Program Description

TRINITY and its third-party service providers may use an automatic telephone dialing system (“autodialer”) to deliver telemarketing text messages to you.

Cost

Message and data rates may apply to each text message sent or received in connection with the text messages sent to you by TRINITY, as provided in your mobile telephone service rate plan (please contact your mobile telephone carrier for pricing plans), in addition to any applicable roaming charges.  TRINITY does not impose a separate fee for sending text messages.

Supported Carriers
