    A comment may include more than three (3) tagged friends, provided that all such tagged friends  meet all the criteria set forth above. A comment which violates this requirement will not result in entry.

    Posting of comment on one’s private Instagram page (or in any place other than on @SeedlipDrinks or @mindyweiss in response to the Sweepstakes message) will not result in entry.

     

    Should a comment include any content in addition to tagging friends: Any content, material or information included in comment shall not be confidential, proprietary or trade secret. Prospective entrant represents and warrants that such additional content is his/her/their sole, original work and that it does not infringe upon the rights of any other party, including but not limited to any intellectual property, trade secret or other proprietary rights of any other party.* No additional content shall (a) reference/depict persons consuming alcoholic beverages; (b) reference/depict persons conducting themselves in an inappropriate manner; (c) contain material that would state or 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; (d) contain any material that would degrade or demean the human form, image or status of women, men or the members of any group based on race, religion, ethnic background, sexual orientation or any other minority status; or (e) include a reference to or depiction of any person who is or may be under 21 years of age. Additional content must also be relevant to the Sweepstakes theme of friends to be invited to a soiree featuring Seedlip non-alcoholic spirits.  Obscene, provocative, lewd or otherwise objectionable content or that which reflects poorly on the Seedlip brand as well as content which disparages, denigrates or insults Ms. Mindy Weiss/Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc. is  prohibited and will not result in Sweepstakes entry (even if person posting such comment is eligible for the Sweepstakes and tagged at least three (3) friends in accordance with these Official Rules) and the determination of the appropriateness of any additional content is at the sole discretion of the Sponsor and/or the independent third party judging organization (“Judges”).  Should Sponsor or Judges identify any comments which are violative of the preceding requirements, Sponsor and Judges (as well as Ms. Mindy Weiss/Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc.) each reserve the right to petition Meta Platforms, Inc. to remove such comments from the Instagram social media platform and to otherwise take any and all necessary and appropriate actions so as to protect their respective legal rights (this is in addition to the person posting such comment not being entered in the Sweepstakes; however, even if his/her/their entry is disqualified, such entrant may still function as a tagged friend of other entrant[s]).  

     

    * Prospective entrant further represents and warrants that his/her identification of tagged friends in his/her comment/entry was with the prior consent of each such tagged friend and that such identification therefore does not infringe upon the rights of any tagged friend.

     

    ANY ADDITIONAL CONTENT POSTED BY PROSPECTIVE ENTRANTS AS PART OF THEIR COMMENTS REPRESENTS SOLELY THE VIEWS/OPINIONS OF THE PROSPECTIVE ENTRANTS THEMSELVES AND DOES NOT REFLECT THE VIEWS/OPINIONS OF SPONSOR OR MS. MINDY WEISS/MINDY WEISS PARTY CONSULTANTS, INC. IN ANY MANNER. SPONSOR AND MS. MINDY WEISS/MINDY WEISS PARTY CONSULTANTS, INC. WILL NOT REVIEW ANY COMMENT PRIOR TO THE POSTING OF SAME BY PROSPECTIVE ENTRANTS AND BOTH EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY IN CONJUNCTION THEREWITH.

     

    One (1) entry per person. A person may enter the Sweepstakes him/herself as well as being a tagged friend of one (1) or more other entrants. Commenting more than once, use of multiple Instagram accounts or any other method to violate the preceding entry limit will result in disqualification of such person with all his/her/their entries being void; however, even though he/she/they has been disqualified, such entrant may still function as a tagged friend of other entrant(s). A given Instagram account may only be used by one (1) person to post a comment and enter the Sweepstakes and/or to function as a tagged friend of other entrant(s).  

     

    Sponsor is not responsible for telephone or cell phone service disruptions or other equipment or service issues that might affect a person's ability to comment on the Sweepstakes message (or to be included as a tagged friend of another in his/her/their comment on the Sweepstakes message, as the case may be) and qualify or the ability of the Sponsor to notify the winner. Sponsor assumes no responsibility for lost, late, damaged, misdirected, illegible, corrupted, jumbled, garbled, incomplete, inaccessible, improperly recorded, unrecorded or incorrect entries or other Sweepstakes materials, all of which are void.  Facsimiles or mechanical reproductions will not be accepted. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Any acknowledgment of receipt of entry, including any reply comment posted by Sponsor on @SeedlipDrinks or by Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc. on @mindyweiss does not constitute any representation of eligibility for the Sweepstakes nor is it otherwise binding upon Sponsor.

     

    III. Prize. One (1) Prize of a $5000 gift card which may be used to throw a soiree or otherwise (gift card is subject to terms and conditions of use of issuer; issuer will be chosen by Sponsor in its sole discretion; gift card to be awarded in physical form) and a thirty (30) minute consultation with wedding planner Mindy Weiss conducted via video teleconference service provider of Sponsor’s sole choosing.† Approximate Retail Value of Prize: $10000.

    • The agenda and content for the consultation will be determined by Sponsor and Ms. Mindy Weiss/Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc. While Sponsor and Ms. Mindy Weiss/Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc. will take into consideration the winner’s suggestions and input, Sponsor and Ms. Mindy Weiss/Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc. shall have final approval as to the agenda and content of the consultation.
    • The consultation is subject to the standard terms and conditions of Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc. governing its consultation services.
    • If duration of consultation is less than thirty (30) minutes, the entire liability of Sponsor and Ms. Mindy Weiss/Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc. will be limited to the actual duration of the consultation and the award of the gift card element of the prize.
    • Consultation is for the winner alone. Winner CANNOT invite guests to consultation. WITHOUT IN ANY WAY LIMITING THE FOREGOING, IT IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF WINNER TO ASSURE THAT NO PERSONS UNDER THE AGE OF 21 HAVE ACCESS TO THE CONSULTATION. WINNER IS THEREFORE CAUTIONED TO ACCESS VIDEO TELECONFERENCE IN A PRIVATE, SECURE LOCATION.  
    • Winner understands and agrees that Sponsor may record consultation for possible use for advertising and promotional purposes (the “Recording”). Winner grants to Sponsor and its designees (including Ms. Mindy Weiss/Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc.) the right to use the Recording, worldwide in any media now known or hereafter developed, including but not limited to the world wide web, at any time or times for advertising and promotional purposes without additional consideration. However, winner is PROHIBITED from making his/her/their own recordings of consultation without the prior written consent of Sponsor and Ms. Mindy Weiss/Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc. (and such consent may be granted or withheld without liability of any kind).
    • If Ms. Mindy Weiss is not available to conduct the consultation for any reason, the liability of Sponsor and Ms. Mindy Weiss/Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc. shall be limited to award of consultation for the winner with another designated representative of Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc. of similar experience as Ms. Weiss as well as award of the gift card element of the prize.

In the event of winner’s expulsion from consultation, winner will forfeit the prize in its entirety, with Sponsor and Ms. Mindy Weiss/Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc. having no liability in conjunction therewith under any legal theory; however, prize forfeiture shall NOT represent the exclusive remedy available to Sponsor and Ms. Mindy Weiss/Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, Inc. under such circumstances.

The preceding includes but is not limited to costs of software, hardware and Internet connection.
