You agree that the subscribers of the phone numbers to which you initiate any text messages through the Services have consented or otherwise opted in to the receipt of your messages as required by any applicable law or regulation.

SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
We implement security measures we believe are reasonable to protect your information. It is important that you protect and maintain the security of your account and you need to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account. No website, mobile application or Internet transmission is completely secure, and therefore we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches or other type of misuse will never occur. We may post a notice via the Services if a security breach occurs. We may also send you notice by the contact information you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive written notice of a data privacy or security breach. If you have reason to believe that your personal information that we have collected or our Services' security has been breached, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org
