ASACP Works with TGP Leaders To Develop Best Practices
by: Joan Irvine
(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- ASACP (ASACP.org) is the organization that helps the adult site industry make a difference in the battle against child pornography. In addition, ASACP provides a self-regulatory vehicle for its members through a Code of Ethics that promotes the protection of children through responsible, professional business practices (ASACP.org/bestpractices.html).
ASACP in conjunction with industry leaders have developed Best Practices (BP) for various segments of the industry. Until recently, BPs were only available to Search Engines/Directories, Billing companies and Affiliate programs. Through working with TGP leaders, ASACP is pleased to announce its BP for the TGP segment.
ASACP's Best Practices for TGPs
* Comply with relevant ASACP Code of Ethics (ASACP.org/membership.html).
* On Index (warning) page: include all disclaimers, age verification, etc and exclude explicit images to prevent children from unknowingly viewing adult material.
* Know your link partners
* No automatic submissions
* All submissions and galleries verified by human
* Visually review all pay sites promoted through free hosted galleries
* Do not link to galleries with content that is or appears to be under 18
"ASACP wishes to thank Scott Hjorleifson, Sleazy Dream, and Mark Hurson, Gallery Traffic Services, for working with the ASACP Advisory Council and the leaders in the TGP segment to obtain input and feedback. As a result of having these new BP, ASACP now can accept membership applications from TGP companies. "ASACP is pleased to announce that effective January 1st Sleazy Dreams and Gallery Traffic Services will join the other industry leaders in their support of ASACP by becoming Sponsors," said, Joan Irvine, executive director, ASACP.
Gallery Traffic Service sells traffic and advertising on some of the largest TGP/MGP websites in the world! We are proudly Canadian with an International client base. "Here at Gallery Traffic Service we take pride in offering impeccable customer service and operating at the highest level of legal and moral standards. We are thrilled to join the cause against Child Pornography by supporting ASACP," said Mark Hurson.
"ASACP is an organization that I believe any responsible Adult Company should get behind. To put it simply, they do good. ASACP stands for something we all should believe in - stopping child pornography. Think about it - even if they stop just One pedophile and save Just One child from being molested, isn't that worth supporting!" said Scott Hjorleifson, SleazyDream.com.
