Telemarketing Laws/State Rules
State Regulations (Laws) may impose restrictions on the
ability to solicit by telephone or facsimile. These regulations
vary from state to state. Violation of such regulations
may result in severe penalties and other sanctions.
Any person intending to use our dialing products
(software, voiceboard, etc) for solicitation purposes
should consult an Attorney to determine the extent, if
any, of permissible activities
Because of different laws from state to state, and country
to country and because we are not lawyers we are unable
to render a legal opinion. We suggest you check with your
local Public Utility Commission, Attorney General or you
can check our legal links. Federal regulations which govern
"Cold Call Solicitation" come under the guidelines
of the TCPA of 1991. A copy may be obtained through the
FCC office in Washington DC.
The basic jest of the 1991 TCPA regulations, with regards
to automated tele computers, is that you obtain expressed
prior consent of the called party, before playing them
a "Recorded Solicitation" message. The TCMS
dialer has the capabilities of doing such again and again,
this deals with "Cold Calling" for solicitation
purposes. Business to Business contact or Non-Profit use
of the equipment as well as Consent calling, or survey
work, has very limited restrictions other than normal
PUC guidelines regulated by your local phone company.
TCMS is in no way trying to interpret the TCPA of 1991
by the above comments, nor the laws in your state. Ultimately,
it is up to you to check out the legal requirements, and
make your own informed decisions.
Notice: Below we have provided links to the Public Utility
Commissions of each state. It is your responsibility to
research the laws for your state.
