Non credit card verifying fuck sites
Just how the ages of the users of sites will be monitored is unclear, but the issue has alarmed privacy campaigners, since it could mean having to register a credit card with a porn website.
The Government has unveiled plans for age verification on porn websites in its new Digital Economy Bill, set to come into force in 2017.
AVS is used to attempt to legally protect companies from punishment under laws against (for example) disseminating pornography to a minor.
These systems often consist of the user self-reporting their age or date of birth.
And why couldn't they have sorted this in store when I bought the phone?
An Adult Verification System (AVS) is a computing system used by a website to confirm that the user attempting to access their website is of the age required (usually by law) to view the website's content.
