is a family friendly web directory. What we strive to provide is an index
where every site listed is rated according to its content. An environment for
conscientious web developers to list their sites enabling parents to effectively
select the content level they wish for themselves and their families to have access
to. The criteria for submission are:
1. All web sites
indexed here, regardless of content, MUST be PICS rated with ICRA
or SafeSurf, sometimes
both. If you're not familiar with PICS, please visit our developer's
page to learn more.
Mature discussion of adult subject matter is permitted but the following is now
- Glorification, manufacture or procurement of illegal drugs,
- Glorification, manufacture or procurement of illegal weaponry,
- Profanity and abusive language,
- Promotion of intolerance, hate and violence towards others,
- Online gambling.
to any of the above. 2
All sites making reference to mature subject
matter are screened by a human editor prior to addition to our index.
SURFSAFELY.COM reserves the right to choose which URLs appear
in our directory.
While we make diligent efforts to ensure all
sites listed here are rated appropriately, we may not be able to verify all of
it. In addition, some people may disagree over how content should be rated. That's
why you may see some content you think is adult content even if you use the PICS
filters. If that happens, please let us know by emailing us from our Feedback
page. SEE "DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES."

1) The term "illegal" shall be defined
by the existing federal laws of the Unites States of America.
2) "Site spamming" is the term used when users become bombarded with
numerous new browser windows just by going to a page and is a favorite tool of
porn predators. What then appears is entirely at the discretion of the web site
operator and often against our terms for inclusion in this directory. Sites given
to such practices, even though their material may be suitable, will be barred
from this directory until such time as they discontinue this practice. Our rule
of thumb for determining how much is too much will be - Only one pop-up window
allowed, pointing only to content within the same domain to material suitable
for our directory.
