- GOVERNING LAW: In the event of a dispute between you and the Sponsor, either may choose to resolve the dispute by binding arbitration, as described below, instead of in court.

DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS ARE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. This arbitration agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.

THIS MEANS NEITHER YOU NOR 44° NORTH® VODKA MAY JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS IN ARBITRATION OR COURT BY OR AGAINST OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY, OR LITIGATE IN COURT OR ARBITRATE ANY CLAIMS AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF A CLASS OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. Only a court, and not an arbitrator, shall determine the validity and effect of the Class Action Waiver. Even if all parties have opted to litigate a claim in court, you or 44° North® Vodka may elect arbitration with respect to any claim made by a new party or any new claims later asserted in that lawsuit. 44° North® Vodka will not choose to arbitrate any claim you bring in small claims court. However, if such a claim is transferred, removed, or appealed to a different court, 44° North® Vodka may then choose to arbitrate and you agree that in so doing, 44° North® Vodka will not have waived any rights. Any action brought in a court against 44° North® Vodka shall be brought in the State Courts of Idaho in Ada County or in the federal court in the District of Idaho and you and 44° North® Vodka both agree to be subject to personal jurisdiction in the State of Idaho. Except where otherwise indicated, the laws of the United States and Idaho govern this contract. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may pursue injunctive or other equitable remedies in the above-identified courts and such claims shall not be subject to arbitration.
