As part of Dataminr’s two-way notification solution, the Pulse platform allows customers to send SMS messages to make their staff aware of critical events.

In the United States and Canada, end users have the choice of being part of SMS communications, including emergency notifications. Before using Dataminr’s two-way notification solution, customers should obtain any necessary approvals to send SMS messages to US and Canada-based employees.

Methods for obtaining consent include:

  1. By requesting the employees to go to a specific webpage, HR system or travel profile and input their contact details;
  2. By including the information outlined in the section below in Customer’s employee handbook or other employee-facing documentation, providing a copy of it to the employees and obtaining consent via acknowledgement of such employee-facing documentation;
  3. By sending an email with the information outlined in the section below to the employees and obtaining consent via reply email from the employee;
  4. By communicating the information outlined in the section below verbally to Customer’s employees and obtaining consent via verbal response.
