10. BINDING ARBITRATION: Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Sweepstakes shall
be settled by binding arbitration in a location determined by the arbitrator as set forth herein (provided
that such location is reasonably convenient for claimant), or at such other location as may be mutually
agreed upon by the parties, in accordance with the procedural rules for commercial disputes set forth
in the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (“JAMS Rules and Procedures”) then
prevailing, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court
having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the JAMS Rules and Procedures.
The arbitrator shall apply Iowa law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes
of limitations and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. In the event that the claimant is able
to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation,
Sponsor will pay as much of the claimant’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as
the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. If any part of this
arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal (other than that claims will not be
arbitrated on a class or representative basis), or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures
established by JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be
construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal, or conflicting provision
were not contained herein. If, however, the portion that is deemed invalid, unenforceable, or illegal is
that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, then the entirety of this arbitration
provision shall be null and void, and neither claimant nor Sponsor shall be entitled to arbitrate their
dispute. Upon filing a demand for arbitration, all parties to such arbitration shall have the right of
discovery, which discovery shall be completed within sixty days after the demand for arbitration is made,
unless further extended by mutual agreement of the parties. THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES
PURSUANT TO THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL BE IN THE ENTRANT’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND
NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE
PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER
PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED. DO NOT ENTER THIS
SWEEPSTAKES IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY
ARBITRATED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE OFFICIAL RULES.
BY PARTICIPATING IN THIS SWEEPSTAKES, EACH ENTRANT AGREES THAT TO THE EXTENT
PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW: (1) ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS, AND CAUSES OF
ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED WITH THE SWEEPSTAKES, OR ANY PRIZE
AWARDED, WILL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION AS SET
FORTH ABOVE, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION; (2) ANY AND ALL
CLAIMS, JUDGMENTS, AND AWARDS WILL BE LIMITED TO ACTUAL THIRD-PARTY, OUT-OF-
POCKET COSTS INCURRED (IF ANY), BUT IN NO EVENT WILL ATTORNEYS’ FEES BE AWARDED
OR RECOVERABLE; (3) UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY ENTRANT BE PERMITTED TO
OBTAIN ANY AWARD FOR, AND ENTRANT HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND EXPRESSLY WAIVES
ALL RIGHTS TO SEEK PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR SPECIAL DAMAGES,
LOST PROFITS AND/OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, OTHER THAN ACTUAL OUT OF POCKET
EXPENSES, AND/OR ANY RIGHTS TO HAVE DAMAGES MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE
INCREASED; AND (4) ENTRANT’S REMEDIES ARE LIMITED TO A CLAIM FOR MONEY DAMAGES
(IF NY) AND ENTRANT IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR
EQUITABLE RELIEF. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSION
OF LIABILITY, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO EVERY ENTRANT.
11. PUBLICITY: Except in Tennessee, and where prohibited by law, by accepting a prize, winners grant
permission for Sponsor and those acting under its authority to use their name, and address (city and
state), Story, Photo, voice and/or likeness, for advertising and/or publicity purposes, in any and all

interpretation, and enforceability of these Official Rules, your rights and obligations, or the rights and
obligations of the Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed
in accordance with, the laws of the State of Colorado without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict
of law rules thereof. By entering, you consent to the jurisdiction and venue of the federal, state, and
local courts located in Broomfield County, Colorado for the resolution of all matter or proceedings which
are not subject to arbitration as set forth in Section 10 of these Official Rules and agree that any and
all such disputes shall be resolved exclusively in those courts. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of
