L.  DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND CHOICE OF LAW:  READ THIS PROVISION CAREFULLY AS IT WAIVES YOUR LEGAL RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT, TO A JURY, AND TO PURSUE A CLASS ACTION. These Official Rules are governed and interpreted pursuant to the laws of the State of Nebraska, United States of America, notwithstanding any principles of conflicts of law. CVA makes no representation that the Drawing, any Award/prize , or any Release Product are applicable or appropriate for use in all locations, and if you enter a Drawing from other locations you are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. If you take legal action relating to these Official Rules or your interactions with or relationship to CVA that is not subject to arbitration as provided below, you agree to file such action only in the state and federal courts located in York County, Nebraska and waive any objection you may have to the venue or forum.  Any controversy or claim between you and CVA arising out of or relating to these Official Rules, or breach thereof, or any Drawing, Award/prize, or Release Product, including disputes with respect to whether the subject matter of any controversy or claim is within the scope of this arbitration provision, will be resolved by binding arbitration in York County, Nebraska under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and administered by the AAA.
