Compliance update on information provided via text message following online mobile number entry.
The Phone-paid Services Authority (PSA) today publishes a compliance update to clarify the requirement for pricing and other key information in text messages sent to a consumer’s mobile phone following the mobile number being entered into a website.
This update comes after recent discussions with providers concerning the application of the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) for text messages sent to consumers following the entry of their details into a website.
The compliance update outlines the PSA’s expectations following discussion with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
