ARTICLE 1: Only the person to whom the invitation was addressed (by email, SMS or letter) shall be authorised to enter the premises where the competition is being held. The invitation is strictly for the person named therein and shall not be given to another person without the authorisation of the competition commissioner.
ARTICLE 2: No accompanying persons, whether minors or adults, shall be admitted to the room where the competition is taking place. Competition organisers reserve the right to refuse entry to any juror who does not follow this rule.
ARTICLE 3: We strongly recommend that you not drink during the tasting. In accordance with established practice, spittoons are provided for spitting out all or part of the sample. If this recommendation is not followed, the author of any damage or accident will be held responsible. The competition assumes no liability in this area.
ARTICLE 4: Jurors are not allowed to judge their own products. Extract from the rules and regulations: “... organisers […] will ask jury members to submit a solemn declaration indicating any direct or indirect ties they may have with any companies, establishments, professional organisations or associations whose activities, products or interests may be related to wines presented in the competition. The commissioner general has the right to disqualify any juror, if necessary, to avoid having a competitor judge his or her own products.” Disregard for this provision will be considered a fraudulent act.
ARTICLE 5: The competition recommends that participants in the tasting take out cancellation insurance for all travel-related reservations (hotel, transportation, etc.). If an edition of the Competition is cancelled for a reason that cannot be attributed to the Organiser, in the case of a force majeure as defined by the case-law of the the German court of Mainz, or for any other reason, the tasting participant cannot in any way hold the Competition responsible for any expenses incurred in view of participation in the Competition. Such expenses cannot be reimbursed.
ARTICLE 7: Leaving with samples, even open ones, is prohibited.
ARTICLE 8: Photos and videos: the juror grants Competition organisers, freely and without any financial compensation, the right to photograph and/or film her if they wish to do so, and to use these images on any supports, including advertisements, in Germany or abroad for any length of time.
