In case you haven’t noticed, the world is getting just a tad too ‘sue crazy’, and some companies are trying to avoid becoming the next victim.General Mills, the company that makes such cereals as Cheerios, has announced a new policy. They say if you “like” their Facebook page or use their coupons, you may have just forfeited your right to sue them.

"Should an individual subscribe to one of our publications or download coupons, these terms would apply. But even then, the policy would not and does not preclude a consumer from pursuing a claim. It merely determines a forum for pursuing a claim."

WPRI Channel 12 reported the story and General Mills has issued this statement about their new changes:

“Should an individual subscribe to one of our publications or download coupons, these terms would apply. But even then, the policy would not and does not preclude a consumer from pursuing a claim. It merely determines a forum for pursuing a claim.”

By the way, General Mills is not the first company to do this…banks and credit card companies have already started changing their legal policies as well.
