The organization and our goals

We have developed policies to help global internet users, domain name holders and registry operators address such issues as: parental controls around online sexual content; accurate domain registration information; child abuse imagery; and privacy and consumer rights.

We are currently developing educational materials aimed at providing teachers, parents and children with pragmatic and effective tools to understand and address online sexual content and activity.

IFFOR’s Goals

  • Promote user choice, parental control, and the development and adoption of responsible business practices designed to combat online child abuse images.
  • Protect free expression rights as defined in the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 19.
  • Protect the privacy, security, and consumer rights of consenting adult consumers.
  • Foster communication among Internet stakeholders.

IFFOR develops specific policies according to the provisions of it’s Bylaws through a three-step process: conducting a structured Policy Development Process, establishing Baseline Policies, and responding to issue reports initiated by the IFFOR Policy Council.
