Do you know what the ASACP is?
The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to online child protection. Founded in 1996, ASACP is comprised of two separate entities: the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection and the ASACP Foundation.
ASACP is a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization that manages a membership program that provides resources to companies to help them protect minors online, while the ASACP Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. The ASACP Foundation continues to battle online child exploitation through its CP Reporting Tipline, which has processed more than 1 million reports to date and also helps adults prevent underage persons from viewing age-restricted material online through its RTA (Restricted To Adults) website label. You can read more about RTA at rtalabel.org.
The organization has invested 25 years in developing progressive programs to protect minors, and its relationship in assisting the digital media industry’s child protection efforts is unparalleled.
Every month, groups, organizations and entities throughout our industry sponsor the ASACP, helping to keep their mission and important work going. This April, the YNOT Group — or which YNOT Cam is a part — is a co-sponsor. Here’s some more information about the overall endeavor:
Los Angeles, CA — ASACP, the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection, recently announced that YNOT Group as among 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 stated 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 under-age persons 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.”
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,” said YNOT Group, LLC co-owner Jay Kopita. “Thanks for all you do.”
Other sponsors for April include FanCentro and DatingGold.
The generous financial and material support that ASACP receives from its sponsors 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.
“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.”
