Elite Email Marketing Partners with Registry Compliance and Protect MI Child

Toronto, ON, and New York, NY (PRWEB) November 20, 2007

Elite Email Marketing software (EliteEmail.com) and Unspam Registry Services, Inc. (RegistryCompliance.com) have joined forces to protect children from adult-oriented emails. Elite Email Marketing is the latest partner to join the Registry Compliance program, which works to ensure email senders comply with the various child protection state registry laws.

The Elite Email Marketing software powers business email marketing campaigns for a wide variety of clients. Some of these clients use email marketing to promote their wineries, tobacco shops and other adult-oriented businesses. Recently, states like Michigan and Utah have instituted laws that prohibit these businesses from sending commercial emails to children.1

“While pornography and offensive content have always been strictly prohibited through our direct email marketing solution, we do have valued clients that operate legitimate adult-oriented businesses. We feel it is particularly important to protect children from these commercial emails,” says Robert Burko, president of EliteEmail.com. “Our partnership with Registry Compliance allows us to assure our clients they will never risk sending adult targeted emails to children in the states that have instituted this important registry.”

Elite Email Marketing’s partnership with Registry Compliance allows the databases of all EliteEmail.com customers operating in adult-targeted markets to be checked against the state registries, and all registered children to be removed from the databases automatically.

“We are proud to welcome Elite Email Marketing into our network of compliance partners,” says Eric Langheinrich, CTO of Unspam Registry Services. “It is great to see that more and more email marketing software providers are taking action to protect America’s children.”

1 In July of 2005, the U.S. states of Michigan and Utah became the first to establish children’s protection registries. These registries are secure collections of e-mail addresses, instant messenger IDs and other types of addresses that are protected from receiving adult-oriented messages.

Family Acceptance Project Family Education Materials Designated 1st Best Practice Resources For Suicide Prevention For LGBT Youth By National Registry

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2012

With media reports of suicide among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth becoming increasingly common, communities are grappling with the urgent need to identify interventions to prevent suicide and suicidal behavior among LGBT youth. However, until today, no Best Practices have been identified or designated to help reduce vulnerability and risk among LGBT children, youth or adults.

Although recent media attention has focused primarily on the impact of bullying on self-harm behavior. suicide is typically the result of many interacting factors including depression, substance use and despair, in addition to environmental stressors. These complex interactions underscore the need for comprehensive suicide prevention strategies and interventions to change the environment at the systems level. For LGBT youth, family systems are especially important.

For the past decade, the Family Acceptance Project (FAP) at SF State University, under the direction of Dr. Caitlin Ryan, has been studying the impact of family acceptance and rejection on suicide risk among LGBT youth. Published findings from these studies point to the critical role of families in both contributing to and protecting against suicidal behavior and risk among LGBT young people. FAPs multi-disciplinary team has been developing resources, interventions and strategies to help diverse families reduce risk and to promote their LGBT childrens well-being.

The first of these resources a multi-lingual, multi-cultural series of family education booklets Supportive Families, Healthy Children: Helping Families Support their LGBT Children have been designated as the first Best Practice resources for suicide prevention for LGBT youth and young adults by the national Best Practices Registry for Suicide Prevention.

Coordinated by the Suicide Prevention Resource Center (SPRC) and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and known as the SPRC/AFSP Best Practices Registry for Suicide Prevention, the registry designates and maintains an expert-reviewed compendium of approved best practices to prevent suicide, all of which address specific aims of the national suicide prevention plan and have met objective criteria based on accuracy, safety, likelihood of meeting suicide prevention objectives, and adherence to prevention guidelines.

Available in specific cultural versions in English, Spanish and Chinese, Supportive Families, Healthy Children education booklets were developed based on extensive research and direct feedback from families, LGBT youth and the providers who serve them. The booklets help ethnically and religiously diverse families understand how specific reactions to their childrens LGBT identity both contribute to and protect against risk for suicide and related health problems. Research-based guidance for families is depicted non-judgmentally using personal stories, lists of behaviors that both protect against and are related to high risk for suicide and other serious health problems, and approaches to decrease family conflict and to increase support. FAPs core research and family education materials were supported by The California Endowment, a health foundation dedicated to expanding access to affordable, quality health care for underserved individuals and communities.

Said, Dr. Caitlin Ryan, Director of the Family Acceptance Project: Our work is grounded in rigorous research and rooted in the cultural experiences and values of scores of diverse LGBT youth and families. So these family education booklets resonate for very diverse families and help them decrease rejecting behaviors which our research shows — though motivated by care and concern instead contribute to serious health risks for LGBT young people. For example, our research shows that common rejecting behaviors such as trying to prevent LGBT youth from learning about their identity, not allowing them to have gay friends or not letting them participate in an LGBT youth group are related to a 9-times greater likelihood of attempted suicide.

In discussing the importance of FAPs family education materials, Dr. Ann Haas, Director of Prevention Projects for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, noted: For the past decade, Dr. Ryan and her team have undertaken foundational research on the role of families and related social institutions in contributing to protective factors and risk for suicidal behavior among LGBT young people. They have turned that research into powerful prevention tools for diverse families. Used in programs across the country, these tools will save lives.

More than 100,000 copies of the family education booklets have been disseminated across the U.S. and other countries for use in schools, primary care and behavioral health programs, foster care and juvenile justice services, family service agencies, suicide prevention programs, and in pastoral counseling and faith-based organizations. Additionally, the booklets are used in colleges, universities and professional training programs and by government agencies.

Agencies and community groups that use the Family Acceptance Projects Best Practice materials and family intervention approach report substantial positive changes in prevention and practice:

Reverse Mobile Search for Unlisted Numbers Added Online to Cell Phone Registry

Detroit, Michigan (PRWEB) December 27, 2012

Cell Phone Registry has added an unlisted reverse mobile phone number search tool to its website online. This new tool is helping to locate unpublished and unlisted numbers through this new database. This service is now offered as an alternative to a regular Caller ID system that could be incomplete or have outdated data. The new search tool available here is now available for adults to use online.

Over 300 million mobile phone subscribers now exist in the U.S. according to mobile data. These users make calls, send texts and some can lookup information from a mobile browser. Privacy acts in some U.S. states allow a person to opt-out of communication mailing lists and other actions that could make phone numbers available to the public.

The CellPhoneRegistry.com website is helping to provide its database of numbers as a secondary option to other types of phone lookup companies. The information that is gathered, sorted and stored inside of the new company database is acquired from private and from public sources. There are now over 200 million numbers that are marked as unlisted, unknown or unpublished in other caller identification databases.

The new reverse phone search tool for unlisted numbers can be used in more than one way. As a lookup tool, the data that is supplied can be used to screen calls that come in to a person’s phone. Numbers that do not display on cellular Caller ID systems can be searched online. A person that receives prank calls or suspicious phone calls could now use the search tool to retrieve phone carrier information, mailing address and first or last name data of a caller.

Parents can search the phone records of a minor child that is on a shared phone plan using this new tool available. An assortment of criteria can be used to search for the owner of a number using this new system. A premium plan is now offered that makes it possible to search unlimited records for an entire year. This affordable plan is a cost effective solution to have the protection that these public records can provide.
