5. How to Enter: There are 2 ways to enter, and 2 ways to create a photo, see below:

During the Promotion Period, you may visit Coke.com/dasanisparkling and log into or create an Account to see a gallery of approved photos and all instructions for this Sweepstakes. You may follow the links and instructions to link your social media handles to your Account before participating or, if you are selected as a potential winner, you will need to do so before claiming your prize through your Account.

During the Promotion Period, take a photo of your favorite flavor of Dasani Sparkling, with or without you in the picture (your “Photo”). If you would like to enter without making a purchase, create a Photo that shows your love for Dasani Sparkling or reflects/indicates your favorite flavor of Dasani Sparkling (also referred to herein as, your “Photo”). You may include other people in the Photo, if you would like, if you have their permission to use their images in the Photo for this Sweepstakes. If anyone in your Photo is or appears to be a minor, you must have permission from his or her parent or legal guardian to include the image in your Photo. Then, tweet your Photo on Twitter or share your Photo on Instagram, either way being sure to include this hashtag: #DasaniSparklingContest (your “Submission”). Once your Submission is approved, you will receive 1 entry into the Sweepstakes drawing for the applicable Entry Period and 1 entry into the drawing for the Grand Prize.

a)     Twitter: Log into or create your Twitter account. Then, create and Tweet your Submission. Your account settings must be set to "unprotected" and/or "public" in order for your Tweets to be viewable by Sponsor and its agents. Creating a Twitter account is free, but is subject to its terms and conditions (https://twitter.com/tos). If you post updates to or receive updates from www.twitter.com via SMS from your wireless phone, message and data rates may apply. Please consult your wireless-service provider regarding its pricing plans.

b)    Instagram: Log into or create your Instagram account. Then create and post your Submission to your Instagram account. In order for your entry to be valid, your Instagram profile must be public and thus viewable by the Sponsor and its agents. If you do not have the Instagram App, you may download it through the application store on your mobile device.  Your post must be consistent with Instagram's terms (http://instagram.com/about/legal/terms/#). Posting a photo on Instagram requires a mobile device and message and data rates may apply.

  • The Submission must contain a relevant Photo and the promotional hashtag;
  • The Submission description, if any, must be in English; and
  • The Submission cannot have been submitted previously in a promotion of any kind.

Content Restrictions:

  • The Submission must not include any private information of a third party such as name, address, phone number, or email address;
  • The Submission must not contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights, including but not limited to privacy, publicity or intellectual property rights, or that constitutes copyright infringement;
  • The Submission must not feature brand names or trademarks other than those owned by Sponsor, which entrant has a limited license to use to create and share a Submission in this Sweepstakes;

To avoid the spam restrictions of Twitter and Instagram, each shared Submission should be unique.   

Posting or sharing a Submission using the promotion hashtag constitutes entrant’s consent to give Sponsor a royalty-free, irrevocable, transferable, assignable, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and display such Submission in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to incorporate it into other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, including for promotional or marketing purposes. If requested, entrant will sign any documentation that may be required for Sponsor or its designees to make use of the non-exclusive rights entrant is granting to use the Submission or any portion thereof. If your Submission is included in a gallery, if any, that is not an indication that you may be a potential prize winner, nor is it a guarantee that your Submission is eligible.

Limit: Up to 1 Grand Prize Sweepstakes entry per person per day and up to 1 Sweepstakes entry per Entry Period during the Promotion Period, regardless of method or combination of methods of entry.  Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address or Twitter or Instagram account.  Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries using multiple/different email addresses, identities, Twitter or Instagram accounts, registrations or logins, or any other methods will void that entrant’s entries and that entrant may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes.  Any use of robotic, repetitive, automatic, programmed or similar entry methods or agents (including, but not limited to, sweepstakes entry services) will void all entries by that entrant.  In the event of a dispute as to any online entry, the authorized account holder of the email address or Twitter or Instagram account used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. The "authorized account holder" is the natural person assigned a Twitter or Instagram account as provided by Twitter or Instagram (depending on method of entry).  Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holders.

 

6. Drawings: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the selection of the potential winners are final and binding.  On or about the dates set forth in the table above, Administrator will select the names of the potential winners in a random drawing of all eligible entries received for the applicable prize during the applicable Entry Period or, for the Grand Prize, the entire Promotion Period.  Non-winning entries will carry over into subsequent Entry Period drawings. The potential winners will be notified via the social media account used to enter. The odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the applicable Entry Period (as well as any that carried over from earlier drawings) or, for the Grand Prize, the entire Promotion Period.

 

7. Requirements of Potential Winners: Potential winners must continue to comply with the Official Rules. Winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. Each potential winner will be required to have or create an Account and to link his or her social media account to it in order to claim a prize.  If a potential winner entered through Instagram, he/she will be notified through Instagram via a comment on the Submission and/or direct message from Dasani with all of the instructions on how to claim his/her prize. If a potential winner entered through Twitter, he/she will be notified by a 2-step process. First, a Dasani agent will reply to the winner’s entry Tweet requesting that the potential winner “follow” @dasaniwater within 2 days of when the request was made. Then, a Dasani agent will send a direct message from @dasaniwater to the potential winner’s Twitter account used to enter the Sweepstakes with all of the instructions on how to claim his/her prize. Each potential winner will be required to create or log in to his or her Account, link his or her social media handles to the Account, and take the required steps to claim the prize through the Account within 5 days or forfeit the applicable prize. The potential Grand Prize winner also will be required to sign and return to Administrator, within 5 days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, a Declaration of Compliance, Liability & Publicity Release (except where prohibited) in order to claim his/her prize and to fulfill any such other requirements as determined by Administrator. If any potential winner cannot be contacted or fails to take all of the required steps to claim the prize, as applicable, he/she may be disqualified and forfeit the applicable prize. In the event that any potential winner cannot be contacted, forfeits the prize, or is disqualified for any reason, Administrator will select an alternate potential winner in a random drawing after the end of the Sweepstakes from among all remaining eligible entries, up to 3 alternates.  If the alternate potential winners are disqualified, the applicable prize will not be awarded. First Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 10 to 12 weeks after the conclusion of the Sweepstakes. Grand Prize winner will be contacted regarding prize fulfillment details within 4 – 5 weeks after confirmation at the end of the Sweepstakes.
