The ICO has raided a call centre which it believes to be responsible for making millions of nuisance calls using automatic dialling technology. The ICO has claimed that the calls are made anonymously, are sent without consent and it is impossible to opt out of receiving them. The ICO has removed documents and computer equipment from the call centre and will consider what further action to take in order to compel the organisation to comply with the rules regarding recorded telephone calls. This may include issuing a civil monetary penalty and or an enforcement notice.
