ASACP Names CCBill, TheDatingNetwork, Gaelic WWW Conference as May Featured Sponsors


LOS ANGELES (May 1, 2019) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is pleased to announce CCBill, TheDatingNetwork.com and Gaelic WWW Conference as its Featured Sponsors for May 2019.

ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning said 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 its monthly selection of companies that have demonstrated their staunch commitment to online child protection, encouraging other companies to take a leadership role in keeping children out of and away from adult entertainment,” Henning explained. “By sponsoring ASACP, the industry’s most respected players prove that legitimate adult entertainment and digital media businesses are ‘doing the right thing.’”

Through the efforts of its staff and volunteers, the association makes tremendous use of the support it receives from its sponsor community to continue its 23-year record of success, including notable achievements such as its Child Exploitation Tipline, which has processed more than 1 million reports to-date earning worldwide accolades; while ASACP’s educational, informational, and inspirational resources for digital media companies provide adult market-specific Best Practices and a universal Code of Ethics for businesses, app- and website operators.

ASACP’s Restricted To Adults (RTA) meta label helps parents by preventing their children’s access to billions of adult-oriented webpages and mobile apps and is offered to all site and app publishers free of charge, as are all ASACP services, thanks to the generosity of the nonprofit association’s sponsors and members.

For May, ASACP honors CCBill, TheDatingNetwork.com and the Gaelic WWW Conference as its newest Featured Sponsors, recognizing these companies’ continued support of the association and their continuing commitment to making the internet safer for children.

CCBill

Payment Services Provider CCBill, an ASACP Title Sponsor supporting the association since 2008, serves both merchant and consumer markets alike.

“ASACP is a critical component in both helping to maintain corporate responsibility within online markets and demonstrating our community’s commitment to childhood protection,” CCBill’s Gary Jackson says. “We are proud to offer our support as Title Sponsor, and look forward to continuing our long-standing partnership.”

Jackson represents CCBill on ASACP’s Advisory and Executive Bodies, further demonstrating CCBill’s proud commitment to supporting the association.

“As an invited member of the ASACP Advisory Board, we are honored to contribute to helping the industry remain diligent and engage in what we consider to be the right thing — supporting child protection and preventing child exploitation,” Jackson says. “What some may not know is that the CCBill Ethics and Code of Conduct Policies, which we adopted and applied to our merchants, were developed with the assistance of the ASACP, and working with Tim Henning during their development was a solid contribution to how we operate on this front.”

“With stark governmental regulations looming and in the current global political environment, ASACP’s leadership is vital in representing our industry needs, to help protect from unfair and uninformed actions against our business segment,” Jackson adds. “The efforts ASACP undertakes to focus on child protection measures is something which we at CCBill see as paramount to maintaining a favorable business climate.”

TheDatingNetwork.com

For almost 25 years, TheDatingNetwork.com (previously known as the SexSearch affiliate program) has provided affiliates with some of the best-converting casual and adult dating offers online.

“We have the best dating affiliate program! We’re one of the pioneers in affiliate marketing as well as the online dating industry paving the way since 1996,” said TheDatingNetwork’s Marketing Manager Junior D’Lab. “Affiliates get access to high converting and exclusive, casual adult dating offers with the highest payouts in the industry. What else more could a dating affiliate ask for?”

Because of the personal nature and content of casual dating websites, keeping minors away is vital.

“TheDatingNetwork.com strongly supports and is in agreement with ASACP regarding the protection of children from age-inappropriate materials and being against child pornography,” D’Lab added. “This is why we’ve been a long-term corporate sponsor with ASACP since 2005.”

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, where webmasters, media buyers and sellers, program partners, service providers and others involved in the online entertainment industry including crypto, e-commerce, dating, gaming, or health can 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 in our days,” said Gaelic WWW Conference founder Roland Grotheer. “Companies working in the adult business have a very special responsibility and we are facing this challenge.”

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

“ASACP’s Featured Sponsors highlight the diversity of support the association receives from all adult business segments,” Henning concluded. “The generous contributions by leading companies such as CCBill, TheDatingNetwork.com and the Gaelic WWW Conference is what enables ASACP’s continued positive achievements in improving the daily digital lives of at-risk youth.”
