ASACP Honors FanCentro, SpankBang, Gaelic WWW Conference as Featured Sponsors for May 2022

LOS ANGELES (May 2, 2022) — ASACP, the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection, is pleased to name FanCentro, SpankBang, and Gaelic WWW Conference as its Featured Sponsors for May 2022.

ASACP’s Featured Sponsors are among the industry’s most respected companies. These industry leaders demonstrate how corporate responsibility, ethical business operation, and several simple technical measures can protect minors and other users from accidental exposure to age-restricted materials online.

As a nonprofit association, ASACP relies on the caring support of companies and other organizations willing to assume a proactive leadership role in the fight to protect children online.  

“ASACP’s family of sponsors enables the association to raise awareness of the many issues surrounding online child protection and provide solutions tailored to today’s emerging platforms,” ASACP Executive Director Tim Henning said. “Industry leaders and other stakeholders have joined together to support the association’s vital work because we can all make a difference by protecting the most innocent and vulnerable members of society — our children.”

ASACP’s ongoing successes are made possible by its sponsors’ guidance and support. These successes include providing free child protection resources, market-specific Best Practices, and a comprehensive Code of Ethics for app and age-restricted website publishers. Positioned at the pinnacle of ASACP’s achievements is its RTA (Restricted To Adults) meta-labeling system that helps prevent children’s access to adult-oriented web pages; and its CP Reporting Tipline, which has processed more than 1 million reports to date.

As with all of ASACP’s services, these tools are free of charge, thanks to the ongoing generosity of the association’s family of sponsors — including May’s Featured Sponsors — FanCentro, SpankBang, and Gaelic WWW Conference.

FanCentro

An ASACP Title Sponsor since 2012, FanCentro is an uncensored social network that lets influencers connect directly with fans through content feeds, clips, DMs, stories, live streams, and premium social subscriptions. FanCentro has been an industry leader in age-verification for both models and their fans, understanding that a responsible industry is a healthy industry.

“We’ve supported ASACP for nearly a decade and are proud to work in an industry that takes this fight seriously,” says Kat Revenga, Vice President of Marketing at FanCentro. “As a company, we are committed to creating a safe, online environment where influencers can thrive. That means working side-by-side with leaders like ASACP to stop the distribution of illegal content.”

FanCentro believes in empowering influencers to build their business by creating a suite of first-in-class tools to manage, monitor and market their fan content. In addition to its feature-rich platform, FanCentro runs the acclaimed Centro University, a pioneering educational program for online influencers and content creators. Centro U works with experts and leaders to produce in-depth webinars and courses on shooting and marketing to ethics and accounting.

SpankBang

SpankBang.com is an adult-oriented video “tube” site with a wide range of user-generated content (UGC) covering numerous niches. Offering free access to adult visitors, SpankBang helps secure its content from viewing by minors through the use of ASACP’s RTA meta-label. In addition, a robust content flagging and reporting system for users also help ensure that children and any illegal activity do not appear on the platform.

SpankBang satisfies its visitors by presenting a growing collection of trending models and videos. The site also embraces independent content creators, their marketing partners, and website and app developers who share SpankBang’s videos on their platforms, helping to build a broader community of users.

“As a forward-looking adult platform, creating a safe and inclusive online space has been one of our paramount goals,” said a company spokesperson. “SpankBang has been a proud sponsor of ASACP for years, and we will continue to support the association’s humanitarian mission in the future.”

Gaelic WWW Conference

An ASACP In-Kind Media Sponsor since 2017, the Gaelic WWW Conference takes place every other year in beautiful Ireland, offering three days of business, panels, and Irish lifestyle. The event attracts web admins, media buyers and sellers, program partners, service providers, and others involved in the online entertainment industry, including crypto, e-commerce, dating, gaming, or health, who gather to carve out a common ground for growth in a comfortable environment.

“We are happy to support ASACP with our webmaster conference in Ireland, as child protection is one of the most important tasks these days,” said Gaelic WWW Conference founder Roland Grotheer. “Companies working in the adult business have an extraordinary responsibility, and we are facing this challenge.”

“Let’s face it, we all need to work with trust and respect together,” Grotheer added. “Let us look forward together and talk about the journey’s path and how we can best manage it jointly in a wonderful location in Ireland.”

“ASACP is grateful to FanCentro, SpankBang, and Gaelic WWW Conference for their continued commitment, generosity, and leadership in supporting the association and its mission to protect children by keeping them out of and away from adult-oriented digital media,” Henning said. “ASACP’s family of sponsors are united in pursuing this goal and represent the industry’s best and brightest. We encourage other media platforms and service providers to join us in building a better future.”
