ExxonMobil continues to enforce no-porn contract restrictions with independent retailers.

Twelve major oil companies contractually prohibit their independent retailers from selling pornography at approximately 100,000 retail locations.
ExxonMobil enforces contract terms, requires retailer to remove porn magazines after concerned citizen reported the store.

Florida Family Association influenced 12 Major Oil companies from 1998 to 2004 to adopt marketing agreement language which prohibits 100,000 retail locations from selling porn.   
James S. recalled a Mobil branded station in Springfield Vermont which sold pornographic magazines after reading Florida Family Association’s July 13th email alert about Marathon Oil requiring one of their retailers to stop selling the magazines.  So James sent an email regarding the store’s sale of pornography to Michael Roman, ExxonMobil Franchise Manager using the contact information provided by Florida Family Association.

EXXON MOBIL responded with the following email which reported that the store in question had removed the pornographic magazines:

I followed with our Territory Manager who followed with the Branded Wholesaler that supplies this dealer site and the following was the response I received on 7/13 after bringing this to their attention:

I just got off of the phone with Tom and he has assured me that all materials have already been removed from the dealer operated site.

Please let me know if you need anything else.

Please feel free to send an email of appreciation to Michael Roman, ExxonMobil Franchise Manager.  His email address is michael.j.roman@exxonmobil.com  You may want to include the following statement in your email “I would like to thank ExxonMobil for having and enforcing marketing agreement provisions which prohibit their branded stores from selling explicit materials.  Thank you for making a difference in our communities.”

Thank you, James C., for investing just a couple of minutes of your time to help clean up our moral environment by reporting this store to ExxonMobil.  He used the contract restrictions that Florida Family Association worked diligently on for six years to do what we hoped would be done for many years to come by many concerned citizens.

Florida Family Association influenced the following 12 MAJOR OIL COMPANIES from 1998 to 2004 to adopt Marketing Agreement terms that would contractually prohibit the sale of pornographic materials by independent retailers who sell their brand of gasoline at approximately 100,000 locations:

If you see a convenience store that sells one of the brands of gasoline listed below that is also selling pornographic magazines or videos, there is a good chance the store may be violating the terms of the marketing agreement with the major oil company.  Sending an email to report the store to the major oil company may result in the removal of the pornographic magazines or videos.

TO REPORT A STORE to a major oil company simply click on the appropriate email address below and include the following information in your email message to the major oil company official:

•    You are reporting a branded (list major gasoline brand) store that sells pornography.
•    You are aware that the major oil company has marketing agreements with independent retailers which prohibit them from selling pornographic materials.
•    Store name and address.
•    Type of materials sold (magazines, videos, DVDs.)

Please send any response that you receive from the major oil company to Florida Family Association by using the Contact button at the Floridafamily.org web site.

Allow approximately four weeks for the major oil company to take action. If the store continues to sell the pornography after emailing the information to the major oil company, you may need to send a second email to the company. If the store continues to sell pornography after a second email to the major oil company, please submit the information on the store to Florida Family Association by using the Contact button at the Floridafamily.org web site.

Florida Family Association strongly recommends that you do NOT discuss your concerns regarding the store’s alleged contractual violation with the owner or employees of the store.

Shell Oil Company no longer enforces their marketing agreements which once prohibited independent retailers from selling pornography because they became a major supplier of gasoline to Circle K Stores.
