    1. a. Disputes. This Section 10 contains information related to binding individual arbitration and class action waiver (“Arbitration Clause”). The terms of this Arbitration Clause shall apply to all Disputes between you and Sponsor and its affiliates (collectively, “WD”). Subject to the exclusions provided in this Section a., “Dispute” shall mean any dispute, claim, controversy or action between you and WD arising under or relating to all WD Promotions, products, including without limitation hardware and software products, services, these Terms and Conditions, or any other transaction involving you and WD, whether in contract, warranty, misrepresentation, fraud, tort, intentional tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis, and shall be interpreted to be given the broadest meaning allowable under law. YOU AND WD AGREE THAT “DISPUTE” AS DEFINED IN THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE SHALL NOT INCLUDE ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION CONCERNING THE ENFORCEMENT OR VALIDITY OF YOUR, WD’S, OR EITHER OF OUR LICENSORS’ INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, INCLUDING CLAIMS OF (A) TRADE SECRET MISAPPROPRIATION, (B) PATENT INFRINGEMENT, (C) COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT AND MISUSE, AND (D) TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT AND DILUTION. ANY ACTION TO ENFORCE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS SHALL BE BROUGHT EXCLUSIVELY IN THE APPROPRIATE COURT LOCATED IN LONDON, ENGLAND.

    2. b. Binding Arbitration. You and WD further agree: (a) to arbitrate all Disputes between the parties pursuant to the provisions herein; (b) this Arbitration Clause memorializes a transaction in interstate commerce; (c) that the laws of England and Wales governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Clause; and (d) the arbitration shall be administered by the London Court of International Arbitration in London, England (“Arbitration Center”) in accordance with the Arbitration Center arbitration rules (“Rules”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may bring an individual action in the small claims court of your state or municipality if the action is pending only in that court. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JUDGE OR JURY IN A COURT PROCEEDING AND YOUR GROUNDS FOR APPEAL ARE LIMITED. The arbitrator may award you the same damages as a court sitting in proper jurisdiction could, and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final, binding and enforceable by any court with jurisdiction over the parties.

    3. c. Dispute Notice. In the event of a Dispute, you or WD must first send to the other party a notice of the Dispute that shall include a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and the relief requested (the “Dispute Notice”). The Dispute Notice to WD must be addressed to Sponsor at: ATTN: Legal Department, Hamilton House, Regent Park, Kingston Road, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT227PL – United Kingdom (the “WD Notice Address”). The Dispute Notice to you will be sent by e-mail or certified mail (if available) to the most recent address we have on file or otherwise in our records for you. If WD and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within sixty (60) days after the Dispute Notice is received, you or WD may commence an arbitration proceeding pursuant to this Arbitration Clause. Following submission and receipt of the Dispute Notice, each of us agrees to act in good faith to seek to resolve the Dispute before commencing arbitration.

    4. d. WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS AND CLASS ARBITRATIONS. EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED, YOU AND WD AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING DISPUTES AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FEDERAL OR STATE CLASS ACTIONS, CLASS ARBITRATIONS, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS. ACCORDINGLY, UNDER THE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES OUTLINED IN THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, AN ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT COMBINE OR CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PARTY’S CLAIMS WITHOUT THE WRITTEN CONSENT OF ALL AFFECTED PARTIES TO AN ARBITRATION PROCEEDING.

    5. e. Arbitration Procedure. If a party elects to commence arbitration, the arbitration shall be governed by the Rules that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated and under the rules set forth in this Arbitration Clause. If there is a conflict between the Rules and the rules set forth in this Arbitration Clause, the rules set forth in this Arbitration Clause shall govern. You may, in arbitration, seek any and all remedies otherwise available to you pursuant to federal, state, or local laws. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language. All Disputes shall be resolved by a single neutral arbitrator, and both parties shall have a reasonable opportunity to participate in the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Arbitration Clause. With the exception of issues relating to the enforceability of the arbitration provision, all issues related to this Arbitration Clause, including the Arbitration Clause’s scope and the arbitrability of a Dispute, are for the arbitrator to decide. You may choose to engage in arbitration hearings by telephone. Arbitration hearings not conducted by telephone shall take place in a location reasonably accessible from your primary residence, or in London, England, at your option.

      1. i. Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding. If either you or WD decide to arbitrate a Dispute, we agree to the following procedure:

        1. (A) Write a Demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the Dispute and the amount of damages sought to be recovered (“Demand for Arbitration”).

        2. (B) Send three copies of the Demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee, to the Arbitration Center.

        3. (C) Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party at the same address as the Dispute Notice, or as otherwise agreed to by the parties.

      2. ii. Hearing Format. In all hearing formats, the arbitrator shall issue a written decision that explains the essential findings and conclusions on which an award, if any, is based. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by WD or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or WD is entitled. The discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the Dispute may be allowed during the arbitration.

      3. iii. Arbitration Fees. WD shall pay, or (if applicable) reimburse you for, all Arbitration Center filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration commenced (by you or WD) pursuant to provisions of this Arbitration Clause.

      4. iv. Award in Your Favor. For Disputes in which you or we seek $75,000 or less in damages, exclusive of attorney’s fees and costs, if the arbitrator’s decision results in an award to you in an amount greater than WD’s last written offer, if any, to settle the Dispute, WD will: (A) pay you $1,000 or the amount of the award, whichever is greater; (B) pay you twice the amount of your reasonable attorney’s fees, if any; and (C) reimburse you for any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs) that your attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing, and pursuing the Dispute in arbitration. Except as agreed upon by you and WD in writing, the arbitrator shall determine the amount of fees, costs, and expenses to be paid by WD pursuant to this Section.

      5. v. Attorney’s Fees. WD will not seek its attorney’s fees and expenses for any arbitration commenced involving a Dispute under this Arbitration Clause. Your right to attorney’s fees and expenses under Section (e)(iv) above does not limit your rights to attorney’s fees and expenses under applicable law; notwithstanding the foregoing, the arbitrator may not award duplicative awards of attorney’s fees and expenses.

      6. vi. Opt-out. You may elect to opt-out (exclude yourself) from the final, binding individual arbitration procedure and waiver of class and representative proceedings specified in this Arbitration Clause by sending a written letter to the WD Notice Address within thirty (30) days of your assent to this Arbitration Clause (including without limitation the purchase, download, installation or other use of WD products and services or participation in any WD contests or promotions) that specifies (A) your name, (B) your mailing address, and (C) your request to be excluded from the final, binding individual arbitration procedure and waiver of class and representative proceedings specified in this Arbitration Clause. In the event that you opt-out consistent with the procedure set forth above, all other terms shall continue to apply, including the requirement to provide pre-dispute notification.

    6. f. Severability. If any provision in this Arbitration Clause is found to be unenforceable, that provision shall be severed with the remainder of this Arbitration Clause remaining in full force and effect. The foregoing shall not apply to the prohibition against class or representative actions as provided in Section (d); if Section (d) is found to be unenforceable, this entire Arbitration Clause shall be null and void.

  8. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Terms and Conditions, your rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of Sponsor that arise out of or in connection with the Promotion, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of England and Wales, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules. Except where prohibited and only in the event that the arbitration or class waiver provisions above are not permitted by law, entrants agree that any and all disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of the Promotion or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually without resort to any form of class action (to the extent permitted by law) and exclusively by the appropriate court located in London, England.

  9. By entering the Promotion, entrants agree that, and expressly consent that, except where prohibited, the Sponsor may use each entrant’s name, likeness, and city/state/country for publicity purposes (including, without limitation, advertising or internet usage, including posting a list of winners) without compensation. These Terms and Conditions shall be written and agreed upon in the English language. Any translation into any other language shall not be an official version thereof, and in the event of any conflict in interpretation between the English version and such translation, the English version shall control.

  10. Sponsor retains all ownership rights, title and interest in its intellectual property, including its trademarks, logos, trade dress, brand and copyrights. Any and all goodwill generated by use of Sponsor’s intellectual property will inure to the benefit of Sponsor. Entrant is granted a limited, fully revocable right to use Sponsor’s trademarks and copyrights solely for the purpose of participating in this Promotion, which right to use shall expire upon the termination of this Promotion. User agrees not to modify or otherwise distort Sponsor’s trademarks and logos.

    1. a. THE SPONSOR AND THEIR AFFILIATES AND SUBSIDIARIES, AND ALL RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES, AND AGENTS OF EACH, SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY TOWARDS ENTRANTS AND SHALL BE HELD HARMLESS BY ENTRANTS FOR ANY DAMAGE, LOSS, OR LIABILITY, CAUSES OF ACTION, CLAIMS, SUITS, DEMANDS AND RIGHTS OF WHATEVER KIND AND NATURE WHETHER IN LAW OR IN EQUITY INCURRED BY ENTRANTS, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROMOTION. ENTRANT AGREES THAT UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ENTRANT BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN AWARDS FOR AND ENTRANT HEREBY WAIVES ALL RIGHTS TO CLAIM PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES AND ANY OTHER SPECIAL DAMAGES, AND ANY AND ALL RIGHTS TO HAVE DAMAGES MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCREASED. THIS CLAUSE IS APPLICABLE TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. The Sponsor is not responsible for computer system, phone line, technical, hardware, software or other failures of any kind, lost, interrupted or unavailable network connections, fraud, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmissions, typographical or other errors in printing, advertising or other promotional materials, whether caused by the Sponsor, users, or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Promotion or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of entries which may damage a user’s system or limit an entrant’s ability to participate in the Promotion.

  11.
