There are two types of marketing calls: Telesales (live) calls: unwanted sales calls from a real person.Automated calls: pre-recorded marketing messages that are played when you answer the phone. Telesales (live calls) Live marketing calls should not be made to anyone who has registered with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) or the Corporate Telephone Preference Service (CTPS), unless they have told the caller that they wish to receive such calls from them.
