The competitions are run by New Yorker in association with various partners (co-promotion partners), who also provide the prizes (prize sponsors). New Yorker represents the co-promotion partners during the competition and offers the prizes sponsored by them in their name. This does not give rise to any sponsoring obligations on the part of New Yorker unless New Yorker has sponsored a prize itself in an individual case.

4.10 If the prize won is a holiday, all the holiday arrangements must be made directly between the winners and the sponsor in question or a tour operator acting on its behalf. In cases in which the date of the holiday is not named in the competition, only the sponsor or the tour operator has the right to set the date of the holiday. No claim to a specific holiday date exists. If the holiday is not taken on the date or during the period set by the sponsor or tour operator, the claim to the prize will be forfeited. By confirming the holiday, the winner agrees to the terms and conditions of the tour operator.
4.11 The winner will be liable for the costs of travel to and from the starting point of the holiday (airport, station, etc.) unless stated otherwise in the competition or explicitly agreed. The same will apply to all costs incurred during the holiday (minibar, telephone etc.).
4.12 The value of the holiday indicated in the description of the prizes refers to the high season and is, depending upon the time at which the holiday is taken, subject to seasonal differences and exchange rate fluctuations. No payments will be made to compensate for this difference in value.
4.13 Cash prizes will be sent to winners as a collection-only cheque to the address named. However New Yorker reserves the right to transfer the cash prize to the bank account of the winner. The winner is required to give his/her bank account details for this purpose. New Yorker has the right to pass these bank account details on to the relevant co-promotion partner to enable it to make the credit transfer.
4.14 If it is not possible to provide the prize or only in circumstances that are unreasonable, the winner will receive a substitute prize of the same value.

4.15 Prizes or substitute prizes will not be paid out in cash.
4.16 The claim to a prize or substitute prize is non-transferable.
5. Termination of the competition
5.1 New Yorker reserves the right to suspend and end the competition at any time without notice and without indication of grounds. In particular, New Yorker will exercise this right if it is not possible to hold the competition / prize draw in the due and proper manner for technical reasons (e.g. a virus in the computer system, manipulation of or malfunctions in the hardware and/or software) or for legal reasons. Should such termination have been caused by the conduct of a participant, New Yorker has the right to claim compensation from such a person for the damage/losses it has incurred.
5.2 New Yorker will have discharged all its obligations at the time it hands over the prize unless these entry conditions stipulated an earlier time.
6.1 New Yorker will only accept liability for damage or loss that was caused by New Yorker or one of its vicarious agents with intent or due to gross negligence, or due to violation of a material contractual duty. This will not apply to damage or loss caused by death, physical injury or damage to health.

6.5 New Yorker will not accept any liability for insolvency of one of its co-promotion partners or the ensuing consequences with regard to holding the competition and the prizes.
7.1 The place of performance and place of jurisdiction of all disputes arising from and in connection with the competition and the draw will – to the extent that this is legally admissible – be the Local Court (Amtsgericht) or Regional Court (Landgericht) with jurisdiction for New Yorker. These conditions of entry are governed by German law.
7.2 Should any of the provisions of these conditions be without effect or become null and void, or anything have been omitted from the present or any future version of these conditions, or should they be fully or partly without legal force or impossible to implement or subsequently lose their legal force or become impossible to implement, this shall not affect the validity of the other provisions. 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.
