Sweepstakes, Contests, and Giveaway Laws in Finland

In Finland, prize promotions are subject to several regulations, including the Consumer Code and the Lottery Act. Both competitions and prize promotions linked to chance are permitted, and as from 2011, also promotions involving an obligation to buy.

When holding a competition in Finland, special attention should be given to the methods of communicating the initiative (for which there are specific guidelines) and to privacy aspects.
