These terms of participation are accepted when a person participates in each respective prize competition.

§ 3 Participation
In order to participate in the prize competition, participants are required to register once only and free of charge on www.gazprom-football.com. Only one account per person may be opened. In this respect, we refer you to our terms and conditions of use that apply to this which can be downloaded at www.gazprom-football.com/en/nutzungsbedingungen.htm
You can only participate in the prize competition under your own name. By registering, the participant confirms that the information provided is true, up-to-date and complete and that the general terms and conditions of use and the data protection provisions have been accepted. The registration (of the account) must be confirmed by the participant by email by clicking on the verification link. If email confirmations are undeliverable, the registration and therefore participation in the prize competition are invalid. GAZPROM is not liable for email confirmations that do not arrive, are erroneously sent, are not deliverable or cannot be delivered due to other reasons.
The ‘Ticketmania’ ticket prize competition is free to enter and optional. Furthermore, participation is not dependent on the purchase of goods and services or on ordering a newsletter. Anyone over the age of 18 at the beginning of each respective prize competition round is eligible to participate. Each participant is only permitted to take part in each ‘Ticketmania’ prize competition round once. Participation via a prize competition service is excluded. Only registrations that are effected autonomously are permitted. Natural persons only are permitted to register to take part in the prize competition.
Employees of GAZPROM Germania and of the GAZPROM group of companies and people who are entrusted with running the competition and their relatives are excluded from taking part.

§ 4 Prizes and notifications of prizes
Entry tickets (prize) to various UEFA Champions League matches are entered into a prize draw on selected UEFA Champions League match days within the scope of the ‘Ticketmania’ prize competition. The number of entry tickets that are available is updated on a daily basis and shown on the GAZPROM ticket barometer. The number of entry tickets can vary from one prize competition round to the next. 1 x2 entry tickets can be won per participant, per prize competition round. The entry tickets do not entitle prize winners to access a hospitality area.
The prize is awarded to participants who could answer the question that was asked correctly before the competition closing deadline. If a number of correct entries are submitted, the winner is decided via a draw. The draw is conducted privately.
It is not possible to exchange the prize for a cash award, or to roll over, change or exchange the prizes. Prize winners are not permitted to resell or auction the prize or parts of the prize. Prize winnings are not transferable. The winner must bear the costs of travelling to and from the match venue and other related costs. GAZPROM Germania does not accept liability for journeys to and from each of the match venues.
Winners of the ‘Ticketmania’ ticket prize competition are notified by email. GAZPROM Germania does not accept liability if the email notifying the winner is undeliverable.
The entry tickets are sent to the address that the winner provided in his or her account details on registering or at the point he or she took part in the competition. The entry tickets are delivered by a courier service. Dispatching the tickets and other processes that relate to the prize win are carried out by the agency akzio! GmbH that has been appointed by GAZPROM Germania to undertake these tasks. GAZPROM Germania alternatively reserves the right to leave the entry tickets at the stadium or to hand them over at the match venue. GAZPROM Germania does not accept liability for any incorrect or false information supplied and for the non-delivery of the prize that results from this. In this case, any entitlement to receive a prize will become null and void.
GAZPROM Germania does not accept liability if, for reasons that are not the responsibility of GAZPROM Germania, the game for which the tickets are awarded is not actually played or has to be rescheduled.
The following additional rules apply when attending a UEFA Champions League match in Italy:
- Before visiting the stadium, each winner must ensure that his or her name is written in permanent ink on his or her ticket. Winners receiving tickets for games that take place in Italy should note that due to national regulations additional information needs to be provided for the Italian authorities (first and surname, passport number, date of birth, place of birth, nationality).
- The winners agree to allow GAZPROM Germania to contact them by telephone or email to record this information before the prize is sent. If the winner and his or her respective companion do not make this information available to GAZPROM Germania in good time, entitlement to the prize tickets shall become null and void.
§ 5 Exclusions
Any infringements of these terms of participation entitle GAZPROM Germania to exclude the participant in question from the prize competition. This applies particularly if the participant has provided false information when registering or has set up multiple accounts.
In the case of a participant who has been excluded and who has already been awarded a prize from the draw, the prize can still be subsequently disallowed, especially if the winner has sold his or her ticket.
§ 6 Early termination and amendments
GAZPROM Germania reserves the right to terminate the prize competition early at any time and also without advance notice either fully or in part, or to amend the competition at any point in the process if it is not possible for technical (e.g. computer viruses, the manipulation of or errors in software/hardware) or legal reasons to guarantee that the prize competition can be conducted in a proper manner.
§ 7 Data protection information
With respect to participation in the prize draw, participants’ personal data that is collected when they register is processed in order to identify and notify individual winners. You are therefore advised to refer to GAZPROM Germania’s data protection policy which can be downloaded online at www.gazprom-football.com/en/datenschutz.htm.
The winners are announced by GAZPROM Germania via its own company communication channels. For this purpose, winners therefore agree that GAZPROM Germania can publish
-their names and
-their place of birth
§ 8 Final provisions
If the terms of participation contain invalid terms, the validity of the remaining terms is unaffected. The parties are obliged to replace an invalid term with a valid term which comes the closest to representing the aim of the contract, taking due account of the commercial interests of both parties. The same process should apply if a legal loophole arises during the execution of this contract which requires an amendment.
