12. Dispute Resolution: 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, the Official Rules, or the Sponsor’s
and/or Administrator’s Privacy Policy (including Mobile Terms and Conditions) 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, the Official Rules, or the Sponsor’s and/or
Administrator’s Privacy Policy (including Mobile Terms and Conditions), 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 or the Sponsor’s and/or Administrator’s Privacy Policy (including Mobile Terms and
Conditions). You must send the Demand to the following address (the “Notice Address”): Legal
Department, HelloWorld, 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 your respective
rights to a jury trial or a state or federal judge. You agree that you will not file any lawsuit against
Administrator or Sponsor in any state or federal court. You agree that if you do sue in state or
federal court, and Administrator or Sponsor brings a successful motion to compel arbitration, you
must pay all fees and costs incurred by Administrator and Sponsor in court, including reasonable
attorney’s fees. For any such filing of a demand for arbitration, you must effect proper service under
the rules of the Arbitrator and notice to the Notice Address may not be sufficient. If, for any reason,
the American Arbitration Association is unable to conduct the arbitration, you may file your case
with any national arbitration company. The Arbitrator shall apply the AAA Consumer Arbitration
Rules effective September 1, 2014 (and as may be amended) and as modified by the agreement
to arbitrate in this Dispute Resolution section. You agree that the Arbitrator will have sole and
exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute you have with Administrator or Sponsor. The Federal
Arbitration Act allows for the enforcement of arbitration agreements and governs the interpretation
and enforcement of the agreement to arbitrate. The place of arbitration shall be Oakland County,
Michigan.
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, 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.
All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of
these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant, Administrator, and Sponsor in
connection with the Promotion, or any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you,
Administrator and Sponsor, shall be governed 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.
This arbitration provision shall survive conclusion, modification or termination of the Promotion and
suspension, revocation, closure, modification, or amendments to the Official Rules, the
Administrator’s Mobile Terms and Conditions, and any aspect of the relationship of the parties
relating to or arising from participation in the Promotion.
