“Doing the Right Thing: How Electronic Age Verification Protects Children Online” tackles the complicated subject of age verification and the risks businesses face by not using an age and identity verification solution.

“As a society we have established and live by a set of rules designed to keep merchandise and services intended for adults out of the reach of children. Yet, on the Internet, it is a different story. Many people think that age verification technology doesn’t exist, when the reality is such solutions are currently helping protect businesses in several industries concerned with protecting children online,” said John Dancu, IDology’s CEO and a recognized subject matter expert for age verification. “Our goal is to educate people on how this technology works and provide the tools they need to understand the market and the risks associated with not performing age verifications in their business.”
