Efforts To Combat Online Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM)

To proactively combat child sexual abuse material (CSAM) online, as we do allow for user-generated content (i.e. comments, posts, etc.), we automatically report CSAM to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). We’re now registered as an Electronic Service Provider (ESP) with their CyberTipline. NCMEC may send those reports to relevant law enforcement agencies around the globe.

Primarily, we’re making use of the CSAM scanning tool integration via Cloudflare which allows Web site owners to proactively identify and act on CSAM located on their Web site. By enabling this tool, Cloudflare will compare content served for our Web site through the Cloudflare cache to known lists of CSAM. These lists are provided to Cloudflare by leading child safety advocacy groups such as the NCMEC.

CSAM is prohibited and we restrict utilizing any of our platforms or services to shop or share this abhorrent material, and frankly, it will not be tolerated. Even if the automation should happen to miss something by some chance, as soon as it’s brought to our attention, we’ll initiate a manual report of it. Just don’t do it… You will, without question, be reported for it and we will cooperate with law enforcement in relation to any such cases.

It’s worth noting, no CSAM has ever been hosted by any of our Web properties. However, we are taking a proactive role in combating it though. Should there ever be such an occasion, any such abhorrent material will be blocked/removed and reported. In addition, the associated user account(s) would most certainly be made inactive as well.
