QIAGEN Unwanted Fax TCPA Settlement Notes
- ARcare v. QIAGEN North American Holdings Inc., et al.
- Case No. 43CV-17-47
- Pending in the Circuit Court of Lonoke County, Arkansas
Plaintiff ArCare filed this class action lawsuit against QIAGEN alleging the company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act or TCPA by sending unsolicited fax advertisements without the requisite opt-out language.
The TCPA makes it unlawful to send fax advertisements without prior express permission, a prohibition commonly referred to as the junk-fax ban provision of the TCPA. At the same time, the TCPA requires opt-out notices on all unsolicited fax advertisements.
According to the complaint, QIAGEN transmitted one or more unwanted fax messages from October 13, 2012 through August 30, 2018 that advertised good or services and did not include a proper opt-out notice such as a toll free number or fax m=number where the recipient could request to no receive any future fax advertisements.
QIAGEN denies that it did anything wrong, and denies that it violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by sending unsolicited faxes without specific opt-out language required under the TCPA. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the QIAGEN Unwanted Fax TCPA settlement website.
