Sweepstakes, Contests, and Giveaway Laws in Czech Republic

Organising prize competitions is permitted in the Czech Republic, but local regulations impose particular bureaucratic requirements that must be fulfilled to avoid incurring penalties.
For example, prize competitions based on chance can only be organised with an appropriate licence, for which an application must be made to the competent authorities at least 15 days in advance.
There are also restrictions on the value of prizes and the total amount of prize money.
Special attention is also paid to the protection of participants' personal data, which must be processed in compliance with the country’s currently applicable privacy regulations.
