(a) The Genesys Cloud CX Service offers a mechanism for Persons to opt-out of receiving Text Messages from Customer. Customer represents and warrants that it shall include opt-out capabilities in each Message if required by Law, and Customer accepts sole responsibility for making that determination. If a Subscriber sends an explicit and unambiguous opt-out request directly to the Genesys Cloud CX Communication Platform by a Subscriber originated Text Message via mobile handset origination, then Genesys will confirm the opt-out with one subsequent message, or otherwise as in accordance with Law. Unless requested by Customer and required by Law, Genesys will not send an opt-out confirmation in respect of any other Subscriber opt-out request (e. g. an ambiguous Text Message, or an opt-out request initiated online, via the web, by voice call, or letter addressed to a street address); Customer accepts sole responsibility for determining whether such confirmation is required by Law and for instructing Genesys to send out such messages if so required.
(b) Genesys uses all commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy of its List Profile Report service; but all such data is provided by the Providers. To that end, Genesys makes no representation or warranty of any kind regarding the accuracy of such data returned from the List Profile Report service. Notwithstanding Genesys’s efforts, Customer acknowledges and agrees that it is solely responsible for ensuring the propriety of using the Recipient Numbers provided to Genesys.
(c) Short Codes are required for Customer Messages. Genesys may require at least 45 days to provision a Short Code for Customer. Delays may occur if Customer does not respond quickly to requests such as for information and for payment. The applicable timeframe is also dependent upon the responsiveness of the Providers, and Genesys will not be held liable for such provisioning delays from specific Providers or Customer, or reasons outside of Genesys’s control.
(d) Random Short Codes are owned exclusively by Genesys and may be shared among multiple Genesys customers. At Customer’s own expense, and for its own use, Customer may lease a Random Short Code, or purchase a Vanity Short Code. At all times a Short Code is active, Customer will be billed for all inbound Text Messages received, as well any responses to these inbound Text Messages.
