Firms asked about robo­calls

Los Angeles Times - - BUSINESS BEAT -

New York’s at­tor­ney gen­eral has sent let­ters to EBay and PayPal telling them to ex­plain pro­vi­sions in their new agree­ments for users that au­tho­rize re­ceiv­ing robo­calls.

Atty. Gen. Eric T. Sch­nei­der­man says con­sumer pref­er­ences for pri­vacy and choice are pro­tected by state and fed­eral laws.

In let­ters to the San Jose com­pa­nies, Sch­nei­der­man’s of­fice said he wants an­swers by June 19 about their ob­jec­tives, ap­pli­ca­tions to af­fil­i­ates and ser­vice providers, and how users can opt out.

PayPal said cus­tomers could choose not to re­ceive au­to­di­aled or pre­re­corded mes­sage calls.

A spokes­woman said EBay looked for­ward to re­spond­ing to the ques­tions.
