Our privacy policy does not extend to texting services being supported on "digital numbers" aka "long codes". In 2014 US mobile carriers banned the use of long codes for Application to Person (A2P) uses. End user privacy is our highest priority. We support communications through Short Codes (5-6 digit numbers in the US) that are leased through the Common Short Code Administration and provisioned on the mobile carrier gateways using Tier1 connections. Short codes are the only numbers that are approved for A2P uses because they are provisioned with each carrier and must provide "fully automated opt-out" functionality.
Standard message and data rates may apply. Text STOP to opt-out. Click here for end users privacy and terms and conditions of texting with 898211.
