If you’re in the telemarketing industry or have a telemarketing profession, you should be VERY aware of the Do Not Call Registry. The National Do Not Call Registry gives consumers a choice about whether to receive telemarketing calls at home or on their mobile phone.
Telemarketers should NOT call an individual’s number once it has been on the registry for 31 days. If you do, the individual can file a complaint against your company with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
The FTC’s mission is to prevent business practices that are anticompetitive or deceptive or unfair to consumers; to enhance informed consumer choice and public understanding of the competitive process; and to accomplish this without unduly burdening legitimate business activity.
The FTC takes aggressive legal action to make sure companies abide by the Do Not Call Registry and many of these legal actions result in companies at fault paying civil penalties.
If you’re about to plan and execute your company’s next telemarketing campaign, wouldn’t you prefer peace of mind?
Because privacy is crucial and legislative changes often occur, operating within compliance can be very time consuming. Natimark maintains and updates the National FTC Do-Not-Call file, the various states’ Do-Not-Call lists, the DMA Telephone Preference Service (TPS) file and the DMA Pander file. Records are suppressed automatically to ensure that your marketing efforts conform to all Federal and State legislation.
Whether you’re looking to purchase a new list or clean up the one you already have, we encourage you to contact Natimark
