ACMA cautions Duct Masters for Do Not Call breaches
Duct Masters Vic Pty Ltd has been given a Formal Warning following an investigation by the Australian Communications and Media Authority that found the duct cleaning company had breached the Do Not Call Register Act 2006 (the Act) by making nine telemarketing calls to numbers listed on the register.
The ACMA found Duct Masters had failed to check its call lists against the register and was unable to produce records showing that it had the consent of customers on the register to make the telemarketing calls.
The ACMA will be monitoring Duct Masters for ongoing compliance with the Act.
The Formal Warning serves to remind businesses using telemarketing to check their call lists against the register every 30 days, as required.
Members of the public can opt out of receiving unsolicited telemarketing calls and marketing faxes by calling 1300 792 958 or by visiting www.donotcall.gov.au. Complaints about telemarketing calls and marketing faxes can be made the same way.
