How the person recharges, it automatically agrees to single reception of the advertising message.   we will send you the report, the place and time of the sent message there will be specified. However, phone of the payer will be specified not completely because under the legislation transfer of base to the third parties is forbidden. And in the second time we too cannot send to it sms with your advertising unless this person again will come to recharge in the terminal.
