If you voluntarily disclose PII, photographs or other personal information on one of our message boards or any other community forum we now offer or may offer in the future, such information may be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages or communications from other parties.

5. Mobile Devices.
Please be aware that certain information collection and tracking practices are not within our control (e.g., tracking by third party platform providers or telecommunications carriers). We cannot and are not responsible for the actions of such third parties. You should read and understand all policies of any third party platform provider, telecommunication carrier or other applicable third party prior to downloading any mobile application.
6. Text Messaging.
From time to time, we may run certain offers or campaigns that provide you with the ability to send a text message to a specific short code and provide you with an opportunity to opt-in to receive future text messages. Your opt-in request provides us with your mobile phone number. If you choose to opt-in, you agree that we may, from time to time, send messages to the mobile device associated with that number about new products, promotions, services or offers. Although there is no fee associated with this service, your telecommunications carrier may charge you for each message you receive in accordance with your calling plan. You agree that we are not responsible in any way for such charges. If you do not wish to continue to receive any messages via your mobile device, you may opt-out at any time via the procedures provided in our text messages. Failure to opt-out after you have previously provided an opt-in constitutes your consent to continue to receive these messages until you elect to opt-out and your release of us from any telecommunications carrier charges associated with such messages.
