there's a lot of fine print in our lives.think about it. whenever you open an app -- bank account -- or even log onto a website -- there are several pages of sometimes hard to understand legal jargon.but when you blindly accept those terms -- you could be giving up your day in court.forced arbitration is common in contracts -- which means customers often can't sue a company in court.you could be giving up your privacy.sometimes -- just by using or logging on to a website means you agree to a company's terms and conditions. many times that means your habits on the site and your data can be used or resold.if
you don't read the fine print when opening or changing a bank account -- you may not know how much you really owe. last year -- the country's biggest banks racked in more than 6-point-4 billion dollars. just for atm and overdraft fees.it can be hard to avoid such charges -- because they aren't easy to find.so the next time -- spend some time reading that fine print.it may affect what you do and even save you some money in the future. it didn't take the warriors brass long to get into the playoff moodtoday workers were busy putting up all the playoff signage at oracle arena the theme this year again is "strength in numbers"there is one notable addition the image of kevin durant in a warrior uniform this is the 3rd straight season the warriors have earned the top seed in the western conference and best record in the nba assuring them home court advantage throughout the playoffshere is
