Hello, I have been told by an adult family member trying to access my website that it is being blocked to them due to age restrictions. Please note however that my website is an illustration portfolio as I am a UK based freelance illustrator, and certainly doesn’t contain any inappropriate or adult material. This is a concern to me that potential clients will not be able to access my site, particularly as my illustration work is geared towards children’s publishers. Could I please therefore ask that my website is unblocked. Kind Regards, Hannah Tooke

Original Complaint: ------------------- I am the owner of this website. I have owned and run Pink Giraffe as a sole trader since 2007. A few years ago I started making dance costumes and selling them on my website. Some of my customers were competitive pole dancers. I never sold anything remotely adult in nature, but obviously pole dancing does have some affiliation with the adult entertainment industry. I believe this is why my website may have been marked as 'adult content' even though it isn't. I am no longer making dance costumes because I am physically disabled, but I am still running Pink Giraffe. I am now a business advisor to other dance costume makers, hoping them with their marketing. I would like to request that the adult filters be removed from my website as they never should have been put there in the first place. During the beginning of the Covid pandemic I was making and selling face masks for people. A number of my customers were unable to access my website to buy their masks and this affected my sales. It is only today that I have discovered the website blocked.org.uk and been able to make this request. Please could you remove my website from the adult filters so that I can continue to reach my customers without fear that they think I am publishing adult content. Thank you. submitted on 12 April, 2021 at 14:48 ISP Response: ------------- Review comments: ----------------

There is no reason at all why this site should be blocked as it is on a Shopify platform and is very secure.

Dear Sir/Madam, I have spent over 2 years building my website for selling my artwork (launching within weeks). I was so disheartened to receive messages/emails from people (one being my dad sadly) who's providers are BT and VirginMedia to say my site is blocked and that they can't access it. I would be so truly grateful to have my site unblocked by yourselves, I have worked so hard these past few years and don't want anything to effect my venture before it's even begun. Kind regards, Sarah Mauchline
