Article 6 – Practical organisation of the Competition

Article 6.1 – Functioning of the Competition

Each 10kg of O-Tentic purchased contains one (1) sticker on pack. The sticker includes a unique code. Taking part in the Competition can only be done online, via the website www.playandwin-with-o-tentic.com. Participants gain access to the online participation form by filling in the unique code on the welcome page. Next, the Participants must answer the Competition question correctly. For their entry to be valid, Participants must also correctly and completely fill in the name of their company, e-mail address, phone number, shipping address for potential prize and some business related questions. Participants are responsible for filling in their details correctly. Participants must also confirm that they accept these rules, which can be freely consulted online on the Competition website. Participants may enter the Competition several times, provided they have multiple stickers with a unique code. However, a unique code can only be used once.

Article 6.2 - Communications concerning the Competition are only by electronic means

Participation in the Competition is exclusively online. It is essential that the registered e-mail addresses are active, i.e. that they are actually used by the Participants so that they can be contacted by the Organiser. The Organiser may in no case be held responsible should these communications fail to arrive in the Participants' mailboxes for the reason that the e-mail addresses are no longer active, the messages of the Organiser are deemed unwanted or any other technical reason concerning the Participants' mailboxes and/or their internet connections, that is unrelated to the Organiser.

Article 6.3 - Designation of the winner

The Participant who submitted its company data, answered the business related questions, is the holder of a unique code that was entered as specific interval and who answered the Competition question correctly, wins the prize as shown on the Competition page. Which prize a Participant wins is determined by the order  of submission of the completed Competition form. There will be 653 winners worldwide.

Article 7 - Award of the prizes

Winners will be notified via e-mail and via the Competition website. This e-mail will only be sent to the registered e-mail address as detailed on the online Competition entry form. This e-mail will inform the winner of the arrangements for receiving the prize. All prizes are sent to the winners by post to the registered addresses as detailed on the online Competition entry form. The Organiser will not send any communication to the losers.

Article 8 - Personal details

The agency will, on a subcontracting basis for the Organiser, handle the (personal) data communicated by the Participants further to them taking part in the Competition. The latter will be solely responsible.

In accordance with the provisions of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, the Act of 8 December 1992 on the protection of privacy and the provisions of the Act of 11 March 2003 on certain legal aspects of information society services, the Participants will be informed that their personal data will be stored and kept in the Administrator's predetermined database. 

Any Participant may, free of charge and by means of a simple written request addressed to Puratos Belux, Industrialaan 25, Zone Maalbeek, 1702 Groot-Bijgaarden, or by e-mail to bledger@puratos.com , obtain access to their personal data and, where appropriate, obtain the correction and/or deletion of incorrect, incomplete and/or irrelevant data. 

The data collected will also be used to enter into direct contact with the Participants in order to ensure the smooth running of the Competition and the efficient awarding of the prize within the allotted time frame. The data collected can then be used to conduct statistical studies.

Moreover, Participants in the Competition expressly transfer to the Organiser the right to use their name for promotional purposes and, if the occasion arises, also for photographs taken during the prize-giving ceremony, without this conferring on them any right to payment, or any other right or benefit apart from the prize awarded.

Article 9 - Responsibility

The Organiser cannot be held responsible for the consequences of a change of address by the Participant after their registration on the Competition website. The Organiser may not under any circumstances be held responsible for any errors in the data supplied by the Participants, such as an incorrect or unknown address or e-mail address.

The Organiser, its staff or third parties used by the Organiser in the context of the Competition, cannot under any circumstances be held responsible, except in the case of fraudulent intent, for any damage, whether direct or indirect, physical or mental, caused by participation in the Competition to persons, Participants or their equipment (hardware and software), or to the winners, in particular following their participation in the Competition or during the prize-giving ceremony. This waiver of responsibility also applies to technical failures and/or errors related to the equipment and software used, which would make participation in the Competition temporarily impossible or very difficult, or even interrupt it. The Organiser cannot, therefore, be held responsible for any risks related to the use of the Internet or e-mail and, in particular, shall not be held responsible for any damage suffered by participants' electronic devices during their participation in this Competition.

The Organiser cannot be held responsible for delays or delivery errors of the prizes. In the event of permanent damage by the supplier, for example in the event of bankruptcy, the Organiser cannot be expected to take responsibility for the supply, nor to provide compensation to the winner.

Since communication is exclusively electronic, it is up to the Participants to take the necessary precautions in their mailbox settings so that messages from the Organiser are not refused and, if the case arises, to regularly check the "unwanted e-mail" ("spam" or any other similar denomination) folder. Some programs automatically file unsigned e-mails in this folder. The Organiser may not, under any circumstances, be held responsible if, after the e-mail has been sent, it does not reach its destination for any reason that is independent of the Organiser.

Article 10 – General

Article 10.1 - Acceptance of these rules

Participation in the Competition implies unconditional acceptance of the rules, and no challenge with respect to these rules shall be considered, including any decision by the Organiser.
 
Article 10.2 - Changes

The Organiser reserves the right to suspend, cancel or modify this Competition without giving any compensation or interest to the Participants or any other person, without notice, in case of force majeure or any other event beyond its control, including but not limited to internet malfunction, any other problem linked to communication networks, computers, our suppliers' internet and their servers. Any unforeseen hypothesis within the present rules will be dealt with by the Organiser, who will take a sovereign decision that is binding on the parties.

Article 10.3 - Legal competence

These Competition rules are governed by Belgian law. In case of persistent disagreement about the application and/or interpretation of these rules, and in the absence of an amicable settlement, any dispute shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the Brussels district. The Organiser reserves the right to prosecute and exclude from the Competition any person who may have attempted to commit fraud. 

Article 10.4 - Validity 

If any or all of the provisions of the present rules are held to be invalid, the other provisions or parts thereof shall not be affected and shall continue to apply. The clause that might be null and void in its formulation shall be interpreted, as far as possible, in a manner that corresponds as closely as possible to the parties' initial intentions, so that it can be replaced by a valid clause, the result of which corresponds as closely as possible to the result initially sought by the parties through the clause affected by nullity.

Article 10.5 – Complaints 

Any complaint relating to this Competition must be notified to the Organiser by registered post with acknowledgement of receipt within ten days of the occurrence of the event giving rise to the complaint. Once this period has expired, the complaint will automatically and ipso iure be considered null and void and will, furthermore, be time-barred.
