4.         Tax Liability and Limitations.                        The Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) has taken the position that amounts paid for chances in raffles, lotteries or similar drawings for valuable prizes do not constitute gifts, and consequently, do not qualify as deductible charitable contributions.  HFPCR takes no responsibility for any tax liabilities the Winner may incur, and HFPCR encourages the Winner to consult with a tax professional. This offer is void where prohibited by law, and all federal, state and local laws apply.

            (a)        In the event Winner elects the Car as the Grand Prize, Winner shall be responsible for the payment of all government taxes and/or assessments, including, but not limited to, all state and governmental fees (including title and registration fees), local tax, sales tax, state tax, federal tax, and any other costs incurred when title of the Car is transferred to Winner.  HFPCR makes no guarantee that the IRS’s appraised value of the Car will be the same value as determined by Dealer for purposes of determining any tax liability due from Winner.

            (b)       In the event Winner elects the Cash Prize, Winner shall be responsible for the payment of all government taxes and/or assessments, including, but not limited to, local tax, state tax and federal tax.  HFPCR will withhold all appropriate and required local tax, state tax and federal tax, and HFPCR will remit the balance of the Cash Prize to Winner.

6.         General Provisions.

            (a)        The Car will be transferred to Winner “AS IS, WHERE IS AND WITH ALL FAULTS.”  NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES ARE GIVEN AND NO AFFIRMATION OF HFPCR BY WORDS AND/OR CONDUCT WILL CONSTITUTE AN EXPRESS WARRANTY.

            (b)       Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Raffle, the Grand Prize, or these Rules, or breach thereof, including disputes with respect to whether the subject matter of any controversy or claim is within the scope of these Rules, will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of California, and will be settled by binding arbitration in Los Angeles, California, USA under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and administered by the AAA.  To begin an arbitration proceeding, ticket purchasers must send a letter requesting arbitration to: Executive Director, 2990 S. Sepulveda Boulevard, Suite 300C, Los Angeles, California 90064; if HFPCR requests arbitration, it will send notice to the email address and/or address provided by the ticket purchaser on the Ticket order form.  The party requesting arbitration must also provide a copy of the request to the AAA in accordance with AAA’s then-current process, which information can be found at www.adr.org. All arbitration proceedings will be conducted in English.  Such arbitration will be heard before a panel of three (3) neutral arbitrators. Each of the arbitrators must be i) a lawyer licensed to practice law in the United States with a minimum of fifteen (15) years of legal practice or senior level business experience or a retired judge with a minimum of five (5) years of service on the bench, ii) an individual with at least five (5) years of experience as an arbitrator, and iii) on the roster of neutrals of the AAA or similar nationally recognized ADR organization.  The panel shall be selected using the following process: Within fifteen (15) days after the commencement of arbitration, each party shall select one person meeting the specified qualifications to act as neutral arbitrator, and the two thus selected shall select a third neutral arbitrator meeting the specified qualifications within fifteen (15) days of their appointment.  The third neutral arbitrator shall act as the chair of the arbitration panel.  If the arbitrators selected by the parties are unable to or fail to agree upon the third arbitrator, the third arbitrator shall be selected by the American Arbitration Association.  Notwithstanding this arbitration provision, HFPCR may seek emergency, temporary, or preliminary injunctive relief from a competent court of law or equity pending the final ruling of the arbitrator(s), without any requirement to post bond, to prevent irreparable harm arising from any unlawful acts or breach of these Rules by a ticket purchaser.  NEITHER PARTY WILL PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION FOR ANY CLAIMS RELATED TO THE RAFFLE, THESE RULES OR THE GRAND PRIZE.  ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDING WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION.

IF FOR ANY REASON AN ACTION, SUIT, CLAIM OR PROCEEDING PROCEEDS IN COURT RATHER THAN IN AN ARBITRATION, (I) SUCH ACTION, SUIT, CLAIM OR PROCEEDING SHALL BE SUBJECT TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICATION OF THE FEDERAL OR STATE COURTS, AS APPLICABLE, SITTING IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CALIFORNIA AND EACH PARTY WAIVES ANY CLAIM OF INCONVENIENT FORUM, AND (II) EACH PARTY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, SUIT, CLAIM OR PROCEEDING BROUGHT TO ENFORCE, DEFEND OR INTERPRET ANY RIGHTS OR REMEDIES ARISING HEREUNDER, RELATING TO OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE RULES, THE RAFFLE OR THE GRAND PRIZE OFFERED OR MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE RAFFLE.
            (c)        By purchasing a Ticket and participating in the Raffle, all participants acknowledge and agree that HFPCR has the right, in its sole discretion, to elect not to proceed with the Raffle for any reason, and, in such event, a participant's sole remedy shall be a refund of the full price paid by  participant and received by HFPCR for each Ticket purchased, without interest.
