General Conditions of Use
General Conditions of Use laid down by FC Bayern München AG for utilisation of information facilities and services on website https://fcbayern.com
1. Scope of application
1.1 These Conditions of Use are applicable to the utilisation of information facilities and services which you (whereby you are referred to below as the “User”) can subscribe to and utilise on the website https://fcbayern.com, provided that this is not subject to any other Terms & Conditions. This relates to information facilities and services relating to FC Bayern München AG, Säbener Straße 51-57, 81547 Munich, represented by the directors: Jan-Christian Dreesen, Andreas Jung and Dr. Michael Diederich (hereinafter referred to as "FCB").
1.2 FCB reserves the right to amend these Conditions of Use with future effect.
2.1 For purposes of using individual information facilities and services on the website https://fcbayern.com and to create a subscription, the User can or must register. In this context, the User undertakes to make a correct and full statement of information as required for purposes of registration, and he/she should keep such information up-to-date if any changes arise. The User can, once logged in, enter updates under “My FCB profile”.
2.2 FCB reserves the right at any time to extend, to amend or to apply improvements to the services which are offered, if the changes are reasonably acceptable to the User, taking account of FCB’s interests. This will be the case, in particular, if the changes do not entail any financial disadvantages for the User, such as in cases where new functionalities are introduced.
2.3 You are allowed to register once only, in order to prevent duplicates from arising. (If you have forgotten your password, you can set a fresh password using the “Forgot my password” function.)
2.4 The User undertakes never to disclose his/her password, even if asked to do so. Please note that FCB and/or service employees should never ask the User for his/her password.
2.5 The User will be liable for any losses arising due to third parties’ finding out his/her password due to the User’s negligent or wilful action. If the User’s password has been stolen, or if the User finds out that his/her password has been abused by third parties, then FCB should be informed immediately, either via the feedback section or by email.
3. User’s obligations
3.1 The facilities may be used exclusively for private purposes. Utilisation for commercial purposes is not permitted. In particular, the User may not use the services in order to advertise other websites, services or commercial offers.
3.2 The User is under obligation to refrain from infringing applicable legal regulations in his/her use of the website and the services offered on it. In particular, the User must ensure that the content (including links) which the User distributes does not infringe any third-party rights (such as copyright, for example), must ensure that his/her content complies with applicable criminal law regulations and regulations for the protection of young people, with particular reference to avoiding the propagation of any racist, pornographic or obscene content or content which glamorises violence or drugtaking, and also any abusive content or any content unsuitable for minors. Furthermore, the User undertakes to refrain from distributing any viruses or unsolicited mass transmissions, and to refrain from any other steps that could jeopardise the functioning and availability of the services. It is also forbidden to issue invitations to participate in chain letters, pyramid games or any other gambling.
3.3 The User is fully and directly responsible for his/her own behaviour and for content which he/she introduces (including links). In this context, the User hereby holds FCB exempt from any third-party claims and from the costs of any required legal defence directed against FCB as a result of the User’s action or content.
4. Third-party content; Deletion of content
4.1 Content posted, sent or received by Users does not constitute FCB’s content (“third-party content”): rather, such content is attributable exclusively to the User which has posted it. Because such content is set in real time, it is not possible for FCB to examine content immediately.
4.2 The User agrees to the utilisation and publication of his/her content on all platforms.
4.3 As soon as FCB detects any obviously illegal content, FCB is entitled to delete such content without prior notice. This will arise, in particular, in the event of any infringement against the provisions of clause 4.2 above. The same will apply to any instance where FCB receives an order from the Government or from Court to remove such content or where FCB gives a third party its undertaking to discontinue the presence of any content in order to avoid Court proceedings. In other cases where there is well-founded suspicion of malpractice, FCB may in the 1st instance delete the content as a precaution against further loss, and may then initially block the User.
5.1 FCB is subject to unlimited liability for wilful and gross negligence. In the event of moderately negligent infringement of a cardinal obligation or of a subsidiary obligation -- whose infringement jeopardises the achievement of the purpose of contract, or whose fulfilment is in any case a prerequisite for the correct operation of the contract, and upon whose fulfilment the User is entitled to rely (hereinafter referred to as a “substantial subsidiary obligation”) -- FCB’s liability will be restricted to losses which are typically associated with such contracts and which are foreseeable at the stage of entering into a contract. FCB will not be held liable for moderately negligent infringement of contractual subsidiary obligations which do not count as substantial subsidiary obligations.
5.2 The above liability exclusions and restrictions do not apply to losses culpably arising in the form of loss of life, physical injury or damage to health, and do not apply to liability for the User’s claims where filed on the basis of product liability regulations or on the basis of malicious deception, nor from the acceptance of any guarantee of characteristics. This does not entail any change in the burden of proof to the User’s detriment.
5.3 These liability exclusions and restrictions also extend to the direct liability of FCB’s legal representatives and agents.
6. Chronological term
Free-of-charge services may be terminated by both parties, with immediate effect and without it being required to indicate any reasons. The User may, in the logged-in state, de-register from the corresponding service using the appropriate de-registration procedure. If you wish to terminate your personal user account, please send an email to email@example.com . Concerning the newsletter, the User is also made aware – in the footer to each newsletter – of this facility for de-registration. FCB will notify the User of the termination of any service, by sending an email to the email address that was given at the stage of registration.
7. Data protection
FCB regards the protection of personally-related data as highly important. Where FCB collects or processes any personally-related data in the context of its activities, this is done exclusively in accordance with data protection regulations with particular reference to GDPR, the European basic data protection regulations. Further information concerning data processing can be found in FCB’s data protection declaration on https://fcbayern.com/en/privacy.
8. Alternative resolution to disputes under consumer dispute resolution regulations
FCB is neither willing nor obliged to participate in dispute resolution proceedings conducted at consumer arbitration centres.
9. Applicable law; Partial invalidity
9.1 German law shall apply, to the exclusion of UN commercial law. If the User is a consumer as defined by §13, German civil code, and if his/her regular place of domicile is located in a European economic area State other than Germany, then he/she retains the right of protection according to the applicable provisions of his/her country of residence, and such provisions cannot be departed from by any agreement.
9.2 In the event that one or several provisions of these Conditions of Use should be or become wholly or partially invalid, then this shall not affect the validity of the Agreement and of its other provisions.

If a further condition for participation is required in the corresponding announcement post, this condition shall be added to the conditions specified here. Insofar as the order of a newsletter is part of the participation, the Participant can revoke this immediately after the participation and still take part in the competition.
3.3 The persons who meet all the requirements set forth in Section 2 (hereinafter referred to as “Participants”) where a technical selection procedure is used throughout the entire duration of the Competition have the same chance and the same general possibility of being selected. The time and selection of the User are subject to the principle of chance.
3.4 If the competition takes place via social media (Facebook, Instagram, etc.), it is not connected with Meta Platforms Inc. and is in no way sponsored, supported or organized by Meta Platform Inc.
4.1 Among all Participants a FC Bayern München Wiesn 23/24 Shirt will be raffled (hereinafter “Prize”). A cash payment of the Prize value or an exchange of the Prize is excluded. The claim to the Prize is not transferable.
4.2 Any pictorial or verbal presentation of the Prize in the FCB competition description is not necessarily identical with the item won. There may be deviations, in particular in the model, colour and features etc. FCB or its Cooperating Partner or the Prize Sponsor can select an item of average kind and quality of equivalent value to the item described as the Prize. If the prize involves an interaction with a natural person (e.g. meeting or video call with a FCB Player), FCB can replace this person with another person comparable to him or her.
4.3 The material Prize will be delivered to the winner free of charge.
4.4 Material Prizes and Prize gift vouchers will be delivered directly by the Prize Sponsor or a third party contracted by it to the address provided by the Winner. Delivery is generally made 4 (four) weeks after receipt of notification of the win. This period, however, is not binding and can be reasonably extended in the circumstances.
4.5 Material Prizes will not be paid in cash. If the Prize is no longer available, the Winner will receive a replacement of equal value or voucher from FCB or the relevant Prize Sponsor.
4.6 In the case of scheduled Prizes, the timely delivery of the Prize does not constitute a main service of FCB .
5. Exclusion of Participants
5.1 FCB reserves the right to exclude Participants from participating in the Competition. This applies, in particular, in the event of culpable violation of the Terms and Conditions of Participation, e.g. the Participant makes false statements or manipulates or seeks to manipulate the participation procedure or the game or uses other dishonest means.
5.2 FCB can exclude Participants, if there are substantial suspicions for believing that they would make statements constituting a criminal offence, in particular, by using defamation or hate speech, in the offers or events organized by FCB.
6. Exclusion of distribution of Prizes
Where FCB or the Prize Sponsor subsequently determines that the Participant has substantiated reasons for exclusion within the meaning of Article 5 or was not entitled to participate pursuant to Article 2, they are entitled to deprive the relevant Participant of the Prize and to require its return.
7. Publication of names
FCB is entitled to announce the Winner’s name publicly on its online platforms or those of its cooperation partners, in particular the Prize Sponsor, in accordance with the competition data protection notice (cf. Section 14 below), unless the Winner expressly objects to such publication. The public announcement is not a winning notification and does not constitute a claim to the receipt of a Prize.
8. Discontinuation, Force Majeure
8.1 FCB is entitled to discontinue or terminate the Competition at any time. This applies, in particular in cases of force majeure or if, for other organizational, technical or legal reasons, proper execution of the FCB Competition cannot be guaranteed or continued. Participants are not entitled to assert any claims against FCB in such cases. FCB expressly reserves the right to claim for losses incurred if discontinuation is caused by the conduct of a Participant.
8.2 If, in the event of force majeure, FCB is temporarily unable to fulfill its obligation to the winner or is unable to fulfill its obligation to the winner at the originally scheduled time, the winner has no claim to fulfillment at the originally scheduled time. The Prize will be paid when the temporary impediment has ceased to exist. If FCB is temporarily unable to fulfill its obligation to the winner in the event of force majeure, the winner's entitlement to the Prize shall lapse. FCB is not liable for futile expenses incurred by the winner in anticipation of the Prize distribution, costs incurred or other damages.
8.3 Force majeure is an unforeseeable, unavoidable and extraordinary event. Such an event shall be deemed to exist in particular, but not conclusively, in the event of war, riots or assassinations, terrorist warnings, bomb threats, strikes or lockouts, natural disasters or fire, danger to life and limb, severe weather, epidemics, pandemics or quarantine, serious accidents, official measures or other official interventions and all similar circumstances.
9.1 Prizes, provided in accordance with offers by Cooperating Partners or Prize Sponsors, are offered by FCB exclusively on their behalf. In such cases, FCB is not liable for timely and full distribution of the Prize nor for material or legal defects nor for inability of the Cooperating Partner to pay and the resultant consequences for the Competition.
9.2 Obvious defects in the Prize must be notified to FCB or the Cooperating Partner and Prize Sponsors, if these provide the Prize, within 14 days of delivery of the Prize. Timely dispatch of notification suffices to comply with the deadline.
9.3 FC Bayern Munich does not guarantee that all links and references made within the Competition are correct or complete.
9.4 In addition, the statutory guarantee regulations shall apply insofar as they are applicable, whereby the provisions limiting liability pursuant to Article 10 shall apply in case of assertion of a claim for damages.
10.1 FC Bayern Munich is not liable for incorrect information expressed and disseminated by Participants and/or third parties, including any cooperation partners of FC Bayern Munich, which is connected with the dissemination of information on the Competition.
10.2 The following regulations apply to the liability of FC Bayern Munich as well as to the liability of its employees, vicarious agents and assistants - irrespective of the legal grounds:
- FC Bayern Munich has unlimited liability for deliberate and grossly negligent breaches of duty, for damages arising from injury to life, body or health and for claims arising from the Product Liability Act.
- In the event of a breach of essential contractual obligations, i.e. such obligations whose fulfillment is essential for the proper execution of the cooperation agreement and on whose observance the other party regularly relies and may rely, the liability for slightly negligent breaches of duty is limited in amount to the damage typically foreseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract.
- Otherwise FC Bayern Munich is not liable.
10.3 The Participant is obligated to take reasonable measures to mitigate damages.
10.4 Sections 10.1 to 10.3 apply accordingly to the liability of FCB and its vicarious agents or the Prize Sponsor and its vicarious agents for futile expenses.

FCB does not adopt the content of the comment as its own. By commenting on the post, the Participant or his/her legal representative indemnifies FCB from any liability due to illegal statements as well as due to the infringement of intellectual property rights caused by the comment.
11. Relationship of verbal information with written Conditions of Participation
Where verbal information in the offer differs in terms of content from the present General Terms and Conditions of Participation or from the Conditions of Participation for individual Competitions (separate Conditions of Participation), with respect to the deviating information, only the provisions of the General Terms and Conditions or the written separate Conditions of Participation for the respective Competition will apply.
12. Amendment of the Conditions of Participation
FCB reserves the right to amend the Conditions of Participation. Changes to a Competition already underway, in particular changes to Competition rules, simulation of further users or absent users or interference with user selection or reduction of the Prize, are, however, not permitted.
13. Other provisions on implementation and operation of the Competition
13.1 Each Participant is limited to one Prize.
13.2 The Winner will be notified by FCB or the Cooperating Partner or Prize Sponsor after the end of the Competition, in text form and/or by telephone. By participating in the competition, the participant acknowledges that FCB may contact him for the purpose of further execution of the competition (e.g. to notify him of winning or reaching a possible intermediate round). The claim to the Prize only arises upon notification. If the Prize notification is undeliverable, FCB is not obliged to make further inquiries.
13.3 The Participant must provide his correct postal address or telephone number. The claim to the Prize expires, if the Participant fails to provide the requested information within 14 days of notification of the Prize and the Participant is responsible for this.
