13.  Dispute Resolution; Governing Law

Informal Negotiations:  To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to this No Purchase Necessary, (“Dispute”), you and Sponsor agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding.  Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one person to the other.  All notices to Sponsor shall be sent to: Cryptozoic Entertainment, C/O No Purchase Necessary - Dispute, 25351 Commercentre Drive, Suite 250, Lake Forest, CA 92630.

Binding Arbitration:  If you and Sponsor are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations and by participating in this contest, each Participant agrees that: (1) any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) Participant may have against the Sponsor arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with the contest, the awarding or redemption of Prizes, or the determination of the scope, enforceability or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by American Arbitration Association ("AAA").   YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.  The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”).  The determination of whether a Dispute is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator.  Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules.  The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online.  The arbitrator will make a decision in writing.  The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so.  Except as otherwise provided in this License, you and Sponsor may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

Restrictions to Arbitration Proceedings:  You and Sponsor agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between Sponsor and you individually.  To the full extend permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.

Location of Arbitration:  Any arbitration will take place at any reasonable location convenient for you, however, if outside of Los Angeles County, California, the arbitration proceedings may be limited to submission of document, by phone or online.  Any Dispute not subject to arbitration, or where no election to arbitrate has been made, shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within Los Angeles County, California, United States of America, and you and Sponsor agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

Governing Law:  All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules or the rights and obligations of Participant in connection with the contest shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Deleware including procedural provisions without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules or provisions that would cause the application of any other state's or jurisdiction's laws.
