Ancillary to the General Content and Exclusive Membership Content, One Country provides certain promotions on the Site ("Promotions") for chances to win prizes as provided on the Site ("Prizes") (the chances to win Prizes through the Promotions are referred to as the "Sweepstakes"). Participants may enter Promotions by creating an Account (defined below) and/or by either using the Free Alternate Methods of Entry (as defined in the Rules), or as free part of such Participant's purchase of access to Exclusive Membership Content, or by using any other free mechanisms that One Country provide from time to time. Notwithstanding the Exclusive Membership Content, no purchase, payment or other financial contribution is necessary to enter or win a Promotion and the Free Alternate Methods of Entry are always available for all Promotions. The Promotions and all entries thereto are void where prohibited by law through no further act of any party. In addition, if you are registering for or participating in a Promotion, participation is subject to One Country's Official Sweepstakes Rules and Regulations available through the Site and any other rules and regulations applicable to such Promotion, as they may be amended and/or restated from time to time (collectively, the "Rules"). If this TOU conflicts with or is inconsistent with any of the Rules, this TOU shall be controlling.
(b) One Country reserves the right, without prior notice and at any time, to terminate any Promotion and/or the Service (including the Exclusive Membership Content), in whole or in part, or modify or suspend any Promotion and/or the Service, or any portion thereof, in any way, if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Promotion and/or Service is impaired or corrupted or that fraud, breach of confidentiality, or technical problems, failures or malfunctions have destroyed or severely undermined the integrity and/or feasibility of the Promotion and/or Service or if One Country determines, in its sole discretion, that the Promotion and/or Service is otherwise not feasible. In the event One Country is prevented from continuing with the Promotion and/or Service as contemplated herein by any event beyond its control, including but not limited to fire, flood, natural or man-made epidemic of health or other means, earthquake, explosion, labor dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, satellite or equipment failure, riot or civil disturbance, terrorist threat or activity, war (declared or undeclared) or any federal, state or local government law, order, or regulation, public health crisis, order of any court or jurisdiction, or other cause not reasonably within One Country's control (each a "Force Majeure" event or occurrence), then subject to any governmental approval which may be required, One Country shall have the right to modify, suspend, or terminate the Promotion and/or Service. Only the type and quantity of Prizes described in the Rules will be awarded as provided under the Rules. If, due to printing, production, or human errors, or for any reason, more potential winners in any Prize category come forward seeking to claim Prizes in excess of the number of each type of Prize as set forth in the Rules, the winners, or remaining winners, as the case may be, of the advertised number of Prizes available in the Prize category in question may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for such Prize(s) in that Prize category. Inclusion in such drawing shall be your sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances.

If, however, subpart (6) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Section 16 shall be null and void, and neither you nor One Country Entities shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. For more information on AAA and/or AAA Rules and Procedures, you may visit the AAA Website at http://www.adr.org. If a Claim is not subject to arbitration pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 16, then you agree such Claim will be limited to your actual out-of-pocket costs incurred (if any), excluding fees and court costs, to the extent decided your Claim will be decided individually, and to the extent decided your Claim shall not be decided with resort to any form of class or representative action.
