Use of automatic calling system

Mr Brown made this Freedom of Information request to CityWest Homes Limited

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, CityWest Homes Limited should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear CityWest Homes Limited,

I understand that some Housing Associations use automatic calling systems to contact tenants for various reasons including those who may be in arrears with their rent payments. I also understand that the use of automated calling systems is subject to Ofcom’s Persistent Mis-use Statement (December 2016) and UK Data Protection Legislation and enforced by the Information Commissioners Office.

I’d like you to provide the following information in this regard:

1/ Does your organisation use an automatic calling system or systems to contact tenants?

If so,

2/ Who is the manufacturer/provider of the system?

3/ How long have you been using the system?

4/ For what specific purpose(s) do you use the system?

5/ Can you demonstrate Ofcom compliance through system reports?

6/ Does the system provide a mechanism to prevent specific tenants from being called?

I look forward to receiving your reply soon.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Brown
