Section 4 Liability
The participant agrees to indemnify Melitta against all third-party claims based on the infringement of third-party rights insofar as the participant is responsible for such.

Melitta reserves the right to exclude participants from the competition who have provided false information, infringed the conditions of participation, or have manipulated or facilitated manipulation of the competition. Participation via competition associations or automated services is not permitted.
Section 6 Dispute resolution procedure
The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution (ODR) that can be accessed: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home2.show&lng=EN. We are not obliged and are principally unwilling to participate in any dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
Section 7 Facebook promotion
The competition has no connection with Facebook and is not sponsored, supported, or organised by Facebook in any way.
Section 8 Data protection
The controller within the meaning of the GDPR is familiar to the competition event organiser.
The personal data collected within the scope of the competition (participant data) are processed for the purposes required in connection with this competition:
- implementation of the competition,
- notification of winners,
- prize presentation and
- publication of winners.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data for the aforestated purposes and performance of obligations is the contract concluded between the event organiser and the participant in accordance with Art. 6 (1) b GDPR.
Ensuring provision of the aforestated purposes and, consequently, participation in the competition is not possible without the processing of participant data. As a principle, participant data will not be disclosed to third parties, save for where the event organiser effects recourse to service providers for the aforestated purposes.
Participant data will be erased following completion of the competition, provided a longer period of storage is not required on the basis of a statutory retention period (e.g. retention periods for winners under tax or commercial law). In any such case, participant data will only first be erased following expiry of the retention period in question.

Insofar as the requirements as detailed in the commensurate provisions have been met, each participant (data subject) is specifically afforded the following rights in accordance with Art. 13 et seq. GDPR:
- The right of access without charge to the stored personal data pertaining to the individual and to rectification, blocking or erasure of this data.
- The right to data portability. To the extent that the controller processes the personal data using an automated procedure on the basis of consent or for the fulfilment of a contract, the data subject may receive the personal data in a commonly used, machine-readable format. Insofar as the data subject requests that the data be directly transferred to another controller, this shall occur solely where technically feasible.
- Right to withdraw consent granted. Insofar as the controller processes the data subject's personal data on the basis of consent, this consent may be withdrawn in writing at any time with future effect. The lawfulness of data processing procedures up to the time of withdrawal shall remain without prejudice from the withdrawal.
- The right to object to data processing. The controller will no longer process the data subject's personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or where processing serves to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
- Right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority. Insofar as the data subject considers that the processing of their personal data by the controller is contrary to applicable law, the data subject in question may lodge a respective complaint with any data protection supervisory authority.
Section 9 Legal remedy
Recourse to legal action is excluded.
