binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. On or around December 7, 2020, Administrator will
randomly select the potential Sweepstakes winners from all eligible entries received during the Promotion
Period. The potential winners will be notified by email, mail or phone. Each potential Grand, First and
Second Prize winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) will be
required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Waiver and where not prohibited a
Publicity Release (“Declaration”) which must be received by Administrator within seven (7) days of the
date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim the prize. Potential Third and Fourth Prize

Rules and complete and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability and (where not prohibited) a

undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits their prize. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance
with these Official Rules. In the event that a potential Sweepstakes winner is disqualified for any reason
or forfeits the prize, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing
from among all remaining eligible entries. Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which the
prize(s) will remain un-awarded. In the event that a potential dealership prize winner is disqualified for
any reason, the applicable prize will go unawarded.

9. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes, if
any fraud, technical failures, human error, or any other factor impairs the integrity or proper functioning of

calamities, national emergencies, pandemics (including, without limitation severe acute respiratory
syndrome coronavirus 2 or other wide spread illnesses and any governmental actions taken in connection
therewith), declarations of war, acts of God, acts of terrorism) interferes with any aspect of the

discretion. In such event, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among
all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance and may modify the prizes offered herein.
Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with
the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of
this or any other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to
deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and
civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any
such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official
Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
10. Limitations of Liability: The Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate
information, whether caused by entrants, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming

to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (3)
unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the Sweepstakes; (4) technical or

receipt or use or misuse of any prize. If for any reason an entrant’s entry is confirmed to have been
erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is another entry in
the Sweepstakes, if it is possible. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the event
that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated
number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the
right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded,
eligible prize claims.
11. 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 Sweepstakes, the Official Rules, or the Administrator’s 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, Sponsor or any other Released
Parties arising out of, connected to, or in any way related to the Sweepstakes, the Official Rules, or the
Administrator’s 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 Administrator’s
Mobile Terms and Conditions. You must send the Demand to the following address (the “Notice
Address”): Legal Department, Merkle 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 (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.
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 Administrator’s 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 the United States District Court for the
Southern District of Florida, handling the In re: Takata Airbag Products Liability Litigation (Economic Loss
Track), MDL No. 2599 (S.D. Fla.). 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 Sweepstakes, 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. The place of arbitration shall be Oakland
County, Michigan. This arbitration provision shall survive conclusion, modification or termination of the
Sweepstakes 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 Sweepstakes.
