DISPUTE RESOLUTION; MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER:
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY OTHERWISE HAVE.
IT PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF
COURT TRIALS AND CLASS ACTIONS. ARBITRATION IS MORE INFORMAL THAN A LAWSUIT IN
COURT, USES A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY, AND DISCOVERY IS
MORE LIMITED. ARBITRATION IS FINAL AND BINDING AND SUBJECT TO LIMITED REVIEW BY A
COURT. THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THESE TERMS.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISION (EXCEPT THE
CLASS ACTION WAIVER AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER) WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS OF ACCEPTANCE
OF THESE TERMSS, IF YOU FOLLOW THE PROCEDURES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION.
OTHERWISE, YOU WILL BE BOUND TO SETTLE ANY DISPUTES YOU MAY HAVE WITH BP
THROUGH THE FOLLOWING DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURES.
YOU AND BP AGREE TO ARBITRATE – RATHER THAN LITIGATE IN COURT – any and all claims or
disputes between us (including any parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors,
employees, or agents of BP), that are connected to, arise out of, or in any way relate to these
Terms. Notwithstanding this agreement to arbitrate, you and bp may bring appropriate claims
against each other in small claims court, if the claims fall within the small claims court’s
jurisdiction, or before the Federal Communications Commission, the relevant state public
utilities commission, or any other federal, state, or local government agency authorized by law
to hear the claims.
Opt Out: You may opt out of this dispute resolution provision (except for the class action waiver
and jury trial waiver contained below) by notifying bp in writing of that intent within thirty (30)
days after acceptance of these Terms by sending a letter stating that you are opting out of this
dispute resolution provision to BP via U.S. mail to 1500 Valley Rd, Wayne, NJ 07470. Exercising
this right, should you choose to do so, will not affect any of the terms of your agreement with
bp. If you opt out of the dispute resolution provision, that opt out will remain in effect if bp
modifies this section in the future.
Class Action Waiver: You and bp agree that all claims or disputes between you and bp will be
arbitrated (or litigated if you have opted out of arbitration) individually, and that there will be
no class, representative, or consolidated actions in arbitration or court. Furthermore, neither
you nor BP may participate in a class or representative action as a class member if the class
action asserts claims that would fall within the scope of these Terms if they were directly
asserted by you or bp. All parties agree that this class action waiver is an essential part of these
Terms. If this class action waiver is found to be unenforceable by any court or arbitrator, such a
ruling shall not affect the enforceability of the other dispute resolution provisions in this
Section. This class action waiver may not be severed from our arbitration agreement. Even if
you opt out of this dispute resolution agreement, you still expressly and knowingly WAIVE THE
RIGHT TO BRING A CLASS ACTION.
Arbitrator Authority: The arbitration between you and bp will be binding. In arbitration, there is
no judge and no jury. Instead, our disputes will be resolved by an arbitrator, whose authority is
governed by these Terms. You and bp agree that any question or dispute regarding arbitrability
of any claims will be resolved by an arbitrator. You and bp agree that an arbitrator may only
award such relief as a court of competent jurisdiction could award, limited to the same extent
as a court would limit relief pursuant to these Terms. An arbitrator may award attorneys’ fees
and costs if a court would be authorized to do so and may issue injunctive or declaratory relief
if that relief is required or authorized by the applicable law, but that injunctive or declaratory
relief may not extend beyond you and your dealings with bp. Review of arbitration decisions in
the courts is very limited.
Arbitration Procedures: You and bp agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that
the Federal Arbitration Act applies. All arbitrations shall be conducted by the American
Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The AAA’s rules are available on its website at www.adr.org or
by calling 1-800-778-7879. The Commercial Arbitration Rules will apply. If there is a conflict
between the AAA’s rules and this dispute resolution agreement, this dispute resolution
agreement shall control. To initiate arbitration, you must send a letter requesting arbitration
and describing your claims to 1500 Valley Rd, Wayne, NJ 07470. You must also comply with the
AAA’s rules regarding initiation of arbitration. You will be responsible for your own attorneys’
fees and costs unless otherwise determined by the arbitrator pursuant to these Terms or
Jury Trial Waiver: If for any reason this arbitration agreement is found to be unenforceable, or if
you opt out of this dispute resolution agreement, you and bp expressly and knowingly WAIVE
THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY. This means that a judge rather than a jury will decide disputes
between you and bp if, for any reason, the arbitration agreement is not enforced. This Dispute
Resolution Section survives the termination of these Terms with bp.
Privacy and Use of Personal Information: All personal data supplied for this Campaign will be
used solely for the purpose of this Campaign by bp and/or by any agent appointed by it to assist
with running the Campaign and will not be disclosed to an unconnected third party unless your
positive consent has been obtained. Your personal data will be handled in accordance with the
Privacy Statement ” Home (bp.com).
Severability: If any part/s of these Terms are legally ruled to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable,
the remainder will not be affected and will continue in full force and effect.
Choice of Law: The construction, validity, interpretation, and enforceability of these Terms, and
the rights and obligations of Entrants, winners, bp shall be governed by and construed in
accordance with the laws of the United States and the state of Illinois, without giving effect to
any choice of law or conflict of law rules or provisions.
