Here are the terms and conditions which apply to Lonely Planet's Quizfest Germany promotion. Please read them carefully, as they contain important information you should know.
This is a joint campaign for Lonely Planet India Pvt Ltd ("Lonely Planet") of 302, DLF City Court, Sikandarpur Gurgaon – 122002 and the German National Tourist Office, India. These conditions of entry include information about the prizes and how to enter the contest. By entering the promotion, these conditions of entry apply to your entry. These conditions of entry are governed by the laws of India.
This promotion is open only to legal residents of India over the age of 18. The laws in some places don't allow Lonely Planet to run this promotion, in which case the promotion and these conditions of entry are void in those places. Also, you can't enter this promotion if you (or your immediate families or housemates) are employed by Lonely Planet, or their subsidiaries and affiliated companies.
To enter, you will need to visit lonelyplanet.co.in and complete the online quiz consisting of 10 questions about Germany.
You don't have to buy anything to enter. You can enter between 12:00 pm IST on 11 th August 2017 and 11:59 pm IST on 15 th September 2017 (the promotional period). One entry will be permissible on one unique e-mail address. Your entry is received at the time Lonely Planet receives it. Incomplete and invalid entries will not be accepted. If your entry gets lost in cyberspace or doesn't arrive for any other reason, that's not Lonely Planet's fault.
Lonely Planet might have to extend the dates of the promotion but only if it's totally unavoidable (for example, if the competition entry page is unavailable for 24 hours or more) and we'll let you know if we do.
You warrant that:
Lonely Planet reserves the right to reject any entry which it deems (in its absolute discretion) contains objectionable or offensive content.
A photo which displays an identified or identifiable person may infringe on that person's right of privacy or may disclose that person's personal information. Avoid submitting images which depict people in private or vulnerable situations, however where your image does depict an identifiable person / people, you agree that you have obtained the permission of the person / people featured in your image prior to submitting it.
Rather than consulting tea leaves, the winner will be selected by a panel of 3 judges, who will review all the eligible entries and then decide on the best submission each week based on the creativity of the answer to the open ended question which is to be completed in 140 characters or less. One winner will be selected from the entries received each week during the promotional period. The weekly prize winner will be announced at the end of each week.
This unenviable task will happen in a small, dark room at 302, DLF City Court, Sikandarpur Gurgaon – 122002 (or at an undisclosed location otherwise determined as required by Lonely Planet). The judges' decision is final (so there!) and no correspondence will be entered into, even if you think that sucks. Lady luck has nothing to do with this promotion.
Lonely Planet reserves the right to disqualify any entrant who has engaged in unlawful or improper conduct that is designed to jeopardise the fair conduct of the promotion or is generally damaging to the reputation of Lonely Planet, or has otherwise breached these conditions of entry (as determined in Lonely Planet's sole discretion).
Lonely Planet can cancel or modify the promotion if there are compelling technical or administrative reasons which we cannot control. If that happens, Lonely Planet will select the winner(s) from all eligible entries received at that time.
We will select six winners who will each receive one retail shopping voucher(s) to the value of INR four x INR 3500 + two x INR 3000 retail shopping vouchers (total value of INR 20,000).
Prize is provided by German National Tourism Office India.
We shall announce the winner by posting their name(s) on social media within 2 days after selection. If you're riddled with curiosity, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (including the name of the promotion) within 3 months of the closing date of the promotion, and we’ll respond and tell you who won. Lonely Planet will do its best to find the winners.
We may ask you to provide proof of identify, residency and age, so that we are sure you are who you say you are, and are eligible to receive the prize. We'll decide whether the proof you provide is adequate (but generally speaking, a certified copy of your passport, PAN card or drivers' licence will be sufficient). If you can't provide, or refuse to provide, suitable proof, then unfortunately you will be disqualified, and we will choose another winner (subject to the direction of regulatory authorities).
If you win, you will be required to contact German National Tourism Office India directly to claim your prize. Lonely Planet is not responsible for any personal information that you provide to German National Tourism Office India.
You can't exchange the prize for cash, or ask us to give it to someone else (not that you'd want to!). We will use reasonable efforts to award the prize as described but if, due to unforeseen circumstances, we are unable to do that, we'll substitute it either for cash or another prize of comparable value, but we'll decide which. You'll be responsible for all taxes, insurance, transport and any other expenses, fees and costs connected with that prize that are not included in the prize description.
You are responsible for the use of the prize, including complying with any applicable terms and conditions of use and expiry dates.
Lonely Planet and the prize provider are not responsible for the use of the prize which results in:
You agree that all of your entry is your own work. On submission, your entry becomes the property of Lonely Planet. You give Lonely Planet a worldwide, irrevocable license to reproduce, publish, adapt, communicate and broadcast all or part of it in any form and media. You also consent to us editing, re- using, storing, reproducing and communicating your entry in any medium. Generally, we will attribute you as the author where possible, but in some circumstances, we may decide not to.
