SyncCore carries out a strict Business-to-‐Business policy and avoids calling Consumers during its calling/marketing campaigns. In the unlikely event of a consumer being part of the SyncCore calling/marketing campaigns, SyncCore fully respects the wishes of those consumers and prospective consumers who do not want to receive telephone solicitation calls from SyncCore in their homes.
It is SyncCore’ss Policy not to make a telephone solicitation call to:
- Any person who has requested that SyncCore not make such calls to the person’s residence, or;
- Any person who has put his or her telephone number on a national or state Do Not Call registry, except as otherwise permitted by law.
A “telephone solicitation call” means any call that is made for the purpose of encouraging the purchase of products and services from SyncCore.
SyncCore maintains a list containing the telephone numbers and names of those persons who have requested SyncCore not to receive telephone solicitation calls from SyncCore.
Anyone may be placed on SyncCore’ss Do Not Call list by emailing SyncCore at donotcall@SyncCore.io The request must provide the 10–‐digit residential telephone number that is not to be called and the person’s name. Once a request has been made, SyncCore will add the telephone number and name to its Do Not Call list within thirty (30) days. SyncCore will maintain the telephone number and name on its Do Not Call list for five (5) years, unless a request is made by the person to have the number removed. If a person’s telephone number changes, another request must be submitted to have the new number added to the SyncCore Do Not Call list. SyncCore intends to comply with all federal and state Do Not Call laws.
SyncCore will answer any questions regarding its Do Not Call Policy when sent to DNCQuestions@SyncCore.io
