to incur any and all charges demanded by your wireless carrier. The 2-way text-
messaging-capable device (“Device”) that is used must be capable of sending and
receiving text messages. Entrants should check their Device’s features to see if they have
that capability and check the Device manual for specific use instructions. Entry via text
messaging may be limited and may not be available through all wireless carriers or on all
handsets. Supported carriers include AT&T , T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, UScellular,

Mobile Terms and Conditions, which can be viewed by visiting

Limit: 1 entry per person per day during the Promotion Period. Multiple entrants are not
permitted to share the same email address or Device. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain
more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses,
identities, Devices, 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 mailed-in entry, the authorized account holder of the email address used
to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural
person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider
or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated
with the submitted address. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being an
authorized account holder.
6. Drawing: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the
selection of the potential winners are final and binding. On or about October 11, 2021,
Administrator will select the names of the potential winners in a random drawing of all
eligible entries received during the Promotion Period. The odds of winning a prize depend
on the number of eligible entries received during the 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 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 fails to provide a Declaration of
Compliance, Liability & Publicity Release or provide any other requested information within
the required time period, he/she may be disqualified and forfeit the applicable prize. In the
event that any potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to complete the Declaration or
provide any additional information in the required time frame, forfeits the prize, or is
disqualified for any reason, Administrator will select an alternate potential winner in a
random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries, up to 3 alternates. If the
alternate potential winners are disqualified, the applicable prize will not be awarded. Prizes
will be fulfilled approximately 4 to 6 weeks after winner confirmation is complete.

consent for Sponsor and its designees to use entrant’s name, likeness, prize information,
city and state of residence video, voice, any comments, testimonials or other feedback
related to prize or Sweepstakes experience, whether written or oral, for promotional
purposes in any media without further consideration.
10. General Conditions: In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the
Sweepstakes is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but, not limited to, fraud,
outbreak of widespread illness, pandemic, or other similar occurrence, civil unrest, virus or
other technical problem, the Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either: (a) suspend the
Sweepstakes to address the impairment and then resume the Sweepstakes in a manner
that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; or (b) cancel the Sweepstakes and
award the prizes in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the
time of the impairment. The Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify
any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the
Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of this or any other promotion,
or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to undermine
the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law,
and, should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages
from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. The Sponsor’s failure to
enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
11. Release and Limitations of Liability: Except where prohibited, by participating in the
Sweepstakes, entrants agree to release and hold harmless The Coca-Cola Company,
Coca-Cola bottlers, Merkle Inc., Slim Chickens and their respective parents, subsidiaries,
affiliates, promotional partners, prize partners, agents, agencies, franchise owners and
associates and the officers, directors and employees of them (the “Released Parties”) from
and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in the Sweepstakes or
receipt or use of any prize, including, but not limited to: (a) unauthorized human intervention
in the Sweepstakes; (b) technical errors related to computers, servers, providers, printers
or telephone or network lines; (c) printing errors or human error; (d) errors in the
administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; (e) late, lost, or
undeliverable mail; or (f) injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused,
directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or
receipt of any prize. Entrant further agrees that in any cause of action, the Released
Parties’ liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Sweepstakes
and in no event shall the Released Parties be liable for attorney’s fees. Entrant waives the
right to claim any damages whatsoever, including, but not limited to, punitive,
consequential, direct, or indirect damages. If, for any reason, an entrant’s entry is
confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted,
entrant’s sole remedy is another Sweepstakes entry, if it is possible. If the Sweepstakes,
or any part of it, is discontinued for any reason, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may elect
to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of
discontinuance for any prize offered herein. No more than the stated number of prizes will
be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other
reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth herein to be available
and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a
random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.
12. Dispute Resolution: You agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen
or may arise relating in any way to or arising out of the Sweepstakes, the Official Rules, or
the Sponsor’s and/or Administrator’s Privacy Policy (including Mobile Terms and
Conditions) will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Dispute
Resolution section. Please read this section carefully. It affects your rights and will have a
substantial impact on how claims you and we have against each other are resolved.
You agree that whenever you have a disagreement with Administrator or Sponsor arising
out of, connected to, or in any way related to the Sweepstakes, the Official Rules, or the
Sponsor’s and/or Administrator’s Privacy Policy (including Mobile Terms and Conditions),
you will send a written notice to the Administrator (“Demand”). You agree that the
requirements of this Dispute Resolution section will apply even to disagreements that may
have arisen before you accepted these Official Rules or the Sponsor’s and/or
Administrator’s Privacy Policy (including Mobile Terms and Conditions). You must send the
Demand to the following address (the “Notice Address”): Legal Department, Merkle Inc.,
3000 Town Center, Suite 2100, Southfield, MI 48075. You agree that you will not take any
legal action, including filing a lawsuit or demanding arbitration, until 10 business days after
you send a Demand. If the disagreement stated in the Demand is not resolved to your
satisfaction within 10 business days after it is received, and you intend on taking legal
action, you agree that you will file a demand for arbitration with the American Arbitration
Association (the “Arbitrator”). This arbitration provision limits the ability of you,
Administrator, and Sponsor to litigate claims in court and you, Administrator, and Sponsor
each agree to waive your respective rights to a jury trial or a state or federal judge. You
agree that you will not file any lawsuit against Administrator or Sponsor in any state or
federal court. You agree that if you do sue in state or federal court, and Administrator or
Sponsor brings a successful motion to compel arbitration, you must pay all fees and costs
incurred by Administrator and Sponsor in court, including reasonable attorney’s fees. For
any such filing of a demand for arbitration, you must effect proper service under the rules
of the Arbitrator and notice to the Notice Address may not be sufficient. If, for any reason,
the American Arbitration Association is unable to conduct the arbitration, you may file your
case with any national arbitration company. The Arbitrator shall apply the AAA Consumer
Arbitration Rules effective September 1, 2014 (and as may be amended) and as modified
by the agreement to arbitrate in this Dispute Resolution section. You agree that the
Arbitrator will have sole and exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute you have with
Administrator or Sponsor. The Federal Arbitration Act allows for the enforcement of
arbitration agreements and governs the interpretation and enforcement of the agreement
to arbitrate. The place of arbitration shall be Oakland County, Michigan.
You agree that you will not file a class action or collective action against Administrator or
Sponsor, and that you will not participate in a class action or collective action against them.
You agree that you will not join your claims to those of any other person. Notwithstanding
any other provision in the Official Rules, or the Sponsor’s and/or Administrator’s Privacy
Policy (including Mobile Terms and Conditions), if this class action waiver is invalidated,
then the agreement to arbitrate is null and void, as though it were never entered into, and
any arbitration dispute at that time will be dismissed without prejudice and may be refiled
in a court. Under no circumstances do you, Administrator, or Sponsor agree to class or
collective procedures in arbitration or the joinder of claims in arbitration. Administrator and
Sponsor agree that we will submit all disputes with you to arbitration before the Arbitrator.
All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and
enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant,
Administrator, and Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, or any claim or dispute
that has arisen or may arise between you, Administrator and Sponsor, shall be governed
by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Michigan without giving
effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules.
This arbitration provision shall survive conclusion, modification or termination of the
Sweepstakes and suspension, revocation, closure, modification, or amendments to the
Official Rules, the Administrator’s Mobile Terms and Conditions, and any aspect of the
relationship of the parties relating to or arising from participation in the Sweepstakes.
