Without limiting the foregoing, if for any reason the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as originally
planned, including should any virus, worm, bug, technical failures, unauthorized human intervention or
other causes corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness or proper conduct of the
Sweepstakes, Sponsor reserves the right to terminate the Sweepstakes. In the event of termination,

received up to time of such action for this Sweepstakes. In the event of any such termination or
suspension, a notice may be posted at www.scottiesfacial.com. Entrant agrees that: (1) any and all
disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Sweepstakes or any prizes

United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts or the appropriate Massachusetts State
Court located in Middlesex County, Massachusetts; (2) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall

DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. All issues and questions concerning the
construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and
obligations of the entrant and Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and
construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Massachusetts without giving effect to any
choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of Massachusetts or any other jurisdiction),
which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of
Massachusetts.
9. 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 Massachusetts law consistent with the Federal
Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at
law. If 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 PARTICIPATE IN THIS
SWEEPSTAKES IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY ARBITRATED IN
ACCORDANCE WITH THESE OFFICIAL RULES. BY PARTICIPATING IN THE 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 ANY) 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.
By participating in the Sweepstakes, entrants agree that all issues and questions concerning the
construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, entrant’s rights and
obligations, and the rights and obligations of the Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, will be
governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of State of Massachusetts, United States of
America, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules thereof, and any matters or
proceedings which are not subject to arbitration as set forth in Section 9 of these Official Rules and/or
for entering any judgment on an arbitration award, shall take place in the State of Massachusetts in the
County of Middlesex.
