TCPA Guardian Glossary and Information

What is TCPA? 

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) requires prior express written consent for non-emergency autodialed, prerecorded, or artificial voice calls to wireless phone numbers, as well as for prerecorded telemarketing calls to residential wireline numbers. As a practical matter, this means that a purchaser of leads will face a higher standard to prove that the consumer did, in fact, consent to be called in the event that they call a consumer.
