Terms of participation for the "Thomas Nature Lover" Instagram photo competition with consent to the publication of submitted photos

The "Thomas Nature Lover" Instagram photo competition is organised by Rosenthal GmbH, Philip-Rosenthal-Platz 1, 95100 Selb, Germany (hereinafter referred to only as “Thomas").

Participation is free of charge. Participation and chances of winning do not depend on the purchase of a product. The contest begins on 9 September 2020 at 6 p.m. and ends at 12 p.m. midnight on 20 December 2020.

All natural persons who are at least 18 years of age and reside in the European Union are entitled to participate. You can accept the terms of participation and at the same time participate in the "Thomas Nature Lover" Instagram photo competition:

  • by posting a photo to Instagram (publicly accessible account)
  • that highlights Thomas porcelain in line with the "Nature Lover" theme
  • linking the brand @thomas_porzellan
  • and using the hashtag #thomasnaturelover or #thomasporzellan.

In order to participate, your consent is also required as follows:

Consent

By participating, I consent that Thomas may electronically process my photos that I submit using the hashtag #thomasnaturelover or #thomasporzellan to participate in the photo competition as part of an Instagram story during the contest (e.g. retouching or montages) and also publish them on the Thomas Porzellan Instagram page. I am aware that I will not receive payment for this publication. I can withdraw my consent at any time with effect for the future, for example by sending an e-mail to info@rosenthal.de. However, you will no longer be able to participate in the photo competition.

You grant Thomas the necessary rights of use, processing, publishing and exploitation in order to process and publish the submitted images in an Instagram story on the Thomas Porzellan Instagram page. You must ensure and confirm by participating that the images you upload do not infringe any third-party rights (e.g. personal rights, image rights, trademark rights or copyrights) and that they comply with the Instagram terms of use.

Contest associations or automated services (contest robots) are excluded from participation. Employees of Rosenthal GmbH and their family members are also excluded. The judges' decision is final. The laws of the Federal Republic of Germany apply. This choice of law only applies to consumers insofar as they are not thereby deprived of the protection afforded to them by the mandatory rules of the state in which they have their habitual residence.

Multiple posts will be assessed as a single entry. If posts violate the Instagram guidelines, German law and/or copyright laws, these will be excluded from the competition after these circumstances become known.

Among all participants, Thomas will award three influencer contracts for 2021.

Winners are given the option of concluding a Thomas influencer contract for 2021 with Thomas. As part of this influencer contract, the winners will receive products valued at €700 as a counterservice which will then be highlighted on the winner's publicly accessible Instagram profile as a Thomas influencer and brand ambassador.

There is no entitlement to cash payment or exchange of winnings. Thomas reserves the right to cancel or end the competition at any time without prior notice and without indicating reasons. This particularly applies if proper implementation cannot be guaranteed for technical or legal reasons. The judges' decision is final.

The winners will be chosen among all participants. The winners will be selected by a three-person jury supervised by employees of Rosenthal GmbH.

The winners will be informed by 15 January 2021 through a personal message on Instagram that they have won the Thomas Nature Lover Instagram photo competition. The winners of the Thomas Nature Instagram photo competition must declare their willingness to be Thomas influencers within a period of 2 business days after Thomas notifies the winners by sending a direct message to the Thomas Porzellan Instagram page, and also communicate the email or mailing address to which the influencer contract should be sent.

The winners of the "Thomas Nature Lover" Instagram photo competition will then each be presented on the Thomas Instagram channel including their name (this can also be just a first name or a pseudonym) and their Instagram channel. The winning picture and a photo of the winner may also be part of this presentation. The relevant posts in this regard will be created by the Thomas social media team along with the winners.
