What can I do about unwanted marketing calls?

The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations lay down rules for organisations regarding making unsolicited marketing calls to individuals and businesses. The regulations require that organisations do not make 'live' marketing calls (where there is actually a person talking to them, as opposed to a recorded message) to:
  • a subscriber who has indicated a general objection to receiving such calls by registering with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS), a subscriber who has indicated a general objection to receiving such calls by registering with the Corporate Telephone Preference Service (CTPS); or
  • a subscriber who has notified the caller that he does not wish to receive such unsolicited calls.
The regulations require that organisations should not make automated (pre-recorded phone messages) marketing calls without the prior consent of any subscriber.

In the event that you have received an automated marketing call from an organisation you are able to identify, you can make a complaint to this office by completing and returning the complaint form on the ICOs Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations complaints page.
