Disputes.  ARBITRATION REQUIREMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER: PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY — IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT OR CLASS ACTION IN COURT. 
By participating in this Sweepstakes, you agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Sponsor, including without limitation federal and state statutory claims, common law claims, and those based in contract, tort, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis.  The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (referred to as the "AAA") under its rules and procedures, including the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate.  The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org.  This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted.  In the event of any question as to whether a particular issue must be arbitrated, you agree to delegate the question of whether a particular issue or dispute is arbitrable to the sole discretion of the arbitrator.  The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate. If any court or arbitrator determines that this class action waiver is void or unenforceable or that arbitration may proceed on a class basis, then the relevant claim will not be subject to arbitration and must be litigated in federal court located in New York, New York, without regard to any principles of conflict of laws. The agreement to arbitrate and class action waiver also apply to any Claims you assert against the Sponsor or its present or future parent, subsidiary or affiliated companies. 
 
THE ARBITRATION OF CLAIMS 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.
