These are the general competition rules for Themeparkzoo.
If there are special competition rules for a match, these general rules apply in addition to the special rules. In the event of a conflict between these rules and the special competition rules, the special rules shall prevail.
These competition rules determine the general rules concerning the conditions of participation in all competitions that Themeparkzoo organises via its website, other online channels (such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter) or in any other way.
If specific conditions apply to a competition, special competition rules will also be drawn up for that competition. The provisions of the special competition rules take precedence over the other provisions of these general competition rules.

The winner has a certain amount of time to register the trip. The winner who, for any reason whatsoever, does not take the trip, cannot claim any compensation or indemnity from the theme park zoo and/or the organiser. The prize is then awarded to the Themeparkzoo and/or the organiser.
The trip won is always in the name of the winner and cannot be exchanged or converted into cash in any way whatsoever. It is also prohibited to offer the prize free of charge or to offer it in an auction in any way whatsoever, including (but not exclusively) on websites.
