Shepherd University does not warrant the successful delivery of each message to each individual recipient. The service depends on the individual e-mail systems, cellular and mobile phone carriers to deliver SMS and e-mail messages to each recipient. Electrical power outages or other failures in communications systems make cause the system to be inoperable.

The text-message alerts are not intended as a comprehensive delivery system for information to our students. E-mail accounts and the University web-site should be consulted as soon as is practical, following a text-message alert, for additional and updated information.

Text-message alerts are intended to provide a general and succinct warning to the student body about an emergency condition on campus. As is always the case with such warnings, each individual recipient should take heed of such warning and should also apply reasonable common sense to the specific circumstances which might confront the recipient in responding to any emergency condition on the campus.

In registering for participation in this text-messaging service, each registrant should realize that there may be a charge by your cell phone provider to receive SMS messages. Consult with your individual carriers about the details of your service plan.
