a.     Binding Arbitration. Each entrant agrees that any dispute, controversy or claim related to these Official Rules (a “Claim”), to the extent unable to be resolved through mutual negotiations continuing for a period of at least thirty (30) days, may, upon the delivery of a written election of either the entrant, on the one hand, or Rdio or Administrator (each a “Sweeps Party”), on the other hand, with the exception of those Claims expressly excluded in paragraph 12.e., be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. The arbitration will be conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “JAMS Rules”) and under the terms set forth in these Official Rules. In the event of a conflict between the terms set forth in these Official Rules and the JAMS Rules, the terms set forth in these Official Rules will control and prevail.  Except as otherwise set forth in paragraph 12.e., an entrant may seek any remedies available to him or her under federal, provincial, state or local laws in an arbitration action. As part of the arbitration, an entrant and any Sweeps Party will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim.  The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator’s decision regarding the Claim, the award given and the arbitrator’s findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator’s decision is based.  The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. The determination of whether a Claim is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator.  Except as otherwise provided in these Official Rules, (i) an entrant and any Sweeps Party may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator; and (ii) the arbitrator’s decision is final, binding on all parties and enforceable in any court that has jurisdiction. 
b.     Arbitration Fees.  If an entrant initiates arbitration for a Claim, he or she will only need to pay an arbitration initiation fee of $250 and the applicable Sweeps Party will pay all other costs charged by JAMS for initiating the arbitration.  If a Sweeps Party is initiating arbitration for a Claim, such Sweeps Party will pay all costs charged by JAMS for the arbitration.  All other fees and costs of the arbitration will be charged pursuant to the JAMS Rules.  No entrant will be required to pay a Sweeps Party’s attorneys’ fees or other costs if he or she does not prevail in the arbitration.  No entrant will seek attorneys’ fees in the event they are deemed the prevailing party.
c.     Location. The arbitration will take place in the entrant’s hometown area if the entrant so notifies the applicable Sweeps Party in his or her notice of arbitration or within then (10) days following receipt of an applicable Sweeps Party’s arbitration notice. In the absence of a notice to conduct the arbitration in the entrant’s hometown area, the arbitration will be conducted in San Francisco, California, unless the parties agree to video, phone and/or internet connection appearances.  Any Claim not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction in San Francisco, State of California, United States of America, and each entrant agrees to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
e.     Exceptions to Arbitration. Each entrant agrees that the following Claims are not subject to the above provisions concerning binding arbitration: (a) any Claims seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any intellectual property rights of a Sweeps Party; (b) any Claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief.  In addition to the foregoing, either party may assert an individual action in small claims court for Claims that are within the scope of such courts’ jurisdiction in lieu of arbitration. 
f.      Governing Law. Except as otherwise provided in these Official Rules, these Official Rules will be governed by, and will be construed under, the laws of the State of California, without regard to its choice of law principles.   
g.     Severability. Each Entrant agrees that if any portion of this paragraph 12 is found illegal or unenforceable (except any portion of paragraph 12.e.), that portion shall be severed and the remainder of the Section shall be given full force and effect. If paragraph 12.e. is found to be illegal or unenforceable then no entrant will elect to arbitrate any Claim falling within that portion of paragraph 12.e. found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Claim shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction within San Francisco, State of California, United States of America, and entrant agrees to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

                  limitations on damages, VENUE, and restrictions on class actions are not permitted in all jurisdictions and so the above limitations may not apply to you.
