Participants may only take part in the sweepstakes by accepting these Terms of participation.

Hetzner Online GmbH reserves the right to exclude participants from the sweepstakes who violate these Terms of participation. Participants who make use of unauthorized aids or who otherwise attempt to gain an unfair advantage through manipulating the sweepstakes will be excluded from participation. Hetzner Online GmbH reserves the right to subsequently revoke or recall prizes from participants who violate these Terms of participation, or from participants who provide incomplete and/or incorrect information about themselves.

Only natural persons of full age are eligible to participate. Hetzner Online GmbH employees and their relatives are prohibited from participating in the sweepstakes. Participation in the sweepstakes is free of charge. There is no obligation to order a Hetzner Online GmbH product or to subscribe to the Hetzner Online customer newsletter.

Participation in the sweepstakes is contingent upon the correct completion of the participation form in advance. The sweepstakes ends on 15 July 2018 at 11:59 PM Central European Time. A chance drawing will then determine the winners. In addition to the grand prize winner, 20 other participants will each receive a credit for €20.18 on their Cloud Console account. Winners can use this credit for up to one year to redeem Hetzner Cloud products. Winners will receive a notification email, which will be sent to the email address that they provide on the participation form. Participants are responsible for providing their correct email address on said participation form. Hetzner Online GmbH will announce the winners without a guarantee to their accuracy. The prizes are not transferable to third parties, and participants may not exchange prizes for a cash equivalent.

Hetzner Online GmbH reserves the right to cancel or end the sweepstakes at any time without prior notice or cause. This applies in particular if Hetzner Online cannot guarantee the proper execution of the sweepstakes for technical or legal reasons. In such a case, the participants are not entitled to any claims whatsoever. Participants are excluded from seeking legal recourse. The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply exclusively. The General terms and conditions of Hetzner Online GmbH apply.

Should individual provisions of these Terms of participation be or become invalid, this shall not affect the legal validity of the remaining provisions. They shall be replaced by an appropriate provision which most closely corresponds to the purpose of the invalid provision.
