18 U.S.C 2257 Record-Keeping Requirements Compliance Statement
All models, actors, actresses and other persons that appear in any visual depiction of actual sexually explicit conduct appearing or otherwise contained in this Website were over the age of eighteen years at the time of the creation of such depictions. All content and images are in full compliance with the requirements of 18 U.S.C. 2257 and associated regulations. In compliance with the Federal Labeling and Record-Keeping Law (also known as 18 U.S.C. 2257), all models located within our domain were 18 years of age or older during the time of photography. The owners and operators of this Website are not the primary producer (as that term is defined in 18 USC section 2257) of any of the visual content contained in the Website. All models' proof of age is held by the custodian of records of their respective producers.
All other visual depictions displayed on this Website are exempt from the provision of 18 U.S.C. section 2257 and 28 C.F.R. 75 because said visual depictions do not consist of depictions of conduct as specifically listed in 18 U.S.C section 2256 (2) (A) through (D), but are merely depictions of non-sexually explicit nudity, or are depictions of simulated sexual conduct, or are otherwise exempt because the visual depictions were created prior to July 3, 1995.
AVMariaOzawa.com fully complies with 18 U.S.C. 2257 and the regulations promulgated thereunder. All models that appear in any visual depiction of actual sexually explicit conduct (as that term is defined in 18 U.S.C. 2256) appearing or otherwise contained in this website were at least eighteen years old at the time of the creation of such depictions. All other visual depictions displayed on this website are exempt from the record keeping requirements of 18 U.S.C. 2257 because those visual depictions do not consist of depictions of "sexually explicit conduct" as defined by 18 U.S.C. 2256, or are depictions of simulated sexual conduct, or are otherwise exempt because the visual depictions were created prior to July 3, 1995. The owners and operators of this website are not the primary producer (as that term is defined in 28 C.F.R. 75.1(c)(2)) of any of the visual content contained in this website. However, in recognizing the critical importance of preventing minors from appearing on the AVMariaOzawa.com website, AVMariaOzawa.com does not rely solely on the 18 U.S.C. 2257 representations of others, and therefore may have copies of records of the ages of those persons portrayed in any sexually explicit materials on this site. AVMariaOzawa will not release these records to anyone other than the attorney general of the united states or his designated representative, or as otherwise required by operation of law. In fulfilling its obligations under 18 U.S.C. 2257, AVMariaOzawa relies on the plain language of the statute and on the well-reasoned decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in Sundance Associates, Inc. v. Reno, 139 F.3d 804, 808 (10th Cir 1998), which held that entities which have no role in the "hiring, contracting for, managing, or otherwise arranging for the participation" of the models or performers, are exempt from the record-keeping requirements of 18 U.S.C. 2257.
The original records required pursuant to 18 U.S.C. section 2257 and 28 C.F.R. 75 for materials contained in the website are kept by the appropriate Custodian of Records as follows:
