Keeping your data clean is essential if you are not to contravene the legislation governing direct marketing. MarketingFile provides the following services to help you.
Telephone & Fax Preference Services
The Telephone and Fax Preference Services (TPS / FPS) mean you can not make an unsolicited 'phone call to just anyone you wish in the UK, nor can you send promotional faxes out to everyone with a fax number.
People and companies not wishing to receive unsolicited calls or faxes can register with TPS and FPS. If you subsequently call them, you risk a fine of up to £5000. Be safe - use NumberCheck to ensure that the number is not registered on the TPS or FPS opt-out lists before you use it - your first 50 checks are free and 1p thereafter.
To access our UK Phone and Fax Preference checking service:
