DO NOT CALL POLICY
This newspaper uses the telephone as one important way to stay in contact with our customers and our potential customers in the community. Because a good relationship with the community is a necessary ingredient of our success, and in keeping with state and federal laws, it is the policy of this newspaper that we will not make sales-related telephone calls to any person who has indicated a desire not to receive such calls. This includes those who have registered with state or federal "Do Not Call lists," as well as those who have previously told us directly that they do not wish to receive such calls.
The Independent Record may at times offer subscription opportunities or solicit prospective customers by calling on private residences.
You may make a request to be added to our Do Not Call list in writing or by telephone. All requests should include your name, address and telephone number. Written requests should be mailed to the address listed above and directed to Circulation. Your telephone number will remain on our Do Not Call list for five years unless you specify otherwise. Of course, if your telephone number changes, you must give us your new number if you want your "Do Not Call" status to remain in effect.
Please keep in mind that if you are on the national DNC list regulations permit us to call you with in 18 months of our last contact, state law allows us to call with in 180 days. We may contact you to inform you of a subscription opportunity even if your telephone number is on the state or national "do not call" list. We like to remind customers as a service that their subscriptions are expiring and to offer special advertising opportunities to selected customers.
