Do you use telemarketing? Cold calling is to be banned. Companies and organisations will only be allowed to phone customers if they have given their explicit consent for this (opt in). Telemarketing aimed at existing customers will be limited as well: you can only call them for a limited amount of time. After that, they will have to opt in. You are no longer allowed to call using a private number, your phone number should always be visible when calling.
