#SHAREYOURSHOW is a cross-media event that gives artists in the performing arts and athletes with a focus on artistry, dance and creative sports – as registered participants – the chance to present themselves to the public and take part in competitions (e.g. "Community Award") within the framework of predefined voting procedures.

For better readability, the language forms male, female and diverse (m/f/d) are not used simultaneously. All personal terms (e.g. "participant") apply equally to all genders.

The following provisions are a translation of the German-language Terms of Use ("Teilnahme- und Nutzungsbedingungen") and are for information purposes only. Only the German-language version of the Terms of Use is legally binding.


I. Scope of application, changes to the conditions


1.

2. By using the Services, you agree to the Terms. This applies regardless of the way in which you use the Services, i.e. in particular regardless of whether you participate in #SHAREYOURSHOW as a participant, post and/or retrieve content of any kind, or whether you evaluate the content of participants as a visitor to the SHAREYOURSHOW websites as part of a competition. If you do not wish to be bound by the Terms, you may not use the Services.

3. Insofar as the Services are offered and used on internet platforms operated by third parties (such as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, etc.), the respective terms of use and other provisions of the respective third party providers for the relevant platform shall apply in addition to the Terms, to which you as a user of the relevant platform must agree separately in each case.

4. SANOSTRA reserves the right to change the Terms at any time for the future. You will be notified of changes in an appropriate place (e.g. by notices or links on the SHAREYOURSHOW websites). If you do not object to a change within two weeks or with use of the Services, whichever is earlier, such changes will be deemed accepted.

5. Legal declarations by SANOSTRA (e.g. changes to the Terms, confirmations, etc.) may be made to participants by e-mail and are deemed to have been received if they were sent by SANOSTRA by e-mail and receipt can be assumed under normal circumstances.

2. All persons of full age or minors over the age of 16 with a declaration of consent from their legal representatives are entitled to register as participants. In the event that a minor person over the age of 16 goes through the registration process, this registration is pending invalid until the approval of the legal representative, unless the requirements of § 110 BGB (German Civil Code) are met.

3. Once you have registered, you will receive access to a user account and to further functions of the SHAREYOURSHOW websites.

4. You warrant that all information provided during the registration process is true, complete and current.

8. Participation is possible both individually, i.e. by you as a registered participant, and together with other persons (e.g. as a duo or group). In the case of participation by more than one person, registration is carried out by you as the registered participant (minimum age: 16 years) and you provide the additional persons. In the event that the additional persons provided are minors at the time of registration, participation requires the consent of the legal representatives of these minors. In these cases, the registration as a participant is pending invalid until the approval of the respective legal representative(s), unless the requirements of § 110 BGB (German Civil Code) are met.
