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 Cook County, Illinois. 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,

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 Cook County, Illinois.
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).
