Update Your Terms of Service

After you have reviewed the relevant SMS laws and regulations, you should ensure your relationship with your subscribers is subject to a binding Terms of Service agreement and Privacy Policy.

We have drafted a model agreement regarding SMS that you can add to your existing Terms of Service.

Note: We make no representation and warranty regarding their accuracy and no attorney-client relationship is created by providing these agreements. You are encouraged to consult your own legal counsel familiar with the TCPA before finalizing and posting your consumer agreements.

Update Your Terms of Service

When updating your Terms of Service, you have two avenues to choose from.

You may decide to employ Postscript's dynamically hosted messaging privacy policy and messaging terms. With this feature, you are able to backlink to Postscript-hosted dynamic terms and privacy policy. This means you only need to set it up once, knowing that your Messaging Terms and Messaging Privacy Policy will be automatically updated by Postscript as Carrier and TCPA compliance requirements are announced.

Alternatively, you can add the Terms of Service provided in the Manually Update Terms of Service tab below. If you choose this option, you will need to manually update your terms of service when compliance updates are announced.

For both options, you'll first need to log into your Shopify account.

Dynamic Hosted Terms of Service Manually Update Terms of Service
  • If you installed Postscript before April 5th, 2022 and would like to employ this feature, please reach out to our support team or your Customer Success Manager. We're happy to help!
  • If you installed Postscript on or after April 5th, 2022: In the “Compliance” section of your onboarding flow when you installed Postscript, you were prompted to copy and paste the dynamic links into your Shopify Shop Terms of Service and Shopify Shop Privacy Policy sections. These dynamic links host Postscript’s Dynamic Hosted Messaging Terms and Messaging Privacy Policy language.
