Invitations sent by the participant to his / her friends & family

The participant may decide, if he or she so wishes, to invite some of his friends or relatives to sign up for the Competition. In this case, the participant may, in his or her capacity as holder and in charge of the processing of the e-mail addresses of his friends or relatives, provide the Organizer with their e-mail addresses so that the Organizer can send them on behalf of the participant their invitation to participate in the Competition.

The participant must take the initiative and responsibility to provide the e-mail address of his / her friends or relatives for the purpose of sending such an invitation. He or she must undertake to obtain the explicit and informed consent of the holders of the e-mail addresses that he or she provides to the Organizer.

As a result, the participant releases the Organizer from any liability arising from the e-mails of friends or relatives he or she provides to the Organizer and the sending of an invitation message to such friends or relatives.

The Competition Organizer and Operator on behalf of the Organizer process the traffic and connection data to the Competition website and retain, in particular, the identifier (IP address) of the computer used by a participant for the purposes of establishing visitor statistics for the website, ensuring the security of the website and verifying the sincerity and fairness of participation in the Competition and the compliance with the rules, in particular to prevent or detect any automated request on the website or any automated invitation to third parties which would systematically lead to the exclusion of the participant concerned and to any prize and would expose the participant concerned to legal proceedings that may be brought against him or her by the Organizer or by third parties. If necessary, the Organizer may make such traffic data available to third parties or public authorities under the conditions laid down by law.

For each person invited by a participant who decides to sign up for the game, they may receive one additional chance of being drawn.
