Conditions of Participation for raffles and prize draws

USECON – The Usability Consultants GmbH (referred to as „USECON“), offers occasionally online raffles and prize draws. The participation in raffles and prize draws shall be based on our participation conditions.

Data protection

With the participation in raffles and prize draws the participant explicitly consents, that USECON is permitted to store the necessary data for the period of the raffle/prize draw and beyond.  Participants may at any time withdraw the permission and thereby withdraw from participation. Collected data will be used for market research by USECON and her partner organisation CURE. USECON points out that all personal data will not be made available to third parties. The winners shall consent to publication of their names and place of domicile.

Participation / Prize draw

The raffles/prize draws will be carried out depending on the action either autonomously or in cooperation with partners. The prize draw only takes place within Austria. For the draw only participants will be considered, who have registered (during the runtime of the raffles/prize draws) on (or in the indicated respective form for the raffle/prize draw) and entered their data completely, true and correct. Among all participants/registrations the lot decides ensuring random principle. One participant may be awarded one prize only. Cash payment or a transfer of the winnings is not possible. In case the handover is not possible or unacceptable, the winner will receive an equivalent replacement.

The winners will be informed in writing by USECON. In case the winner fails to answer the notice within 21 days, the claim to the prize expires and according to the same procedure a substitute winner will be drawn. The participant is responsible for the correctness of the submitted address. The announcement of the winners shall be without guarantee.

For the participation in the raffle/prize draw it is absolutely required that all personal data is true and correct. Employees of USECON and affiliated companies as well as raffle partners including relatives of the aforementioned groups are excluded from participation. USECON reserves the right to exclude persons from participation if there are justifying reasons, e.g. breach of the conditions of participation, double participation, undue influence on the raffle, manipulation, etc. In such cases winnings can subsequently be revoked or reclaimed.

Provided that such a termination caused by the conduct of a participant USECON is entitled to demand compensation for the damage caused by this person.

Liability imitations  

SECON can only be held liable if the damage was caused by breach of a significant contractual obligation (cardinal obligation) in a manner that endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract or have acted grossly negligently or with intent. If USECON is liable under the previous paragraph for the breach of a significant contractual obligation without any occurrence of intent or gross negligence, the liability is limited to typically foreseeable damage, the occurrence of which we should have anticipated in accordance with the circumstances known to us upon conclusion of contract.

The afore-mentioned limitations of liability shall not apply to culpable injury to life, limb and health and for personal damage, for damages according to the product liability law or in case of a contractually agreed obligation to assume liability irrespective of any fault as well as the causal circumstances for liability have maliciously been concealed.

As far as the liability of USECON according to the regulations of this disclaimer is excluded or limited this is also valid for the personal liability of executive bodies, employees, representatives and vicarious agents.


Should any of the individual provisions in these conditions of entry prove invalid or become invalid, the remaining parts shall remain unaffected in their content and validity. The invalid part will be replaced by an appropriate arrangement that comes as close as possible to this provision.

For our raffles/prize draws any recourse to courts of law is excluded.
