5. DISPUTE RESOLUTION: Entrants (Entrants are also sometimes referred to as “You” or “Your”, herein) agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise relating in any way to or arising out of the Sweepstakes, the Official Rules, or the Administrator's and/or Sponsor's Privacy Policies will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Dispute Resolution section. Please read this section carefully. It affects Your rights and will have a substantial impact on how claims You and we have against each other are resolved.

Entrants agree that whenever they have a disagreement with Administrator and Sponsor arising out of, connected to, or in any way related to the Sweepstakes, the Official Rules, or the Administrator's and Sponsor’s Privacy Policy, You will send a written notice to the Administrator (“Demand”). You agree that the requirements of this Dispute Resolution section will apply even to disagreements that may have arisen before You accepted these Official Rules or the Administrator's and Sponsor’s Privacy Policies. Entrant must send the Demand to the following address (the “Notice Address”): Gelson’s Market, 16400 Ventura Blvd., Suite 240, Encino, California 91436-2123. You agree that You will not take any legal action, including filing a lawsuit or demanding arbitration, until 10 business days after You send a Demand. If the disagreement stated in the Demand is not resolved to Your satisfaction within 10 business days after it is received, and You intend on taking legal action, You agree that You will file a demand for arbitration with the American Arbitration Association (the “Arbitrator”). This arbitration provision limits the ability of You, Administrator, and Sponsor to litigate claims in court and You, Administrator, and Sponsor each agree to waive Your respective rights to a jury trial or a state or federal judge. You agree that You will not file any lawsuit against Administrator or Sponsor in any state or federal court. You agree that if You do sue in state or federal court, and Administrator or Sponsor brings a successful motion to compel arbitration, You must pay all fees and costs incurred by Administrator and Sponsor in court, including reasonable attorney’s fees. For any such filing of a demand for arbitration, You must affect proper service under the rules of the Arbitrator and notice to the Notice Address may not be sufficient. If, for any reason, the American Arbitration Association is unable to conduct the arbitration, You may file Your case with any national arbitration company. The Arbitrator shall apply the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules effective September 1, 2014 (and as may be amended) and as modified by the agreement to arbitrate in this Dispute Resolution section. You agree that the Arbitrator will have sole and exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute You have with Administrator or Sponsor. The Federal Arbitration Act allows for the enforcement of arbitration agreements and governs the interpretation and enforcement of the agreement to arbitrate. The place of arbitration shall be Irvine, California.

You agree that you will not file a class action or collective action against Administrator or Sponsor, and that You will not participate in a class action or collective action against them. You agree that You will not join Your claims to those of any other person. Notwithstanding any other provision in the Official Rules, or the Administrator's and/or Sponsor's Privacy Policies, if this class action waiver is invalidated, then the agreement to arbitrate is null and void, as though it were never entered, and any arbitration dispute at that time will be dismissed without prejudice and may be refiled in a court. Under no circumstances do You, Administrator, or Sponsor agree to class or collective procedures in arbitration or the joinder of claims in arbitration. Administrator and Sponsor agree that we will submit all disputes with You to arbitration before the Arbitrator.

All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the Entrant, Administrator, and Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, or any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between You, Administrator and Sponsor, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules.

This arbitration provision shall survive conclusion, modification or termination of the Sweepstakes, this Promotion and suspension, revocation, closure, modification, or amendments to the Official Rules and any aspect of the relationship of the parties relating to or arising from participation in the Sweepstakes.
