ASACP Honors its Featured Sponsors for April 2018

LOS ANGELES (April 2, 2018) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is pleased to announce its Featured Sponsors for the month of April 2018, recognizing Adult Centro, The European Summit, and LAL Expo as this month’s industry role models.

According to ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning, by generously supporting the association, its family of sponsors have empowered ASACP’s multi-decade-long legacy of success, while funding its future endeavors and continued positive results.

These results are highlighted by ASACP’s Child Exploitation Tipline, which has received global admiration for processing more than one million CP reports to-date; its multi-award-winning Restricted To Adults (RTA) meta label that helps filter age-restricted materials to protect vulnerable youth; digital media market-specific Best Practices; a universal Code of Ethics that guides companies towards child-safe operation; and more.

“ASACP is proud to recognize the responsible professionals that have proven adult entertainment and online child protection go hand-and-hand,” Henning explains. “As the foundation of our efforts, ASACP’s Featured Sponsors are true industry leaders at the forefront of making the internet safer for children.”

“The association makes the most of the support it receives from its sponsors, executing its maximum effort mission with a minimum budget and staffing to yield the greatest results from its limited resources,” Henning adds. “Child protection is everyone’s business, but it is those businesses that make it a priority that the community can be most proud of.”

ASACP would like to thank Adult Centro, The European Summit, and LAL Expo, for their ongoing generous support of the association and for the efforts of these industry leaders to make the internet a safer place for children living their daily digital lives.

AdultCentro

An ASACP Title Sponsor that has extended its generous support to the association since 2012, AdultCentro offers resources for adult content creators, performers, and publishers, so the company takes online child protection seriously to ensure that minors are not using its wide range of services.

These services allow publishers to build a complete site or insert content feeds into an existing site, while other options bring content buyers and sellers together and allow users to distribute and monetize their content. Altogether, the tools from AdultCentro provide a complete ecosystem for adult entertainment companies, performers and promoters to bring their wares to market, and as such they sit on the front line of the need for online child protection.

“AdultCentro is an industry leader that shows it is possible for adult-oriented material to coexist with the need for online child protection,” Henning says. “The company works with many new performers so it is vital for it to take a proactive approach to age verification and corporate responsibility, which we applaud.”

The European Summit

An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2010, The European Summit (TES) hosts Europe’s leading B2B conference for the online entertainment industries, bringing together top representatives from the affiliate, billing, casual dating, domain name, mobile technology, website and traffic service arena, in a comfortable setting that is conducive to exchanging ideas and information.

TES is also one of the association’s most stalwart supporters over the years, providing considerable, consistent assistance that has enabled ASACP to spread the word about the importance of online child protection to operators across Europe and beyond.

“The European Summit attracts Europe’s most influential adult media companies, making it a prime venue for ASACP to deliver its message of the need to keep children out of and away from adult entertainment,” Henning explains. “As a show of its support, TES provides a high level of hospitality to the association, including numerous fundraisers and complimentary event amenities, illustrating the range of opportunities beyond direct financial support that companies have when it comes to helping ASACP.”

LALExpo

An Official ASACP Media Sponsor since 2017, the Latin America Adult Business Expo (LALExpo) targets the vibrant Latin American market, attracting a growing international and Latin-American audience from companies representing all aspects of the online and adult business world. Because LALExpo is a business-to-business, education and trade event, the general public is not permitted to attend, but a diverse range of companies from the billing, mobile tech, ad network, affiliate sector and more are in attendance. This executive event is capped by the LALExpo Awards, honoring excellence across dozens of industry categories and market segments.

“Colombia has emerged as a vibrant center of the global camming community and broader digital media market, and LALExpo’s goal has always been to promote excellence and responsibility among the companies in this space,” Anthony Rivera, an organizer of the event and co-founder of AJ Studios, says. “Our roots are in the camming community and we serve this group made up of countless independent performers, providing an opportunity for all adults who wish to make a living and support their families and themselves through today’s technology.”

“Of course, with this opportunity comes a great responsibility to do the right thing, and to help ensure that only those who are legally able to enjoy camming and other adult entrepreneurial activities are doing so,” Rivera adds. “This is why we support ASACP and its mission to educate and professionalize the industry in the name of protecting children, as well as restrict attendance at our event to adult business professionals only.”

“From providers of adult content and performer services, to trade events and community outreach organizations, ASACP’s Featured Sponsors for March reveal how responsible companies take online child protection seriously, regardless of their market segment,” Henning concludes. “These companies serve as an example of corporate and social leadership for every business today.”
