    The OGame Team

    "Of course it is happening inside your head, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"


    The following conditions govern the course of the ‘OGame Anniversary Servers Contest’ (hereafter ‘contest’) as organised by Gameforge 4D GmbH, Albert-Nestler-Strasse 8, 76131 Karlsruhe, Germany (hereafter ‘Gameforge’).

    1. Eligibility, Participants and Participation

    (1) Participation in the contest is free and is not bound to a fee-based service. All users of full age who, in accordance with the General Terms and Conditions, are entitled to register a user account for Gameforge services or to use an existing Gameforge account to register an OGame account are eligible to participate.

    (2) A ‘participant’ is any person entitled to participate as per (1) who participates as described in (3) between 12th November 2019 and 26th November 2019, 11:00 AM CEST (‘participation period’).

    (3) The object of participation is the registration of an OGame account to at least one of the new OGame servers (‘contest account’), that will open on 12th November 2019 for the purpose of running the contests (‘contest server’), as well as the active participation in the respective contest server within the participation period.

    2. Winners and Prizes

    (1) Participants who, by the end of the participation period, have reached one of the top 3 spots on the high score list of the respective contest servers due to the number of points they’ve scored will be ‘national winners’.

    (2) Those 20 participants who, by the end of the participation period, have scored the most points according to the high score lists of all contest servers will be ‘international winners’.

    (3) In addition to the national winners and the international winners, Gameforge will also randomly select three ‘random winners’ per contest server from all participants.

    (4) A participant may be national winner and international winner at the same time, but not a multiple national winner, international winner or random winner.

    (5) Gameforge will announce the national winners, international winners and random winners from 26th November 2019 on their internet pages (including the forum) as well as the presences maintained by Gameforge on the social networks Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with the respective players’ usernames (‘announcement’) and will inform the winners via email (‘notification’).

    (6) The winners will receive prizes as stated in the contest announcement as well as the following rules:

    a) Material prizes for the international winners will be dispatched by a delivery service provider (‘service provider’) commissioned by Gameforge from 2nd December 2019 and require a valid postal address (‘address’). Gameforge will ask the winners in the notification to provide their address in reply by 28th November 2019, at the latest (‘response’). Responses that Gameforge receives late or does not receive at all will lead to loss of entitlement to the respective prize. The prizes are deemed to have been awarded to the international winners by Gameforge with the handover of the prizes to the service provider. If a material prize cannot be delivered as the result of an erroneous address supplied by the international winner, this will be at the expense of the affected international winner. Gameforge will not be liable for any further delivery attempt.

    b) Where the prizes comprise digital content, these shall be delivered to the winners with the notification, sent to the email address used for the registration for the contest account, or added to the contest account or the OGame account provided by the winner.

    c) A cash payment and/or payment of the prize in physical goods as well as an exchange and/or transfer of the respective prizes to third parties are all excluded.

    d) The judges’ decision is final with regard to determining the winners.

    3. Privacy

    (1) Gameforge will collect the personal data provided by the participants (including user data for the Gameforge account and event account, i.e. the associated account name, email address, and the address as provided by international winners), in accordance with data protection requirements and process this exclusively for the purposes of running the contest. This includes checking eligibility for participation and adherence to the rules (as per 5(2)), as well as, where applicable, the delivery of the prizes and provision of the address to the service provider, the notification and the presentation.

    (2) Further information on Gameforge’s handling of personal data can be found in the Privacy Policy (see in particular point 3.9 regarding the holding of contests and the significant legal basis for processing of this data, as well as point 6 on the rights of the data subject).

    4. Liability

    Regardless of legal grounds, Gameforge, its committees, employees and agents are liable exclusively for wilful intent and gross negligence. However with slight negligence they are only liable in cases where contractual obligations are infringed upon and are limited to foreseeable damages, provided this is not contrary to the requirements of any applicable law. The previously stated limitations do not apply for the loss of life, personal injury or damage to health.

    5. Final Clauses

    (1) The participant agrees to these Terms and Conditions by using a contest account.

    (2) In addition to these Terms and Conditions, the Standard Terms and Conditions of Use also apply (together the ‘rules’).

    (3) Should a participant infringe upon the rules during the execution of the contests, or such an infringement be proven thereafter, Gameforge may revoke their eligibility to participate.

    (4) Gameforge reserves the right to end the contest before the end of the participation period, should an important reason arise. An important reason would in particular be if the proper execution of the contest cannot be guaranteed for technical or legal reasons.

    (5) The contractual relationship is governed by German law to the exclusion of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the referral regulations of international private law. If the participant has as his usual domicile a location in another country within the European Union during the extent of the contest, the validity of the strictly applicable legal regulations of the country in question shall remain unaffected by the choice of law made in the prior sentence.

    (6) In the event that any individual provision of these conditions becomes ineffective, the remaining provisions shall remain effective and binding. The unenforceable provision shall be substituted for the relevant statutory provision.
