How accurate is our data?
It's the most accurate database you'll find. But don't take our word for it. Listen to what a customer of ours, Jerry Dean of Cherokee Logistics Inc., says first hand. “In less than three days I knew this would pay for itself many, many times over. The information needed to make a decision on prospective sales call is only a click away. The number of employees, how long in business and gross sales are only a very few of the valuable pieces of information afforded to us.
Every single week we update our file with brand new businesses. Then once a month, we update our files with any changes and remove businesses that are no longer open. In one year, the entire database changes dramatically. In fact, it changes by 70% in that one year span. That's what inspired us to give you access to our live, most current information at any time you want.
How do we make our databases better than anyone else? It takes a dedicated team of researchers to individually examine and update records. Next, we personally call every business to validate the accuracy. Nobody else does that. In fact, some companies have computers that do all the work. They randomly search millions of web sites for names. It's just one big data dump with no authentication of where the information comes from or verification that the names are even real. Most are never even updated. Instead, our data is telephone verified so you get nothing but the highest quality, most accurate information. No amount of computer technology can replace that. It may sound like we're bragging, but we're awfully proud.
Our Consumer Data:
We split apart and catalogue 4,300 telephone directories.
Data specialists examine each listing and enhance it with buying habit and lifestyle information from real estate transactions, product registrations, magazine subscriptions, and survey responses.
Every week we release 300,000 new movers.
Every month we match and clean the data with the USPS National Change of Address (NCOA), ZIP+4 and Delivery Sequence Files to standardize and keep the addresses accurate.
How does the National Do Not Call (DNC) Registry work?
If you call consumers at home to sell products or services, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires that you remove phone numbers of those registered on Do Not Call lists. We scrub out phone numbers against the registry every week. By law, you must check every 31 days for new additions to the DNC list. If you call someone on the DNC list, that person may file a complaint with the FTC and you could be fined.
Calls made on behalf of non-profit organizations and politicians are exempt from Do Not Call regulations. Calls made to businesses are also exempt from these regulations.
What is a Subscription Account Number (SAN)?
A Subscription Account Number (SAN) identifies that an organization has registered with the government for updates to the National Do Not Call Registry. A SAN is assigned to your organization after the registration is complete and payment (if required) is received. At the end of the annual subscription period, the SAN expires and you must re-register with the government.
How do I get a SAN number?
To register for a SAN number, go to the National Do Not Call Registry website – http://telemarketing.donotcall.gov.
What is "Sensitive Data?"
If you market to consumers, some selections such as phone number or families with children will require us to provide assistance in following all the privacy regulations. We're here to help, just call us. After a quick approval process, your list can be released for your use. We hope you can appreciate the care and steps that we are taking to protect you and the privacy of the individuals within our database. Some of the areas that are considered sensitive data are listed below.
