de/Sommerline_de / firstname.lastname@example.org / www.twitter.com/Sommer line_de / www.yo utube.com/channel/UCS2ZtqHhaNAYeoSWSdliDEA) are injured, the participant indemnifies SOMMERLINE from any costs, in particular compensation payments to the injured party.
SOMMERLINE reserves the right to have the granting of rights expressly confirmed in writing by the participant before publication.

Participants who provide incorrect or incomplete information, or who violate the conditions of participation or who try to influence the competition through manipulation (of any kind) are excluded from participation. SOMMERLINE is also entitled to exclude participants who have used third-party texts, images, audio and/or videos without the consent of the rights holder from participating in the competition. In the event of exclusion from the competition, prizes can be revoked and reclaimed even after the end of the competition. Further reasons for exclusion are regulated in clauses 2, 4 and 6.
11. Severability Clause
Should a provision of these Conditions of Participation be or become invalid in whole or in part, this shall not affect the validity of the rest of these Conditions of Participation. Instead of the invalid provision, the legally permissible provision that comes closest to the economic sense and purpose expressed in the invalid provision shall apply. The same applies in the event of a loophole in these Conditions of Participation.
Participation is associated with an indication of personal (personal) data (surname, first name) through the visible user name of the participant. When recording and processing personal data, SOMMERLINE is subject to the data protection laws of Germany. The personal data collected for the competition will be deleted within 60 days after the winners have been determined, provided there are no statutory storage requirements. The participant also has rights to information (Art. 15 GDPR), correction (Art. 16 GDPR), deletion (Art. 17 GDPR), restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR) and data portability (Art. 20 GDPR) vis-à-vis SOMMERLINE under the respective legal requirements.
After the prize has been announced, the winner and whom the winner has thanked will be asked for further personal data, such as the address, as part of the prize notification (Article 7 GDPR). The collection and processing of personal data is used exclusively to carry out the competition and to send the prize. The winner and thanked person (whom the winner thanked) assure that the personal information they provided, in particular their first name, surname, address and e-mail address, is true and correct.
In the event of a win, the winner agrees to the publication of their name and contribution on the social media channels used by SOMMERLINE (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, TikTok, Twitter, Youtube) and on the SOMMERLINE website. The same applies if the thanked person (whom the winner thanked) is mentioned or tagged in the post. This includes the announcement of the winner on the SOMMERLINE website and its social media accounts/pages.
The participant can obtain information about his data stored by SOMMERLINE at any time, object to the use of his data and request its deletion. A simple letter to SOMMERLINE UG (limited liability), Regensburger Str. 32, 93161 Sinzing, or an e-mail to email@example.com with the subject "Contest revoked" is sufficient for this. In addition to the name, the revocation must also contain the specific social media channel and the day of the win. However, the revocation leads to the exclusion from further participation in the competition (Art. 6 Para. 1a DSGVO). After revocation of the consent, the collected and stored personal data of the participant will be deleted immediately.
Further regulations on the handling of personal data can be found in the data protection declaration at https://sommerline.de/pages/datenschutzerklaerung .
SOMMERLINE assumes no responsibility for data loss, particularly in the course of data transmission, lost, damaged or late submissions that can be attributed to network, hardware or software problems, and other technical defects. Any warranty claims by the winners / those thanked are excluded.
14. Cash, Transfer
A cash payment of the prize is not possible. Any entitlements to prizes are non-transferrable.
15. Governing Law
The competition is exclusively subject to the law of the Federal Republic of Germany. The legal process is excluded.
16. Consumer Arbitration
We hereby inform you that SOMMERLINE does not participate in dispute settlement procedures of a consumer arbitration board and is not obliged to do so.
For reasons of better readability, only the generic masculine is used in these conditions of participation. So when we talk about participants, winners, etc., it encompasses male, female, and diverse gender identities with equal importance and respect.
