VIII. Data Protection Notice

The provision of personal data according to Section III No. 1a) of these terms and conditions serves the purpose of determining participants (first and last name), eligibility (date of birth), and sending the necessary clothing items for the shoot (clothing size, postal address) during the application process. The inquiry for the Instagram profile is necessary for selecting shooting candidates. For the purpose of travel booking, personal data will be shared with travel agencies, airlines, and other service providers responsible for bookings. The transmitted data will be deleted completely after the shooting has concluded, and legal retention periods have expired.

2. Participants are free to revoke their consent to data processing via email to goldsgym_apparel@rsggroup.com and thereby withdraw from participation. Upon revocation by the participant, participation in the application process ends immediately.

3. Regarding data usage by Instagram, please refer to Instagram's privacy policies at https://de-de.facebook.com/help/instagram/155833707900388.

IX. Instagram Guidelines and Conditions

1. There is no connection to Instagram. In addition to these terms and conditions, the relationship between GGT, participants, and Instagram is governed by Instagram's terms of use (Nutzungsbedingungen | Instagram-Hilfebereich (facebook.com)) and privacy rules (https://de-de.facebook.com/help/instagram/155833707900388).

2. Participants cannot make claims against Instagram arising from participation in the application process. GGT will indemnify Instagram from claims made by participants.

3. All inquiries and information regarding the application process should be directed to GGT.

X. Liability

1. GGT is liable within the scope of the application process – regardless of legal basis – only for intent or gross negligence without limitation. For slight negligence, GGT is only liable for violating obligations essential for participation in the application process (cardinal obligations). Cardinal obligations are obligations that enable proper participation and on which participants can regularly rely. These limitations of liability also apply in cases of fault by employees and agents of GGT. These limitations of liability do not apply in cases of personal injury.

2. GGT strives to offer a disturbance-free operation of the application process and to keep it available as much as possible. However, GGT points out that complete uninterrupted availability is not technically feasible. GGT does not provide any guarantee for a disturbance-free operation of the application process. In particular, GGT is not precluded from restricting access to the application process due to maintenance work, capacity constraints, and other events beyond their control, either partially, temporarily, or even permanently.

3. GGT is not liable for damages that may arise from transmission errors, delays, or interruptions in transmission, technical disruptions, incorrect content, loss or deletion of data, viruses, or any other form of damage arising during participation, unless such damages are caused intentionally, grossly negligently, or by violating cardinal obligations by GGT or its agents. Damages caused by injury to life, body, or health are not covered by this liability disclaimer. Furthermore, GGT is not liable for lost profits, loss of earnings, and loss and/or destruction of personal items, etc. Liability due to force majeure (extraordinary, unforeseeable natural events and weather conditions) and damages resulting from it are excluded.

XI. Final Provisions

1. Legal recourse is excluded.

2. The law of the Federal Republic of Germany exclusively applies, excluding the provisions of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (UN Convention) – unless the protection granted by mandatory provisions of the law of the state of habitual residence of the participant is not withdrawn by this (principle of favorability) for consumers.

3. Should individual provisions of these terms and conditions be or become invalid, the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected. In place of the invalid provision, the one that most closely corresponds to the originally intended purpose of the regulation shall apply.
