Labelling with ICRA
Web Action Internet Services understands the value of the Internet as
a powerful medium in all aspects of education, business, and entertainment.
Consequently, we are committed to protect children from potentially harmful
material, whilst at the same time maintaining the ideals of free speech
on the Internet.
As a result, Web Action Internet Services implements ICRA labelling as
standard in all its web designs*.
How it works?
ICRA has developed a system that allows website designers and owners
to label their content, according to the type of the material published
on their website. The content labels, generated by ICRA conform to an
Internet industry standard known as PICS, and are embedded into the web
page, which prevents children viewing potentially harmful material via
their browser settings.
The Internet Content Rating Association is an international, non-profit,
independent organization that allows Internet Users to make informed decisions
by means of objective labelling of content.
ICRA's dual aims are to protect children from potentially harmful material
whilst preserving free speech on the Internet.
ICRA is also a UK registered charity and is supported by many leading
Internet companies: AOL Europe, Bell Canada, BT, Cable & Wireless,
Digimarc, The Internet Associaton of Japan, Microsoft, PAGi, R3Net, Solarsoft,
T-Online, Tiscali, Verisign, Verizon and Yahoo!, amongst many others.
Action Internet Services is pleased to be an Associate Member of the Internet
Content Rating Association
