iWantEmpire Signs On as ASACP Corporate Sponsor

LOS ANGELES — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) has announced that iWantEmpire has become its newest Corporate Sponsor.

“We are pleased to announce our support for ASACP,” said iWantEmpire vice president Jay Phillips. “This donation along with our pledge to be an annual Corporate Sponsor affirms our commitment to keep age-restricted content away from children.”

As part of this effort, iWantClips features an adult content warning “pop up” as well as resources for parents who wish to also take an active role in keeping their children safe online.

“ASACP has been a vitally important leader in online child protection initiatives,” Phillips added. “We are proud to stand with them as it is the right thing to do!”

ASACP’s executive director Tim Henning commented, “ASACP is pleased that iWantEmpire has stepped up and taken a leadership role in the fight to protect children from age-inappropriate materials. Like all companies that make use of user-generated content, iWantEmpire faces special challenges in keeping minors out of and away from adult content — and this is something that ASACP can help with.”

Henning added, “ASACP’s sponsors not only do their part to protect children but through their support of the association, enable its vital services, such as the award-winning Restricted To Adults (RTA) meta label that filters out age-restricted materials, along with market-specific Best Practices and universal Code of Ethics that promotes child-safe operation. Additionally, the non-profit association’s 21-year-long record of success is highlighted by its globally recognized Child Exploitation Tipline, which has processed more than one million CP reports to-date — illustrating the value of the association and the effective use it makes of the support it receives from its sponsors, members and contributors.

“ASACP’s sponsors reflect the best of the industry, and are delighted to see iWantEmpire set a great example of professionalism that other companies can follow,” Henning concluded. “Governments around the world are working to force digital media businesses to protect children — so it is refreshing to see serious players making the internet safer for children, simply because it is the right thing to do.”
