1. General / details of competition

The promoter of the competition is Victorinox AG in 6438 Ibach-Schwyz. There is no fee to enter the competition. Competition entry forms may be obtained from individual Victorinox stores in Zurich City[1], Lucerne[2], Brunnen[3], Geneva[4], London[5], Düsseldorf[6] and Cologne.[7] Entry may also be made online at www.vx.ag/xmas-16. No purchase is necessary. All persons who are capable of acting and have reached their 18th birthday at the time of entering the competition are eligible to enter. However, employees of the Victorinox group of companies are not eligible to enter. Entrants may enter the competition multiple times, subject to a maximum of once per game week. The Victorinox Christmas competition will take place from 16 November 2016 to 21 December 2016. During this competition period, Victorinox will place six products each game week on the specified competition platform as well as on the entry forms in the above-mentioned Victorinox stores. Each week, a draw will be held for the entrants to win one of these six products as the prize of the week. At the end of the competition period the main prize, as referred to in clause 4, will be awarded. For an entry to be valid, it is necessary to register with personal address details to enable any later notification of winning. Registration takes place direct via the competition platform or on the competition entry form. Each week, entrants may nominate one of the six named products as their favourite and so get the chance to win their desired product. In addition, there are further functions available, such as the "Sharing Function". All entrants who use this "Sharing Function" are given the chance to purchase the limited- edition Christmas “Make a Wish” Climber Limited Xmas Edition pocket knife. If the prize draw is shared by means of this function, a link will be activated so that the knife may be bought in the Victorinox Online Shop (only available in Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, Austria and Great Britain). Alternatively, the given code may be used to buy the pocket knife in one of the participating Victorinox stores. Quantity is limited to three knives per customer.

The deadline each week for entry in that week's prize draw is Tuesday at 12.00 midnight. The draw will take place each week on Thursday at the latest. The winner will be decided by lot. The drawing of the lot will be overseen by an independent third party.

The terms and conditions of participation are available in three languages (German, English and French).
