  11. Article 4 § 1 of the Belgian Data Protection Law of 8 December 1992 applies to entrants’ personal information.

Entrants are entitled to access, correct and object to these details at any time.
  12. Should participation in the contest entail sending in or uploading material, the entrant cedes to Sanoma automatically and free of charge all intellectual rights to the material for the entire works and for the entire validity period of the rights, for usage in the context of the contest, without any further restriction and as broadly as legally permitted. With regard to any potential other right holders, the entrant ensures that they transfer their rights relating to the material to Sanoma in the same way. The transfer entails the right to reproduce, distribute and/or adapt the material (or have this performed) based on all means and processes and on all carriers. Each entrant confirms to have the prior approval from all persons depicted in the material to send this in and or upload it for the contest and to publish it in every media (print, websites, apps, TV, radio, etc.) operated by Sanoma, its affiliated companies and/or third parties. If minors are depicted in material, the entrant confirms having approval from the parents or guardian. The material sent in by the entrant may by no means present a situation disrespectful toward third parties, or portray a risk situation for the entrant or other person whosoever occurring in the material. No brand whatsoever, except for the Sanoma brands involved insofar as the use of these is part of the contest, and more generally no visual element whatsoever, may occur in the material that infringes on the privacy or on the rights of third parties. The material may not contain any offensive, insulting, pornographic, racist, shocking, illegal or indecent elements. No product or situation prohibited by law may be visible. Sanoma reserves the right to remove material that does not comply with the conditions expressed in these regulations, and on the basis of this to exclude the entrant from participating in the contest in question or in other ones.
  13. If third-party technologies and/or media are used for the contest, this in no sense implies the involvement of these third parties in the contest. Unless explicitly stated otherwise in the contest, Sanoma is the sole organiser.
  14. By taking part in the contest, entrants accept these rules fully and unconditionally. For online, telephone or SMS contests: By taking part in the contest, entrants accept the limitations of the Internet, SMS and IVR services, including in particular technical services, the risk of interruptions and, more generally, the risks inherent to every online activity or any transmission via SMS or IVR. SMB does not assume any responsibility in this area.
