13. WHAT HAPPENS IF WE HAVE A DISPUTE OVER THE CONTEST?
Except where prohibited by law, entrants (parent/legal guardian if entrant is a minor in his/her state of residence) agree that:
We promise that we will respond to any issues you may have in good faith and in a professional manner so that, if possible, they can be resolved to our mutual satisfaction through informal communications. If we are unable to resolve any issues between us on an informal basis, however, this Agreement provides that all disputes between you and us will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. You may take your “small claims” disputes to court, but otherwise you cannot go to court to resolve any disputes we may have, and instead must go to arbitration. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT the arbitration procedures are SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT. For more details, please see the paragraphs that follow.
Any dispute between you and CampgroundViews.com arising out of or relating to the Contest, these Official Rules (including the Policies, and all statutes, orders, regulations, and other laws applicable to the Contest), or any prize shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of California, without regard for principles of conflicts of laws.
Venue for any arbitration proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or civil actions, claims, or disputes relating to this Agreement, shall exist exclusively in Ventura County, California. Any and all civil actions, claims, disputes or proceedings arising out of, or relating to, this Agreement shall be referred to final and binding arbitration, before a single arbitrator, under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association, provided however, that any disputes subject to the jurisdiction of the Small Claims or Pro Se Court Section of the Ventura County Civil Division may be brought therein. Any arbitration shall be conducted in Ventura County, provided, however, that if neither party is asserting claims totaling in excess of $10,000, either party may request a “desk arbitration” and that any hearings be held telephonically or by other means of electronic data transmission. You and we shall select the arbitrator, and if you and we are unable to reach agreement on selection of the arbitrator within thirty (30) days after the notice of arbitration is served, then the American Arbitration Association shall select the arbitrator. Arbitration shall not commence until the party requesting it has deposited One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) with the arbitrator as a retainer for the arbitrator’s fees and costs. The party requesting arbitration shall advance such sums as are required from time to time by the arbitrator to pay the arbitrator’s fees and costs until the prevailing party is determined or the parties have agreed in writing to an alternate allocation of fees and costs. Notwithstanding, if you are seeking damages in an amount less than $10,000, arbitration costs pending an award shall be allocated in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s guidelines for consumer arbitration costs. The award shall include an assessment for all arbitration costs paid by the prevailing party and may include an assessment for the prevailing party’s attorneys’ fees. Judgment upon any award rendered by the arbitrator shall be final, binding and conclusive upon you and us, and your and our respective administrators, executors, legal representatives, successors and assigns, and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You may obtain further information on the arbitration process through the American Arbitration Association (firstname.lastname@example.org) (1-800-778-7879) and its website (www.adr.org) and on filing a small claims action
(b) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering this Contest, and in no event shall any entrant be entitled to obtain attorneys’ fees or other legal costs;
(c) under no circumstances will entrants be permitted to obtain awards for, and entrants (parent/legal guardian if entrant is a minor in his/her state of residence) hereby waive, to the extent permitted by applicable law, all rights to claim indirect, punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased; and
(d) all issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrants and the Released Parties in connection with this Contest, 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 (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of California.
If any part of these Official Rules or the Policies is held to be invalid, illegal, or otherwise unenforceable, such part will be modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable while preserving to the maximum extent possible the original intent of CampgroundViews.com, and the remaining parts of these Official Rules and Policies will remain in full force and effect.
