The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has fined a Swansea double-glazing company £150,000 for making nuisance calls. The company had called people over an 11 month period whose numbers were registered with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) and who had not given their consent to receive them. The ICO has also issued an Enforcement Notice warning them to stop making the calls.

Failure to check number against the TPS will almost definitely lead to complaints, TPS issues, and ICO enforcement action. Checking against the TPS is simple to do and access to the TPS file is not massively expensive. Don’t risk it! Several companies have been fined for exactly this.

Don't forget that GDPR still applies and you have to make sure that you have all your GDPR policies and processes in place. You need to be able to respond to complaints quickly and efficiently and need to ensure that you have contracts in place with anyone you buy data from.
