The boring legal stuff is at the bottom. Here’s how FitnessTexter works in regular talk:
Fitness businesses use FitnessTexter to send out a text message coupon to interested potential clients. When someone texts a gym’s keyword to 95577, here’s what happens:
1. The end-user (the person who texted the keyword to 95577) will get a text message coupon(and bring a friend offer) to the gym. Sending this text message is the same as sending a text message to a friend. FitnessTexter is not a premium texting service. Standard message and data rates may apply, depending on the end-user’s mobile phone plan. At the same time, the gym owner will get an email from FitnessTexter with the end-user’s phone number. This is called a sales lead email. The gym owner or their staff is allowed to call the end-user about the promotional deal they signed up for. They are NOT allowed to robocall the end-user or talk to the end-user about any other promotion besides the one the end user signed up for.
If a gym owner or their staff contacts you about something other than the promotion you signed up for, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-223-5924 and report the business. We will contact the business and remind them they are breaking the law.
2. The end-user will receive 1 text message reminder in the future, 3 days after signing up. This reminder is solely for reminding the end-user about the promotion for which they signed up for and are not for advertising anything new.
After the reminder text messages, the end-user will not receive any more text messages from FitnessTexter. We do not allow clients to “mass text” people with our system. It’s purely for sending out a one-time coupon and 1 reminder message.
If you don’t wish to receive the reminder text message, text the word STOP to 95577. Text HELP to 95577 for more information.
