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

rules (whether of the State of Massachusetts or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the

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. In the event that 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 ENTER 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 entering the Sweepstakes, entrants agree that all issues and questions concerning the
construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, participant’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.
