Summary as introduced:
Telephone Privacy Protection Act. Prohibits telephone solicitors from making telephone solicitations to persons who are included on a database of persons who do not wish to receive telephone solicitations. The Department of Information Technology will maintain the database and provide copies to telephone solicitors for a $10 annual fee. Persons may be placed on the database upon written notice and payment of a $10 registration fee and a $5 annual renewal fee. Violations of the Telephone Privacy Protection Act are a prohibited practice under, and are subject to the enforcement provisions of, the Virginia Consumer Protection Act. Telephone companies are required to notify customers about the database and their rights under the Act. The measure also prohibits telephone solicitors from using a predictive automated dialing system to make a telephone solicitation if a telephone call generated by such system does not immediately connect the person answering the telephone call with an individual who is the telephone solicitor or an employee or agent of the telephone solicitor.
