Terms and Conditions of Participation in "#travelingpumas Instagram" Contest

  • Written on:

Have PUMAs? Going places? Enter to win.

Chances are, wherever you go your shoes go too. So the next time you’re going places, do us a favor: take a photo of your PUMAs. It’s easy. First, go somewhere. Then, stand still. Take a photo of your shoes with some sort of background. Like the Colosseum. Or your local pub. Or a weird mark on the sidewalk that looks a bit like Munch’s “Scream.”

We won’t tell you how to make your PUMA-insta-art happen. We just want to see it. And heap accolades upon it. Share pictures of your PUMA shoes from all around the world with #travelingpumas. Every Friday, we'll select a winner from the tagged photos and the winner will receive a PUMA prize pack. The more creative, the better. Obviously.

Here are the rules:

7. Data protection information regarding the processing of personal data of the participants in the contest

7.1 The personal data collected by the organizer will be used for the sole purpose of prize delivery and will not be used for promotional purposes or distributed in any way. The following information is considered personal data within this meaning: first and last name, street, postal code, town, country, email address and phone number ("personal data").

7.3 The organizer will forward personal data only to service providers commissioned to conduct the contest ("contract data processors") in Germany and the USA. The USA is a country that does not guarantee a level of data protection commensurate with the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC.

All such contract data processors collect, process and use personal data only for and in accordance with the organizer's instructions.

7.4 The participant has the right to information without charge regarding the personal data stored about him/her by the organizer as well as to correction, blocking or deletion of this personal data.
