What does this mean?
Once you register your number under the DNC, you SHOULD not be receiving any calls/sms/faxes from individuals/companies trying to sell you products or services (including property) This gives you back the right not to be disturbed by unwanted calls/sms/fax.
HOWEVER, you can still give permission to individuals/companies to send you calls/sms/fax.This means that now, you have to authorize them before they can contact you for any marketing of products or services. For example, your insurance agents and real estate agents need your permission before they can call you. Similarly, if today, you are looking for a property and register your interest for a property in newlaunchfinder.com for example, you give us your authority to contact you via SMS/FAX/CALL . This means even if your number is under the DNC list, newlaunchfinder.com will still be able to call or text you.
Showflat/ Roadshows Registration of Interest
If you have been approached by real estate salesperson for a property that you are interested in, they would have to ask you to sign or email them a form to allow them to call/text you even if your number is under DNC. Hence if you are actively looking for a property, it will be wise to authorise them to send you updated information. In the event you do not want to be disturbed in future, kindly inform the real estate salesperson to stop.
