ChiOnline paid plan customers have the option of signing up to receive SMS
(text message) notifications for appointment requests with their US or Canadian wireless phone number.
Wireless numbers in other countries will continue to use email to SMS gateways. By providing
your phone number for new appointment SMS notifications, you expressly consent to receive appointment details from
your Website's online appointment request form.
The number of messages per month will vary based on the number of requests you receive from your Website's
appointment request form. Message and data rates may apply. You may discontinue the receipt of these text messages
at any time by texting or replying STOP to our SMS system number. We may send you an SMS message to
confirm that you have been unsubscribed. You can also stop SMS delivery by logging in to your Website Control Panel

will be updated here to reflect those changes.

wireless carriers. Carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages.

appointment details from being sent to your provided mobile number as an SMS message, but cannot guarantee a
spam-free experience, and is not liable for illegitimate contact information being passed from your Website's
appointment request form to you via SMS or email messages.
