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 Tarrant County, Texas 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 Tarrant County, Texas. 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 Tarrant County,
Texas. 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.
