LEGAL WARNING: ANY ATTEMPT BY AN INDIVIDUAL, WHETHER OR NOT AN ENTRANT, TO

LAWS AND SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK DAMAGES AND DILIGENTLY
PURSUE ALL REMEDIES AGAINST ANY SUCH INDIVIDUAL TO THE FULLEST EXTENT
PERMITTED BY LAW.
GOVERNING LAW AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: All issues and questions concerning the
construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules or the rights and
obligations of entrants, Sponsor or the Released Parties in connection with the Sweepstakes will
be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Ohio, without
giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules or provisions that would cause the
application of any other laws.
BY ENTERING THE SWEEPSTAKES, ENTRANT AGREES THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED
BY APPLICABLE LAW: (A) 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, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION;
(B) ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, JUDGMENTS AND AWARDS WILL BE LIMITED TO ACTUAL
THIRD-PARTY, OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS INCURRED (IF ANY) NOT TO EXCEED TEN
DOLLARS ($10.00), BUT IN NO EVENT WILL ATTORNEYS’ FEES BE AWARDED OR
RECOVERABLE; (C) 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 NOT TO EXCEED TEN DOLLARS ($10.00), AND/OR ANY RIGHTS TO HAVE
DAMAGES MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCREASED; AND (D) ENTRANTS’ 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 YOU.
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 Franklin County, Ohio 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 Franklin County, Ohio. 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 Franklin County, Ohio.
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.
PRIVACY: As a condition of entering the Sweepstakes, each entrant gives consent for Sponsor to
obtain and deliver his or her name, address and other information to third parties, including
Sweepstakes Administrator, for the purpose of administering this Sweepstakes and to comply with
applicable laws, regulations and rules, including, without limitation, the storing of your personal
