1. Scope of application
By applying to register as a participant in the Heinemann & Me programme, the participant recognizes these general conditions of participation. Any natural person who is 18 or over may participate. Gebr. Heinemann employees and anyone working for Gebr. Heinemann on a short-term basis, such as promoters, are excluded from participating. All airport and airline employees and persons with an airport staff pass are also excluded.
2. Subject matter of the Heinemann & Me programme
The participation in the Heinemann & Me programme is free of charge. Participants in the Heinemann & Me programme receive special benefits when shopping in the stores of Gebr. Heinemann or their associates in the form of discounts or extras, or the benefits of preferential services, information and similar advantages. The individual benefits offered by Gebr. Heinemann and their associates vary locally, are of limited duration and, when taken advantage of, are subject to further conditions. The discounts are personal and are therefore not transferable. Gebr. Heinemann and/or their associates will inform participants of the currently applicable benefits and how to take advantage of them offline or online. The Heinemann & Me card is only valid when signed by the cardholder. This customer card remains the property of Gebr. Heinemann; it is non-transferable and must be returned on termination of the contractual relationship. If the participant uses a service from one of Heinemann & Me's associates, the associate will be the participant’s sole contracting partner in relation to this service and the privilege granted in relation to it. In the event of any defects in the service provided by an associate and the privilege granted in relation to it, the participant will have no claim against Gebr. Heinemann.
3. Changes to the conditions of participation and to added value
Gebr. Heinemann reserves the right to change these general conditions of participation at any time, in particular in order to improve implementation or to prevent abuses. The participant will be informed of any changes to the general conditions of participation in writing. If the participant does not object in writing within six weeks of receipt of the notification or if, after these six weeks, he/she uses his/her customer card, he/she will be deemed to have accepted the changes. Gebr. Heinemann will alert the participant to this separately in the notification of changes to the conditions of participation. Gebr. Heinemann is entitled to change or stop the Heinemann & Me programme if there is a serious reason for doing so.
4. Termination, changes, information

Please inform Gebr. Heinemann of changes to the name, address and email address of the participant in writing (letter, email or fax) or by telephone so that we can continue to provide you with the services of the Heinemann & Me programme. For security reasons, we shall only respond to information requests from the participant if these requests are received in writing.
