ASACP Honors FanCentro, DatingGold, YNOT Group as April Featured Sponsors

LOS ANGELES (April 6, 2021) — ASACP, the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection, is pleased to name FanCentro, DatingGold, and YNOT Group as its Featured Sponsors for April 2021.

Ranked among the digital media industry’s most respected companies, ASACP’s Featured Sponsors serve as great examples of corporate responsibility and ethical operation through proactive measures that help protect minors and other viewers from accidental exposure to age-restricted materials.

ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning revealed that the nonprofit association’s success relies on the continued support from the companies and organizations that are willing to take a leadership role in the fight to keep children out of and away from adult-oriented materials.  

“ASACP’s sponsors promote online child safety by supporting the association and taking several simple steps to help protect the innocence of youth,” Henning said. “This support is vital in educating publishers and other stakeholders about the need for these measures and how they can best be implemented.”

The generous financial and material support that ASACP receives from its sponsors, such as FanCentro, DatingGold, and YNOT Group, power its 25-year record of success and enables its free child protection resources; including market-specific Best Practices and a Code of Ethics for online businesses, app publishers, and all operators of age-restricted websites.

Highlighting ASACP’s many significant achievements are its globally recognized RTA (Restricted To Adults) meta labeling system that helps parents prevent children’s access to adult-oriented webpages and mobile apps; and its CP Reporting Tipline, which has earned worldwide respect for processing more than 1 million user reports to date.

As with all of ASACP’s services, these tools are provided to every website and app publisher free of charge, thanks to the ongoing generosity of its sponsors.

For April, ASACP honors FanCentro, DatingGold, and YNOT Group as Featured Sponsors, recognizing the continued commitment that these companies make to keeping the internet safer for children and more relaxing for their families.

FanCentro

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.

FanCentro consolidates the most popular models and influencers on social media in one place so that fans can enjoy exclusive access to the model’s private FanCentro Feed, plus their premium Snapchat, Instagram, and other social media accounts.

FanCentro provides models with all of the tools needed to successfully monetize their fan base and offers a complete ecosystem for adult entertainment companies, performers and promoters to bring their content to market; and as such they sit on the front line of the need for online child protection.

DatingGold

A valued ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2007, casual dating and webcam affiliate program DatingGold.com demonstrates its commitment to protecting children by including the RTA label on its flagship cam site WebCamClub.com, and dating site, AmateurMatch.com. It also offers many other niche cam and dating sites, as well as co-branded affiliate sites.

Although ASACP holds its sponsors to the highest ethical standards, cam and dating sites are faced with additional membership requirements because they contain user-generated content that is produced outside of commercial channels, which regulate a performer’s proof of age — so extra steps are needed to help ensure that only lawful images and consenting adults are displayed.

Here, DatingGold excels as an example of how proactive measures by content providers can make a difference in keeping children safe online.

YNOT Group, LLC

An ASACP In-Kind Media Sponsor since 2016, the YNOT brand was founded in 1996, with a goal of providing the earliest and most successful website developers with a central hub where they could network and exchange ideas and traffic. Today the company offers a variety of B2B services, resources, and events for adult businesses and specifically for the Webcam industry and performers, anchored by its flagship websites YNOT.com and YNOTCam.com providing industry news, interviews, marketing opportunities, and more.

Additional YNOT branded services include hosted email marketing and delivery platform YNOTMail.com, adult industry marketing automation software YNOTMarket.com, as well as annual events including YNOTAwards.com which awards excellence in the B2B space at TES Prague every year since 2011, and the YNOT Cam Awards and YNOT Cammunity model summit in Hollywood which is the only conference in North America that fully supports the webcam and clips sectors of the industry and the models who work in it. In addition, YNOT added the virtual-only YNOTSummit.com industry tradeshow in 2020, which will continue annually even after in-person events resume.

“YNOT continues to support and appreciate the efforts of ASACP to make the Internet a safer place,” says YNOT Group, LLC co-owner Jay Kopita. “Thanks for all you do."

“ASACP’s Featured Sponsors take action when it comes to online child protection, and so can you and your company, too,” Henning concluded. “We are grateful for the commitment, generosity, and leadership displayed by our sponsors, including long-term supporters FanCentro, DatingGold, and YNOT Group, and we encourage other market leaders to join us in our valiant and much-needed mission.”
