It is a legal requirement that ALL organisations do not make such calls to numbers registered on the TPS unless they have your consent to do so. Organisations with which you have an on-going relationship, for example those who regard you as a customer, or in the case of charities, may well gather your consent during the early stages of your relationship with them and will therefore be entitled to call you even if your number is registered on TPS, unless you have previously told them speci cally that you object to them calling you for marketing purposes. e TPS can accept the registration of mobile telephone numbers, however it is important to note that this will prevent the receipt of marketing voice calls, but not SMS (text) messages. If you wish to stop receiving SMS marketing messages, send an ‘opt-out’ request to the company involved. Once a number has been successfully registered it is placed on the national ‘do not call’ register immediately, so organisations engaging in live unsolicited direct marketing calls know not to call it. is can take up to 28 days for the registration to become fully e ective. As TPS registration only prevents marketing calls, organisations will still be able to call you for the purposes of genuine market research. It is FREE to sign up to the TPS register. To register with TPS, telephone: 0345 070 0707 or visit: www.tpsonline.org.uk For more details about TPS and the other preference services such as Mailing Preference Service (MPS) visit: www.tpsonline.org.uk New Forest Business Partnership (NFBP) offer a free weekly Business Support Hour each Wednesday at 3pm.
