Official Rules

1. Length of Contest
The “Bundesliga Total!” contest runs from October 3rd 2018 to May 20th 2019.

2. Eligibility
High school and middle school students enrolled in a German program in the United States are eligible to participate. Parental consent is required for minors to participate in the contest. These students form teams at their respective schools. The number of team members is unlimited. A school can sign up only one team.
Persons and teams that
(i) provide false information regarding their personal data or
(ii) make unlawful statements or statements contradicting the competition rules or
(iii) manipulate or otherwise misuse electronic devices created for the competition
are excluded from eligibility to participate.

3. How to Enter
Teams sign up by sending an e-mail to stepintogerman@sanfrancisco.goethe.org

4. Selection of Winners
The participating teams will be divided into three regions: West, Central and East. From October 2018 through February 2019 the teams will answer questions based on the “Match of the Month” video and predict the scores of Bundesliga matches. The teams will receive points for all correct answers. After each round, the standings will be posted on the Step into German website.

Two participants from each of the ten teams with the highest point total qualify to attend the “Bundesliga Festival” of their region (West: San Francisco, Central: Chicago, East: Washington D.C.). Should two or more teams end up with the same point total a tie-breaker (TBA) will be used (details will be released on January 20th, 2019). The teams will receive financial support for their travel expenses to the “Bundesliga Festivals” which will take place on a weekend in March 2019.

At the “Bundesliga Festivals” the two members of the qualified teams will compete in various Bundesliga-related activities. The winning team of each “Bundesliga Festival” will be the grand prize winners.

5. Prizes
All teams participating at a “Bundesliga Festival” will receive Bundesliga team jerseys and other soccer-related prizes.
The winners of the “Bundesliga Festival” competitions will win a trip to Germany where they will attend a Bundesliga match in Munich, Dortmund or Gelsenkirchen in April 2019. The winners travel at their own risk.

6. Liability
The Goethe-Institut will not assume any liability of any kind for the loss or incompleteness of the data transmitted by the participant, unless the loss or incompleteness of the data is a result of intentional or grossly negligent behavior on the part of the Goethe-Institut or its staff. This will also apply to the publication of information by third parties on account of technical errors in the transmission of data and/or unauthorized access.

If the Goethe-Institut is liable to pay damages, the following disclaimers of liability and limitations of liability are applicable, without prejudice to other conditions of entitlement.

The Goethe-Institut assumes unlimited liability for damages arising from willful intent or gross negligence.

In addition, the Goethe-Institut assumes liability for slightly negligent breaches of essential contractual duty, the violation of which jeopardizes the fulfilment of the purpose of the contract, or for breaches of contractual duty, the fulfilment of which allows the proper execution of the contest and on the observation of which the contracting party can regularly rely. In this case however the Goethe-Institut liability is limited to the compensation of foreseeable, typically occurring damages. The Goethe-Institut assumes no liability for the slightly negligent breach of duties other than those mentioned above.

The aforementioned limitations of liability are not applicable in the case of injury to life, limb or health, after the provision of a guarantee of product quality and if an injury arises from malicious concealment of a product defect. The Goethe-Institut’s liability as determined by product liability law remains unaffected.

Insofar as the liability of the Goethe-Institut is ruled out or limited, this also applies to the personal liability of employees, representatives or vicarious agents of the Goethe-Institut.

7. Data Protection
The Goethe-Institut complies with statutory data protection regulations. Participants agree to the storage, processing, and sharing by the Goethe-Institut of the data they supply in the context of participating in the competition. Data will not be disclosed to third parties for other purposes. Participants are free at any time to retrieve information concerning which of their data the Goethe-Institut has stored.

8. Withdrawal
Participants may at any time revoke their consent to such data being stored and consequently withdraw their participation in the competition. The relevant address for such purposes is:

Goethe-Institut San Francisco, 530 Bush Street, San Francisco, CA
94108-3623, Attn: „Bundesliga Total!“.

By participating, participants expressly agree to these Official Rules. Participation in the competition is not dependent on the purchase of goods or utilization of services.

9. Premature termination of competition
The Goethe-Institut would like to point out that the availability and functioning of the contest cannot be guaranteed. The contest can be terminated or removed due to external circumstances without giving rise to claims by the participants against the Goethe-Institut. This applies for organizational or technical reasons (e.g. viruses on the computer system, manipulation or errors in the hardware and/or software) or rule changes etc.

The Goethe-Institut is entitled to terminate the competition prematurely at any time (during the competition period) without notification and without stating a reason.

10. Final provisions
Recourse to legal action regarding the execution of the contest and its results is excluded.

The realization of the competition and the privity of contract between the involved persons comply exclusively with the law of the Federal Republic of Germany, independently from the geographical location of participants in the contest. Towards consumers, this choice of law only applies insofar, as they are not dispossessed of the protection which is being granted towards them by the mandatory consumer protection rules that are in effect where the consumer has her/his main residence.

In the event that any of these individual provisions are or become invalid or unenforceable, the validity of the other provisions remains unaffected.
