PayPal set to close accounts of US customers who refuse to consent to third party marketing calls

9th June 2015 • News

PayPal customers in the US will be asked to give consent to automated communications as part of a change to the payment firm’s terms and conditions.

From July, PayPal’s T&Cs will state that customers must accept automated calls, texts and emails. Any customer who declines will be forced to close their account.

PayPal’s  updated terms and conditions states: “You consent to receive autodialed or pre-recorded calls and text messages from PayPal at any telephone number that you have provided us or that we have otherwise obtained.”

The company also confirmed it may share contact details with affiliates.

PayPal said:  “If you do not agree to the amended user agreement, privacy policy or acceptable use policy, you may close your account before July 1, 2015 and you will not be bound by the amended terms.”
