The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) has named IMLive, XLoveCam, and Cybersocket as its Featured Sponsors for May 2020.
According to ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning, the association’s monthly Featured Sponsors “are among the digital media industry’s most respected companies and serve as noteworthy examples of how responsible business practices, ethical operation and social awareness can help protect minors from accidental exposure to age-restricted materials.”
“Every month, ASACP honors a selection of stakeholders that support our mission by demonstrating a commitment to online child protection,” said Henning. “We encourage all companies and organizations serving the online space to take a leadership role in keeping minors out of and away from adult-oriented materials by becoming ASACP sponsors today.”
“Now more than ever, as the COVID crisis continues and complicates the online child protection scene, the association needs the community’s support to cope with the dramatic increase in internet usage by homebound [people under quarantine] — and the resulting uptick in user vulnerability,” Henning added. “Together, we can make a difference.”
The support that ASACP receives from sponsors such as IMLive, XLoveCam, and Cybersocket, said a rep, “enable it to continue its near 24-year record of success and to provide a range of educational and informational resources,” including market-specific Best Practices, and a Code of Ethics for online businesses, app publishers and operators of age-restricted websites.
These are the ASAPC descriptions of their May 2020 sponsors:
An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2007, ImLive is a premium provider of live interactive webcam services that unite a large global base of individual performers and studios with customers from around the world.
This puts the company straight at the forefront of ASACP’s mission to keep children out of and away from adult entertainment, which it does by requiring chat hosts to provide photo identification for age verification, and by limiting explicit displays to paid private shows, where only adults are allowed.
Beyond these measures and its support of ASACP, ImLive showcases its strong commitment to online child safety by making use of RTA labeling, and by offering a “warning page” overlay.
For more than 14 years, XLoveCam.com has provided a live cam platform that provides users, affiliates, and models with quality professional service. The company safely serves more than 1 million visitors every day using an infrastructure that is spread over five countries. In 2019, the site reported 125 million unique visitors and nearly 2 billion page views, with a 99.99% positive response rate among users.
XLoveCam.com has set up barriers on its platforms, including RTA labeling, to keep children from accessing its sites; and also ensures that no illegal activity occurs on its platform, through 24/7 monitoring and applying a zero-tolerance policy.
An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2003, Cybersocket promotes gay adult websites to a large and varied audience while providing news, practical resources, and provocative original content for the LGBTQ community.
An industry leader, it has for the past two decades hosted the annual Cybersocket Web Awards honoring the finest gay online services and provides a powerful example of how to keep children out of and away from adult-oriented material, in part by using the RTA label.
