12. BINDING ARBITRATION:
Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Contest 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 Georgia 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 CONTEST

THESE OFFICIAL RULES. BY PARTICIPATING
IN THIS CONTEST, 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

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
