An Associated Press investigation has found that dozens of companies, including those in the telecommunications and financial sectors, have adopted fax templates as a way to help them track their customers’ calls.
The AP found that in 2013, more than 300 companies had adopted the fax format.
That number has been steadily increasing, as companies have become more sophisticated at tracking call data, including the time of day and location.
The use of the fax as a tracking tool has been criticized as a form of corporate privacy violation and a waste of taxpayers’ money.
Some companies have responded by using the template as a marketing tool.
A company called the Digital Phone Alliance, which works to promote digital technology and promote free phone calls, recently released a video featuring an interview with an unnamed fax maker.
It said it is using the templates to help companies track their call records.
“Our faxes have been used by several different industries to track business and business related activity, from consumer marketing to business accounting,” said David Gorman, Digital Phone’s executive director.
“The templates were designed to help our clients track the time, date and location of their customers calls.”
In the past, faxes were not used as a reliable tracking tool.
The advent of modern technology has changed that, and we have seen an exponential increase in the number of faxes that are being used by businesses and individuals.
“An AP review of state records and interviews with state and federal regulators found that at least 37 states have adopted the template, and in more than 20 states, companies have used the template in the past year.
Some states, including Texas, have not adopted the templates at all.
Some of those states include Alaska, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota and Vermont.
“To put it simply, we are going to continue to work with law enforcement to comply with their requests for information and to help provide their law enforcement with information that will aid them in making the right decisions and in providing the resources they need to do that.” “
We’ve always been open about our intent to provide accurate call records to law enforcement agencies, but this is an issue that is being pushed by law enforcement, which is not the intent of our company,” said Chris Cagle, the general manager of Digital Phone.
“To put it simply, we are going to continue to work with law enforcement to comply with their requests for information and to help provide their law enforcement with information that will aid them in making the right decisions and in providing the resources they need to do that.”
Gorman said he’s not surprised Texas’ decision to adopt this new technology.
“This is not something we were thinking about,” he said.
“When we started Digital Phone, our goal was to help consumers.
We want them to be as accurate as possible, and that’s what we are doing.” “
What we have done is provide a tool that will assist law enforcement in their investigations, in their searches and in their seizures.
We want them to be as accurate as possible, and that’s what we are doing.”
Gormer said he doesn’t know why Texas would have opted for a fax template.
The Texas Tribune thanks its sponsors.
“I would guess it was an internal matter,” he added.
Gorman noted that Digital Phone has had to change its name because of concerns about the template’s use.
The company is also working with the Texas Attorney General’s Office to investigate whether the state’s law requires it to adopt a template.
Texas has a law that requires a company to submit data about a call to law officers within 48 hours, but it is unclear how that information would be obtained.
A spokeswoman for the Attorney General declined to comment on the investigation.
Gormers response to questions from the AP suggests that he doesn’ t agree with Texas’ approach.
“In Texas, the Texas Public Information Act requires a business to submit a report about its customers to the Department of Public Safety within 48 hrs of a call.
The law does not require Digital Phone to submit that information, nor does it require Digital to provide any of its customers with a copy of their fax data,” Gormery said.
