How We Use Your Mobile Phone Number for SMS/Text Message Communications

When you opt-in to receive SMS communications from us, you consent to receive communications via SMS, text message, or other electronic means. To participate in this service, you are required to provide a mobile phone number. For more information regarding our SMS communications, including how to opt-out of receiving these communications, see our SMS Terms of Service. We may share the mobile phone number you provided to us when you opted-in to receiving SMS communication with service providers who support these services, but we will not share your mobile phone number with third parties for their own marketing purposes without your consent. Text messages are distributed via third party mobile network providers and, therefore, we cannot control certain factors relating to message delivery. Depending on the recipient’s mobile carrier, it may not be possible to transmit the text message to the recipient successfully; nor is content available on all carriers. We do not claim or guarantee availability or performance of this service, including liability for transmission delays or message failures.
