Disputes, Governing Law and Jurisdiction
If any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Official Rules, the Sweepstakes and/or the Contests, or the breach of any term hereof cannot be settled through direct discussions for a period of 30 days, each Entrant agrees, then, upon notice duly served, that the controversy or claim shall be resolved by binding and final arbitration administered by JAMS or its successor (“JAMS”), at JAMS’ Boston, Massachusetts office, before a single neutral arbitrator appointed in accordance with the streamlined arbitration rules and procedures, or subsequent versions thereof, including the optional appeal procedure (including the optional JAMS Rules, including, without limitation, the rule providing that each party will contribute equally to JAMS fees and expenses and the rules providing for limited discovery and other exchange of information). All disputes and arbitrations shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Federal Rules of Evidence regardless of choice of law rules and there shall be no award of punitive damages. The decision of the arbitrator shall be in writing and shall include a statement of the essential conclusions and findings upon which the decision is based. The JAMS Rules are available at www.JAMSADR.com All arbitration proceedings shall be confidential and disclosed only to those with a need to know or as may be required by law or as may be required to enforce any arbitration proceedings or awards. Judgment on any awards may be entered in the federal or state courts in Suffolk County, Massachusetts, which are the exclusive forums for such matters. In the event that the arbitration provision in these Official Rules is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against the Sweepstakes/Contest Entities (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in a federal or state court located within Suffolk County, Massachusetts, and Entrant consents to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.
