Terms and Conditions of Participation

The prize competition shall begin on 09.09.2020; the participation deadline is 20.09.2020.

Participation in the prize competition is only possible on the terms and conditions set out here. By participating in the prize competition, the participant expressly recognises these Terms and Conditions of Participation. The organiser reserves the right to alter, adapt or discontinue the prize competition at any time without prior notice and without giving reasons. Persons aged 18 or over at the time of participation shall be eligible to participate. Excluded from participation are USM employees and all employees of third-party companies involved in the implementation of this prize competition, e.g. USM's sales partners.

Participation in the prize competition shall be brought about by uploading the configurator AR photograph in the participant's Facebook or Instagram feed, including the links #USMperfectmatch and @usmmodularfurniture. The five winning photographs shall be determined by an independent 5-person jury from amongst all uploaded photographs with the aforementioned links. By 28.09.2020, the winners shall be notified of their prize by private message in Facebook and/or Instagram. Prizes that cannot be sent within, at the latest, six months of notification due to a lack of information or non-contactability of the winner shall be forfeited without substitution. No participant may participate in the prize competition more than once. Participation in the prize competition shall be conditional upon the uploading of the configurator AR photograph on a valid Facebook or Instagram account and upon the provision of truthful details by the participant. Fake profiles and incorrect details on the accounts may lead to exclusion from the prize competition.

The jury shall determine the winning photographs at its own free discretion from amongst all participants who have uploaded the configuration AR photograph, including the links #USMperfectmatch and @usmmodularfurniture, in their own Facebook or Instagram feed during the implementation period. The time of uploading in the feed shall be decisive for the timeliness of participation. USM shall not be liable for late or incomplete uploading and, in particular, may not be held responsible for technical disruptions, e.g. for outages of the telephone network or for network, electronics or computer failure.

We shall give away five USM furniture pieces in total. The winner shall receive the respective furniture piece created in the 3D configurator, the maximum value being 5,000 € in each case. The prize shall not be transferable to third parties. A payout shall not be possible.

The organiser shall not be liable, in any form, for indirect or direct loss ensuing from participation in the prize competition or from non-accessibility of the Internet server, unless such loss is due to gross negligence or wilful misconduct attributable to the organiser. By participating, the participant represents and warrants that his photograph does not infringe third-party rights or contravene applicable laws.

In the course of the prize competition, USM U. Schärer Söhne AG shall, in compliance with the principle of proportionality and data minimisation, only collect and process the data needed for carrying out the prize competition, for notifying the winners and, where applicable, for delivering the prize.
For determining the prizes, contact shall be made by private message in Facebook and/or Instagram. To enable the winner to take receipt of the prize, we shall process personal data such as name, address and contact details based on the participant's consent.
The participant shall be free to revoke at any time his consent to participation in the prize competition by sending a corresponding notification to the email address: [email protected] By doing so, the participant shall, at the same time, withdraw from participation in the prize competition. The participants acknowledge that any revocation shall apply only to the future; i.e. the lawfulness of the data processing that has taken place shall remain unaffected hereby.

Recourse to courts of law is ruled out.

Participants who breach these Terms and Conditions of Participation or attempt to manipulate the vote may be excluded from participation in the prize competition. If the prerequisites for exclusion apply, prizes may be subsequently revoked, or prizes already delivered may be claimed back. USM shall be entitled to discontinue or suspend the prize competition if: manipulations are discovered, or it is for any other reason no longer ensured that the prize competition will be properly carried out, in particular in the event of hardware or software failure, programme bugs, computer viruses, unauthorised tampering by third parties or mechanical, technical or legal problems. If any of these Terms and Conditions of Participation is or becomes invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining Terms and Conditions of Participation.
