Note on TXT2GET's Privacy Policy

TXT2GET has developed its Privacy Policy to be consistent with the guidelines provided by the Privacy Commissioner and the Privacy Act. The Policy is available to all users and texters on the TXT2GET site. The practice of coupling people's email addresses to their mobile numbers and automatically sending them the email when they interact with TXT2GET a second time is designed to enhance the user experience. It also greatly increases the results for business users, as texters do not have to provide their email address every time they want to interact with a TXT2GET keyword that triggers an "email" response campaign.

TXT2GET also passes on texter's mobile/email details to the businesses with whom the texter interacts in a similar way to which ISPs act as intermediaries to such communications between consumers and businesses.

At this stage, the convenience to texters and businesses of these policies has outweighed any privacy concerns, and as yet there have been no objections raised.

Once texter details are passed to the business that ran the campaign, it is up to that business to ensure it complies with the anti-Spam legislation when re-contacting those people.
