Proconnect understands that there is nothing more important to a business than it’s reputation and part of this reputation is built on adherence to compliance and regulations.
With data protection laws firmly under the spotlight currently you can rest assured that Proconnect is fully committed to providing compliant databases, leads and appointments. As part of this commitment Proconnect holds both the TPS & CTPS licences which helps ensure that consumers rights are protected and your business reputation is upheld.
What is difference between TPS & CTPS?
The TPS enables Individuals (consumers, sole traders, and (except in Scotland) partnerships) to register their objection to receiving direct marketing calls with a central service. This means that the TPS file contains consumer telephone numbers as well as some business numbers.
The CTPS includes corporate bodies such as a limited company in the UK, a limited liability partnership in England, Wales and Northern Ireland or any partnership in Scotland. It also includes schools, government departments and agencies, hospitals and other public bodies. Unlike the TPS, the CTPS is annually renewable and requires subscribers to renew their listing every 12 months.
Therefore if you are contacting ‘business’ numbers for the purposes of sales and marketing, you must screen against both the TPS and CTPS files, as the TPS file contains business number also. If you are solely contacting consumers for the purposes of sales and marketing, then you only need to screen against the TPS file.
Data Protection Policy
It is important that businesses involved in personal data processing and supply have a data protection policy in place which outlines the companies procedures when processing personal data
Proconnect has a full data protection policy & procedure which ensures all data usage and collection is carried out to the required standards and is regularly reviewed and updated to meet with the changing legal requirements.
