The Information Commissioners Office (ICO) launched an investigation after 190 people complained about the calls between April and August 2015, 167 of those directly to the TPS.
Andy Curry, ICO Enforcement Group Manager, said:
“When people sign up to the TPS it’s because they do not want to be bothered by companies phoning up and selling them things.”
“People are right to complain when firms are not mindful of the rules.”
The company traded under the names Industrial Workers Office and National Advice Clinic.
The ICO has issued an enforcement notice requiring the company to stop calling people registered with the TPS. Failing to comply with the notice is a criminal offence, and could lead to legal action.
