GAC Web Awards Code of Ethics

I, JetWhiz, Owner of all Awards Programs held at the GAC Web Awards web site, do hereby declare on behalf of myself and any other evaluator(s) who may be contracted at any time by GAC Web Awards to evaluate for any GAC Web Awards-sponsored award program, that we agree to advance and promote the Web Site Evaluator Code of Ethics in order to ensure fairness to all applicants and to maintain the honor and integrity of applicants, evaluators and awards.

  •   We agree that all critiques given will be constructive in nature as positive comment is productive. We will refrain from criticism unless specifically requested by an applicant, and in such instances, will remain positive where possible in an effort to promote goodwill and advance the level of quality among internet sites.

  •   We agree to allow eligibility to all applicants who meet the set criteria of any particular award. We agree to be uniform in our eligibility requirements (criteria) and will fairly evaluate all sites/pages meeting our criteria which are submitted by any applicant. We further agree to clearly post these criteria.

  •   We agree not to discriminate on grounds of race, gender, nation of origin, religion, profession, age, mental or physical handicap, or any other reason which is not globally viewed as an illegal trait or manner of conduct.

  •   We agree to set forth awards criteria and to adhere to same. Proposed time frames for changes will be posted for two (2) weeks prior to the final publishing of same with notices posted on site so all potential applicants can view and understand the proposed changes.

  •   We agree to evaluate web sites under the criteria which was in place at the time of any and/or all applications. If changes are made to criteria AFTER application(s) is/are received, the submitted site(s) will be evaluated using the criteria that was in effect when applicant(s) initially submitted the site(s).

  •   We agree to immediately inform any criteria compliant applicant in writing, of a 'Refrain to Evaluate' if it is found that a conflict of interest would occur in evaluating their web site - e.g., such may occur upon being requested to evaluate the web site of a good friend. We will offer such applicant a choice of evaluator taken from our membership listing.

  •   We agree to maintain a professional, friendly and positive manner in any and/or all correspondence and/or communication held with any applicant(s).

  •   We agree to evaluate all submitted sites within two (2) weeks of receipt of submission. If this deadline cannot be met, we agree to suspend submissions until we can again work within this timeframe.

  •   We agree not to divulge any information about any applicant to persons, groups, or agencies not directly connected to our awards programs, and only then for the purpose of evaluating submissions and notifying winners. All information received from any applicant via e-mail submission or submission form will be deemed private.

  •   We agree to encourage and promote the use of original material for awards programs criteria and evaluation processes. We agree to assist any person requesting advice concerning ethical evaluation for and disbursement of awards. PLEASE NOTE: The awards evaluation processes in use at GAC Web Awards are copyrighted material and written authorization is required for their use.

  •   We agree to maintain any owned individual web site(s) that include awards program(s) to a standard that meets the criteria of the award(s) given. In the case of any award(s) offered that is/are OUTSIDE the main subject of our web site(s), any and/or all such web site(s) will be maintained to a high standard of integrity in all its/their main areas.

  •   We agree to maximum dimensions of awards given in courtesy of web sites that will use them. If the maximum dimensions cannot be adhered to then a text only link will be permitted for graphics larger than maximum size. (Maximum size dimensions offered by GAC Web Awards are: 200 pixels height and 175 pixels width.)

  •   We agree that there will be only one obligation for winning awards from this web site beyond meeting the criteria. It is not, and never will be, mandatory at GAC Web Awards to sign a guest book or to join a mailing list. It is a requirement that any awards presented by GAC Web Awards must be linked back to GAC Web Awards in a method that will be outlined in award notification e-mails and/or award retrieval page.

  •   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 whether same be against human or wildlife.

  •   we agree that we will not accept favors of any sort in exchange for preferential treatment of submissions. we will at all times maintain a high standard of honesty and integrity.

  •   We agree that we will take all measures necessary to maintain the honor and integrity of our awards programs.
