ASACP Honors its Featured Sponsors for August 2017
LOS ANGELES (August 1, 2017) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is pleased to announce its Featured Sponsors for the month of August 2017.
Each month, ASACP highlights a selection of companies that exhibit a strong commitment to corporate responsibility by keeping kids safer in their daily digital lives, through self-regulation and proactive measures that help prevent minors’ access to age-restricted materials.
ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning says the association’s Featured Sponsors show that adult entertainment and online child protection can easily coexist, and notes that “our Featured Sponsors not only do their part to protect children directly, but indirectly through their support of ASACP, demonstrating the comprehensiveness of their commitment.”
“ASACP provides the community and companies alike with the resources to protect children, such as its multiple award-winning Restricted To Adults (RTA) meta label, which prevents children’s access to billions of age-restricted web pages and mobile apps,” Henning explains. “Additionally, our formal Best Practices tailored to specific market segments and a universal Code of Ethics guides companies towards child-safe operation.”
Also among the highlights of the non-profit association’s more than 20-year-long record of success are its internationally recognized Child Exploitation Tipline, which to-date has processed more than one million CP reports — illustrating the value of the association and the effective use it makes of the support it receives.
For August, ASACP honors Porn.com, MojoHost, and OrbitalPay as its latest Featured Sponsors, recognizing their ongoing support of the association and its gratitude for the continuing commitment shown by these companies to make the internet safer for children.
A consistent supporter of the association’s mission, Porn.com has been an ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2008 and is considered by fans to be one of the internet’s top destinations for adult-oriented videos and more.
Operating a video “tube” site that receives submissions from registered content partners, Porn.com bypasses many of the questionable content issues associated with tube sites that allow uploads from anonymous users; which often consist of unauthorized postings of copyrighted material or depictions of underage models.
By controlling the sources of its content, Porn.com provides proof that adult tube sites can operate successfully without having to take a blind eye towards the type of materials they publish.
A Corporate Sponsor that has supported the association since 2009, website hosting specialist MojoHost owns and operates a global network and IP Space, peering and exchanging internet traffic directly with dozens of networks at various exchanges, while boasting a direct connection to the world’s top four networks, and more than 250 Gigabit of global connectivity — making the company “the real deal” in fast website hosting.
According to company CEO Brad Mitchell, ASACP is an important organization that MojoHost is proud to continue supporting.
“ASACP’s mission of protecting children against exploitation and keeping them away from age restricted content is right in line with my goals as a parent, and advocate of corporate responsibility in my role as CEO of MojoHost,” Mitchell explains. “The ASACP Tipline has received more than one million reports since its inception and is an invaluable resource to the FBI and National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.”
“More industry support is needed to continue its operation and I challenge business owners of all size to pick a membership level that fits their budget,” Mitchell adds. “No matter how small the charitable donation or membership level, every dollar counts and is put to good use.”
An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2012, OrbitalPay offers a premier gateway billing solution as well as merchant accounts at competitive rates for all business types, such as product sales, membership and subscription sites, video on demand and live cams, nutraceuticals, and more, including websites that offer adult-oriented content and services.
With more than a decade of experience as a boutique billing service provider to companies of all sizes for over a decade, from start-ups to multi-national conglomerates, OrbitalPay offers superior tools and direct banking relationships backed by a knowledgeable staff, that helps clients define the best banking strategy for their business — including advising clients about problematic content from a billing compliance standpoint.
OrbitalPay serves as a great example of how even non adult companies have taken a responsible stand in the fight against child exploitation by supporting the association, simply because it is the right thing to do.
“This month’s Featured Sponsors range from adult content to web hosting to billing services, underscoring the breadth of support ASACP receives from the industry,” Henning concludes. “Responsibility is a matter of conscience, not market sector, and our Featured Sponsors show it.”
