Once the competition is over, all data will be deleted. Participants in the competition hereby agree to allow their first name and the first letter of the surname to be published on http://www.facebook.com/bmwyachtsport should they win.

In case of incorrect information, or should any suspicion arise that entrants are using unfair means, or should a participant or third party have benefitted from any manipulation or breached these entry conditions, BMW reserves the right to disqualify the participant(s) from the competition without having to specify any reason.


Participation in competition

All participants who answer the question “What are the new features of the steering wheel? correctly by commenting on the competition post can enter the competition. Multiple comments on the post will count as a single entry. Comments that violate Facebook policies, German law and/or copyright will be removed without notice as soon as they are noticed. The participant is thereby excluded from the competition.

After the registration period has ended, the winners will be chosen at random by BMW by February 17th 2017.


Determination of prizes

The prizes of the competition mentioned above are three (3) hand-signed ORACLE TEAM USA t-shirts.


Notification of winner

The winners will be informed with a direct Facebook message, which will contain a request for their postal address. If any winner does not get in touch with their full, correct details within one week, they will forfeit their win and another draw will be made to determine a new winner of the shirt.

The prizes are posted free of charge to the winners. It is not possible to exchange the prizes, or to exchange them for a cash payment. However, BMW reserves the right to change the prizes, should BMW be required to do so as a result of influences outside of its sphere of influences.


Termination of competition

BMW reserves the right to end or terminate the competition at any time and to change the entry conditions, particularly if, for technical or legal reasons, it can no longer be guaranteed that the competition is run properly.

Only one registration per person is considered for the competition. BMW reserves the right to change, supplement or discontinue the competition should the impression arise that attempts are made to send several automated registrations or attempts be made to interfere with the competition in a disturbing manner by other means.



BMW assumes no liability for comments not received, or the availability of web sites, computer systems, networks, and telecommunication systems provided by BMW or third parties that are necessary to access the organizer’s website or computer system. Nor does BMW assume liability for any other technical problems during the transfer of information.

BMW is only liable for damages in case of intent and gross negligence. This does not apply in the case of damages arising out of death and injury to body or health. Nor does it apply to a violation of contractual obligations. These are obligations that are fundamental to the running of the competition. Without them, the competition would not be possible. Because of this, the participant trusts that these obligations are being fulfilled. Compensation for the violation of contractual obligations is restricted to foreseeable damages typical of competitions, unless there is evidence of intent or gross negligence, or liability for damages arising out of death and injury to body or health.


Data protection notices

If a winner is determined, personal data – the first name, surname and postal address – will be used to conduct the competition. This data is used exclusively to conduct the competition and is deleted again once the competition is over.

By entering the competition, the participant agrees that BMW may publish their name on the BMW Yachtsport Facebook Page should they win as stated above.


Severability Clause

Should a provision of these Terms and Conditions be considered invalid or unenforceable, the effectiveness or enforceability of the remaining Terms and Conditions are not affected and the invalid or unenforceable provision is replaced by such a valid provision as comes nearest to the basic intention of the invalid or unenforceable provision. The same applies in case of a gap.



The Terms and Conditions are subject to German law. The courts of Munich shall have exclusive jurisdictions for any disputes arising out of or in connection with this Terms and Conditions.

There is no right of appeal. There is no enforceable claim to the prize or the payment of the cash equivalent.
