ASACP Honors AgeChecked, Southern Charms, Porn.com as June Featured Sponsors
LOS ANGELES (June 1, 2018) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is pleased to announce AgeChecked, Southern Charms, and Porn.com as its Featured Sponsors for the month of June 2018.
ASACP honors a select group of sponsors each month for their “over and above” efforts to keep children out of and away from adult-oriented materials and their continued support of the association and its ongoing mission. Its Executive Director, Tim Henning, credits the generous support of its family of sponsors for the association’s multi-decade-long legacy of success as well as its ability to provide positive results in child protection into the future.
“ASACP’s Featured Sponsors represent the cream of the crop of true industry leaders, and we are proud to recognize their contributions towards protecting children,” Henning explains. “The association and its small but extremely dedicated staff make the most of the support it receives from its sponsors, delivering great value for society as we strive to end online child exploitation and build a better future, making sponsorship a socially significant and truly profitable venture.”
ASACP’s unparalleled record of achievement is highlighted by its Child Exploitation Tipline, which has received numerous global awards for successfully processing more than one million CP reports; along with its widely applauded Restricted To Adults (RTA) meta label that helps filter age-restricted materials to protect vulnerable youth; plus digital media market-specific Best Practices; a universal Code of Ethics that guides companies towards child-safe operation; and much more — none of which would happen if it was not for timely support of its valued sponsors.
This month, ASACP would like to thank AgeChecked, Southern Charms, and Porn.com, 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.
ASACP’s exclusive Diamond Sponsor since 2017, AgeChecked provides online age verification to businesses with age-restricted content or products. The company’s services enable adult website owners to easily and effectively comply with a growing global trend towards mandatory online age verification.
“Our mission is to provide businesses with a service that is barely noticeable to the user, whilst meeting the full requirements of the law,” AgeChecked CEO Alastair Graham explains.
AgeChecked offers fast verifications, the widest customer choice of verification methods, and automatic logins for customers who have previously been verified with AgeChecked or partner companies.
“The goals of AgeChecked and ASACP are strongly aligned. Both our organizations work to promote child protection online,” Graham says. “The ASACP has a fantastic track record of doing that over many years and we are happy to support this hard-working charity and the work that it does worldwide.”
An ASACP Title Sponsor since 2003, amateur porn powerhouse Southern Charms is one of the world’s largest sites, with more than two decades of experience in providing women over the age of 18 with an opportunity to have their own website. Accessible to adults only, Southern Charms takes pride in being a clean site that features age-verified models with releases on file for each performer.
“You will not find any obscene material [or any underage models] at all on Southern Charms. You will only find clean adult amateur fun,” explains a company rep. “Please rest assured that if someone communicates to us that they are interested in underage pictures of models, we will report it to the appropriate authorities immediately.”
In addition to its support of ASACP, Southern Charms backs up its business philosophy by making use of RTA labeling and a clean warning page, as well as by securing explicit content within its premium members’ area.
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.
“From leaders in age verification to providers of adult content and beyond, ASACP’s Featured Sponsors demonstrate the ways in which responsible companies support online child protection,” Henning concludes. “This commitment to doing the right thing deserves the admiration of everyone, and should serve as an example for their corporate peers to follow.”
