General FAQs

What is Code Purple?

Code Purple is an emergency notification system that allows Tarleton State University to quickly communicate health and safety-related emergency information via text message or email.

What is e2Campus?

Code Purple is powered by the e2Campus mass notification system. The e2Campus solution allows designated university administrators to send time-sensitive messages to the mobile phones, email, and/or pagers of Code Purple subscribers—regardless of geographic location.

Will I receive unsolicited messages ("SPAM") on my mobile phone or email account?

No. Code Purple and e2Campus enforces a "Zero Spam" policy that clearly prohibits unsolicited messages. Furthermore e2Campus cannot or will not sell the contact information of Code Purple subscribers to third party marketers. However, if you are blocking spam, your cell phone provider may have short code text messages sent from our official emergency notification provider, e2Campus, on the blocked list. Please make sure your cell phone provider allows our short code numbers 795-16 and 703-59.

Will this cost me anything?

Maybe. Depending on your wireless carrier provider and the plan you have, you may be charged a nominal fee (i.e. ten cents per message) to receive SMS text messages. For those with unlimited text messaging plans, there would be no additional charge.

What is a selective mass notification system?

A selective mass notification system is defined as a platform to deliver a notification to an entire audience by all means necessary; therefore creating comprehensive coverage to increase the odds that a particular subscriber received the notification in a timely manner. Subscribers can be notified immediately by text message or email based on their notification preferences.

What is a notification?

A notification is defined as a form of communication that delivers descriptive information about news or an event, unlike a bell or siren that communicates little information. For Code Purple, a notification will arrive in the form of a text message or email, based on your message delivery selections.
