Please read these terms and conditions carefully.  By checking the box to sign
up for one or more text messaging programs, you expressly consent to receive
non-marketing and marketing text messages from Use Media Inc.
(“Company”) and others texting on its behalf, including text messages made
with an autodialer, at the telephone number(s) that you provide.  You may

Program Description

Company and its service providers may use an automatic telephone dialing system
(“autodialer”) to deliver Company text messages to you.  Company text messages
are intended to provide you with information about upcoming deliveries and
Company’s goods and services (e.g., Company-sponsored events, coupons,
promotions, product launches, sweepstakes, and contests).

Message Frequency

The number of Company text messages that you receive will vary depending on
how many of Company’s text messaging programs for which you sign up to
receive messages.  You will receive a maximum of two messages per month per
Company text messaging program.  Company brands, programs and websites
generally have separate text messaging programs.

Cost

Message and data rates may apply to each text message sent or received in
connection with Company text messages, as provided in your mobile telephone
service rate plan (please contact your mobile telephone carrier for pricing plans), in
addition to any applicable roaming charges.  Company does not impose a separate
fee for sending Company text messages.

Supported Carriers

Supported carriers may change from time to time, but currently include AT&T, T-
Mobile, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, Nextel, Boost, Alltel, US Cellular, and Cellular
One, among others. 

How to Opt-In

To opt-in to receive text messages from a Company text messaging program(s),
please follow the instructions provided by the specific program from which you
wish to receive messages. This will usually be in the form of an affirmative opt-in
option on a web page or entry form. If you have opted-out and wish to opt-in, reply
START to the phone number the text messaging program for which you previously
opted-out.

How to Opt-Out

To stop receiving text messages from a specific Company text messaging
program, text STOP to the phone number provided for the text messaging
program from which you no longer wish to receive message (i.e., the phone
number from which its text messages are being sent).  You will then receive
confirmation of your opt-out of that text messaging program.  This will only opt
you out of the specific text messaging program associated with that phone
number.  You will remain opted in to other Company text messaging programs.

that you provide.  You are responsible for notifying Company immediately if you
change your mobile telephone number.  You may notify Company of a number
change by submitting a “contact us” form on the website associated with the
specific text messaging program you opted into.

You agree to indemnify Company in full for all claims, expenses, and damages
related to or caused in whole or in part by your failure to notify Company if you

and damages related to or arising under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
