Entry, and any claim for compensation whatsoever in connection therewith.
Such waiver shall include any claim for infringement of any so-called
“Moral Right,” “Droit Moral” or similar right or interest.
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 Promotion or the
Official Rules 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
Promotion or the Official Rules, 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. 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

any reason, the American Arbitration Association is unable to conduct the
arbitration, you may file your case with any national arbitration company.

arbitrate in this Dispute Resolution section. You agree that the Arbitrator
will have sole and exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute you have with

enforcement of arbitration agreements and governs the interpretation and
enforcement of the agreement to arbitrate.
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, 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.

in accordance with, the laws of the State of Missouri without giving effect
to any choice of law or conflict of law rules. The place of arbitration
