Political Campaigns

Political and Non-Profit Risk under the TCPA

Political and non-profit risk under the TCPA has few exceptions.  Calls to landline numbers are generally exempt from the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)’s do-not-call rules (with some exceptions).  However, the TCPA limits the use of autodialed calls, texts and prerecorded voice messages (“robocalls”)  to wireless numbers. The cost of a single TCPA violation can be up to $1,500. Which is why it is crucial to identify wireless numbers in your data and remove known litigators before beginning your campaign. Experienced TCPA litigants will pounce on any opportunity to bring forth class action litigation, no matter who you are or what you represent.
