CEASE VS INFORMATION COMMISSIONER’S OFFICE
We are threatening to take legal action against the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for failing to protect children’s data from misuse by porn sites. This exposes children to more hardcore and harmful content. Help us call on the Information Commissioner to protect children from being targeted by the porn industry by donating to our campaign now.
We must ensure that porn sites aren’t targeting children’s data because 30 years of research has shown that porn has a profound impact on children’s social, emotional and cognitive development. Pornography breeds harmful attitudes towards women and girls, particularly among boys. It also increases sexual harassment against girls, objectification of women and regressive gender role attitudes.
Pornography harms children’s mental health and wellbeing as it increases the chances of high level distraction and risk of loneliness, depression and anxiety. Pornography also increases the level of social maladjustment amongst children.
The excuses the ICO has given for its failure to fulfil its regulatory duties are legally and factually flawed. What’s more, it has left children exposed to a profit-hungry industry which is intent on drawing children back again and again to watch violent and abusive pornographic material for its own financial gain.
As a small charity taking on this public body, we need your help to raise funds to acquire legal advice and prepare materials for our campaign.
