ICO enforcement action

Industry News | 07/09/21

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) fined a Glasgow-based company for making more than half a million nuisance marketing calls.

The unsolicited calls were about non-existent Green Deal energy saving schemes including boiler and window replacement, loft insulation and home improvement grants. The calls were made to telephone numbers which had been registered with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) where people had not given their permission to receive them.

The company was fined £150,000 by the ICO.
