Do you know that you need written consent of customers to send them commercial text messages or a call? In a nutshell anything that rings and notifies the person it is sent to comes under TCPA Compliance. But Ringless Voicemail is an information service that doesn’t ring so and is thus exempted from TCPA.
The CTIA’s Best Practices Guide for SMS Marketing and Communications, released on January 19, 2017, emphasizes more on TCPA compliance and consensually obtained data or opt-in data.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act was set to effect in 1991. Basically, TCPA compliance limits automatic telecalls, telemarketers, robocalls and commercial SMSes.
Simply put, the TCPA clearly states that businesses and/or organizations must receive express written consent from individuals prior to sending any SMS/text messages to them.
TCPA compliance aims towards maintaining the integrity of the privacy of the people. According to TCPA compliance it is not enough for businesses and organizations to market to people through SMS or call, even if the people marketed to are prospects, potential leads, or existing customers.
They need to have the written consent of the customer now and not just obtaining the phone number, you can read in detail about getting the written consent here under “Written Authorization”.
Not keeping your policies aligned with TCPA regulations can cost you heavy fines and class action lawsuits. Damages start at $500 and go up to $1,500 per recipient for each text message sent. To get more in depth knowledge on compliance guidelines you can visit here.
