Avoiding nuisance calls and messages
Nuisance marketing calls are unwanted phone calls that attempt to promote a product, service, aim or ideal to you. For example, a caller could try to sell you something or ask you to support a particular cause.
There are two types of marketing calls: 1) Live marketing calls: unwanted marketing calls from a real person. 2) Automated marketing calls: pre-recorded marketing messages that are played when you answer the phone.
Transac provides the service via its application where we will take the following actions:
- Register your name free of charge with the TPS (Telephone Preference Service): this is a central register of individuals who have opted out of receiving live marketing calls.
- Transac to report the organisation to the ICO
