Text Message Services.

Folio may offer one or more mobile message programs  (collectively, the “Message Service”) that allows Customer and Authorized Users to receive SMS/MMS mobile messages by opting-in such as through online or application-based enrollment forms.  Regardless of the opt-in method Customer or an Authorized User uses to enroll, it agrees that its use of the Message Service is governed by this Agreement. Folio does not charge for the Message Service, but Customer or the Authorized User is responsible for all charges and fees associated with mobile messaging imposed by its wireless carrier and Customer and the Authorized User acknowledges that its carrier may charge or deduct usage credit from its account when Customer or  the Authorized User texts Folio or Folio sends messages to Customer or  the Authorized User. Message and data rates may apply. By enrolling a telephone number in the Message Service, Customer or the Authorized User authorizes Folio to send recurring SMS and MMS mobile messages to the number specified by Customer or  the Authorized User, and Customer or the Authorized User represents that it is authorized to receive mobile messages at such number. The messages sent through the Message Service may include order notifications, approval requirements, receipt reminders, customer support messages, and other content. If Customer or an Authorized User does not wish to continue participating in a Message Service program Folio offers, Customer or the Authorized User agrees to reply STOP, END, CANCEL, UNSUBSCRIBE, or QUIT to any mobile message it receives from that program to opt out. Customer or the Authorized User may receive an additional mobile message confirming its decision to opt out. Customer or the Authorized User understands and agrees that the foregoing options are the only reasonable methods of opting out. Customer or the Authorized User acknowledges that Folio’s text message platform may not recognize and respond to unsubscribe requests that alter, change, or modify the STOP, END, CANCEL, UNSUBSCRIBE or QUIT keyword commands, such as the use of different spellings or the addition of other words or phrases to the command, and agrees that Folio and its service providers will have no liability for failing to honor such requests. Customer or the Authorized User also understands and agrees that any other method of opting out, including, but not limited to, texting words other than those keyword commands set forth above or verbally requesting one of Folio’s employees to remove Customer or the Authorized User from Folio’s list, is not a reasonable means of opting out. To the extent Customer or the Authorized User subscribes to more than one Message Service program that Folio operates, Customer or the Authorized User must unsubscribe from each program separately.  For Message Service support or assistance, text the HELP keyword in response to any message received through the Message Service or email Folio at Please note that the use of this email address is not an acceptable method of opting out of the Message Service.  Opt outs must be submitted in accordance with the procedures set forth above. Folio may change any short code or telephone number it uses to operate the Message Service at any time with notice to Customer or the Authorized User. Customer or the Authorized User acknowledges that any messages, including any STOP or HELP requests, Customer or the Authorized User sends to a short code or telephone number that Folio has changed may not be received and Folio is not responsible for honoring requests made in such messages. The Message Service may not be available in all areas or supported by all carriers or all devices. Customer or the Authorized User should check with its carrier for details. Delivery of mobile messages is subject to effective transmission from Customer’s or the Authorized User’s wireless carrier/network operator and is outside of Folio’s control. Folio and the wireless carriers supported by the Message Service are not liable for any failed, delayed or undelivered messages. If Customer or the Authorized User decides to change its mobile phone number, Customer or the Authorized User agrees to first opt out of each Message Service program in which its number is enrolled. For clarity, Customer or the Authorized User acknowledges and agrees that any disputes between Customer or the Authorized User and Folio related to the Message Service will be governed by Section 15.8 (Arbitration).
