Terms of Participation

Participation in the competition organized by PALFINGER AG, hereinafter referred to as Operator or Organizer, is free of charge and exclusively subject to these conditions of competition entry.

Running of the competition

It is possible to enter the competition between August 22, 2022, 14:00 (CET) and December 15, 2022, 24:00 (CET). During this period, users will get the opportunity to upload a challenge participation video or photo online at reachanything.palfinger.com or reachanything.net and enter the competition. Participation in this competition is free of charge, but first requires participants to create and submit a challenge video or photo.

Entry

To participate, participants must first submit a video they have filmed or a photo they have taken of themselves in front of a PALFINGER crane or other PALFINGER product and telling the Organizer that they can reach anything with PALFINGER. Participants must also provide certain information (first name, last name, pseudonym, country, e-mail address) and agree to the conditions of competition entry.

Every participation entry is checked and manually activated by one of the Organizer’s staff members. The Organizer reserves the right to refuse to activate entries without giving a reason and not allow people to participate in the competition if the Organizer feels that the entries conflict with the PALFINGER AG code of conduct, are opposed to the concept and purpose of the event, or visibly breach copyright.

To win, participants must get likes for their entries. They can get likes in one of the following ways:

  1.  The video or photo is liked by visitors to the website (1 visitor equals max. 1 like).

It is strictly prohibited to nominate yourself and to use multiple entries to increase your chances of winning. It is also strictly prohibited to automatically like your own entries and others’ entries in an attempt to influence who wins the competition. In the event of a breach, the Organizer reserves the right to exclude the participant from the competition.

By entering the competition, you give your consent to your personal information, specifically first and last name, pseudonym, country and e-mail address, being used for the purpose of carrying out the competition. This information will not be passed on to third parties.

By entering the competition, you also give your consent to your submitted challenge video or photo, your pseudonym and your country of origin being published on the landing page reachanything.palfinger.com or reachanything.net. You also give your consent to the submission video or photo and the pseudonym being published for the purpose of advertising the competition on PALFINGER’s own channels (websites, social media, various online and offline publications), but also to the possibility of them being used in certain advertising formats in external media. You also acknowledge that you will have no claim to compensation if this content is published.

This consent can be withdrawn at any time by sending a written notification to dataprotection@palfinger.com. In cases of doubt, you may no longer be allowed to participate in the competition.
