Participation in projects

A Pampers Squad project provides selected Pampers Squad members with products from Procter & Gamble for testing purposes.

The Squaddies shall test, evaluate and recommend the products. When referring products, the squad member must indicate that he/she is participating in a Pampers marketing project. The member should always openly express their opinion on the product. Criticism is expressly permitted. Further details are set out in the Terms and Conditions of participation for each project, which in case of doubt take precedence over these general Terms and Conditions.

There is no legal entitlement to participate in a specific project. Participants in the project are selected by Procter & Gamble on the basis of their profile data, interests and inclinations. Legal recourse is excluded.

Participation in a project requires that you are of legal age.

Procter & Gamble reserve the right to exclude members from a project if they violate the terms of use or the participation conditions of the project. Goods or objects received by the Member as part of a project constitute unsaleable samples. The sale of these products, in particular via platforms such as eBay, is prohibited. It is pointed out that the unauthorised resale may violate the trademark rights of the advertising company because the advertising company does not market these test products for resale.
