Participation in the competition may require the entry of personal data, such as surname, first name, address, age and telephone number. All of this personal data will be treated by Golf House in accordance with the legal provisions (in particular data protection).
A winner will be notified by email or phone. If the notification is made by phone, Golf House will leave a message in case the winner cannot be reached personally, as far as technically possible. The winner must notify Golf House within a period of 7 days whether he/she accepts the prize. If the winner does not meet this deadline, Golf House is allowed to choose a new winner and give the prize to someone else. Compensation claims of the first drawn winner are excluded.
A claim to a prize arises exclusively upon receipt of a prize notification by Golf House or other persons authorized by Golf House. The participant is responsible for the correctness of the data provided. The personal details must be true, otherwise the participant will be excluded from the competition.
Golf House advises that no further confirmation of the winner is required by calling back a premium service, bulk service, shared cost service or similar value added numbers. Such prompts do not originate from Golf House; therefore, we strongly recommend that such prompts be ignored.
Golf House reserves the right to cancel or terminate a competition at any time without notice. Golf House will make use of this possibility in particular if, for technical or legal reasons, the proper execution of the game cannot be guaranteed. If such a termination was caused by the behavior of a participant, Golf House may demand compensation from this person for the damage incurred.
Golf House will not repay any costs incurred in connection with the prize. There is no entitlement to cash payment for non-cash prizes or to a subsequent change. The claim to a prize is not transferable.
Golf House will not be liable for any damages incurred by a participant as a result of accepting or using the prizes provided. The claim to a prize will be forfeited if the transmission of the prize cannot take place within six months after the first notification.
Winnings will not be paid out in cash. This also applies if the prize is no longer available in the presented version. The winner will then receive a replacement of equal value or a voucher from the cooperation partner worth the original prize. A voucher must be added, also vouchers are not paid out in cash. The claim to a prize or any replacement cannot be assigned.
b) Material prizes
The presented item as a prize in the competition is not necessarily identical to the won item. Rather, there may be deviations with regard to model, color or something like that. The prize sponsor may select an item equivalent to the item presented as the prize. Non-cash prizes (with the exception of a car) and prize vouchers will be delivered directly by the prize sponsor, a shipping company, package service or post to the given address by the winner.
In the event that delivery is made via a freight forwarder, the freight forwarder will contact the winner to arrange a delivery date. Delivery will usually be made on weekdays between 9:00 am and 6:00 pm. The winner must provide an alternative address in his/her immediate vicinity in addition to his/her address. The winner agrees that in his absence the prize will be delivered to this alternative address. If the shipping company does not find a person authorized to receive the prize either at the winner's address or at the alternative address, a message will be left. The winner shall bear the costs of a new delivery himself/herself.
In the case of travel prizes, processing shall take place exclusively in direct contact between the winner and the respective cooperation partner or a tour operator commissioned by the latter. If a travel date is not already specified in the competition itself, the cooperation partner or tour operator is solely responsible for setting the travel date. There is no entitlement to a specific travel date. If the trip is not carried out on the date or during the period specified by the prize sponsor or tour operator, there is no longer any entitlement to the prize.
Travel to and from the starting point of the trip (airport, train station, etc.) must be borne by the winner, unless otherwise stated in the competition or expressly agreed. The same applies to all costs incurred during the trip (minibar, phone number, etc.).

The participant also agrees that his/her data may be transmitted to the respective cooperation partner of the competition for the purpose of prize processing.
The participant is free at any time to withdraw the consent given to Golf House by written revocation. The revocation is to be sent to email@example.com.
