By creating an account with the Do Not Call Register, you agree to be bound by the following Do Not Call Register access-seeker terms and conditions. Failure to abide by these terms and conditions may result in suspension or deregistration of your account registration or other conditions being placed on your access to the Do Not Call Register.
These terms and conditions may change from time to time. While the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) will endeavour to ensure that changes to the terms and conditions are notified on the Do Not Call Register website, by continuing to submit lists or access the register and associated services, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions as they exist at the time of each access. The terms and conditions are grouped thematically and more details can be accessed by clicking on the relevant area:
1. Under subsection 19(2) of the Do Not Call Register Act 2006, if you have not paid the applicable fee, neither the ACMA nor the contracted service provider (if any) is obliged to accept a list of numbers from you. This does not limit other rights or remedies that the ACMA may have in relation to the applicable fee.
2. Before first accessing the Do Not Call Register, you must register with the ACMA to set up an administration account. This administration account can be used, after selecting (and paying, if applicable) for a subscription type (or types) to submit a list of numbers for checking against the register.
3. You must apply for an administration account using the registration procedure published on the ‘Create an account’ section of the Do Not Call Register website. The acceptance of these terms and conditions is a requirement of the registration procedure.
4. Before you are registered with an administration account, or at any time during the registration of your administration account, the ACMA may ask you to submit to a credit assessment. If so requested, you must provide such information as is reasonably required to allow the ACMA to complete a credit assessment.
Deregistration and suspension
5. The ACMA may suspend your administration account, close (deregister) your administration account or place additional conditions on your registration, if:
a. Your administration account becomes inactive. For the purposes of this section, an administration account becomes inactive if:
i. you fail to keep your administration account details accurate and up-to-date
ii. you have not activated a subscription for 12 months
iii. you have not submitted a list for washing for 12 months and one day.
b. You have failed to pay for a subscription type within the terms of the Do Not Call Register (Access Fees) Determination 2007.
c. You fail a credit assessment conducted by the ACMA.
6. The ACMA will take reasonable steps to contact you, should it decide to deregister, suspend or place additional conditions on your administration account.
7. If an overpayment or duplicate payment is received, the ACMA will hold this as a credit to the account unless a refund is requested. The next time an order is created, the credit will be automatically applied to the order amount and any subscriptions on the order that are fully paid as a consequence will be immediately activated. When applying for a refund or credit, you agree to follow the ‘Refunds policy’ published on the ‘Subscription overview’ section of the Do Not Call Register website. The ACMA will consider applications for refunds, credit notes or list-washing reversals.
Sharing of information between the ACMA and contracted service provider
8. You agree to the ACMA and the contracted service provider contacting you from time to time with information about your administrative account, access to the Do Not Call Register website or the service
9. You agree that you will not:
a. obtain or attempt to obtain unauthorised access to any part of the system, including using an unauthorised administration account
