Entry conditions

Entry in the prize draw at the 2017 Day of Logistics of the European Pallet Association e.V. (EPAL), hereinafter called the Operator or the Organiser, is free of charge and is subject exclusively to these entry conditions.

The prize draw process
The prize draw will be run from 27.04.2017 to 07.05.2017, 00.00. Within this period, users will be given an opportunity to enter this prize draw online.

To enter the prize draw you have to complete the entry form shown and submit it. You may only enter during the entry period. Entries received after the draw is closed will not be entered in the draw.

Each entrant may submit only one entry. It is strictly forbidden to use several email addresses to increase your chances of winning.

Entry to the prize draw is free.

Those entitled to enter
Natural persons resident in Germany aged 14 or over are entitled to enter. Entry is not restricted to licensees and members of the Organiser’s association and is not dependent upon the purchase of any goods or services.

If an entrant’s capacity to contract is limited, the consent of his legal representative is required.

The following are not entitled to enter the prize draw: all those involved in the design and implementation of the prize draw and the Operator’s employees and their family members. The Operator also reserves the right to exclude persons from entry on the basis of its own judgement if there is good reason, for instance

(a) in the event of manipulation in connection with access to or the running of the prize draw, (b) in the event of breaches of the entry conditions, (c) in the event of dishonest actions or (d) in the event of incorrect or misleading statements in connection with entry in the prize draw.

Winning a prize, notification and giving out of the prizes
The following prizes are to be given:
1st to 3rd prize: EPAL large miniature pallet with cartwheel

4th to 6th prize: EPAL Europallet miniature construction kit

7th to 20th prize: EPAL Mini-Europallet 

All the prizes are carefully constructed individual pieces made of natural timber and they may vary by nature.


The winner will be chosen by a random draw from among all the entrants once the prize draw has closed. If the prize draw is linked to a task, only those entrants who have correctly completed the task will be included in the draw.

The winners of the draw will be promptly informed that they have won by a separate email.

The prizes will be handed out only to the winners or to their legal representatives in the case of minors. It is not possible to exchange the prize, collect it yourself or receive the prize in cash.

Any costs incurred in sending the prizes shall be borne by the Operator. Any additional costs associated with claiming the prize are to be borne by the winner. The winner himself is liable for any taxation of the prize.

If the winner does not contact the Organiser after twice being asked within a period of 3 weeks, the prize may be transferred to another entrant.

End of the prize draw
The Organiser expressly reserves the right to end the prize draw without prior notice and without giving any reason. This applies in particular to those reasons that would interfere with or prevent the planned process of the prize draw.

Data protection
To permit entry to the prize draw, personal data must be provided. The entrant guarantees that the statements made by him about himself, in particular his first name, surname and email address, are true and correct.

The Organiser would like to point out that no personal data about the entrant will be passed on to third parties or be given to them to use without the entrant’s consent.

In the event of a win, the winner declares that he consents to the publication of his name and place of residence in the advertising media used by the Organiser. This includes the announcement of the winner on the Operator’s website and its social media platforms.

The entrant may at any time withdraw the consent he has given. The withdrawal is to be addressed in writing to the Organiser’s contact details shown in the legal notices section. Following withdrawal of consent, the entrant’s personal data recorded and stored will be deleted without delay.


Applicable law
Any questions or complaints in connection with the prize draw are to be addressed to the Operator. You will find options for contact in the legal notices section of the website.

The Operator’s prize draw is subject exclusively to the law of the Federal Republic of Germany. Legal remedies are excluded.

Saving clause
If a term of these entry conditions is or becomes invalid in full or in part, this does not affect the validity of the other entry conditions. The invalid term shall be replaced by a legally permitted one that comes closest in commercial terms to the meaning and purpose expressed by the invalid term. The same applies in the event of the occurrence of a gap in the rules in these entry conditions.

The EPAL team wishes you good luck and every success!
