Terms & Conditions - Verizon Messages with Integrated Messaging Service

 

Terms & Conditions

This Service will give you an integrated and customized messaging experience across your mobile phone, tablet, PC, and other devices.  You can also send group, location and other multimedia messages (“MMS”) in addition to traditional text messages.  Before you start, we want you to know some important things about the Service.

  1. Customer Agreement.  When you signed up to be a customer of Verizon Wireless (“VZW”), you entered into a Customer Agreement with us.  This Service is subject to all of the terms in that Customer Agreement.  For the current version of the Customer Agreement, visit: www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/support/customer-agreement.
  2. Charges.  Your download and use of the Service will be billed according to your messaging and data plans.  The same rate will be charged per message per recipient regardless of whether you send your message from your mobile phone, tablet, PC, laptop, or other device.  Group messages and messages with attachments will be charged at the MMS rate.  Data usage charges apply when using preview, location, and search functions, and for the synchronization of messages among your devices.  When using the Service outside of the US, Global Data charges will apply when you send and receive MMS messages.  Visit www.vzw.com/global for more information.
  3. Location.  By using location messaging, you consent and permit VZW to disclose your location information to others in order to deliver the Service.  There is no representation, warranty or guarantee of reliability or accuracy, completeness or timeliness of any location data provided through the Service.  By using the Glympse feature, you consent and permit VZW to disclose your location information to all participants in the conversation and others to whom the participants forward or send your Glympse attachment, which may include social media sites or public forums. Glympse attachments are stored on the mobile devices from which they are sent and received until they are deleted.  Messages sent using the Glympse feature will share your location and allow recipients to track your location and movements for at least 15 minutes, so carefully review the settings on the Glympse feature screen before you send your message. Your use of the Glympse feature is subject to the Glympse terms of use found at http://www.glympse.com/terms and the Glympse privacy policy found at http://www.glympse.com/privacy.
