Our clients hire us to advise them regarding state and federal rules regarding treatment of sensitive consumer information when conducting telemarketing campaigns. These restrictions include security standards, disposal standards and how such information can be used or shared with third parties.
Although the Federal Trade Commission does not usually have specific rules for telemarketing privacy, it often will use its general power to prohibit unfair trade practices to enforce penalties when a breach occurs. We can advise you on standards to protect you from such actions.
We are also knowledgeable about other privacy regulations such as HIPPAA (which regulates disclosure of protected health information by healthcare providers) and Gramm-Leach-Bliley (which regulates the disclosure of financial information by financial institutions).
