If the winners do not contact the Quality Association by the next day of the door at the latest, the prize will be forfeited. The same applies in the event that the winners provide the Quality Association with incorrect contact details and it is therefore not possible to send the prize. 


10. Reservation clause

The Quality Association reserves the right to modify, interrupt or terminate the competition at any time without prior notice and without stating reasons. However, the Quality Association will only make use of this option if, for reasons of force majeure, for technical reasons (e.g. viruses in the computer system, manipulation or errors in the hardware and/or software) or for legal reasons, it is not possible to guarantee that the game will be carried out properly.
