The social equality minister of Israel, Meirav Cohen, updated that they launched a database called “Don’t Call Me” yesterday, December 12th, to promote safety and fight against spam and unnecessary calls, especially for older people.
As per the recent updates, Cohen stated that they have invented and developed the database with the help of the Minister of Economy and the Authority for Consumer and Protection and Fair Trade, Orna Barbivai.
The Social Equality Minister, Meirav Cohen, said that the motive behind developing such a database is to provide a safer and more reliable environment for the country’s elders from unwanted calls from various marketing companies and organizations.
Furthermore, Cohen explained the mechanism and procedure of the “Don’t Call Me” service they invented.
She said that the Consumers who are getting unwanted calls and commercial messages from the marketing companies and bodies offering their marketing proposals could enter their details and fill out the form into the database controlled and operated by the Consumer Protection Authority, which is free of charge.
And the consumer will never receive any such call and message offers from the marketing bodies, and the companies will be restricted from contacting the consumers in the future.
Moreover, Cohen added, the very referral to the customer who chose to subscribe to the reservoir will be in the cow fence with a financial constraint.
Additionally, per the ministry of social equality, the first and foremost aim of the introduced database service is to provide safety to the most vulnerable consumers and those who can get easily trapped by marketing companies.
In the end, the database establishment came into motion after the reported cases of online spam that have come in the daylight in the past time in which older consumers, new immigrants, and people with disabilities were exploited excruciatingly.
