ASACP Names AWE/Jasmin, TheDatingNetwork, and iWantEmpire as its Featured Sponsors for October

LOS ANGELES (October 1, 2018) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is pleased to announce Adult Webmaster Empire (AWE)/Jasmin, TheDatingNetwork, and iWantEmpire as its Featured Sponsors for the month of October 2018.

According to ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning, ASACP’s Featured Sponsors along with all of its industry supporters, help enable the association to continue providing free award-winning services, including the Restricted To Adults (RTA) meta label, market-specific Best Practices and a universal Code of Ethics to guide companies towards child-safe operation. The non-profit association’s 22-year-long record of success is crowned by its Child Exploitation Tipline, which has processed more than one million CP reports to-date and is a perfect example of how ASACP makes effective use of the limited resources it receives from its sponsors.

“ASACP’s Featured Sponsors are dedicated to helping keep kids safer in their daily digital lives,” Henning says. “We honor these caring companies for their commitment to protecting society’s most vulnerable members by supporting the association’s efforts, and encourage other companies to be inspired by this profound professionalism.”

“ASACP works tirelessly to provide the business and technological resources for protecting children,” Henning adds. “This is only possible due to the ongoing support of our valued sponsors and for this, we are truly grateful.”

For October, ASACP honors Adult Webmaster Empire (AWE)/Jasmin, TheDatingNetwork and iWantEmpire as its Featured Sponsors, recognizing these companies’ continued support of the association and their commitment to making the internet safer for children.

Adult Webmaster Empire (AWE)/Jasmin

A Platinum Sponsor celebrating a decade of support for ASACP, AWE, known for its Jasmin brand, unites many millions of users from around the globe via its popular live webcam and chat platform. Because of the unique nature of live cam services, the company takes its responsibilities seriously by preventing children from accessing its site, while ensuring that its cam models are all of legal age. This process starts with the proactive use of an overlaid warning page that alerts visitors that age-restricted content is ahead.

To ensure they meet the minimum age requirements for performers, individuals who register as live cam models on Jasmin.com or its associated sites are subject to a rigorous screening process. The company implements extensive measures to constantly monitor its live content, as an additional proactive measure for protecting minors.

According to AWE/Jasmin co-founder Karoly Papp, it is important for the company to be associated with ASACP, and support its team’s mission of protecting children.

“We have ourselves developed some strong regulations in order to verify the age of the users and to keep children out of adult-oriented materials,” Papp explains, adding, “We have been involved in this association since 2008, and we will keep doing so.”

TheDatingNetwork

An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2005, TheDatingNetwork.com is among the world’s largest dating sites. Through its affiliate program, STheDatingNetwork helps adult-oriented websites monetize their visitors via its portfolio of sites, providing opportunities for companies and connections for consumers alike.

According to the company, 1 in 10 online searches are dating related; and while many online dating sites cater to people looking for love, the majority of people want sex, even those who are married — with 70 percent of married men and 50-60 percent of women admitting to having had an affair during their marriage. For many, TheDatingNetwork is their connection for such a tryst.

Because of the personal nature of this service keeping minors away is vital, so TheDatingNetwork supports ASACP and combines years of experience in the casual dating industry with a committed staff that is dedicated to providing the best customer support possible.

iWantEmpire

An online portal that unites amateur, fetish, and professional content producers with fans of adult entertainment, iWantEmpire flagship site iWantClips has become a top destination for end-users seeking unique material that is uploaded by the site’s content partners — putting it on the frontline of the need for online child protection.

“We are pleased to support ASACP,” said iWantEmpire Vice President Jay Phillips. “Our pledge to be an annual Corporate Sponsor affirms our commitment to keep age-restricted content away from children.”

As part of this effort, iWantClips features an adult content warning “pop up” as well as resources for parents who wish to also take an active role in keeping their children safe online.

“From live cams to casual dating to fan interaction sites and beyond, ASACP’s monthly selection of Featured Sponsors represent the range of adult business segments,” Henning concludes. “These companies stand as excellent examples of proactive corporate responsibility, self-regulation, and industry unity in the battle to protect children online. Thanks to the generosity and leadership of companies like Adult Webmaster Empire (AWE)/Jasmin, TheDatingNetwork, and iWantEmpire, ASACP is able to continue making a positive improvement in the lives of at-risk youth.”
