Accolade Global International is a Charlestown-Nevis-Saint Kitts Multi-media Conglomerate. Below are the State, Federal, and Cellular guidelines in which Accolade Global strictly abides by. If you place or receive a call from Accolade Global, you are waiving your right to privacy of the intercepted telephone transaction and/or transmission. This applies to any and all numbers routed to a New York telephone number, which are all recorded.
The following are the laws and guidelines within the state of New York, which we strictly abide by:
Intercepting or unlawfully engaging in wiretapping without the consent of the party being unlawfully acted against is considered a felony. This is considered a felony under the New York Penal Law §§ 250.00, 250.05. Mechanical wiretapping is considered illegal in the state of New York only when the party that has been wiretapped is not involved in the telephone conversation, which is ruled under People v. Gibson, 23 N.Y.2d 618 (N.Y. 1969). This means that only parties from outside the conversation are unauthorized to wiretap or interfere with the phone call. Those who are directly involved in the conversation can record the conversation at hand because they have answered the call, and therefore implicitly given consent to the other party. In addition to all of this, those who speak in the presence of a non-participatory third party should not expect full privacy in regards to the overheard statements. This is legally sanctioned under the case of People v. Kirsh, 176 A.D.2d. 652 (N.Y. App. Div. 1991).
The laws stated above apply to conversations conducted both over mobile lines and landlines under the case of People v Fata, 159 N.Y.S.2d 348 (N.Y.App. Div. 1990).
Newspapers that publish transcripts of an illegally recorded phone call or phone conversation are subject to civil liability according to a state court hearing. This hearing said that the “newspapers knew they were dealing with recorded conversations between unconsenting parties,” according to Natoli v. Sullivan, 606 N.Y.S.2d 504 (N.Y. Sup. Ct. Oswego County 1993), aff’d, 616 N.Y.D.2d 318 (N.Y. App. Div. 1994).
Publications are vulnerable to similar laws. One such law that publications are vulnerable to claims that “tampering with private communications,” is considered crime. This crime is widely considered a misdemeanor instead of a serious felony under the N.Y. Penal Law § 250.25. An individual is guilty of such a crime when he or she divulges the contents of some form of private, written communication that has knowingly been opened or read. This is also found under the N.Y. Penal Law § 250.25.
