ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY OTHERWISE HAVE. IT PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF MOST DISPUTES THROUGH ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF COURT TRIALS AND CLASS ACTIONS. ARBITRATION IS MORE INFORMAL THAN A LAWSUIT IN COURT, USES A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY, AND DISCOVERY IS MORE LIMITED. ARBITRATION IS FINAL AND BINDING AND SUBJECT TO ONLY VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT. THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THESE TERMS.

You agree that any claim, controversy or dispute (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) you may have at law or in equity against IHOP, its parent subsidiary or affiliated entities, or any of their respective officers, directors, employees or agents (all such individuals and entities collectively referred to herein as the “IHOP Entities”) arising out of or relating in any way to the Program, Pancoins or any reward, your participation in the Program, these Terms or the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate (each, a “Dispute”) will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in the following paragraph. Please read this paragraph carefully. It affects your rights and will have a substantial impact on how Disputes are resolved. You agree that whenever you have a Dispute, you will send a written notice to IHOP (“Demand”). You agree that the requirements of this paragraph will apply even to disputes that may have arisen before you accepted these Terms. You must send the Demand to the following address (the “Notice Address”):450 N. Brand Blvd., 7th Floor, Glendale, CA 91203, Attn: Legal Department. You agree that you will not take any legal action, including filing a lawsuit or demanding arbitration, until 10 business days after you send a Demand. If the disagreement stated in the Demand is not resolved to your satisfaction within such 10 business days, the Dispute (1) will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “Arbitrator”) and conducted before a sole arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedure effective September 15, 2005 (as may be amended) and as modified by the agreement to arbitrate in this paragraph; (2) this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16; (3) the arbitration shall be held in Los Angeles, California; (4) the arbitrator’s decision shall be controlled by these Terms and any of the other agreements referenced herein that the applicable user may have entered into; (5) the arbitrator shall apply California law, without regard to its choice of law or conflict of law rules or principles that would result in applying the law of any other jurisdiction, consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (6) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis; arbitration can decide only your and/or the applicable IHOP Entity’s individual claims; the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (7) the arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against you or any IHOP Entity; (8) in the event that the administrative fees and deposits that must be paid to initiate arbitration against any IHOP Entity exceed $125 USD, and you are unable (or not required under the rules of AAA) to pay any fees and deposits that exceed this amount, IHOP agrees to pay them on your behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator; and (9) with the exception of subpart (6) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules of AAA, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (6) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor the affected IHOP Entity shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. If, for any reason, the American Arbitration Association is unable or unwilling to conduct the arbitration, you may file your case with any national arbitration company.
