Facebook prize draw terms and conditions of participation
These terms and conditions of participation apply to prize draws that we hold exclusively on the wall of our Facebook sites – without the use of a special prize draw app.
Terms and conditions of participation
What can I win?
The prize is indicated in the respective prize draw posting.
The prizes cannot be exchanged or redeemed for cash. The prizes are not transferable. Booking is subject to availability.
Start and end of the prize draw
The start of the prize competition is the date of publication on our Facebook page; the timing of the draw will be indicated separately for each prize draw.
Who can take part?
Users who are at least 18 years of age. Employees of WienTourismus (Vienna Tourist Board) and their relatives are excluded from participating in the prize draw. Automated playing is not allowed.
How will the winners be determined?
Unless indicated otherwise, the winner will be chosen at random. Exceptions will be communicated in the prize draw posting (for example: The picture with the most likes wins, selection of the winner by a jury, etc.). Each participant can only win one prize.
How will the winners be notified?
The winners will be identified and notified immediately after the end of the prize draw. As a rule, we will send the prize by post or – in the case of guest list places or event tickets – by email/private Facebook message. Should the prize have to be collected, this will be additionally indicated in the posting.
What will happen to my details?
All decisions are final.
This prize draw is in no way connected with Facebook, i.e. it is neither sponsored, supported nor administered by Facebook.
Additional conditions for photographic competitions
If you are required to submit a photo in order to participate in a prize draw, the following additional conditions will apply: Ensure that you are not infringing anyone else's rights; you must have taken the photo and obtained permission to publish the photo from everyone shown in the photo. Furthermore (as for all contributions), all illegal content is prohibited, especially content that is pornographic, promotes racism or is degrading to people. You will be held personally liable for any violations in contradiction of these rules.
Which rights of use do we require?
By posting a photo, you agree to consent that we can publish the photo in a Facebook photo album bearing your name.
Your photo will only be used by us in conjunction with the prize draw. However, you are aware and agree that the posted photos and texts may also be discussed and linked to in social media (in particular, Facebook) via the Vienna Tourist Board and third parties.
The VTB reserves the right not to publish submitted contributions or to publish them with modifications or cuts, insofar as this does not curtail their sense and meaning.
