Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of any part of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal  and/or civil law, and, should such an attempt  be made, the Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.  The Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of the Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that term in any manner. 
12.   Release and Limitations of Liability: Except  where prohibited, by participating in the Sweepstakes each entrant agrees to release and hold harmless the Club and its respective parents,  subsidiaries, affiliates, promotional partners, prize partners (including Mack Cycle) and providers, and their  respective agents and agencies, officers and directors (collectively, “Released Parties”), from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in the Sweepstakes, or receipt, use or misuse of any prize, including, but not limited to: (a) unauthorized human intervention in the Sweepstakes; (b) technical errors; (c) printing errors; (d) errors in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; (e) late, lost, or undeliverable mail or email;  or (f) injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt, use or misuse of any prize.  Entrant further agrees that in any cause of action the Released Parties’ liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Sweepstakes, but in no event more than $25.00, and in no event shall the Released Parties be liable for attorneys’ fees or costs.  Entrant knowingly and voluntarily waives the right to claim any damages whatever, including, but not limited to, punitive, consequential, incidental, special, indirect, or direct damages (other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses or statutory damages, subject to the $25.00 maximum amount, unless such maximum is prohibited by applicable law), and waives any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. If for any reason an entrant’s entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is another entry in the Sweepstakes, if it is possible, or if it is not possible and the entrant has paid a donation for the ticket, a refund of what the entrant donated for the ticket.
13.   Disputes: a. Each entrant agrees that: (i) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with the Sweepstakes or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action or other group action, and exclusively by the appropriate state court located in Miami-Dade County, Florida; and (ii) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering any Sweepstakes, or statutory damages, subject to the $25.00 maximum unless imposing such maximum is prohibited by applicable law, but in no event attorneys' fees or costs. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of the Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant and Sponsor/Administrator in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Florida, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of  law rules (whether of the State of Florida or any other jurisdiction), which  would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of  Florida. b. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing to the contrary described in Section 13.a above, the provisions of this paragraph shall govern and control in all respects.  Before any lawsuit may be instituted to settle any dispute, claim or cause of action, the parties must first agree to discuss it in good faith, either in person or by phone, to see if the matter can be amicably resolved.  If not so resolved within 30 days of the time a party first received notice of the dispute, claim or cause of action, either party may, within 10 days of the end of said 30-day period, require non-binding mediation in Miami-Dade County before a certified mediator or other mediator on whom the parties mutually agree.  If the dispute, claim or cause of action is not resolved by mediation within 90 days following the date a party first notified the other of intent to mediate, then, within 10 days of the end of said 90-day period, either party may elect, as the sole, exclusive and conclusive means of resolving the dispute, claim or cause of action, binding arbitration in Miami-Dade County by, and in accordance with the rules for commercial disputes of, the American Arbitration Association.
