Tetherball enables users, also referred to as “Members”, to opt in to mobile services via email, website, and/or their mobile phone for the purpose of becoming a member of CiCi’s Mobile Pizza Perks mobile marketing program. Users are responsible for obtaining access to the Services, and that access may involve third party fees, costs, or expenses (such as those incurred in association with Internet access, wireless telephone access, or other access and communication services fees). Msg&Data Rates May Apply. Please check your plan or call your telecommunications provider to be sure of all costs associated with the use of your mobile telephone. You can gain access to the Service by providing written consent to receive text message (“opting in”), by email, website or by texting PERKS to 474992 to receive CiCi’s Mobile Pizza Perks Promo Alerts. You may contact Tetherballl 877-763-8339 or email@example.com for more information.
When you opt-in to receive the Services, you will receive a confirmation text message on your mobile phone and must reply with your zip code to the confirmation text message to register or become a member for the Services. If you do not reply you’re your zip code, you may receive one reminder message that prompts you to reply with your zip code. If you do not reply with your zip code after this one reminder message, you will receive no more messages from the Services. Once you have opted in for the Services, you will receive 4-7 messages, announcements, offers, or coupons per month from CiCi’s Pizza. Your access to the Services may be restricted or limited based upon your telecommunications provider and service plan.
You may opt out of the service at any time by sending a text message of STOP to 474992 or by emailing your request to opt-out, along with your mobile phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may send a text message of HELP to 474992 in the case that you need help regarding the Services. You may call Tetherball at 877-763-8339 for more information.
The CAN-SPAM act, state and federal Do-Not-Call registries, and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 exist to prevent unsolicited telemarketing calls and the use of automatic dialing machines to call wireless devices, not to prevent such calls to persons who have requested to be contacted. Under Federal rules and those of most states, “safe harbors” exist to allow a consumer to expressly grant permission to be contacted even though they have registered their phone number with a state or federal Do-Not-Call registry. By accepting these Terms and submitting a query or request to Tetherball via voice, email, text, or internet, you expressly agree that we may send a text message to your wireless device or email via an SMS text message or email or WAP Push Message or MMS message. You are granting express written consent to receive our messages even if you are registered on a Do-Not-Call registry. You expressly agree that, as part of the Services provided by Tetherball, you may receive promotional communications, alerts, and third party advertising materials from Tetherball or the Company via text message.
