WorldGenWeb maintains very high standards in page creation, site management and overall quality of presentation for all associated project pages. It encourages freedom of expression, national cultural uniqueness and individual creativity by project hosts in the actual design of their pages. Certain elements are required, however, to help maintain the cohesiveness of the project.

All WorldGenWeb project sites share the same alpha-neumonic name and all projects must conform to this standard. Examples of project names are: New ZealandGenWeb or AustraliaGenWeb. Regional projects follow this same example: Northland, New ZealandGenWeb.

Regional projects must contain a link in the form of the logo provided below, to the New ZealandGenWeb project, located at

Copyright: WorldGenWeb encourages the collection and publication of non-copyrighted materials online by hosts. It will not pay royalities to any organisation or institution. Therefore, WorldGenWeb stipulates that all materials placed online at any project site be free from copyright infringement.

WorldGenWeb endeavours to maintain that all materials collected through associated project sites will not be distributed commercially. Country coordinators and project volunteers work on the honor system and it is assumed that materials placed online are free from any copyright infringement and that they will not be sold or republished in any form.

Individuals who submit data to any website are free to include the word "private" in place of any records or dates. This does dilute the value of the record submitted but the privacy rights of the individual are wholeheartedly supported.
