| |
Hi Huneybees,

Don't you just hate it when people just call you up to promote their products to you and when you said stop calling me, they simply just won't heed? Enough with the insurance agents & property agents, it's time to put an end to all these unwanted soliciting calls!

Say hi to the Do Not Call (DNC) Registry. They are here to help!

What is Do Not Call (DNC) Registry?
The DNC Registry (Under the Personal Data Protection Commission Singapore) is a national database for subscribers to register their Singapore telephone numbers if they choose not to receive unsolicited telemarketing calls, messages or faxes. The 3 Registers are:
  • No Voice Calls
  • No Text Messages (e.g. SMS/MMS, inclusive of Whatsapp, Line, WeChat, etc)
  • No Fax Messages

    What do organisations have to do?
    Under the DNC Provisions of the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (PDPA), starting from 2 January 2014, organisations have to follow the below requirements:
    • Check the DNC Registry before conducting any telemarketing activities, unless clear consent has been obtained.
    • Organisations cannot send unsolicited telemarketing messages to telephone numbers registered on DNC Registrers.
    • Provide contact information in the telemarketing messages
    • Ensure that calling line identity is displayed when making telemarketing calls

    What about Non-Marketing Messages?
    Organisations do not need to check with the DNC Registry if the messages that they sent are purely for:
    • Service calls (e.g. reminder of an appointment)
    • Market Survey or Research
    • Charitable or Religious causes (e.g. donations to a charitable organisation)
    • Business-to-Business
