URL Categories

When doing a site category check, sites with categories like: image hosting, file hosting, social networks are classified by the main site regardless if checking for the root domain or sub URL because there's no way to know if the picture or file contains adult or malicious content, the decision whether to block or allow those categories will be made according to your mission statement and parent decision.

Kids safe index:

  • No - Contain content that is not appropriate for a child.
  • Yes - Doesn't contain content that is not appropriate for a child.
  • Depends - The category safety is determined by the view of the operator, for example some parents may choose to allow pirate sites, or require further filtering like search engine, or social sites.
  • Mixed - The category contains both safe and unsafe sites.
  • Danger - The category should be avoided even as an adult.

Contains nudity index:

  • No - Doesn't contain any nude or partial nude pictures
  • Light - No nude pictures, but can have pictures of people in underwear, bikinis, etc.
  • Yes - Contains nude pictures
  • Content isn't checked - Sites that either have self moderation (like youtube.com, facebook.com), or content isn't checked at all (like webmail)
  • Maybe - Category warrants blocking and presence of pictures isn't relevant, or it's a CDN site and can serve any content.
