The Telephone Consumer Protection Act manages the accumulation and use of telephone numbers for the intention of commercial use. This involves both telephone calls and text messages. The TCPA has a set of rules that govern times when calls can be made and information that must be shared with consumers among other requirements. If these rules aren’t followed there are statutory damages per unsolicited call that can be given ranging from $500 - $1500. This white paper reviews what attorneys should know about privacy laws and how they relate to texting to help clients stay away from paying substantial fines.
