YOUR RIGHTS UNDER TCPA
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991, which is defined under 47 U.S.C. Section 2227 and found at FCC (“TCPA”), restricts telephone solicitations (i.e. telemarketing) and the use of pre-recorded voice messages, auto-dialed calls, text messages and unsolicited faxes. “Telemarketing” means the initiation of a telephone call or message for the purpose of encouraging the purchase or rental of, or investment in, property, goods, or services, which is transmitted to any person. TCPA is also the authority that created the National Do-Not-Call List. Businesses must follow strict solicitation rules and must honor the National Do Not Call Registry (www.donotcall.gov). Federal Communications Commission (FCC) exempted research calls, survey calls, and bank account fraud alerts from the written consent requirement reserved for telemarketing calls, to the extent they do not contain telemarketing messages.
What are the TCPA’s restrictions on telemarketing and advertisements under FCC rules?
No person or entity may initiate any telephone solicitation to:
- any residential telephone subscriber before the hour of 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m. (called party's local time); or
- a residential telephone number on the national do-not-call registry.
Beginning October 16, 2013, prior express written consent was required for all autodialed calls, pre-recorded calls or texts sent or made to a wireless number and pre-recorded calls made to wired numbers for advertising or telemarketing purposes. The prior business relationship exemption was eliminated. Exceptions include calls:
- that are manually dialed and do not contain a pre-recorded message;
- made for emergency purposes;
- not made for a commercial purpose;
- made for a commercial purpose but does not include or introduce an advertisement or constitute telemarketing;
- made by or on behalf of a tax-exempt nonprofit organization; or
- that delivers a “health care” message made by, or on behalf of, a “covered entity” or its “business associate,” as those terms are defined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
Additional requirements for all artificial or prerecorded voice telephone messages include:
- At the beginning of the message, it must state clearly the identity of the business, individual, or other entity that is responsible for initiating the call.
- During or after the message, state clearly the telephone number (other than that of the auto-dialer or prerecorded message player that placed the call) of such business, other entity, or individual. The telephone number provided may not be a number for which charges exceed local or long distance charges.
- Provide an automated, interactive voice- and/or key press-activated opt-out mechanism for the called person to make a do-not-call request
Company hereby represents and warrants that its telemarketing practices are in compliance with the TCPA. You certify, warrant, and represent that the telephone numbers that you have provided to us are your contact numbers. You represent that you are permitted to receive calls at each of the telephone numbers you have provided to us. You agree to promptly alert us whenever you stop using a particular telephone number. Your cellular or mobile telephone provider will charge you according to the type of plan you carry. You also agree that we may contact you by email, using any email address you have provided to us or that you provide to us in the future. We may listen to and/or record phone calls between you and our representatives without notice to you as permitted by applicable law. For example, we listen to and record calls for quality monitoring purposes.
YOUR RIGHTS UNDER CCPA
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) is a state-wide data privacy law that regulates how businesses all over the world are allowed to handle the personal information (PI) of California residents CCPA provides California residents with five core rights to data privacy and an effective way to control their personal information. If you are a California resident, you have the following rights with regard to your personal information:
- the right to know what personal information is being collected about them.
- the right to know whether their personal information is sold or disclosed and to whom.
- the right to say no to the sale of personal information (“the right to opt out”). Sale is defined broadly in the CCPA to include “selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a consumer’s personal information by the business to another business or a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration”. Under CCPA, a business that collects information from California residents shall not sell the personal information of consumers if the business has actual knowledge that the consumer is less than 16 years of age , unless the consumer, in the case of consumers between 13 and 16 years of age, or the consumer’s parent or guardian, in the case of consumers who are less than 13 years of age, has affirmatively authorized the sale of the consumer’s personal information. We do not collect information from anyone under 18. Moreover, under CCPA, a business shall provide a clear and conspicuous link on the business’ Internet homepage, titled “Do Not Sell My Personal Information,” to an Internet Web page that enables a consumer, or a person authorized by the consumer, to opt out of the sale of the consumer’s personal information. We do not sell your personal information to anyone, but we do provide you with such a web page anyway. It can be found here ___________.
- the right to access their personal information. Under CCPA, a business may provide personal information to a consumer at any time, but shall not be required to provide personal information to a consumer more than twice in a 12-month period.
- the right to equal service and price, even if they exercise their privacy rights.
Additionally, a California consumer has the right to request that a business delete any personal information about the consumer which the business has collected from the consumer. However, a business or a service provider shall not be required to comply with a consumer’s request to delete the consumer’s personal information if it is necessary for the business or service provider to maintain the consumer’s personal information in order to:
- Complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected, provide a good or service requested by the consumer, or reasonably anticipated within the context of a business’s ongoing business relationship with the consumer, or otherwise perform a contract between the business and the consumer.
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; or prosecute those responsible for that activity.
- Debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise his or her right of free speech, or exercise another right provided for by law.
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act pursuant to Chapter 3.6 (commencing with Section 1546) of Title 12 of Part 2 of the Penal Code.
- Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the businesses’ deletion of the information is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of such research, if the consumer has provided informed consent.
- To enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with the expectations of the consumer based on the consumer’s relationship with the business.
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Otherwise use the consumer’s personal information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which the consumer provided the information.
Conflict resolution under CCPA: Prior to initiating any action against a business for statutory damages on an individual or class-wide basis, a California consumer shall provide a business 30 days’ written notice identifying the specific provisions of this title the consumer alleges have been or are being violated. In the event a cure is possible, if within the 30 days the business actually cures the noticed violation and provides the consumer an express written statement that the violations have been cured and that no further violations shall occur, no action for individual statutory damages or class-wide statutory damages may be initiated against the business. Contact us should you need to exercise any of your rights under CCPA.
