The Alerts allow you to receive various types of notifications about your My Account activity via text messages sent to the mobile number you designate and/or emails sent to the email address you designate. We allow you to choose the types of Alerts you receive. The frequency of Alerts depends on the number/types of Alerts you elect to receive, any triggers you set for such Alerts and/or the frequency of any events to which Alerts relate.
You may opt-in to the Alerts by visiting the Notifications page ("Notifications Page"), providing your mobile number and/or email address in the space(s) provided, selecting the Alerts you want to receive and agreeing to these Terms and Conditions and any other terms and conditions we may specify. When you opt-in to receive text alerts, you will receive an SMS text message confirming you have opted-into the service.
You may opt-out of Alerts by visiting the Notifications Page and de-selecting any Alerts you wish to stop. You may also opt-out of text Alerts by replying "STOP" to any text Alert we send you. However, texting STOP will only opt you out of the specific category of text to which you responded (for example, if you text STOP in response to a High Usage alert because you wish to no longer receive High Usage alerts, you will still receive other Alerts you have opted-into such as “Billing” alerts). When you text STOP to a text Alert, you will receive a text confirming that you have opted out of receiving that category of text Alert. If you have chosen to receive both text and email Alerts and you opt-out of text Alerts via text, you will need to separately opt out of email Alerts by visiting the Notifications Page to stop email Alerts. PLEASE NOTE THAT OPTING OUT OF MY ACCOUNT TEXT MESSAGE ALERTS WILL NOT OPT YOU OUT OF OTHER TEXT MESSAGES THAT WE MAY SEND YOU WHICH DO NOT RELATE TO YOUR MY ACCOUNT.
Anyone with access to your mobile phone may be able to view any text Alerts we send you, and anyone with access to your email Site may be able to view any email Alerts we send you.
