2257 Statement of Compliance

Exemption: Content Produced by Third Parties

The operator of the Website is not the “producer” of any depictions of actual or simulated sexually explicit conduct that may appear on the Website. The operator of the Website limits its handling of this content, and only performs the activities of transmission, storage, retrieval, hosting, or formatting of material that may depict sexually explicit conduct, all of which material appears on the Website as the result of actions taken by third-party users of the Website. All parts of the Website that contain user-generated material are under the control of the relevant user, for whom the Website is provided as an online service by the operator. In accordance with 18 U.S.C. § 2257(h)(2)(B)(v) and 47 U.S.C. § 230(c), the operator of the Website may delete materials appearing on the Website as the result of actions taken by the Website’s users, which materials are considered, in the operator’s sole discretion, to be indecent, obscene, defamatory, or inconsistent with the policies and terms of use for the Website.


All persons that appear in any visual portrayal of actual or simulated sexually explicit conduct appearing on, or otherwise contained in, this website were over the age of eighteen (18) years at the time the visual image was produced. Records required for all depictions of actual sexually explicit conduct by Title 18 U.S.C. 2257 are on file with the appropriate Records Custodian. All other visual depictions displayed on this website are exempt from the provision of 18 U.S.C. 2257, 2257A and/or 28 C.F.R. 75, because 1) they do not portray conduct as specifically listed in 18 U.S.C section 2256 (2)(A) (i) through (iv), 2) they do not portray conduct as specifically listed in 18 U.S.C. section 2257A, 3) they do not portray conduct listed in 18 U.S.C. section 2256(2)(A)(v) produced after July 27, 2006, or 4) are otherwise exempt because the visual depictions were created prior to July 3, 1995.
