The most recent version of the Terms of Use is publicly available online at http://www.smashcode.com/terms/. Please check these Terms of Use periodically for changes.

Purpose and Description of Services

SMaSh enables advertisers to register keywords that can be placed in their other advertising along with a SMaSh owned short code. Consumers with SMS-enabled communications devices can send text messages containing the printed keywords to the SMaSh short code in order to receive, via SMS, additional information concerning the advertiser’s products or services.
Each keyword is registered for a specific term, and SMaSh will forward the advertiser’s pre-configured information to consumers only during the period of registration. Advertisers acquire no vested ownership in SMaSh keywords as such. After a keyword’s registration has expired SMaSh may make the keyword available to another advertiser. In such cases the advertiser may register another keyword with the SMaSh system. Each advertiser is responsible for removing expired keywords from advertising materials.
SMaSh may determine, at its sole discretion, to limit advertisers’ use of the Services, impose data storage limitations, charge additional fees for the Services or otherwise modify the Services in the future. You acknowledge and agree that these changes may take place and that SMaSh shall have no liability stemming from such changes.

Fees and Payments

Advertisers and consumers are responsible for any fees, charges and expenses incurred in using and accessing the Services. Consumers are not currently charged for using the SMaSh Services. However, they may be subject to fees from their cellular carrier based on their service plan. Consumers are advised to review their cellular plans to find out the cost of sending and receiving SMS messages. Advertisers are charged fees for registering keywords with SMaSh based on the duration of registration. SMaSh reserves the right to increase fees or impose additional fees for use of or access to the SMaSh Services at SMaSh’s sole discretion.
SMaSh uses reasonable efforts to ensure that the Services are available on a 24/7 basis. However, there will be occasions when the Services will be interrupted for maintenance, upgrades and emergency repairs or due to failure of telecommunications links and equipment that are beyond the control of SMaSh. By using the Services you agree that SMaSh shall not be liable to you for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Services.

Restrictions on Use of the Service

You may not use the Services to upload or transmit any items that are unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another’s privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable. Further, you may not use the Services to facilitate any infringement or misappropriation of any intellectual property rights of a third person or for any illegal activities.
All messages, information, digital files or other materials, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, are the sole responsibility of the advertiser who sends or publishes such items in connection with the Services. Accordingly, advertisers are responsible for all items that they upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available via the Service. SMaSh reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor the materials uploaded and transmitted by advertisers. SMaSh shall have the right to remove any such material that in its sole opinion violates, or is alleged to violate, any applicable law or these Terms of Use. In such a case SMaSh, at its sole discretion may choose to work with the advertiser in order to update or change the offending material. Notwithstanding this right of SMaSh, the advertiser remains solely responsible for the content of the materials posted on and transmitted using the Services.
