The following uses are not permitted on Law Ruler and are considered a non-curable breach of the Agreement subject to immediate termination by LRS.
Using Law Ruler numbers to provide emergency services, such as 911-types of communication
Inbound and outbound communications between emergency service providers and end users are explicitly not permitted on Law Ruler numbers. SMS notifications may be used to provide information during an emergency, but should not be used as a replacement for or a means to contacting actual emergency services.

You shall only send SMS messages to recipients who have opted in to your service and are expecting communication from you. Law Ruler actively monitors for this kind of activity and we have the exclusive right to block the phone number or suspend your account if we receive complaints from your subscribers.
Sending mass marketing or bulk messaging using Law Ruler long code phone numbers
Mobile carriers do not allow marketing SMS messages, whether solicited or not, to be sent on regular 10-digit numbers. Marketing messages may only be sent using SMS codes (special 5 or 6-digit numbers). If you’re interested in a dedicated US SMS code, then please contact our sales or support team. Mass marketing restrictions vary from country to country. Law Ruler does not support mass marketing on US or international phone numbers.
Sending harassing or abusive messages
Sending threats, unwanted messages and “SMS-bombing” – sending many messages to a single number without the recipient’s permission – are not allowed on Law Ruler. You are responsible for ensuring that the users of your application do not send harassing or abusive messages.
Engaging in fraud, phishing or sending of sensitive data
Law Ruler takes fraud and abuse very seriously. Report it here. Sending messages with fraudulent information or phishing to request confidential information from subscribers is not allowed.
