Terms of Participation and Data Protection

You agree to the following terms of participation and data protection by participation in this giveaway. Please read the following terms carefully.


Terms of participation and data protection

This giveaway is promoted and organized solely by the Union Versicherungsdienst GmbH (“we”). This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by or associated with Facebook. As far as it concerns this giveaway, you irrevocably waive any claims against Facebook Inc.



The giveaway is open to residents of Germany aged 18 years or over except employees of Union Versicherungsdienst GmbH/other group companies (Ecclesia Gruppe) and their close relatives.

You participate in this giveaway by

a) commenting this post, including the code phrase “I study in” and

b) not deleting the comment until the winner of the giveaway is announced.

Deadline for entries is the 11th October 2019.



You (as participant) have the chance to win a Germany-starter-package including a travel guide, a German phrase book, a cup, a cup of Sauerkraut and a cup of beer cake. The package will be delivered by post.

The winning comment will be drawn randomly at the 14th October 2019 out of all comments that include the code phrase. The odds of winning depend on the number of participants.

We will announce the winner’s name on our Facebook page. If you spot your name in our announcement, please message us on Facebook. If the winner does not claim the prize within 14 days after the announcement, we will draw another comment to determine a substitute winner.



Every participant is allowed to comment the code phrase once. Participants may only use one (their own) Facebook profile. Comments that include copyright infringements, hate speech or any illegal content, are strictly forbidden. We will delete such comments.

We reserve the right to exclude the participants from the giveaway in case of violation of the before mentioned rules.


Data protection

We will exclusively process personal data due to your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).

If you win in this giveaway, your name will be announced on our Facebook page. You consent to the announcement as soon as you post a comment including the code phrase under the givaway’s post. If you change your mind, delete your comment before the deadline for entries ends or send us a message on Facebook. Be aware that this will automatically end your participation in this giveaway.

Depending on the prize itself, we need either a postal address or an e-mail address to be able to send the vouchers. We will delete your personal data when you have received the prize. The before mentioned personal data is exclusively processed by us and not by Facebook.

If we process your personal data, you have the right to obtain information if (and what kind of) personal data is being processed (Article 15 GDPR). Furthermore, you have the rights according to the articles 16-20 GDPR, which include the right to rectification, the right to erasure, the right to restriction of processing and the right to data portability.

For further questions, you may contact our data protection commissioner: dsb@union-paritaet.de


Reservation of rights/ legal actions

The giveaway and these terms and conditions will be governed by German law and any disputes will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Germany.

Due to the lack of consideration, no recourse to legal action is permitted in connection with the rightful execution of this giveaway.

We reserve the right to cancel or suspend the giveaway due to technical reasons and in case that a rightful execution of this giveaway is endangered, especially by cheating or any other rule violating behavior.
