Comments:Prior written consent should not be required if the interactive notification provides you with an option to be added to the company’s do not call list at the push of a button. The requirement of written consent is an unreasonable burden on me and the companies I do business with. If prior consent is required, I should be able to give it orally, electronically or by a touch tone response to an interactive notification. Interactive notifications that inform me of beneficial offers from companies I already do business with are neither “abusive nor coercive”. In many cases without the call from my Telecom company or my Insurance provider I would not be able to efficiently take advantage of savings or renewals of policies which is hardly customer service. I don't want the mail I want the call. I don't believe the Government should regulate what companies I do business with regularly communicate with me about.
