No Adult Material Policy

No Adult Material Policy

Due to different cultures, material that is appropriate in some countries may not be appropriate in others. For this reason and many others, we maintain a "No Adult Material Policy".

we define "Adult Material" as any of the following:

  1. Any photos or videos showing frontal nudity on either men or women.
  2. Any photos or videos showing women's bare chests.
  3. Any audio clips or text containing sexually explicit material.
We also prohibit the following:
  1. Any sites with direct links to other sites containing such material.
  2. Any site engaged in the sale of sexually explicit items.
In addition we reserve the right to determine what might be considered "sexually explicit" or "sexually related". If your site contains material that you are unsure about, please let us know before signing up with WorldWide Merchant.

Adult Material Policy FAQ

Why we don't allow adult material on their servers?
We have the privilege of hosting many sites including self-help, rehabilitation support groups, hospitals, and many others. We hope our policies will set new standards in the industry as to what kind of material is "acceptable".

As a customer, how would this policy benefit me?
Our customers enjoy the assurance that if the IP addressing ever gets mixed up, their domain name will never pull up an adult site. In addition, WWM customers enjoy the consistently fast servers and clear network. Unlike other Web hosting facilities, we do not have our network congested with users downloading pornographic images.

Adult sites are completely legal... What about "freedom of speech"?
As a citizen of any country with freedom of speech, you have the choice of using another Web hosting facility to host your material. We do not take away the rights of any individual. Just because you can't buy whiskey at McDonalds, does not mean you can't buy whiskey at a liquor store.
