ABOUT ALERTS

 

Alerts are promotional messages that we send to you. Each individual Alert may include a coupon, information about discounts, sales and/or events happening in our retail store locations. We will only deliver Alerts to you using the method(s) that you select.

  • When you subscribe to receive text Alerts, we send up to 10 text Alerts per month to the mobile phone number that you provide to us during sign-up. Text Alerts are sent using automated technology. Consent is not a condition of purchase. Message and data rates may apply. Text HELP for help. Text STOP to unsubscribe. Please note that texting STOP will always result in us sending an opt-out confirmation text to your phone.

  • To be eligible to participate, you must: be at least 18 years old; live in the United States; and be authorized to incur message and data rates to the mobile number enrolled to receive Alerts.

  • We do not charge you for sending or receiving text messages to 38228, but message and data rates may apply from your mobile provider. If your mobile provider does not support MMS or RMM, you will receive SMS. Check your mobile plan for details.

  • You may only enroll one phone number at a time in Alerts. If you change phone numbers, please notify us of your new number.

  • Alerts are not available with all mobile providers. Carriers may be added or removed at any time. List of supported carriers as of April 2015: ACS Wireless, AT&T, Bluegrass Cellular, Boost, Cellcom, Cellular South, Centennial Wireless, Cricket, ECIT, EKN/Appalachian Wireless, GCI Communications, Illinois Valley Cellular, Immix Wireless, Inland Cellular, MetroPCS, Nex-Tech Wireless, nTelos, RCC/Unicel, Revel, Sprint, Thumb Cellular, T-Mobile, United Wireless, U.S. Cellular, Verizon Wireless, Virgin Mobile, West Central Wireless.

  • We do not promise error-free service, and delivery of Alerts is subject to the effective transmission from your network operator. We will not be liable for any delays in the receipt of any Alerts, or for any undelivered Alerts. We may discontinue the Alerts program at any time. We reserve the right to remove subscribers from our messaging database at our discretion.

 

GORDMANS ALERTS

You may also sign up to receive Alerts from our Gordmans stores. Gordmans Alerts are managed separately from Stage Alerts; subscribing to one program will not automatically enroll you in the other, and you must also opt-out of both separately. For information on how to subscribe to or opt-out from Alerts from Gordmans, please visit our Gordmans Alerts Page.

 

HOW TO OPT-OUT OF ALERTS

If you do not want to receive alerts anymore, tell us. If you have registered an account with us, you can text STOP to unsubscribe. We will send you a text confirming that you have been unsubscribed. You can also email us at alerts@stage.com

 

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

With the assistance of our third party service providers, we collect information about you to operate the Alerts program, to contact you and to provide the services you request from us. The information collected may be your mobile phone number, carrier's name, the date, time and content of your messages to us and any other information you provide to us. Please review our complete Privacy Policy for additional information.

 

ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS

When you subscribe to Alerts, text us, or send e-mails to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by e-mail or by posting notices on this site or through the other services. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

 

VIOLATIONS OF THESE TERMS

We reserve the right to terminate your Alerts account and/or void coupons issued to you if you violate these Terms. Enrolling multiple phone numbers or using technology to mask or spoof a phone number are material breaches of these Terms.

 

ARBITRATION

YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES, ACTIONS, AND CLAIMS RELATING IN ANY WAY TO OR ARISING OUT OF THESE TERMS AND/OR YOUR SUBSCRIPTION TO ALERTS (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION STAGE’S ADVERTISEMENTS AND DISCLOSURES, TEXT MESSAGES AND EMAILS THAT STAGE SENDS TO YOU, OR RELATING TO THE COLLECTION OR USE OF ANY INFORMATION ABOUT YOU IN CONNECTION WITH ALERTS OR THIS WEBSITE) (COLLECTIVELY “CLAIMS”) WILL BE GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT, FEDERAL ARBITRATION LAW, AND LAWS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS, WITHOUT REGARD TO CHOICE OF LAW PRINCIPLES. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT ALL CLAIMS WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION, EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY ASSERT CLAIMS IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT IF YOUR CLAIMS QUALIFY. THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE USER’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL OR CLASS PROCEEDING. YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE ALL CLAIMS IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT ACT AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR IN ANY OTHER REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY, OR PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS AGAINST STAGE IN ANY COURT, OR IN ARBITRATION, WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIMS. YOUR CLAIMS SHALL NOT BE JOINED TO ANY OTHER ARBITRATION OR DISPUTE INVOLVING ANY OTHER PARTY SUBJECT TO THESE TERMS, AND NO CLASS ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS SHALL BE PERMITTED.

The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's supplementary procedures for consumer-related disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. You agree to commence arbitration only in your county of residence or in Harris County, Texas. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submission, or in person by following the AAA rules. In a dispute involving $10,000 or less, any hearing will be telephonic unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. The arbitrator may award the same damages to you individually as a court could.

Stage will pay all administrative, hearing, and arbitrator’s fees and costs for the arbitration that are in excess of any filing fee that you would have been required to pay to file your Claims as a lawsuit in a state or federal court (whichever is greater). Unless the arbitrator awards otherwise, you will be responsible for paying the fees for your lawyers, witnesses (including experts), and all other expenses you incur. An arbitration award and any judgment confirming it apply only to that specific case. The arbitration award may be entered as a judgment only to enforce the award itself and cannot be used as evidence in any other case. To reduce the time and expense of the arbitration, the arbitrator will not provide a statement of reasons for his or her award unless requested to do so by all parties.

Either party shall have the right to seek an injunction or other equitable relief related to infringement, violation, or a threat to infringe or violate the other party's patent, copyright, trademark or trade secret rights. The parties may seek such injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in Harris County, Texas. You consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in Harris County, Texas.

 

SURVIVAL; SEVERABILITY

The arbitration provision of these Terms will survive the termination of the relationship between you and Stage Stores. To the maximum extent possible, if any provision of these Terms shall be interpreted is deemed by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be unlawful or unenforceable, it will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. Additionally, any unenforceable provision shall be deemed modified so as to be rendered valid and enforceable while implementing, to the greatest extent possible, the original intent of such provision.
