CTIA regulations prohibit certain campaigns such as text-to-win and financial offers by shared short code or transmitting undesirable content such as violence, pornography, alcohol, illegal drugs, and other prohibited material described in this document.

Message Launch reserves the right to suspend or terminate your account at any time, at its sole discretion, and without prior warning or refund if your account activity is reasonably believed to violate any term in this agreement, applicable law, or industry regulation. Violation of applicable anti-spam regulation may also cause third-party legal action against you. Message Launch also reserves the right to refuse or cancel service if Message Launch believes that your conduct is harmful to the interests of Message Launch and its affiliates, or if payment is past due. Message Launch reserves the sole discretion and right to permanently delete archived data after 30 days of account termination.

Permission-Based Subscription Requirements

 

Every outgoing email via the Message Launch service must contain a link that allows the recipient to unsubscribe from your distribution list(s). All mobile messages must conform to the latest available best-practice guidelines published by the Mobile Marketing Association, which you agree to review before using Message Launch's service. 

IMPORTANT for Mobile Keywords, Online Signup Forms, and Other Collection Methods: For mobile keywords, you must include the opt-in disclosure shown below (after you have filled in the appropriate fields) in all of your promotional materials in all media, website, printed material, digital and event promotions, broadcasts, and any other material promoting your mobile keyword. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and Cellular Telephone Industries Association (CTIA) strictly prohibit omission of this disclosure in whole or in part.

Privacy and Anti-Spam Policies

 

The following terms and various other sections of this document constitute an introduction to the concept of spam and the general contours of a responsible, permission-based campaign. This general information is not an exhaustive source for applicable laws, guidelines, and compliance responsibilities pertaining to your use of Message Launch's service. In the event of any conflict between the information below and any law or industry regulation, you are to observe the applicable law or regulation.

  • What is spam? Spam is any type of unsolicited message. You should not assume that an existing relationship with any recipient constitutes permission to send messages. For example, if a customer disclosed a mobile number in the course of business but did not give you specific permission to send messages, you cannot send messages to that number.

  • What constitutes consent? As required by law, all message recipients must be clearly and fully notified of (1) the collection of their contact information, (2) the purpose of its collection, and (3) the use of their contact information. All message recipients must also give explicit consent prior to receiving your message. The required record of consent differs depending on the nature of your message.

 

Solicitation (e.g. promotions, promotional announcements, coupons, and deals):
NOTE: You are required to obtain prior express WRITTEN or ELECTRONIC consent from each contact to send solicitation messages via text regardless of a previous or standing business relationship with the contact. See below for more details.


Non‑solicitation (e.g. reminders, alerts, and appointments):
NOTE: You are required to obtain express consent from each contact before you send messages regardless of a previous or standing business relationship with the contact. Such consent may be written or verbal but must be documented.

Purchasing a product or service from you, participating in an event, or "liking" or "following" your business on Facebook or Twitter does not constitute consent to receive messages from you, and cannot be a condition for opting in to receive messages from you. In addition, subscribers must specifically opt-in to receive text messages from you.  If you require confirmation of opt-ins to your service but do not receive a response from a given contact, you do not have sufficient consent and may not send messages to that contact.

  • What constitutes prior express written consent? The revised TCPA rule defines prior express written consent as a signed written agreement that clearly and conspicuously discloses the following to the consumer.

    • Signing the agreement authorizes the seller to deliver messages to a designated phone number by use of an automatic system.

  •  As indicated in the ESIGN Act, the required signature may be obtained via email, online form, text message, telephone keypad, or voice recording. For more details on the revised TCPA regulation, click here.

  • You agree that you will not access or otherwise use any third-party list of email addresses or phone numbers or otherwise engage in unsolicited messaging in connection with our service.

  • You agree to all terms set forth in Message Launch's Privacy Policy and Anti-Spam Policy.

  • You agree that you will add, edit, access and otherwise use in connection with Message Launch's service only contact information with proof, which you shall retain, of each subscriber's' prior express written consent to receive solicitation from you. Message Launch reserves the right, at its sole and absolute discretion, to deny access to functions, to impose a stringent qualification process, to require proof of consent or opt-in method, or to require documentation of you or your organization's legal identity.

  • You agree to represent truthfully your identity, the identity of your organization, your product or service, availability, pricing, benefits, and any other offering aspects to your subscribers in all messages.

  • You agree to comply with all local, state, and federal regulations as well as general practices governing your content or promotion type.

  • You agree that any data in your database may be altered by Message Launch at the subscriber’s request due to CCPA, GDPR, and other data protection laws.

Message Launch has a no-tolerance policy toward spam. Message Launch does not assume the duty or obligation to monitor messages. However, Message Launch reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to monitor any and all messages created or sent by you or any third party at any time without prior notice to ensure that they conform to guidelines and policies pertaining to our Website and services.

Evading Message Launch's monitoring system or the transmission of spam messages through the system violates these Terms of Use. If you know of or suspect any violators, please notify us immediately by clicking here.

Any controversy or claim subject to this arbitration provision shall be decided by one arbitrator selected by the parties, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Each party shall bear its costs of arbitration.

Amendments

No modification, amendment, supplement to, or waiver of this Agreement or any of its provisions, including those by custom, usage of trade, or course of dealing, will be binding on the Parties unless made in writing and duly signed by the Parties.

Waiver

 

A failure or delay of Message Launch to enforce at any time any of the provisions of this Agreement, or to exercise any option provided in this Agreement, or to require at any time performance of any of the provisions in this Agreement, will not be construed to be a waiver of such provision of this Agreement, nor will it excuse the other Party’s performance of such, nor affect any rights at a later time to enforce the provision.

Severability

 

If any provision of this Agreement is found invalid, illegal, or unenforceable by a tribunal or court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain valid and enforceable according to its terms. The invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provision will be replaced by a mutually acceptable provision which, being valid, legal, and enforceable, comes closest to the intention of the Parties. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be excessively broad as to duration, geographical scope, activity, or subject, it is to be construed by limiting and reducing it, so as to be enforceable to the extent compatible with applicable law.
