SMS Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

The Grindless Point of Sale (“POS”) software offers the ability to opt-in to SMS text messages sent to customer’s phone numbers on file, which will notify the recipient of promotions and events happening in their local store. Grindless does not own or operate the locations which use the Grindless POS software.

This SERVICE is provided by Grindless at no cost and is intended for use as is. Additional fees may be incurred by the recipient from their cellphone carrier for receiving text messages from the Service. Grindless itself does not charge the end user in any way for the sending/receiving of these SMS text messages.

This page is used to inform website visitors regarding our policies with the collection, use, and
disclosure of Personal Information if anyone decided to use our Service.

If you choose to use our Service, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation
to this policy. The Personal Information that we collect is used for providing and improving the
Service. We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described
in this Privacy Policy.

How To Unsubscribe

Recipients may opt-out and cancel their text message subscription at any time. There are multiple ways to do this:

  1. Reply to any text message you have receive from the Service with the word “REMOVE” (case insensitive). Our POS will then remove your phone number from our subscription list automatically. This option is the fastest and more preferred method of unsubscribing.
  2. Contact your local store where you signed up for text messaging. You may dial the phone number which sent you our text message or call the store.
  3. Contact Grindless via email or telephone. You can find our Corporate contact info at the bottom of any page on our website. This option may take additional time as your number must be manually found and unsubscribed from our system.

Information Collection and Use

For a better experience, while using our Service, we may require you to provide us with certain

The information that we request is will be retained by us and used as described in this privacy policy.
