Don’t Let Dropbox Drop Your Rights

On behalf of Charles G. Monnett III & Associates

Dropbox – a popular service for storing and sharing files online – is asking its users to surrender their constitutional rights. Tell Dropbox today not to drop your rights!

Recently, Dropbox announced that it’s changing its terms of service by adding a forced arbitration clause, a ban on consumers joining together in class actions and other offensive policy changes – a serious blow for its customers.

Don’t stand by while corporations deny consumer rights and evade accountability.

Tell Dropbox: Stop ransacking your customers’ rights. Drop the clause!

Corporations are increasingly using these terms to deny consumers their rights. The forced arbitration clause means that if you ever have a dispute with the company, you can’t go to a public court. You’ll have to go alone to a private, secretive tribunal chosen by Dropbox.

Class-action bans prevent you from joining with other customers to hold companies accountable for deceptive, fraudulent and other harmful practices.

For example: Dropbox is trusted with its users’ content. If Dropbox fails to adequately protect the content from a security breach and users suffer losses as a result, only the few customers with the time and resources to seek justice individually – in secret arbitration that is stacked against them – stand a chance to recover their losses. Meanwhile, Dropbox can escape real accountability for potential bad actions.

Take Justice Back and the Fair Arbitration Now coalition urge you to join us in telling Dropbox to restore its customers’ rights.

Tell Dropbox to drop the clause: Add your name to the petition demanding that Dropbox remove its forced arbitration clause.
