4. TO ENTER: No purchase or consumption of beverage alcohol is required to participate, nor will purchase or consumption of beverage alcohol increase your chances of winning a prize. To enter, take an original photo of your Mionetto Prosecco Cocktail or anything else that shows how you “brunch better”, and post the photo to your personal Instagram account during the Entry Period, including the hashtag #brunchbettercontest and mention @mionettoproseccousa in your post. There is a limit of one (1) entry per person, per week (see Section 6 below for the start and end dates and times of each week). Each entry must be different, and must meet all requirements. See Section 5 below for important additional entry requirements. Further, note that your entry will not be considered successfully submitted if your Instagram account settings prevent Sponsor from seeing your entry (i.e. your account must be set to “public” or a similar setting that will allow Sponsor to see your entry). 

Any attempt by a person to use multiple accounts or identities to gain more entries than permitted by these Official Rules shall result in disqualification at the discretion of Sponsor or its designee(s). Sponsor is under no obligation to correspond about entries, nor is Sponsor required to acknowledge its receipt of entries. Proof of submission of entry does not constitute proof of receipt of entry. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of the entrant associated with any entry, the authorized account holder of the Instagram account associated with the entry, at time of submission, will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned to Instagram account by Instagram. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor's satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. In addition to compliance with these Official Rules, participation must also comply with the terms of service at www.instagram.com/about/legal/terms. Normal Internet access and usage charges imposed by your online service will apply. If you participate from your mobile phone, such activity will be subject to the charges pursuant to your wireless service provider’s rate plan. You further understand that by participating via mobile phone, if you are a potential winner, the Sponsor may contact you via mobile phone, which will be subject to the charges pursuant to your wireless service provider’s rate plan. Please consult your wireless service provider for more information. Entrants are solely responsible for any related equipment and Internet access charges, if any. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same Instagram account. It is your sole responsibility to notify the Sponsor in writing if you change your Instagram account. Entries will not be judged; see Section 6 for information on random winner selection.

5. ADDITIONAL ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: Any elements that appear in an entry photo must not: (a) include an image of any person that is (or appears to be) under 21 years of age; (b) depict persons consuming alcoholic beverages rapidly, excessively, involuntarily, as part of a drinking game or as a result of a dare; (c) depict persons conducting themselves in an inappropriate manner; (d) depict or allude to the overconsumption of alcohol; or (e) contain material that would imply that the consumption of alcoholic beverages is acceptable before or while operating machinery, driving a vehicle or undertaking any other activity that requires a high degree of alertness or physical coordination. Any elements that appear in an entry photo, including, without limitation, brand names, logos, or images, must be either: (i) entirely original, created by the entrant; (ii) property of the Sponsor (the “Provided Materials”); or (iii) in the public domain. Sponsor grants to entrants a limited revocable, non-sub-licensable license to use the Provided Materials for the sole purpose of creating an entry, if an entrant chooses to do so. Use of Provided Materials is not required for entry, nor will it affect an entrant’s chances of winning. In addition, entrant recognizes that all of the right, title, and interest in the Provided Materials as well as all derivative works created using the Provided Materials (including an entry) shall vest exclusively in Sponsor, and entrant will not have or take any action that might harm or adversely affect such rights. No right, title, or interest in and to the Provided Materials except for the limited license granted to entrant in these Official Rules is transferred or created.  

Use of any prohibited elements in an entry photo may result in disqualification of the applicable entry, in the Sponsor’s sole discretion. Entry photos must not contain personally identifiable information such as addresses or phone numbers. Entries must not contain the name or logo of any alcohol beverage wholesaler or retailer (for example, bars, liquor stores, or restaurants which hold a liquor license). Entrants must not engage in any violent, dangerous, or illegal behavior in creating an entry. Entries must not contain inappropriate content, including but not limited to vulgarity, obscenity, lewd, pornographic or violent material, or materials which promote hate or violence. Entries must not defame, misrepresent or contain disparaging remarks about Sponsor or its products, or other people, products or companies. Entries must not defame or invade the privacy or publicity rights of any person, living or deceased, or otherwise infringe upon a person's personal or proprietary rights. Entries that do not include all required information and do not adhere to the foregoing and following requirements or are deemed to be immoral, obscene, profane or not in keeping with Sponsor's image (all as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) will be considered void.

Failure to provide said proof may result in disqualification of the entry from the Sweepstakes. Sponsor's determination as to whether any entry potentially violates the rights of any third party is final. Submitting an entry that is copyrighted by another individual will make you responsible for any legal action the legal copyright holder might take against you. 

By participating in the Sweepstakes, you grant the Sponsor and its affiliated companies the unconditional (subject only to any applicable rights of Instagram) and perpetual right and permission to reproduce, encode, store, copy, transmit, publish, post, broadcast, display, publicly perform, edit, adapt, modify, create derivative works of, exhibit, and otherwise use the entry or part thereof (with or without using your name) in any media throughout the world for any purpose, without limitation, and without additional review, compensation, or approval from you or any other party. Without limiting the foregoing, Sponsor reserves the right to post an online gallery of entries selected in its sole discretion, or to re-post any entries selected in its sole discretion on a social media website. Should Sponsor edit your entry for purposes of re-use, you are not relieved from responsibility for compliance with these Official Rules. You agree that, upon request by the Sponsor, you will sign a copyright assignment. By participating, you further agree not to instigate, support, maintain, or authorize any action, claim, or lawsuit against the Released Parties (as defined in Section 8 below), or any other person or entity, on the grounds that any use of the entry, or any derivative works, infringes any of your rights, including, without limitation, copyrights and moral rights. You further acknowledge that, unless specified otherwise herein, the Sponsor is in no way obligated to broadcast, publish or use your entry in any way. Nothing herein shall constitute an employment, joint venture, or partnership relationship between you and the Sponsor. In no way are you to be construed as the agent or to be acting as the agent of the Sponsor. 

On or about each of the Drawing Dates listed above, an independent judging organization will conduct a random drawing to select one (1) potential Weekly Prize winner from among the eligible entries received for the applicable Week of the Sweepstakes. Eligible entries received for a particular Week will NOT be carried forward into any subsequent weekly drawing(s), except in the following circumstance: if no eligible entries are received during a particular Week, Sponsor’s independent judging organization reserves the right in its sole discretion to select that Week’s potential winner in a random drawing from among either: [a] all eligible non-winning entries received prior to that Week; or [b] all eligible non-winning entries received during the next Week which has eligible entries. Each Weekly Prize consists of a “Drinkstagram” kit of coasters, stirrers, and decorations, with an approximate retail value of $250. For the avoidance of doubt, the prize does not include any beverage alcohol. Any prize details not specified herein will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. See Section 7 below for additional prize restrictions and winner notification details. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received for each Week. Entry photos will not be judged, and winner determination is not affected by the quality of the photo associated with any eligible entry. Limit one (1) prize per person, family, or household, for the duration of the Sweepstakes.

7. WINNER NOTIFICATION/PRIZE RESTRICTIONS: The names of potential winners and/or their social media “handles” may be announced online prior to verification; however any such announcement is not a guarantee of eligibility. Each potential winner will be notified via a private message or comment on Instagram, to verify his/her eligibility and ability to accept the prize, and to obtain his/her complete contact information. Entrants must confirm that their social media notification settings are turned on, such that they would be notified in a timely fashion of an attempt to contact them via the applicable social media platform for this purpose. Any such message, comment, or email will instruct the potential winner to reply within three (3) full business days (measured in the local time zone) after the time that the notification message or comment was sent/posted. Potential winner must reply as instructed to identify him/herself, confirm his/her eligibility and ability to accept the prize, and provide his/her complete contact information within such three (3) full business day period, or he/she will be disqualified. In Sponsor’s sole discretion, a potential winner may only be notified one time as set forth above for attempted prize notification. The potential winner may subsequently be required to complete a declaration of eligibility, a liability release, a copyright assignment, and (where legal) a publicity release, and any other releases or documentation deemed necessary for Sponsor’s intended use of the potential winner’s entry, which must be returned within the time period specified by Sponsor at the time of such request. Proof of identity, age, and legal residence (in the form of a copy of government-issued photo identification) may be required to claim a prize. Any winner or potential winner may be disqualified in Sponsor’s sole discretion if: (a) he/she fails to reply or to provide any required information or properly completed documents within the required time period; (b) he/she fails to comply with any of the terms of these Official Rules; or (c) any prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable. In the event of disqualification of a winner, at Sponsor’s sole discretion, the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner selected from among the remaining applicable eligible entries via the means of winner determination described herein, pending verification of eligibility. If any prize remains unclaimed after three (3) potential winners have been notified for that prize, the prize may remain unawarded, in Sponsor’s sole discretion. No responsibility is assumed by Sponsor for any incorrect or missing social media account information, prize claim information, postal address, email address or phone number associated with an entry/prize claim, or for any change of address, email, social media account or phone number of a participant. Any prize details not specified will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. No prize transfer. Unless otherwise specified herein, no prize substitution except at Sponsor’s sole discretion due to unavailability, in which case a prize of comparable or greater value will be awarded. All other costs and expenses associated with acceptance and use of a prize not specified herein as being awarded are the sole responsibility of the applicable winner. Sponsor will not replace any lost, damaged or stolen prizes. All taxes (including without limitation Federal, state and local taxes) in connection with a prize, and the reporting consequence thereof, are the sole responsibility of the applicable winner. Sponsor makes no representations regarding the tax liability associated with any prize. Prizes are awarded as-is and without warranty of any kind, implied or express. Winners should expect to receive their prizes within approximately 4 to 8 weeks following winner verification. Prizes will only be shipped to a physical address (no P.O. Boxes permitted) in the 50 United States or Washington, DC. Under no circumstances will alcoholic beverages be provided as part of a prize.
