Telnames 3rd Party Marketing On/Off Switch...

Post by mikeseaton on Tue 23 Jul 2013, 6:49 am

...just noticed this new switch setting (default = "Off") in the My Account / Account Administration part of the Telnames Control Panel.

Anyone know what changing the setting to "On" will do - there doesn't appear to be any explanation about its effect ?

@Telnamer - thanks - where did you get this from ?

BUT that's NOT the way .tel is supposed to be with the LIST ONCE PUBLISH EVERYWHERE concept !

The above is simply a fairly standard business practice of asking if your details can be forwarded onto "carefully selected third parties" who will then phone or text you.

What selecting this option should do is CREATE AN AUTOMATIC LINK so that all data on your .tel which maps onto the 3rd party's directory etc. is setup/updated every time you make an entry into your .tel - no phone calls, no texts, just seamless publishing of your .tel data by 3rd parties.

As it stands, the Telnames 3rd party option seems to offer nothing more than that already offered by millions of organisations worldwide who hold customer data that they seek permission to sell on !

@Telnamer - OK got it thanks - I didn't realise this non-underlined text was a clickable link until I put the cursor over it.
