SMS Text Alert provides you (the SMS Text Alert customer) the tools and resources to collect your subscribers’ contact information on an opt-in basis. Subscribers, on the other hand, have the ability to opt-out of your distribution lists easily and at any time. Subscribers can grant or revoke your ability to view and export their contact information by logging into the Subscription Management and unchecking the box labeled: “Allow access to my contact information.”
NOTE: Receiving mobile text messages from SMS Text Alert is completely FREE of charge; however, standard text messaging rates from wireless providers still apply.
SMS Text Alert allows you to collect email addresses, instant message screen names, phone numbers, and other custom data when subscribers opt-in to join your distribution list(s) via an Online Sign-up page powered by SMS Text Alert. When joining a distribution list, we will ask subscribers for personal information such as their name, phone number, IM screen name, and email address.

In addition to Online Sign-up pages, you can also collect mobile phone numbers when subscribers text your Mobile Keyword (that you create) to SMS Text Alert’s shared short code. By texting your Mobile Keyword, subscribers are opting-in their mobiles phone numbers to join your distribution list(s). By a subscriber texting in to your mobile keyword, they are giving implied consent to view and access their mobile numbers and also send them text messages. Subscribers can remove their mobile phone numbers from your database at anytime by replying to any text message they receive from SMS Text Alert with “STOP“. They can also change permission for you to view (or export) their contact information by unchecking “Allow access to my contact information.” box while they are signed into the Subscription Management page.
SMS Text Alert does not share, sell, or rent any contact information with any party. Implied consent is when your subscriber texts your Mobile Keyword to SMS Text Alert’s short code. However, if the subscriber signs into his/her own Subscription Management page and unchecks this consent, the contact information will not be viewable or exportable even if you are still able to send messages to the same contact information. Explicit consent is when your subscriber checks “Allow access to my contact information.” option in Subscription Management page.
NOTE: Whether explicit or implied, you are not allowed to share your subscribers’ contact info with any third party for any reason. Also, SMS Text Alert may use or disclose information, including your personal information and your subscribers’ contact information, under the following very limited circumstances:
