Telephone Solicitations and DO NOT CALL Compliance
It is the policy of RMAA to comply fully and completely with all federal and Georgia state laws and regulations regarding telephone solicitations. Federal and Georgia law and regulations prohibit the making of unsolicited telephone sales calls to homeowners who have entered themselves on the National Do Not Call (“DNC”) list. The Company also maintains an in-house DNC list. It is the responsibility of every employee or licensee to check both lists and to be certain not to make an unsolicited sales call to a person on either list. If the Company is fined due to a violation of the DNC laws and regulations, the Associate is responsible for the fine and will be billed accordingly.
The FTC has a fully automated and secure website — telemarketing.donotcall.gov — to provide access to the National Registry’s database of telephone numbers, sorted by area code.
The National Do Not Call registry requires a fee, which must be paid by the Associate. For fiscal year 2020, the annual fee is $66 for each area code of data accessed or $18,044 for access to every area code in the registry, whichever is less. The first 5 area codes of data may be accessed at no charge.
You may call when there is an established business relationship.
Employees and licensees may call a consumer with whom they have an established business relationship, provided the consumer has not asked to be on the Company’s in-house Do Not Call list. An established business relationship is based on either: (1) the consumer’s use of the employee’s or licensee’s services within 18 months preceding a telemarketing call (the 18-month period runs from the date of the last transaction between the consumer and the employee or license) OR (2) a consumer’s inquiry or application regarding an employee’s or licensee’s services and exists for three months starting from the date the consumer makes the inquiry or application. This enables employees or licensees to return calls to interested prospects even if their telephone numbers are on the National Registry. In accordance with federal and State of Georgia laws and regulations, it is this Company’s policy to:
