We agree to fairly evaluate all sites/pages meeting our Criteria and we agree to post and promote any applicants who have won our award, by placing a link and description on our winners list.

We agree not to discriminate on grounds of race, gender, religion, handicaps, age, countries, or any other reason, which has nothing to do with submitting an application to the WWW Awards.

We agree to set forth an Awards Criteria and to adhere to same. 

We agree to evaluate web sites under the Criteria which was in place at the time application was submitted.  Should our criteria, change or become revised, any applicants who has previously, submitted an application, will be evaluated under the "old" criteria, guidelines, if they have won a previous award from us.

 We agree to assist any person requesting advice concerning ways of improving their sites. 

 It is a requirement that any Awards granted from this web site must be linked back to our web site in a method that will be outlined in Award notification e-mails.

We agree that we will not grant Awards to, or in any other manner endorse or promote, any web site that endorses, promotes or contains content which is considered globally to be illegal or discriminatory.

In order to comply with C.O.P.P.A. you must be at least 18 years of age to nominate a Website title.
