Sixty-five sites awarded "GPWA Approved Portal" seal
The new seal of approval program to recognize sites operated in accordance with the GPWA code of conduct was officially launched three weeks ago. Today we announce 30 new sites that have been awarded the right to display the seal, bringing the total number of sites approved thus far to 65. The program is designed to establish credibility for deserving websites through the use of a "GPWA Approved Portal" seal linked to a confirmation page that authenticates the seal and explains what it means.
