I am an internet entrepreneur and would like to start a list/scheduling service similar to ZocDoc but for industries that are predominantly consultation based. I would like a lawyer to review the legality of the following business
operation. The purpose of this is for my service to drive business signups at scale.
The operation is as follows:
1. The internet site lists business "profiles" which are filled with information collected from publicly data sources such as websites, Yelp, or LinkedIn profile
2. Additionally these profiles have "schedules" which list open time slots for a telephone consultation according the businesses hours listed on aforementioned sources
3. Customer picks a "slot" and inputs their contact details
4. The internet site sends via email a notification to the business owner that an anonymous customer would like a telephone consultation at the specified time
5. Full details of the customer is revealed to the business owner provided s/he signs up to "claim" the his/her profile on the internet site. this is sent via email.
6. "Claiming" the profile allows further customers to schedule consultations with the business directly, i.e. without the anonymized customer email step in #4
