LOS ANGELES — BoodiGo.com, the new adult entertainment-oriented search engine making waves with its commitment to user privacy and efforts to prevent websites with pirated content from making their way into its search responses, has announced a partnership with the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) that will enable BoodiGo.com to screen out another manner of illegal website from its responses: sites that traffic in child pornography and the abuse of children.
“When it comes to something like child pornography sites, in our view a guiding credo like ‘Don’t be evil’ simply isn’t sufficient,” said Colin Rowntree, a BoodiGo.com founder. “We feel compelled to be proactive here, not just reactive by taking down links to child porn when they are reported to us, but to make an effort to keep images and sites like these from being found using our search engine in the first place.”
“By screening out and redirecting searches based on the wealth of data that ASACP has compiled over the years,” Rowntree explains, “we’re augmenting our ability to serve our primary purpose, which is to be a resource where adults find legitimate adult entertainment made by and for consenting adults.”
Under the new partnership, ASACP is supplying BoodiGo with a variety of data, including search terms commonly used to locate child porn online, and BoodiGo in return is redirecting users who enter those search terms to resource pages on the ASACP website.
ASACP Executive Director Tim Henning said that BoodiGo and other ASACP supporters “exemplify the highest ethical and operational standards by seeking to actively protect children.”
“Proving child protection is one of their highest priorities, BoodiGo is not only blocking search terms that seek illegal and sexually abusive content of minors online, it is also furthering the fight against this heinous material and deterring those that would seek it out by redirecting these searches to ASACP,” Henning stated. “This is a fight that can only be waged through the vital support of companies such as BoodiGo, who set an example worthy of following.”
Launched last month, BoodiGo eliminates search results from sites that are known or potential security threats, ensures that all BoodiGo sessions are HTTPS-encrypted, and works closely with rights-holders to keep unlicensed and illegal content from appearing online, providing users with an enhanced search experience in a safe, private and anonymous setting.
