Now that you know how easy it is to analyze Skout's TOS, let's talk more about contracts. That way, you'll understand your rights as a consumer.
About Contracts, Terms of Service, and Arbitration Clauses
Whenever you create an account for an online platform or a social media site, they ask you to read and agree to their terms of service or TOS. The document is usually many pages, and most people don't bother to read the whole thing. Roughly 97% of people aged 18 to 34 don't bother reading it at all.
Those contracts usually include specifics about how you can use the site and how the platform can use your information. For example, you agree to behave within a set code of conduct, and the platform might agree not to sell your private information. But Skout and other sites and tech companies like PlayStation, Airbnb, and Shopify, are known to violate their contracts.
They get away with this because most consumers don't know they have any legal recourse, aside from hiring a lawyer. But as a consumer, you don't need a lawyer, thanks to arbitration clauses hidden within the contract.
What Is an Arbitration Clause or Arbitration Agreement?
According to Harvard Law School, arbitration agreements are a contractual promise that says both parties should seek arbitration or mediation if there is a breach in contract.
- Arbitration clauses protect consumers from battling a financial giant like Instagram or a foreign company like TikTok in court.
- They're also beneficial to the company because they know they can settle a TOS violation quickly, rather than putting their expensive attorneys into a courtroom.
- So arbitration clauses are a win-win for everyone involved.
However, to take advantage of them, you need to know they exist, and you need to call the company out for their breach of contract. That's where DoNotPay can help. Just analyze your Skout terms of service, and let the app generate a legal document. Send that on to Skout and wait for your compensation.
But that's not all you can do with the app.
