4.1 By submitting a design to the Promoter, the participant irrevocably transfers the right for unlimited use, exploitation and publication of the graphic material/design created by the participant. The Promoter or third parties, in particular companies of the NEW YORKER SE group, acting with the consent of NEW YORKER, may use the graphic material/design produced without any restrictions in terms of time, place and content, irrespective of the transmission, carrier and storage techniques on products of companies of the NEW YORKER SE group and for advertising purposes.

The Promoter accepts liability, limited to the value of foreseeable damages inherent in contracts, for such damages which are not contained within sentences 1 and 2 of number 4.1 and are caused by the culpable conduct of the legal representatives, executive employees or other persons providing assistance to the Promoter. Such breach of material contractual obligations shall be deemed to exist if the breach of obligations relates to an obligation of the performance of which the participant reasonably relied upon and was legally entitled to rely upon and that establishes a binding contractual relationship between the Promoter and the entrant. All further liability for damages, irrespective of the legal nature of the claim made, is excluded. The Promoter shall be in no circumstances liable for any indirect/or consequential loss or damage.

If the entrant provides incorrect assurance regarding copyright or usage rights to the detriment of the Promoter, the entrant will be liable to pay damages to the Promoter.
5.4 Should other persons have been involved in the creation of the image than the participating persons, uploading is only permitted if the consent of the third party/parties has been obtained beforehand and no personal rights of the third party/parties are violated.

The internet pages of the Promoter use so-called cookies in several places, which will be saved by the browser.

Instead of the ineffective provision a valid provision is deemed to have been agreed that most closely reflects the meaning and purpose of the ineffective provision. If anything has been omitted, a provision is deemed to have been agreed that in terms of the meaning and purpose of these entry conditions most closely reflects what would have been agreed if the point had been taken into consideration at the beginning.
