Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Promotion may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.

XI. GOVERNING LAW/DISPUTESParticipants agree that any and all disputes, claims, causes of action, or controversies ("Claims") arising out of or in connection with the Sweepstakes shall be resolved, upon the election by either the entrant or Sponsor, by arbitration conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions without any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties, pursuant to this provision and the code of procedures of either the National Arbitration Forum ("NAF") or the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as selected by the Participant. IF ARBITRATION IS CHOSEN BY ANY PARTY WITH RESPECT TO A CLAIM, NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE THAT CLAIM IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL ON THAT CLAIM. FURTHER, NEITHER SPONSOR NOR ENTRANT WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC OR OTHER PERSONS SIMILARLY SITUATED, OR AS A MEMBER OF ANY CLASS OF CLAIMANTS PERTAINING TO ANY CLAIM SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION. EXCEPT AS SET FORTH BELOW, THE ARBITRATOR'S DECISION WILL BE FINAL AND BINDING. NOTE THAT OTHER RIGHTS THAT ENTRANT WOULD HAVE IF ENTRANT WENT TO COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. Unless both the entrant and Sponsor agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's Claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator's authority to resolve Claims is limited to Claims between Sponsor and the entrant alone, and the arbitrator's authority to make awards is limited to awards to Sponsor and the entrant alone. Furthermore, claims brought by either party against the other may not be joined or consolidated in arbitration with Claims brought by or against any third party, unless agreed to in writing by all parties. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. No arbitration award or decision will have any preclusive effect as to issues or claims in any dispute with anyone who is not a named party to the arbitration. Notwithstanding any other provision in these Official Rules and without waiving either party's right to appeal such decision, should any portion of this paragraph be deemed invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision (other than this sentence and the paragraph below) shall be null and void. If arbitration is not used to resolve a Claim, the Participant AGREES THAT THERE WILL NOT BE A JURY TRIAL. ENTRANT AND SPONSOR EACH UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY CLAIM OR COUNTERCLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE SWEEPSTAKES IN ANY WAY. IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, THIS PARAGRAPH MAY BE FILED TO SHOW A WRITTEN CONSENT TO A TRIAL BY THE COURT. Entrant agrees that this Sweepstakes shall be subject to and governed by the laws of the State of Texas, in the city of Groesbeck, County of Limestone, without giving any effect to the principals of conflicts of law, and the forum for any dispute shall be in Groesbeck, Texas.
