Korijs, there are 2 ad banners: one of an affiliate service (the big ad) and the uCoz ad banner (below the big ad). Both are placed by uCoz, and they are considered as an ad.

In my opinion no, does uCoz know what age visitors are visiting uCoz hosted websites with ads unless they have an extension like adblock.

Hit that "Thanks" button. :)

The content of the banner varies for different users. But of course the best way to ensure that site visitors don't see any ads they might not like is to remove the banner. Besides paid removal, the ad banner can be hidden by using Ad Block or the Uran browser from uCoz.

Dody, please provide the URL of the website where you saw the ad banner in the bottom right corner. uCoz DOES NOT place banners with pornographic content on users' websites. It is possible though that one of advertisers we are working with put it without our knowledge, in this case it will be removed asap.

Sunny, i have the screenshot from this user http://uid.me/marius_catalin87 , i don't know the website and i don't care... as uCoz don't care about us.
We will disappear like magic after this. You think we will step back and watch you how our websites are transformed into pornographyc ad farms.

Dody, it has been confirmed that the ad was placed by one of our advertising partners without our consent. We are now working to remove the ad and revise the contract with the advertiser. We are sorry for the inconvenience that it caused you, but uCoz itself never places pornographic banners on uCoz websites. This banner was an unpleasant surprise for our company as well.

Hello,

What happened? Yesterday I barely had an ad or two but today it's full of them, there's even a floating one that's completely annoying.
And by the way I don't mind ads once in a while (I like supporting free websites), but permanent ads full of malware, viruses and unrelated shit that keep coming after each link I press on my website really pisses me off. I mean...I can't even press X to close them and it will still send me on a shit website telling me how to loose weight or how to get bigger boobs, all that's missing is viagra and penis enlargement wonder pills ads to make this even better.
I'm all ok with an ad in a corner but I don't like the people visiting my website to think that they landed on a porn website.
Please do something about this, it's way too intrusive because I'm really considering finding an alternative to uCoz

Personally, I use adblock, but after viewing my site from my phone, I'm in the same predicament as you. It will keep sending me to the app store, and I can only imagine my users' frustration.

I'm using adblock aswell, at first I thought it was adblocks fault and I have reinstalled it...with no success. The adblock does manage to block the ads but uCoz added those stupid floating boxes which are generated when the website is open. Spent 3 hours yesterday trying to block them from showing with no success.

Unfortunately yes, unless they remove the ads I'll move to another platform.
