DO NOT CALL POLICY AND PROCEDURE
It is the policy of Girard Sharp LLP (“Firm”) to fully comply with all applicable Do Not Call (“DNC”) laws and regulations regarding wired and wireless telephone communications (whether by live, artificial, or prerecorded voice, telephone facsimile machine, computer or otherwise) to any covered telephone line or number. In a good faith effort to so comply and to provide consumers with an opportunity to exercise their DNC rights, the Firm has established and implemented the following procedures:
(1) No representative of the Firm shall initiate any telephone solicitation, as defined by law, to any residential telephone subscriber before the hour of 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m. (local time at the called party’s location).
(2) Girard Sharp LLP abides by the guidelines set out by the Federal Trade Commission as well as applicable state and local guidelines. The Firm does not use any autodialer or make any robocalls. All Do Not Call requests will be honored. Following are the ways that phone numbers can be put on Girard Sharp LLP’s DNC List:
Upon request and within 31 days, phone numbers are removed from the active calling database and put on the Firm’s DNC List.
(a) if the Firm has the consumer’s prior express permission, evidenced by a signed written agreement which states that the consumer agrees to the contact by the Firm and includes the telephone number to which the call may be placed;
(b) the Firm representative making the call has a personal relationship with the recipient of the call (a personal relationship means that the person called is personally known to the caller); or
(c) the Firm has an “established business relationship,” as defined by law, sufficient to create a reasonable expectation on the part of the consumer that the Firm will call them. An established business relationship with the Firm may extend to co-counsel or an affiliate of the Firm if the consumer would reasonably expect that entity to be included as part of the relationship (an example would be for customer service or billing concerns).
