(b) This section does not apply to:
(1) Recorded messages from school districts to students, parents, or employees; or
(2) Messages advising employees of work schedules.
(c) Whenever the message is preceded by a live operator, the operator must, at the outset of the message, disclose:

(2) The purpose of the message;
(3) The identity or kinds of goods or services the message is promoting; and
(4) If applicable, the fact that the message intends to solicit payment or commitment of funds.
(d) A telephonic seller shall not use an automatic
dialing-announcing device, to make calls into or within this state, unless the
