Chaturbate Becomes Newest ASACP Corporate Sponsor
LOS ANGELES (April 19, 2017) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is proud to announce that Chaturbate has become its newest Corporate Sponsor.
An ASACP Executive Member since 2013, the live webcam company celebrated its anniversary of association support this year by elevating its status to that of Corporate Sponsor.
“Chaturbate.com fully supports — and encourages other adult entertainment leaders to support — the mission of ASACP in protecting children from exposure to sexually explicit materials,” explains Chaturbate COO Shirley Lara. “[Our] industry peers, as supporters of free expression by and for consenting adults, have a responsibility to take a strict, zero-tolerance policy on all online activity involving minors in any way.”
ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning says the association uses the support it receives from its sponsors to fund initiatives such as its internationally recognized Child Exploitation Tipline, which has processed more than one million CP reports since its inception; and ASACP’s multiple award-winning Restricted To Adults (RTA) meta labeling system that prevents children’s access to adult-oriented web pages and mobile apps. Market-specific Best Practices and a universal Code of Ethics help guide digital media companies towards child-safe operation and are also among ASACP’s tangible benefits.
“As a non-profit association, ASACP survives on the generosity of its sponsors, without whose help we would not be able to carry on our mission and achieve our near 21-year-long record of success,” says Henning. “By stepping up its support, Chaturbate joins an elite family of industry insiders that understand the value of doing the right thing.”
“By demonstrating its leadership and proactive stewardship, Chaturbate shows that professional adult companies can operate as professionally as their mainstream counterparts,” Henning adds. “This sends a positive and productive message far beyond the borders of our industry — which is a vital necessity these days when the future of adult choice on the internet is up for grabs.”
