Here are some of the consequences of not complying with the new Digital Economy Act 2017:
Blocked by ISP All UK Internet Service Providers (ISP) will block non-compliant sites if demanded by the regulator, which means your site will not be accessible in the UK.
Blocked Payments The regulator can request that your Payment Service Provider withdraws their services, effectively removing your ability to process payments, globally.
Indexation and Accounts Removed Anyone facilitating the distribution or advertising of non-compliant sites can be asked by the regulator to withdraw their services. E.g. Search Engines, domain registrars, advertisers, social networks, forums, blogs, community hubs, etc.
Financial Penalties The age-verification regulator may impose a financial penalty on a non-compliant site of up to £250,000 or 5% of their qualifying revenue.
