13. Disputes: YOU AND SPONSOR AGREE THAT, EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES THAT QUALIFY FOR STATE COURTS OF
LIMITED JURISDICTION (SUCH AS SMALL CLAIMS, JUSTICE OF THE PEACE, MAGISTRATE COURT, AND SIMILAR COURTS
WITH MONETARY LIMITS ON THEIR JURISDICTIONS OVER CIVIL DISPUTES), ANY CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM, WHETHER
AT LAW OR EQUITY, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED THIS SWEEPSTAKES, REGARDLESS OF THE DATE OF ACCRUAL OF
SUCH DISPUTE, SHALL BE RESOLVED IN ITS ENTIRETY BY INDIVIDUAL (NOT CLASS-WIDE NOR COLLECTIVE) BINDING
Arbitration is the submission of a dispute to a neutral arbitrator, instead of a judge or jury, for a final and binding decision,
known as an “award.” Arbitration provides for more limited discovery than in court and is subject to limited review by
courts. Each party has an opportunity to present evidence to the arbitrator in writing or through witnesses. An arbitrator
can only award the same damages and relief that a court can award under the law and must honor these Official Rules.
Any arbitration will take place in the county where you reside and will be determined by a single arbitrator. The arbitration
shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules and
Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”), and judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent
jurisdiction. The Rules, including instructions for how to initiate arbitration, are available at http://www.adr.org or by
calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitrator shall decide all issues of the case on the basis of the applicable law, not
equity. If you initiate arbitration, you must serve Sponsor’s registered agent for service of process, Corporation Service
Company, which has locations in every state. Information also can be found on the website of your local Secretary of State.
Any filing fee or administrative fee required of you by the AAA Rules shall be paid by you to the extent such fee does not
exceed the amount of the fee required to commence a similar action in a court that otherwise would have jurisdiction. For
all non-frivolous complaints, Sponsor will pay the amount of such fee in excess of that amount. The arbitrator will allocate
the administrative costs and arbitral fees consistent with the applicable rules of the AAA. Reasonable attorney’s fees and
expenses will be allocated or awarded only to the extent such allocation or award is available under applicable law. You
and Sponsor agree that this Sweepstakes affects interstate commerce so that the Federal Arbitration Act and federal
arbitration law apply and govern the interpretation and enforcement of this provision (despite the choice of law provision).
This agreement to arbitrate shall survive termination of the Sweepstakes or these Official Rules. If a court or arbitrator
determines in an action between you and us that this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, the arbitration agreement will
be void as 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 California, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law
rules (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any
jurisdiction other than the State of California.
ANY ATTEMPT BY ANY PERSON TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE ANY WEBSITE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SWEEPSTAKES OR

ENTRANT, AND SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK REMEDIES AND DAMAGES (INCLUDING ATTORNEYS’ FEES)
FROM ANY SUCH PERSON OR PERSONS TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
