Governing Law; Arbitration
ALL ISSUES AND QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE CONSTRUCTION,
VALIDITY, INTERPRETATION AND ENFORCEABILITY OF THESE OFFICIAL
RULES OR THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF ENTRANTS OR SPONSOR IN
CONNECTION WITH THE SWEEPSTAKES SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND
CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE
COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ANY
CHOICE OF LAW OF CONFLICT OF LAW RULES OR PROVISIONS THAT
WOULD CAUSE THE APPLICATION OF ANY OTHER STATE’S LAWS. 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 SPONSOR 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. Sponsor may, without your consent,
elect mandatory binding arbitration of any claim, dispute or controversy
raised by you against Sponsor 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 Sponsor elects
arbitration, the arbitration will be conducted as an individual
arbitration. Neither you nor Sponsor 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 Sponsor, 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.
