Recording Own Phone Call

Discussion in 'Legal Issues' started by Nowler, Oct 2, 2017.

    Hello,
    My question is in relation to Ireland.
    SEMrush
    My internet provider told me today that I was not allowed to record our conversation and that if I did, she would terminate the call.

    I was under the impression that as long as one party in the conversation consents to being recorded then it was legal? As per some 1993 amendment or addition to the 1983 law on telecommunications?

    Also, wouldn't the fact that I was told by them that the call was being recorded for training a record purposes kinda negate the need for me to even have to give consent to my own recording of it?

    Thanks in advance

    I think Ireland is a two-party consent country.

    The training messages warn you so you can hang up.

    In some places you can tell the operator you don't want to be recorded, others say you give your consent by staying on the line.

    If you can keep a record of other communication channels like email and social media, why not a phone call?

    Different places, different rules - falls under wire tapping laws.

    If you are in the United States, it depends on which state you are in. Like in California, I know that both parties need to know the call is being recorded. Further to that, if I live in Texas (which states only one person needs to know) but call California, California's law still applies. At least that is how I interpreted what I read a few years ago.

    When I asked the question here, I also asked citizensinformation.ie (ireland) and they said that I was in fact within my rights to record the conversation as long as 1 party consents.

    Thanks for your input folks,
    I appreciate it.
