The ICO has, once again, warned against making nuisance calls by fining Home Logic UK Ltd £50,000 for making marketing calls to individuals who had made it clear they did not want to be contacted by telephone. The company had not properly screened numbers against the Telephone Preference Service (TPS), which allows people to register their number and opt out of receiving marketing calls. Between 1 April 2015 and 31 July 2016, the ICO received 133 complaints from members of the public about nuisance calls made to their TPS-registered numbers by Home Logic UK Ltd. The ICO stated that “Organisations have no excuse – they know that calling people on the TPS register is against the law and that we will come down hard on them if they don’t respect the public’s right to privacy. We continue to see companies suffering the financial and reputational consequences of being caught making nuisance calls, which could have been prevented if they had invested in a TPS licence and made proper use of it. It is baffling that some firms continue to take this business risk.”
