In cooperation with partner companies – hereinafter also referred to as partners – ehorses offers both registered and non-registered users the opportunity to participate in product tests.
The application and participation in a product test carried out by ehorses does not constitute any obligation to participate in further product tests. Participation in the product tests is free of charge.

1. application for product test participation
Participation in the product test is possible in the period named in the form. Participation is free of charge and independent of the purchase of goods or services from the organizer. ehorses and partners are not responsible for messages that are submitted too late or lost due to delays or malfunctions of the internet, for problems or technical faults with telephone, broadband or other networks, or for the non-arrival of messages.
Every natural person who is at least 16 years old is eligible to apply for participation in the product test. The application for the product test must be received within the period stated on the promotion page of the product test. The electronically recorded receipt of the mailing serves to verify compliance with the deadline. Submissions received after this deadline will not be taken into account when selecting the testers. The application for the product test is only possible on the promotion page. Applications submitted otherwise will not be considered. The employees of ehorses and the employees of the respective partner companies as well as their relatives are excluded from participation.
In order to apply for the product test, it is necessary that all personal details are truthful. In case of violation, the applicant may be excluded. Each applicant may only apply once for the product test. Multiple submissions will not be accepted. Participation via lottery associations or similar institutions is also not accepted.

2. data privacy
By applying to participate in a product test, you agree to the collection, processing and use of your personal data as described here for the purpose of market and opinion research.
Your personal data (name, age, telephone number, address, social media accounts and e-mail address) will only be collected by ehorses for this product test and will be passed on to the partner company of the test. The data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the selection for tester selection (e.g. for shipping the products or to service providers for statistical evaluation of the results).
Within the scope of statistical evaluations, the collected data will only be used anonymously. ehorses and the partner company commit themselves to delete name, address, telephone number and e-mail address after the evaluation of the test. Unless you separately agree to a further use of your data elsewhere (e.g. for sending the ehorses newsletter).

If you are selected as a product tester, you agree to the publication of your name in the advertising media used by ehorses and the partner company. This includes the announcement of the product tester on the promotion page as well as on the social media platforms of ehorses and the partner company.

4. selection of the testers
ehorses and the product test partner reserve the right to select the testers. There is neither a claim to participate in the product test nor to receive the test products.
