What do Missouri statutes say about release of 'directory information'?

*Public Records 610.010, 610.023, 610.024, 610.026
Unless otherwise provided by law, records of a public governmental body are to be open and available to the public for inspection and copying. The governental body may charge up to 10 cents per page for standard copies and the actual cost of the copy for larger or specialized documents (such as maps, photos and graphics). The body also may charge a reasonable fee for the time necessary to search for and copy public records. Research time may be charged at the actual cost incurred to locate the requested records. Copying time shall not exceed the average hourly rate of pay for clerical staff of the public body. A public body may reduce or waive costs when it determines the request is made in the public interest and is not made for commercial purposes.

The term public record includes records created or maintained by private contractors under an agreement with a public governmental body or on behalf of a public governmental body.

Each public governmental body must appoint a custodian of records. The Sunshine Law requires that each request for access to a public record be acted on no later than the end of the third business day following the date the request is received by the custodian. If access is denied, the custodian must explain in writing and must include why access is denied, including the statute that authorizes the denial.

If only part of a record may be closed to review, the rest of the record must be made available.

The law also requires that if a request is made in a particular format, the custodian shall provide the records in that format if it is available.

How can I make my directory information private?

Directory information may be shared, unless steps are taken to restrict that information. Students wanting to restrict their directory information from the University of Central Missouri, need to fill out the “REQUEST FOR EXCLUSION FROM DIRECTORY INFORMATION”. Students may obtain this form by going to the Student Experience and Engagement in Administration 214.

What is and how can I get on the State of Missouri 'No call' list?

 **The No Call list is a list of residential telephone numbers of Missourians who have indicated to the Attorney General's Office that they don't want to be called by telemarketers at home. The law prohibits telemarketers from calling households that have been added to the list, with some exceptions that have been written into the law. You can register all your home phone numbers.

You may register by electronically submitting a form or by calling toll-free 1-866-NOCALL1 (1-866-662-2551).

There is no cost to consumers to get on the list. There will be a cost to telemarketers to get copies of the list.

What is and how can I get on the Federal 'No Call' List?

***The National Do Not Call Registry gives you a choice about whether to receive telemarketing calls at home. Most telemarketers should not call your number once it has been on the registry for 31 days. If they do, you can file a complaint at this Website. You can register your home or mobile phone for free.

How can I report violations of the 'No Call' laws.

State of Missouri-
**No Call Complaint Against Telemarketer

Submit a No Call complaint if you believe a telemarketer has illegally called you under the Missouri No Call law.

  • Answer the two questions below to begin filing a No Call complaint with the Missouri Attorney General's Office.
  • If the number called by the telemarketer is not currently on the No Call list, you can register that number for the next list that will be sent to the telemarketers.
  • Check that your phone number is on the No Call list.
  • Sign up to be placed on the No Call list at http://ago.mo.gov/nocalllaw/nocalllaw.htm.
  • The Attorney General's Office cannot act on your complaint under the Missouri No Call law if the number called by the telemarketer has not been registered for the list.

Federal-
***FILE A COMPLAINT

  • To file a complaint now, your phone number must have been on the registry for 31 days.
  • To file a complaint, we need the date you got the call, and either the name or telephone number of the company that called you.

    *Reminder: Even if your number is registered, companies with which you do business may continue to call you. So may charities, political organizations, and telephone surveyors. Click Here for more information about the companies that may continue to call the numbers on the registry.
