3. What about the legality of fax broadcasting?
Our company provides the delivery fax blasting and fax broadcasting service only, and we cannot provide legal advice for fax broadcasting. We suggest that you refer your fax broadcasting questions to an attorney for specific fax blasting recommendations. However, provided below is some fax broadcast information we have found regarding the laws, and these should be reviewed. You should always have permission from the recipient to fax broadcast many types of faxes. We did read that in March of 2003 a federal appeals court ruled that the TCPA “does not act as a total ban on fax advertising. Advertisers may obtain consent for fax broadcasting through such means as telephone solicitation, direct mailing, and interaction with customers in their shops.” In summary, “if an advertiser wishes to promote its business by fax broadcast, there are many ways for it to secure the consent of willing potential customers.”
There is more fax broadcast information on the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA) available on the Internet. A reliable source is the Federal Communications Commission (FCC); here are some informative fax blasting and fax broadcasting links:
It is recommended that fax broadcast companies making solicitations institute procedures for maintaining do-not-call lists. Under the company-specific do-not-call rules, once a consumer asks not to receive a fax broadcast from a particular company, even if given permission in the past, that this company should not fax broadcast that consumer.
4. Will I receive a confirmation report once my fax broadcast is completed?
Yes. Your representative will provide you with a detailed report on the results of your broadcast. This report will outline your failures and successes, allowing you to update your recipient list – and improve your future success rate.
5. How much advance notice do I need to provide
Broadcast and is there a service charge for rush jobs?
We prefer 3-5 business days hours notice to schedule your fax broadcast, however we will do all we can to meet your request and will charge you a nominal fee for a rush job.
6. What kind of turn around time can I expect?
Turn-around times depend on the size of the broadcast, the amount of notice given to perform the broadcast and whether or not the broadcast is going to be a personalized mail merge document.
7. Am I charged for fax blasting retries?
No. During the fax broadcast we will attempt to send your fax up to three (3) times if the number is busy.
8. Do you charge by the page or by the minute?
The total number of contacts in your recipient list determines the rate. The rate is then calculated by the amount of time a page takes to send times the number of total pages. The time required to fax a page is dependant on the amount of text versus graphics. Fax blasting transmissions can range anywhere from 35 to 120 seconds per page.
