|Escalent - Contact Lists: Changes/Removal Questions|

Escalent is a market research company. As such, and since we do not sell anything, we are exempt from the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Telemarketing Sales Rule that governs the National Do Not Call Registry. The law recognizes the value of market research and allows legitimate market research companies to call people that are registered on the National Do Not Call Registry.

Our surveys are voluntary and we respect your right not to participate. Please visit our Do Not Contact page to be removed from our calling list.
