Many consumers do not realize that there are laws created to protect consumers from unwanted telemarketing calls and data breaches. Companies are obligated to respect and protect a consumer’s privacy unless the consumer has given the company permission otherwise. If you’re the victim of unwanted telemarketing calls or your personal information was stolen or leaked by a company, laws like the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and data breach notification are there to help.
Unwanted Telemarketing Call Law
Telemarketing calls never seem to stop once telemarketers get your number. While you can submit your landline and mobile numbers to the National Do Not Call list, this doesn’t always stop all telemarketing calls. If you’ve receiving unwanted telemarketing calls or are being harassed by telemarketers, the Crowder McGaha Firm might be able to help.
Telemarketing companies must have permission to call you if your number is on the National Do Not Call list. Companies you’ve done business with, for instance, are able to contact you according to telemarketing rules established by the TCPA. However, the TCPA rules dictate that telemarketers who don’t have permission or who you have asked to stop calling must not call you in most instances.
For every instance where a telemarketer who does not have permission to call you calls, you may be entitled to up to $1,500 for each violation of the TCPA. Our attorneys are ready to help victims of unwanted telemarketing call abuse and help return your life to peace and quiet.
Data Breach Law
Companies and retailers have an obligation to protect consumers’ personal information. If your information has been stolen or leaked, the Crowder McGaha Firm may be able to help you ease the burdens of a data breach. Data breaches are often identity thieves working on a large scale, stealing thousands of consumers’ personal information at one time. Other times, data breach victims’ information is held for a ransom to coerce retailers into paying data thieves sums in exchange for the safe return of private information. Data breaches can occur in many ways, including when thieves steal information digitally or steal computers to gain access to client databases.
If you have been notified that your data was stolen or believe you are the victim of a data breach, contact our attorneys to find out if we might be able to help you.
