ELIGIBILITY: OPEN ONLY TO LEGAL RESIDENTS OF THE FIFTY (50) UNITED STATES AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. Employees (and their immediate families (spouse, and parents, children and siblings and their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside) and those living in their same households, whether or not related) of Zola, Inc. (“Sponsor”) and its parents, affiliates, subsidiaries and advertising and promotion agencies are not eligible to enter or win. By participating, entrants agree to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, which are binding and final on matters relating to this sweepstakes (the “Promotion”). This Promotion is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws. This Promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Instagram.

HOW TO ENTER: In connection with the Promotion, Sponsor will publish an Instagram in-feed post promoting the Promotion on its Instagram account on or about September 18, 2023 (“Sponsor Instagram Post”). An eligible entrant may enter the Promotion between 12:00 PM Eastern Time (“ET”) on September 18, 2023 and 11:59 PM ET on September 20, 2023 (“Entry Period”) by taking both of the following steps: (1) comment on the Sponsor Instagram Post and share the wedding code to their public Zola Registry. Submission of a Standard Entry requires a valid Zola account, including a publicly accessible registry. For an additional chance to win, share Sponsor’s Instagram in-feed post regarding the Promotion during the Entry Period on your own Instagram account during the time such Instagram post is live on Sponsor’s Instagram account and tag @zola (“Instagram Story Entry”). For the avoidance of doubt, you must be the valid accountholder of the Instagram account used to post the Instagram Story Entry, and Zola reserves the right to request evidence of the same. You may be required to set your Instagram account privacy settings to “public” for the Instagram Story Entry to be viewable by Sponsor. For an alternative method of entry (AMOE), submit your entry by using this form (“Form Entry”) Entries made via the form (each, a “Form Entry”) must be received during the Entry Period to be considered. Limit one (1) Instagram Comment Entry and one (1) Instagram Story Entry (or alternatively, two (2) Form Entries) per person; additional entries received from any Instagram handle, person or email address via the form will be void. Entries generated by script, bot, macro or other automated means are void. All entries become the property of Sponsor.

DRAWING: The potential winners will be selected in a random drawing held on or about September 20, 2023, from all eligible entries received. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. The potential winners will be notified by Instagram direct message, as applicable, or by email (if entrant entered via the AMOE), and the winners may be required to execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability and, unless prohibited, Publicity Release. If a potential winner does not respond to the initial notification within the time period stated in the initial notification, does not return all required documentation within the time period stated, or if a prize notification or prize is returned as undeliverable, or such potential winner is not in compliance with these rules, the prize will be forfeited and, at Sponsor’s sole discretion, an alternate winner selected. Up to three (3) alternate winners will be selected for any prize, after which prize will remain unawarded.

PRIZES (TEN): Ten (10) winners will receive the following grand prize: One Hundred Dollars ($100.00) in Zola Credits, Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) One Hundred Dollars ($100.00). Total ARV of all prizes: One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00). Zola Credits will expire 365 days following the date on which they are issued to the applicable winner and will not be re-issued if not used by such date. You must have a valid Zola account to redeem the Zola Credits. Zola Credits cannot be redeemed or used for cash, digital Zola gift cards, honeymoon funds or other cash gifts or be applied towards items purchased from another website. In addition, Zola Credits cannot be retroactively applied to past orders. Zola Credits may be subject to such other terms and conditions as are determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Prizes are awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied. All federal, state and local taxes, if any, and all other costs and expenses associated with prize acceptance and use not specified herein as being provided are the sole responsibility of the winner. Winners may not substitute, assign or transfer prize, but Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to substitute a prize (or portion thereof) of comparable or greater value. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. All prize details are at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Limit one (1) prize per household.

PUBLICITY GRANT: Each winner, by acceptance of prize, except where legally prohibited, grants permission for Sponsor and its designees to use his/her/their name, address (city and state), photograph, voice and/or other likeness and prize information for advertising, trade and promotional purposes, in any manner, in all media now known or hereafter devised, worldwide in perpetuity, without additional compensation or notification to, or permission from, such winner.

Should any portion of the Promotion be, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, compromised by virus, worms, bugs, non-authorized human intervention or other causes which, in the sole opinion of the Sponsor, corrupt or impair the administration, security, fairness or proper play, or submission of entries, Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion to suspend, modify or terminate the Promotion and, if terminated, at its discretion, select the potential winners from all eligible, non-suspect entries received prior to action taken or as otherwise deemed fair and appropriate by Sponsor. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of a potential winner, the authorized account holder of the Instagram account or email address used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. A potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Entries specifying an invalid, non-working, or inactive email address or Instagram handle will be disqualified and ineligible to win.
