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 text messages from Convention of States Action (“we,” “us,” “our”) and others texting on our behalf, including text messages made with an autodialer, at the telephone number(s) that you provide. The messaging frequency varies and you may opt-out of these communications at any time. Consent to receive text messages is not required to sign our petition or use our website.
We and our service providers may use an automatic telephone dialing system (“autodialer”) to deliver text messages to you. Our text messages are intended to provide you with information about volunteering opportunities, calls to action, upcoming events, and other matters connected with self-governance.
Message and data rates may apply to each text message sent or received in connection with our 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. We do not impose a separate fee for sending our text messages.
Carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. Supported carriers may change from time to time, but currently include AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, Nextel, Boost, Alltel, US Cellular, Metro PCS, and Cellular One, among others.
How to Opt-In
To opt-in to receive text messages from our text messaging program(s), please follow the instructions provided by the specific page where you are signing a petition, registering for an event, donating to an organization, or any other of our tools where you are asked to opt in to receiving SMS messages.
How to Opt-Out
To stop receiving text messages from a specific text messaging program, text STOP to the five digit short code for the text messaging program from which you no longer wish to receive messages (i.e., the five digit 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 five digit short code. You will remain opted in to our other text messaging programs.

You represent that you are the account holder for the mobile telephone number(s) that you provide. You are responsible for notifying us immediately if you change your mobile telephone number. You may notify us of a number change to sms-support @ cosaction.com.
You agree to indemnify us in full for all claims, expenses, and damages related to or caused in whole or in part by your failure to notify us if you change your telephone number, including, but not limited to, all claims, expenses, and damages related to or arising under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
Access or Delivery to Mobile Network is Not Guaranteed
Delivery of information and content to a mobile device may fail due to a variety of circumstances or conditions. You understand and acknowledge that network services, including but not limited to mobile network services, are outside of our control, and we are not responsible or liable for issues arising from them.
To request more information, text HELP to the five digit short code for the text messaging program about which you have questions (i.e., the five digit number from which its text messages are being sent). You may also receive help by sending an email to sms-support @ cosaction.com.
