|Original Source:||ICO (in EN)|
CRDNN was raided by the ICO which after investigation found that the company had instigated 193.606.544 attempted automated calls for the purpose of direct marketing, of which 63.615.075 were connected. CRDNN came to the attention of the ICO when more than 3.000 complaints were made about the nuisance calls.
The ICO found that there was no consent for these calls and in fact many of the complainants had sought to opt-out but CRDNN had not facilitated that. Thus, there was violation of regulation 19 PECR.
The ICO also found that the calls were carried out from spoofed CLIs while during the calls no company information or contact details were provided. In result, people who received the calls could not identify who was making them. Thus, there was violation of regulation 24 PECR.
