Terms and Conditions/Privacy Policy

Important: This is a legal agreement between LSN, Inc., Cleveland and the user ("you"). Please read the following terms carefully. By clicking the "submit now" button, you agree to these terms and conditions whether or not you have read them. If you do not agree to this, you may not access or otherwise use the service. LSN, Inc. or Cleveland may modify the terms and conditions from time to time. Please continue to review this page whenever you access or use the Cleveland service.

1. Text Alerts: The Text Alerts consists of the forwarding of information that has been provided by LSN, Inc. or our partners to you that you have requested from Cleveland. The information will be provided as a text message via your mobile phone carrier to your mobile device.

Text alerts are sent as standard rate, meaning that we do not charge you for the messages but you may be charged by your carrier depending on your messaging plan. You are subscribed to alerts until such time as you return to this site to deactivate them, or reply STOP (nothing else should be in the message) to a message to deactivate that particular alert. If you wish to deactivate all alerts, you can reply to any message with STOP ALL (nothing else should be in the message) and all alerts will be deactivated.

Messages are sent at different frequencies depending on type:

  • news alert - as breaking news occurs
  • sports alerts - at the end of each game when scores are finalized
  • weather forecast alerts - daily in the morning
  • lottery alerts - whenever numbers for that lottery are drawn and finalized
  • closing alerts - whenever the locations you choose (school, business, etc.) provide the station with information about closings or cancellations

The type of information which you ask Cleveland to send you is determined by the selections you make on the website maintained by LSN, Inc. or Cleveland. The Alerts Service is maintained 24 hours a day, but LSN, Inc. or Cleveland does not warrant that the Alerts Service will be uninterrupted or error free.

There is no additional fee charged by LSN, Inc. or Cleveland for receiving the Text Alert messages. However, message and data rates may apply from your mobile phone carrier.
