You scroll to the bottom or your page to the signature line and you assume the contract is benign. However, when you sign or you click “I agree”, most of the time you are signing over your legal rights to the corporation, allowing them to set the terms and places for arbitration, and abandoning your privacy.

Fortunately, Theresa Amato of Citizen Works and the Fair Contracts project and other people are fighting back. Now it’s up to you to hear what you can do to regain your rights. Listen and learn.
