Accreditation : Site Ratings

I am proud to provide this page in an effort to reassure parents that my site is friendly for the whole family. This page lists all the certifications that my site has received from well known and respected organisation who work toward helping to provide a safe and enjoyable experience on the web for all ages. Even though they certify that my site is suitable for the whole family to view, I strongly advocate that nothing can possibly be as safe for a child as viewing a web site with a responsible adult.

SafeSurf™

My site received the SafeSurf™ approval rating 22 July 2001

I discovered a problem in trying to access this site 14 August 2002.

An error message is returned:

HTTP 403.6 - Forbidden: IP address rejected Internet Information Services

This is just a brief description of the message. I have contacted SafeSurf™ on two occasions by email, asking clarification regarding this error. How ever as at the time of creating this page, no response has been received.

I have had FarCity Internet Solution look into this matter and attempt to access this site from a number of different IP addresses. The same error message was returned.

I have also had James S. Huggins attempt access to this site, but the same error message was returned.

I conclude, this is a technical problem at SafeSurf™. And as such I was unable to rectify this problem myself.

Should I receive a response from SafeSurf™ to my two emails, I shall update the information
here.

UPDATE: I have not received a response to my email correspondence, to date, however note that as of 22 August 2002 this site can be accessed.

UPDATE: I received a response 26 August 2002, to my correspondence. In brief, SafeSurf™ ISP went down. A result of a major crash during the replacement of new hard drives.
