DISPUTES: The parties hereto each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration;
provided, however, the Released Parties shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the
state and federal courts in Rowan County, North Carolina and any other court with jurisdiction over
the parties. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator’s decision
and award is final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered
in any court with jurisdiction. The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit,
action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Sweepstakes shall be resolved solely by
binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of
JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”) or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a
hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a “Demand for Arbitration”, then either party
can elect to have the arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or
any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. If an in-person hearing is required,
then it will take place in Rowan County, North Carolina. The federal or state law that applies to
these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an
individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or
controversy of another party, including any class actions; provided, however, if for any reason any
court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the
agreement to arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent
jurisdiction in Rowan County, North Carolina. Sponsor agrees to pay the administrative and
arbitrator’s fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other
costs of entrant to attend the arbitration hearing). Either party may, notwithstanding this provision,
bring qualifying claims in small claims court.
