If you do not want to receive such email messages, you will be given the option to opt out or change your preferences. We also use your information to send you Service-related emails (e.g., account verification, purchase and billing confirmations and reminders, technical and security notices). For certain Service-related e-mails, the only way to opt-out is to terminate your account with TextIt.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable Content information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Third Party Links
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
To help protect the privacy of data you transmit through the Services, where personally identifiable information is requested, TextIt uses SSL/TLS to encrypt the information that is sent between your computer and TextIt's servers. In addition, TextIt takes steps to protect the user data we collect against unauthorized access. We host with Amazon Web Services, and all TextIt data is stored solely in the United States. Our servers are protected by firewalls, and all access to those servers is permitted only through encrypted channels that are FIPS-140-2 compliant, but no encryption is done on data at rest.

Please note that any messages transmitted via channels with which the Services integrate may be accessible to certain third-party organizations, such as mobile networks, SMS gateway services and social media services. These organizations have their own rules, policies, and security measures controlling who has access to messages transmitted through their services.
