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 your respective rights to a jury trial or a state or federal judge. You

by the agreement to arbitrate in this Dispute Resolution section. You agree that the

any other provision in the Official Rules, or the Sponsor’s and/or Administrator’s Privacy
Policy (including Mobile Terms and Conditions), 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.

enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant,
Administrator, and Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, or any claim or dispute

by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Michigan without giving
effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules.
