If a participant does not have the capacity to enter into legal agreements, they will require the consent of their legal representative.


Persons and employees involved in the design and organization of the advent calendar shall not be eligible to take part in the advent calendar, nor shall their family members. In addition, the operator reserves the right, at their own discretion, to exclude persons from participating if there are legitimate reasons to do so, for example:

Prize, notification of the win and delivery of the prize

In integrated competitions, a more detailed description of the prizes on offer will be shown directly, on the same day as the relevant competition, via the competition window.

The prize winners shall be determined through a draw based on the principle of chance, in which all participants will be involved. If the competition is linked to a task, only those participants who have successfully completed the task will be considered in the draw.


The winner of the draw will be promptly informed of the win via a separate email.


The prize can only be delivered to the winner. It is not possible to exchange the prize or to have it paid out in cash.


The operator shall bear any costs that may be incurred when shipping the prize. The winner shall bear any additional costs associated with claiming the prize. The winner shall bear the responsibility for any applicable tax applying to the prize.


If the winner does not respond within a three-week period, the prize may be given to another participant instead.



Termination of the advent calendar

The organizer expressly reserves the right to terminate the online advent calendar, along with integrated actions, at any time without giving any reason or prior notice. This applies, in particular, to any reasons that would disrupt or prevent the scheduled operation of the advent calendar.



Data protection
