ACCEPTING THE TERMS
By accessing the Site or using any of the features, functions, information and/or tools and services located on the Site, whether as a Visitor or registered Customer, you agree to be bound by this Agreement.

By registering any mobile device(s) on the Service, Customer agrees and understands that information concerning the location of the device(s) may be disclosed to others as part of the Service.
a. The Service consists of a hosted Web enabled application, data access and third party network access in order to obtain location information (latitude, longitude and radius) from mobile devices under your ownership and/or control.

Customer further acknowledges and agrees that SSD is not the underlying wireless carrier and that SSD may contract with third parties from time to time in connection with the provision of the Service.
If you texted the word "YES" to the short code and did not receive a response, it's likely that your mobile phone carrier is blocking text messages from Short Codes. Short codes are non-standard phone numbers, and may also be known as Promotional Codes or Computer Generated Codes.
To fix this challenge, contact your mobile phone provider and ask that they enable your account to receive text messages from Short Codes. Make sure to inquire how long it will take for the change to be effective and to receive a text message.
LOCATION PRIVACYLocation coordinate data (latitude, longitude and radius) will only be obtained when a registered account holder has authorized or opted-in to the service, and when the registered account holder initiates a request for the location information from within our secure application.

The mobile phone user can then accept this agreement by replying YES to the Opt-in SMS text message (see "The Service"). At any time the registered account holder can cancel the SSD Service's ability to obtain the location coordinates of their phone by replying STOP to the Opt-In SMS text message or by sending STOP to 84787. Message and data rates may apply.
