We may elect to offer certain text messaging services (the “SMS Service”).

The information will not be provided, sold, licensed, rented, assigned or disclosed, except as required by law. We will not use your phone number to initiate a call or SMS text message to you without your express prior consent. Your wireless carrier and other service providers also collect data about your SMS Service usage: their practices are governed by their own privacy policies.
Petaluma360 collects the mobile phone number you use to send us a text message and the content of the messages sent between you and Petaluma360. When you send a text message to Petaluma360 or via Petaluma360, we log the incoming phone number, the wireless provider associated with the number, and the date and time of the transaction. The only information we automatically collect is that related to the use of our Mobile Services. Petaluma360 uses this data to analyze the message traffic in order to operate, develop and improve our SMS Service.
