Mr Brown made this Freedom of Information request to Curo Housing Group
This authority is not subject to FOI law, so is not legally obliged to respond (details).
This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Curo Housing Group,

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
