Boycott General Mills final

Remember to stay active in campaigns!

DO NOT “LIKE” GENERAL MILLS for unethical and manipulative business practices.  Although the language has been changed in their contracts (Forced Accountability) let’s not forget the inconsistent and contradictory language, by stating other companies used the same language in contracts yet none could be found.  

 According to Mashable (http://http//mashable.com/2014/04/17/general-mills-facebook-like) when asked what a consumer should do, Richard Daynard, Northeastern Distinguished Professor of Law, responded, “A smart consumer would actually not buy General Mills products.”

Cheerios parent company General Mills updated the privacy policy on its website. The new language alerts consumers that they waive their right to sue the company if they download coupons or join one of the company’s “online communities,” which legal experts took to mean social media sites.

According to Mashable either though legal misunderstanding or media backlash: A rep for General Mills, though, now says those communities don’t include Facebook. Those who join one of the online communities are required to use informal negotiation via email or go through arbitration — rather than the courts — to seek relief if they have a dispute with the company. A General Mills rep offered the following statement from the company:

While it rarely happens, arbitration is an efficient way to resolve disputes — and many companies take a similar approach. We even cover the cost of arbitration in most cases. So this is just a policy update, and we’ve tried to communicate in a clear and visible way.

(Law experts contacted by Mashable say they believe General Mills is the first food company to require consumers to enter into such an agreement)  Read more:  https://www.killingmycareer.com/uncategorized/general-mills-showing-people-how-not-to-like-their-comp…
