Arbitration
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ THIS ENTIRE SECTION CAREFULLY
BECAUSE IT AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. THIS SECTION PROVIDES
THAT, EXCEPT FOR THE SPECIFIC EXCEPTION STATED BELOW, ANY
DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND CHURCHILL DOWNS MUST BE RESOLVED BY
BINDING ARBITRATION THAT REPLACES THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT
BEFORE A JUDGE OR A JURY, AND MAY LIMIT YOUR RIGHTS TO
DISCOVERY OR TO APPEAL. IT FURTHER PROVIDES THAT YOU WILL NOT
BE ABLE TO BRING A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION
IN COURT, NOR WILL YOU BE ABLE TO BRING ANY CLAIM IN
ARBITRATION AS A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE
ACTION. Churchill Downs may, without your consent, elect mandatory
binding arbitration of any claim, dispute or controversy raised by you
against Churchill Downs arising from or related to your participation in
the Sweepstakes (the “Claim” or “Claims”). All Claims are subject to
arbitration, no matter what theory they are based on or what remedy
they seek, whether legal or equitable. If Churchill Downs elects
arbitration, the arbitration will be conducted as an individual
arbitration. Neither you nor Churchill Downs consent or agree to any
arbitration on a class or representative basis, and the arbitrator shall
have no authority to proceed with an arbitration on a class or
representative basis. No arbitration will be consolidated with any other
arbitration proceeding without the consent of all parties involved. This
arbitration provision applies to and includes any Claims made and
remedies sought as part of any class action, private attorney general
action, or other representative action. By consenting to submit Claims to
arbitration, you may be forfeiting its right to share in any class action
awards, including class claims where a class has not yet been certified,
even if the facts and circumstances upon which the Claims are based
already occurred or existed. Either the National Arbitration Forum
(“NAF”) or the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) must administer
the arbitration. The arbitration organization that is selected will apply its
rules, codes or procedures in effect at the time the arbitration is filed,
unless any portion of those rules, codes, or procedures is inconsistent
with any specific terms of this arbitration provision or this Sweepstakes,
in which case the terms of this arbitration provision or this Sweepstakes
will govern. These rules and procedures may limit the amount of
discovery available to you. The arbitration shall be before a single
arbitrator. The arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law, including
the applicable statute of limitations, and will honor claims or privilege
recognized at law. The arbitrator will have the power to award to a party
any damages provided for under applicable law, but in so doing, the
arbitrator shall apply substantive law regarding damages as if the matter
had been brought in court. All fees, including attorneys’ fees will be
allocated in accordance with the rules of the arbitration
organization. The Federal Arbitration Act, and not state law, shall govern
the arbitratibility of all Claims between you and Churchill Downs,
including any and all claims or disputes concerning the validity,
construction and performance of this arbitration provision. Any Claim or
dispute as to the enforceability of this arbitration provision’s restrictions
on your right to participate in or pursue a class action or classwide
arbitration shall be decided by a court and not an arbitrator, and shall be
brought only in a United States District Court located in Louisville,
Kentucky.
