What Every Retailer Needs to Know About the TCPA, Reducing Litigation Risk

What Every Retailer Needs to Know About the TCPA, Reducing Litigation RiskAlthough it comes as no shock that retailers sincerely want to comply with the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the Federal Communication Commission’s rules in this area have actually led to an increase in litigation — and businesses of any kind want to reduce risk here.

What to do? A Mobile Marketing Association webinar will provide both answers and insight. The webinar — “FCC Proposes New TCPA Laws – What Every Retailer Needs to Know About The Telephone Consumer Protection Act” — is set for Wednesday, August 5 from 1 to 2 p.m. (CDT).

It’s especially timely.

“On June 18 the FCC issued new requirements for those engaged in text and telemarketing,” reports the Mobile Marketing Association (MMA), sponsor of the free webinar. “What do these new rulings mean to your company? Is your company at risk when making automated outbound calls or sending texts? Is your company taking the right steps to mitigate TCPA risks?”

The MMA is working with partner Neustar, a good source of authoritative information. Federal Trade Commission veteran and Neustar Chief Privacy Officer Becky Burr will be one of the presenters. She’ll be joined by Neustar’s Adam Russell, who will discuss how authoritative consumer intelligence is helping to mitigate risk while also driving operational efficiencies.

Webinar topics include: what retailers need to know about the FCC’s new regulations under TCPA; best practices for mitigating TCPA compliance risk; why verifying consumer data is critical to both risk mitigation and operational efforts; and how the constant change in consumer data requires the most extensive, up-to-date, and accurate data.
