      b) Participation in campaigns relating to the Bonus Awards

      (1) Participation in voting and surveys

      It is not necessary to provide personal data, in particular registration, to participate in the voting.

      The data you provide to me as part of your voting will be analysed by me exclusively to determine the Bonus Award winners.

      The data that you also provide to me as part of the survey will be evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes in order to improve my offer for you and to create a study on the use of bonus programmes.

      For the creation, technical implementation and evaluation of the voting and the survey, I use the services of the provider Lamapoll, a product of Lamano GmbH & Co. KG, Frankfurter Allee 69, 10247 Berlin, Germany (hereinafter referred to as “Lamapoll”). By voluntarily participating in the voting and the survey or by clicking on the “Vote + Win” button, you will be forwarded directly to Lamapoll, which will process the data you provide for us in compliance with the necessary data protection and data security measures.

      By using Lamapoll’s services, Lamapoll collects and processes personal data that you voluntarily provide in individual cases. Lamapoll acts as a service provider for me within the framework of order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. Lamapoll uses the data collected exclusively for the purpose stated here, on my behalf. Lamapoll will not use the data for any other purpose or pass it on to third parties. The data collected by Lamapoll will not be stored together with other personal data of the voting or survey participant.

      Weitere Informationen zur Verarbeitung von Daten durch Lamapoll finden Sie unter: sowie für die Nutzung des Umfrage Tools unterärung-Umfrage-Tool.pdf.

      Participation in the voting and survey is voluntary. If you provide your e-mail address following the voting and survey as part of the competition, this may also establish a personal reference to the additional information. The processing of the data is then based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR and is based on my legitimate interest in conducting and analysing the voting for the Bonus Awards.

      This data will only be stored for the duration of the voting and evaluation for 6 months. The data will then be deleted.

      It is not possible to correct individual answers after the survey has been sent.

      (2) Participation in competitions

      In order to participate in a competition organised on this website, it is necessary to process certain personal data for the purpose of notifying and transmitting any prizes and for your identification.

      For your participation in this competition, I initially only need your e-mail address.

      I will only need your contact details (name and address) after the prize has been determined and only in the event that you have been selected as the winner so that I can send you the prize if necessary.

      Depending on the type of prize, it may also be necessary to provide other or additional data (e.g. your membership number if you win bonus points from the relevant bonus programme). I will request this additional data by writing to you by e-mail using the e-mail address you have provided. You are not obliged to provide me with this additional data. However, in the event that you do not provide me with this additional data, I may not be able to send you the prize.

      Your personal data will be processed by me for the purpose of organising the competition on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR.

      I organise the competitions together with cooperation partners. In individual cases, it may be necessary for me to forward certain data to the cooperation partner specifically responsible for redeeming the prize. For example, in order to redeem bonus points won, the provider of the relevant bonus programme must be informed of the winner’s bonus programme membership number. You will be informed of this co-operation partner prior to the corresponding data transfer as part of your prize notification. Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties or used for advertising purposes (e.g. to send newsletters) if this is necessary to carry out the competition or if you have given your express prior consent.

      If you subscribe to a newsletter from us as part of the competition, please note our data protection information on our newsletter dispatch in this declaration.

      Your personal data will be deleted automatically after the competition has ended, unless you have given us your consent to process your data beyond the purpose of the competition or statutory regulations prevent the deletion.
