ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Hilton Grand Vacations Company has agreed to pay $250,500 in fines to the state of New York for what state officials say were violations of the state’s do-not-call law.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the fine Monday, which is included in a legal settlement with the company.

Officials say Hilton Grand Vacations made more than 330 calls to consumers who were on the do-not-call registry. The company, which did not admit any wrongdoing, also agreed to change its telemarketing practices in New York state.

The do-not-call registry allows consumers to opt out of telemarketing calls. Cuomo says he hopes the settlement with Hilton serves as a reminder to other companies about the need to follow the law.

A message left with Hilton was not immediately returned late Monday.
