GRYPHON NETWORKS INTRODUCES EXEMPTION
ADVISOR


Gryphon
Networks Corp., a provider of automated Do Not Call (DNC) and outbound call
management services, has announced the addition of Exemption Advisor to its
compliance suite of outbound calling technologies.


Gryphons Exemption Advisor automatically identifies dialed
numbers that qualify as an exemption under state and federal DNC rules, ensuring
only lawful calls are placed to numbers otherwise restricted by their presence
on state or federal DNC lists.


Gryphon Exemption Advisor is delivered as embedded technology
with Call Advisor, Gryphons DNC compliance management application. During the
normal DNC database query that occurs in real time with every dial attempt, the
technology automatically overrides state and federal DNC numbers in cases where
the business has a qualifying exemption relationship with the consumer.
Company-specific, internal DNC numbers do not qualify for exemption status and
are blocked.
