Utah Child Protection Registry

  1. 1. Utah Child Protection Registry Utah’s Do-Not-Contact List for Families and Schools DoNotContact.Utah.gov
  2. 2. The Creation of the Child Protection Registry- Modeled after the National Do-Not-Call Registry, Utah leaders wanted to create a program that would allow families to proactively stop certain adult product advertisements.- Laws that support the Utah Child Protection Registry were passed in 2004 and the program became active in 2005.- The program was established to be administered by the Division of Consumer Protection and enforced in conjunction with the State Attorney General’s Office.
  3. 3. What is the Child Protection Registry- A state program that allows families and schools to stop adult product advertisements from reaching their inboxes.- Provided as a free service for Utah families and schools.- As of today there are over 400,000 registered addresses and numbers in Utah.- Every Utah School District is registered, including additional Charter and Private schools, educational institutions, and organizations who work with minors.
  4. 4. Contact Points Protected- Under the Utah Child Protection Registry, families can sign up their parental, family, and children’s: - E-mail Addresses - Mobile Phone Numbers (SMS) - Instant Messenger IDs - Fax Numbers
  5. 5. Adult Product Advertisement- Under the Utah Child Protection Registry statute, products or services that are illegal under Utah law for a minor to sell or purchase fall under the Registry laws. These include but are not necessarily limited to: - Alcoholic Beverages or Product - Any Form of Tobacco - Pornographic Materials - Illegal Drugs - Gambling Services
  6. 6. Schools / Educational Institutions- Schools and institutions that primarily serve those under 18 can register their domains.
  7. 7. Contacted After Registration- Senders have 30 days to remove a registered address and number from their advertising/solicitation lists.- Utahns who are registered have a 30 day grace period after registering until they will stop receiving adult product messages.- If they are contacted after 30 days by a marketer or with a message they believe should not be sent to their inbox, then they can submit a complaint to the Division of Consumer Protection.- This process helps the state contact any bad actors who are not complying with Registry laws.
