ASACP Names FanCentro, Gamma Entertainment, ManyVids as February Featured Sponsors
LOS ANGELES (February 1, 2019) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is pleased to announce AdultCentro, Gamma Entertainment, and ManyVids as its Featured Sponsors for the month of February 2019.
ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning says the association’s Featured Sponsors are among the industry’s most reputable companies, serving as notable examples of how proactive corporate self-regulation and ethical operation make a real difference in protecting children online.
“ASACP is proud to honor a monthly selection of companies that have demonstrated their staunch commitment to child protection and which encourage other companies to take a stand in keeping children out of and away from adult entertainment,” Henning explains. “By sponsoring ASACP, the industry’s most respected players prove how legitimate businesses in the adult entertainment and digital media industries and ‘doing the right thing.’”
Through the efforts of its small but dedicated staff and the help of volunteers, the association makes tremendous use of the support it receives from its sponsors by continuing its near 23-year record of unrivaled success, including notable achievements such as its Child Exploitation Tipline, which has processed more than one million CP reports to-date and earned worldwide respect; while ASACP’s free educational and informational resources and tools for digital media companies provide market-specific Best Practices and a universal Code of Ethics for businesses, app, and website operators.
ASACP’s Restricted To Adults (RTA) meta label aids parents by helping prevent children’s access to billions of adult-oriented web pages and mobile apps, and is offered to all site and app publishers free of charge, thanks to the generosity of the non-profit association’s sponsors.
For February, ASACP honors AdultCentro, Gamma Entertainment, and ManyVids as its newest Featured Sponsors, recognizing these companies’ continued support of the association and their continuing commitment to making the internet safer for children.
An ASACP Title Sponsor that has extended its generous support to the association since 2012, FanCentro 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 FanCentro 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.
An ASACP Corporate Sponsor that has supported the association since 2006, Montreal-based Gamma Entertainment illustrates the commitment that the adult entertainment industry’s most prominent players make towards keeping children out of and away from adult entertainment.
According to the company, Gamma has grown from a home-based business with a single website to become a major force in the adult industry, boasting nearly 60 full-time employees. Gamma attributes its growth to the use of cutting-edge technology and adherence to four basic principles: honesty, respect, reliability, and an up-front way of doing business, as the bedrock of its success.
Gamma demonstrates its leadership by using the RTA website meta-label to protect its sites and by donating rack space for two ASACP-owned servers located in the Gamma data center — providing useful material and technical support, as well as financial aid for the association.
An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2017, ManyVids believes in ethical operation and in making a difference to help change the world.
“We start by giving our MV Stars the technological tools they need to become successful, independent entrepreneurs in the safety of their own home. We believe that empowering our content creators to have complete ownership over the entertainment they make is key to shaping a healthier, sex-positive society that protects the autonomy and integrity of adult entertainers,” says a ManyVids spokesperson. “We also understand how important it is to protect a younger generation who are not equipped to understand adult entertainment.”
“ManyVids is proud to associate ourselves with ASACP and will hopefully entice other companies to do the same,” the spokesperson adds. “This is the first step in the right direction toward protecting youth and creating a safer community where a healthy attitude toward sex is the norm.”
“ASACP’s Featured Sponsors highlight the diversity of support the association receives from all adult business segments,” Henning concludes. “The generous contributions by leading companies such as AdultCentro, Gamma Entertainment, and ManyVids is what enables ASACP’s positive achievements in improving the daily digital lives of at-risk youth.”
