12. Dispute Resolution

(Not applicable to Quebec consumers) If you are a Fantext user located in the United States or Canada, then section 13 below applies to you. Please also read that section carefully and completely. If you are not subject to section 13 below, then all disputes arising out of or related to these Terms or any aspect of the relationship between us (including any communications between us), whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory (“Disputes”), will be resolved exclusively in the United States District Court for the District of Montana, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating all such Disputes. Without prejudice to the foregoing, you agree that, in our sole discretion, we may elect to resolve any Dispute we have with you in any competent court in the country in which you reside that has jurisdiction over the Dispute.

(Not applicable to Quebec consumers) The laws of the United States (including federal arbitration law) and the State of Montana govern these Terms, as well as any Disputes, whether in court or arbitration, which might arise between us, without regard to conflict of law provisions, and regardless of your location.

For Quebec consumers: These Terms, as well as any Disputes which might arise between us will be governed by the laws of the Province of Quebec, without regard to conflict of law provisions, and the laws of Canada applicable therein, and any Disputes will be submitted to the courts of competent jurisdiction of the District of Montreal (Quebec).

13. Arbitration

(Not applicable to Quebec consumers) If you are a Fantext user located in the United States or Canada, then this section 13 applies to you. 

Except for disputes that qualify for small claims court, You and Us agree that all disputes arising out of or related to these Terms or any aspect of the relationship between You and Us (including any communications between us), whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, will be resolved through final and binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury. You acknowledge and agree that You and Us are waiving the right to trial by a jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class User in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Such disputes include, without limitation, disputes arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of this arbitration provision, including the enforceability, revocability, or validity of the arbitration provision or any portion of the arbitration provision. All such matters will be decided by an arbitrator and not by a court or judge.


You agree that any arbitration under these Terms will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted and you are agreeing to give up the ability to participate in a class action.  Further, unless You and Us otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceedings. This section shall survive any termination of this Agreement.)

The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Consumer Arbitration Rules, as amended by these Terms. The Consumer Arbitration Rules are available online at The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location that is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other relevant circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the AAA or the arbitrator will determine the location. 

The arbitrator’s decision will follow the terms of these Terms and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim, or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of these Terms, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. 

You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate by emailing us at with your first name, last name, phone number, and address within 30 days of accepting this agreement to arbitrate, with a statement that you decline this arbitration agreement.

Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in these Terms will prevent you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against us for you.

14. Export Controls

You are responsible for complying with United States export controls and for any violation of such controls, including any United States embargoes or other federal rules and regulations restricting exports. You represent, warrant, and covenant that you are not: (i) located in, or a resident or a national of, any country subject to a U.S. government embargo or other restriction, or that has been designated by the U.S. government as a “terrorist supporting” country; or (ii) on any of the U.S. government lists of restricted end users.

  • Unless a mutually executed agreement between us states otherwise, these Terms make up the entire agreement between us regarding Fantext and supersede any prior agreements regarding the subject matter of these Terms.

  • These Terms do not, and shall not be construed to, create any partnership, joint venture, employer-employee, agent, or franchisor-franchisee relationship between us.

  • All of our rights and obligations under these Terms are freely assignable by us to any of our affiliates or in connection with a merger, acquisition, restructuring, or sale of assets, or by operation of law or otherwise. You agree not to transfer any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone else without our prior written consent.

  • Except as expressly set forth herein, there are no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms.

  • If we fail to enforce any of these Terms, it will not be considered a waiver.

  • If any provision of these Terms is found unenforceable, then that provision will be severed from these Terms and not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

This may include information provided via mobile applications, features, software, and websites (“Service” or “Services”). The Privacy Policy applies only to information submitted and collected online through Fantext.  It does not extend to websites that may be maintained by other companies or organization to which we link, or to websites that contain links to the Fantext and/or the Service. By use of Fantext, You agree to the Privacy Policy’s terms as provided herein.

FANTEXT DOES NOT SELL YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. See below for the full details about how we collect information and what we do with it, but for a plain English summary, we collect information that is part of providing our messaging services, as well as any other means through which you might interact with us. This information is used in combination with providing our overall Services as described in detail below. How we collect, use, and otherwise process data is in compliance with all local and federal US law.


We provide messaging services to individuals or entities (“Fantext Users”) by issuing unique phone numbers (“Fantext Numbers”) through our messaging platform.


Fantext Users may use Fantext to message individuals who have signed up to receive their messages (“Fans”).


Please see our Terms of Service (“Terms”), which describe the terms that govern the use of Fantext.


This policy applies to information we collect when you visit, use, or communicate with or through our Services. Capitalized terms used in this Privacy Policy, but not defined herein, shall have the meaning set forth in our Terms of Service. This policy does not apply to information collected by: (1) us offline or through any other means, including on any other website or Service operated by Fantext or any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries); or (2) any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries), including through any application or content (such as advertising) that may link to or be accessible from or through the Service.

Children Under the Age of 13

The Service is not intended for any persons under the age of 13, and persons under the age of 13 are not permitted to use the Service. We do not knowingly collect personal information from persons under the age of 13. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on this Service or attempt to register or use any features of the Service. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children's internet usage and to help enforce our privacy policy by instructing their children never to provide personal information on the Service. If you have reason to believe that a child has provided personal information through the Service, please contact us by email at If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information.

Collection of General Information

We may collect information provided to us by your direct input either via our website or through messaging with a Fantext Number. This information includes any sites linked to Fantext, browser data, times and dates of interaction, as well as any data you provide via Fantext SMS interaction or through the platform as a Fantext User.


How We Collect Information from Fans (those who sign up to receive messages from a Fantext number)

To sign up with Fantext, we require certain information, such as your name, date of birth, gender identity, city, and phone number. You may have the option to provide other information as well, such as your email address. We refer to all of this as “contact info.” 


If you start a conversation with a Fantext User by sending a text message to their Fantext Number, we collect your phone number along with the contents of the text message, so we won’t need to ask you for it. If you later start a conversation with another Fantext User by sending a text message to their Fantext Number, we won’t need to ask you again for your contact info. If you start a conversation with a Fantext User from a supported website or Internet-based messaging service, the required contact info and signup process may vary.


How We Collect Information from Fantext Users (those who own a Fantext number)

Information we collect from you depends on how you utilize the Service and what information you choose to provide to us. We collect information from you when you register for an Account (including but not limited to your first and last name, date of birth, email address, and payment information); interact with the features available on the Service; email us or send a message through the Service; report a problem with our Service; and how you use the Service. We also collect information through automatic data collection technologies, which is described in more detail below.

Types of Information We Collect

Fantext, along with any third-party companies or individuals with whom we work, may collect information directly and voluntarily from you when you use the Service. The information we collect, use, and share may include "Personal Information" and "Non-personal Information."


Personal Information is generally information that can be used to identify you, either by itself or in conjunction with other information, which may be Non-Personal Information. It does not include data that has been anonymized to remove the identity (anonymous data), and it does not include data about a company.


Non-Personal Information includes information that is about you, and your equipment or usage details, but cannot be used to identify you personally.


The categories of Personal and Non-Personal Information we may collect, use, and store are as follows:

  • Contact Information includes first name, last name, email address, and telephone number.

  • Account Data includes your username and password for your Account; details about phone number, address, full name, all text message data sent and received; and details related to your interests, preferences, feedback, and survey responses. Your Account data may also include information or content that you specifically provide or upload to your Account for use in connection with the Service, which may include photographs, data, text, graphics, comments, notes, or other information. All information you provide in connection with your Account is optional and voluntary.

  • Technical Data includes internet protocol (IP) address, your login data, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology or devices you use to access this website.

  • Usage Data includes information about how you use the Service.

  • Marketing and Communications Data may include your preferences for receiving marketing information from us, newsletters, and any other communication preferences.


Fantext does not require you to provide any Special Categories of Personal Data in order to use the Service (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). However, we do allow you to create fan lists (“Lists”) and communicate with others (such as your Fans) based on any such grouping you create, and you or any such party with whom you communicate may choose to provide, communicate, upload or input data that includes Special Category Data. If you upload or input Special Category Data to your Account, or if you create or communicate a List, you are giving us your explicit consent to process your data, including Special Category Data, in order to facilitate your creation of or participation in the Interest Group or as otherwise requested by you in connection with your Account. Creation of or participation in Interest Group(s) is optional, and we will only process data that you specifically provide and only as necessary for the functionality of the Interest Group feature.


Aggregated Data is combined information, which may include information derived from your Personal Information, but is not considered Personal Information, because it is anonymized and does not directly or indirectly identify you. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data with the Usage Data of other users in de-identified form to calculate usage trends with respect to a feature of the Service. If we use Aggregated Data in combination with your Personal Information, it will be treated as Personal Information.


The preceding descriptions of Personal Information and Non-Personal Information we may collect are illustrative, not exhaustive.


Failure to Provide Personal Information

If you fail to provide personal information when it is required by law or necessary for us to perform our obligations (e.g., to facilitate your ability to use features of the Service as intended), we are excused from any obligations to You as we may not be able to perform them. For example, if you fail to provide us with your billing information to pay for a service or feature we may offer, we may not be able to provide you with the service you requested.


Automatic Data Collection and How We Use It

In an effort to improve the quality of the Service, Fantext and our service providers may track information provided to us by your device or browser, or by our analytics tools when you use the Service. As you access, use, and interact with the Service, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns, including:

  • Details of your visits to the Service, including traffic data, location data, logs the device from which you connected to the Service, website you came from (known as the "referring URL"), and other communication data and the resources that you access and use on the Service; and

  • Information about your device, computer, and internet connection, including your IP address, operating system, and browser type.


Log information is important for security, audit, quality improvement, as well as for monitoring the safety of our Service. When you download and use the Service, Fantext and our service providers, may track and collect Service usage data, such as the date and time the Service accesses our servers, and what information and files have been downloaded to the Service based on your device ID.


Types of Automatic Data Collection Technologies We Use

The technologies we use for the automatic data collection described above may include:


  • Cookies (or browser cookies). A cookie is a small file placed on your device. You may refuse to accept browser cookies by activating the appropriate setting on your browser.

Some mobile and web browsers transmit “do-not-track” signals. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not take action in response to these signals.


Third Party Use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

To facilitate the Service, we may allow you to link accounts you maintain on various External Platforms with your account on Fantext. While we will only obtain and use data obtained from such third parties in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy and as necessary to facilitate the Service, we cannot control or verify how any third parties may collect, use, or track information. Fantext shall not be responsible or liable for the policies or practices of any third-party service provider. We strongly encourage you to review the terms and privacy policies of any third-party application or service with which you integrate or otherwise use in connection with the Service.


We also partner with various technology providers to facilitate the Service, conduct sales and marketing activities, analyze usage trends, and continuously improve the Service for all users. These third-party services and applications may have access to data (which may include Personal Information) from your account or generated in connection with your use of the Service, and we may also receive information from such third party services. The types of providers we work with include services to facilitate our calling and messaging functions, email services, analytics services, and advertising services.

We collect and process information about you only where we have legal bases for doing so under applicable laws in your home country. The legal bases depend on the services you use and how you use them. This means we collect and use your information only where:

  • we need it to provide you with our services consistent with our Terms of Service, including to operate Fantext, provide customer support and personalized features, and to protect the safety and security of Fantext;

Additional Terms for Fantext Users

Last Updated: December 6, 2021

These are the additional terms for Fantext Users (“Additional Terms”) referred to in section 5 of our Terms of Service(“Terms”). By signing up to use Fantext as a Fantext User, you also agree to these Additional Terms. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between the Terms and these Additional Terms, these Additional Terms will control to the extent of such conflict or inconsistency, solely with respect to your capacity as a Fantext User. Capitalized terms not defined inline or in the Terms are defined in section 9 below.


1. Your Fantext Subscription

We determine eligibility to become a Fantext User at our sole discretion. Unless we have agreed otherwise, a standard subscription is month-to-month and will automatically renew until You or Fantext terminate the relationship as outlined in the Terms of Services agreement. 


2. Free Trials

Your Fantext subscription may start with a free trial. The duration of the free trial period will be specified during sign-up. Fantext will charge the applicable fees for your next billing cycle to your Payment Method at the end of the free trial period and your subscription will automatically renew unless You or Fantext terminates Your subscription prior to the end of the free trial period. We determine free trial eligibility at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to revoke the free trial and put your account on hold for any reason including ineligibility to receive Fantext Services.

3. Subscription Fees

You must provide us with a Payment Method for eligibility to receive Fantext Services. The applicable fees you incur for your use of Fantext will be charged to your Payment Method on the applicable billing date identified on Your selected subscription. The length of your billing cycle will depend on the type of subscription that You choose when signing up for Fantext. You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of the applicable fees for the next billing cycle to your Payment Method. All fees are to be paid in U.S. dollars. Charges are exclusive of taxes.

Unless we have agreed otherwise, all fees are due monthly in advance, and are calculated by reference to the number of Fans (also sometimes referred to as “Contacts”) that you have on the applicable billing date (and for clarity, that counts all individuals who (i) have signed up to message with you via Fantext after sending a message to your Fantext Number, and (ii) have not opted out).  


4. Billing & Cancellation

You authorize us to charge all fees owed by You to Fantext using any Payment Method associated with your account. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not cancel your account, we may suspend your access to Fantext until we have successfully charged a valid Payment Method. 

We may update your Payment Method using information provided by the payment service providers. Following any update, you authorize us to continue to charge the applicable Payment Method. 

You may cancel your Fantext subscription at any time, and you will continue to have access to Fantext through the end of your billing period as long as it remains within the same billing threshold (i.e. number of Fans). If you have canceled your Fantext subscription and have reached a new billing tier before the end of your billing period, you will be charged and notified of the difference between the tier that you have paid and the new billing tier. To cancel, email us at If you cancel your subscription, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. 

We reserve the right to change our subscription plans or adjust pricing for Fantext in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion. Any price changes or changes to your subscription plan will take effect following notice to you. If you do not accept any such additional fees, we may discontinue your access to Fantext.

Payments are nonrefundable and there are no Credits for partially used periods. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to Fantext through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide Credits to some or all of our Fantext Users. The amount and form of such Credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of Credits in one instance does not entitle you to Credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide Credits in the future, under any circumstance.

If you believe you have been billed in error, please email us at within 30 days of your billing error.


5. Service Rights & Restrictions
