Are there any laws or regulations that pertain to texting for businesses?

Yes. By using Business Texter, you are required to know and follow the laws. The TCPA laws in the United States govern texting rules. Some of the basics (but not all) are:

1 – You have consented to text someone (verbally is not enough, they must text you or give written consent)

2 – You include a STOP or OPT OUT message at the end of your message

3 – You must honor the opt-outs every time, all the time

4 – Don’t text between 8pm and 8am

It is DEFINITELY illegal to buy lists of phone numbers and text them and is in direct violation of the  terms of use for Business Texter.

If you have any questions about the legality of your texting strategy, we suggest you contact an attorney and seek a formal opinion.

Business Texter is not liable or responsible for your compliance with TCPA laws or any other applicable laws that may apply in your area.
