ICPEN Rules Compliance

Rules for submitting business recommendations

When submitting this form, you represent yourself as an individual. We care about your rights and privacy. Please read these rules carefully, then check your information for spelling and press "Submit" below.

Each entry is moderated and will be verified for authenticity.

The Love & Peace Project LLC does not favor or make any special accommodations within this directory for current or previous sponsors. It strives to provide a neutral opportunity for businesses as well as consumers, regardless of their purchasing history.

Online submissions generate a separate Info Page for each business. Submissions from different individuals concerning the same business may merge with the existing page. Optional comments appear on the individual page of the recommended business, with newest one placed on top. Each comment or heart is always posted in association with the full name of commenter, and only if their required info was submitted along with it. Recommendations with incomplete information are not accepted.

The Love & Peace Project LLC will do everything within available means, to prevent maliciously posted comments and/or any comments and/or recommendations that are outside of ICPEN guidelines. Duplicate comments (from the same individual and/or IP address) will not be posted, unless they can be verified as separate incidents.

Unfavorable comments are allowed and will be published, unless they meet the criteria for illegal posts (see below). For each overall negative comment, the business receives a gray heart. Should these gray hearts approach or outnumber red ones, the business is sent a notification to reconcile. In case of no response, the business is re-evaluated and may be removed from the directory without further warning.

A previously removed business may reapply at a later time, once and as long as it has shown that all reasonable efforts were made to rectify the customers' reasons for complaints. Disputes may be resolved per each case, and upon discretion of the Love & Peace Project LLC.

**All active or previous sponsors, as well as businesses who posted current or previous ads, are included in the directory by default. However, the above rules for heart placements (consumer reviews) still apply, and they are strictly monitored and enforced.

Legal Notice and Disclaimer: We reserve the right to withhold entries that are offensive, irrelevant, derogatory or discriminating. Any submissions that appear to have been sponsored or paid for by a recommended business will not be permitted, and they shall be removed by the administration. The policy of the Love & Peace Project LLC is to adhere to international agreements on consumer protection.

Businesses: we retain the right to mention your business name and share your images on social media sites, as long as they are supportive of your marketing efforts and strategy.

b) Authenticity: you may comment only on those businesses which you have actually and personally had communicated or done business with.

Heart & Dove Awards

Definition and Purpose

The Heart & Dove Awards are the ceremonial induction into the "Love & Peace Hall of Fame". They were established to

            a) raise awareness about the urgent need for a kinder society

            b) honor those who understand humanity and act as role models to inspire others


Eligibility

No purchase necessary. Eligible for nomination are any or all individuals, whether residing inside the United States or abroad.

The Love & Peace Project does not discriminate against race, gender, religious beliefs, political affiliation, sexual preference, ethnicity or origin.

Nominations

All nominations are accepted that have met the necessary requirements as established on the official entry form (See Nominating Form). The form may be submitted either via mailed letter or electronically, as long as it is received prior to December 31st of the current year. All nominations that are received after this date will be entered for the following year.

Chances of winning a prize for suggesting someone will increase with each nomination. Individuals may nominate as many persons as they wish, as often as they wish. However, only one prize drawing entry per suggested "act of kindness" story is permitted. Multiple stories of one person are ok, but they must be separate incidents.

Love & Peace Ambassadors and Judges may be nominated as award recipients, however they are discouraged from voting on their own nomination.

The founder of the Love & Peace Project as well as her immediate family members are excluded from nominations for the Heart & Dove Awards, the Love & Peace Hall of Fame and the BM Initiative, and is not eligible to win any prize.

Categories

Each person may be nominated for the category that provides the best match. In case someone gets nominated in more than one category, the judges or a legal/official representative of the Love & Peace Project LLC may have the right to eliminate a nominee from inappropriate categories, or find placement in another category instead.

In case of a category remaining without any nomination, it will be left unfilled (not awarded). For more provisions, see "Awards" below.

Below are the current categories. If necessary, more categories may be added over time.

1.) Outstanding Friends - People you know: your Friends, Family, Neighbors, Social Media Friends

2.) Community Superstars - Those you know about, but don't know in person

3.) Junior Leaders - All people under the age of 18 years

4.) Disadvantaged V.I.D.s (very important do-gooders) - A most significant category! Those down on their luck, but still manage to help others, or stand up for peaceful solutions. They may be in an unfortunate position, disabled, homeless, in prison or very ill

5.) Local Business Owners - Small to mid sized business owners (or general managers) who "do the right thing"

6.) Public Service Personnel - Nurses, Journalists, Doctors, Policemen, Firemen, Teachers, Attorneys et al.

Judging

Voting counts: by popular vote and by judges. In case of a tie, the judges' votes take precedence.

            Group A: votes from Panel of Judges count towards individual awards. The judges vote on ONE category each to which they are assigned, plus a second category that's chosen at random. From February 1 through February 15, all winners from popular votes will be reviewed and either confirmed or dismissed by the panel of judges.

            Group B: total votes from General Public count towards the individual category awards. Each eligible voter may vote for one person per category.

Process:

Voting occurs after the nomination deadline. During the entire month of January, each eligible voter may cast their ballot.

The judges' final decision will be made from February 1 through February 15.

Criteria:

It is recommended that judging should be made based on the overall merit. This will not necessarily mean that a nominee has to positively affect a great number of people directly through their action, in order to win in his or her category.

However, special consideration is to be given to those who can influence a wider base of people, therefore become an example on how to imitate their kind behavior. Meaning, it has more weight when being looked towards it as an inspiration for guidance.


Voting

Voting always begins January 1st and ends midnight of January 31st.

Each eligible voter may vote for one person per category. Multiple entries per nominee from the same voter will be counted as ONE vote. If a voter enters more than one person per category, this category will be disqualified from that voter and does not count as a valid entry.


Time Lines

The nominations are being accepted throughout the year.

 - Nominations: from January 1st to December 31st of any year

 - Voting: from January 1st to January 31st of the following year

 - Confirmation: from February 1st to February 31st by the panel of judges

 - Disputes: in case of any disputes regarding the entries, process or voting, the recommendation by the panel of judges is binding. Resolution to be achieved by the end of February.

 - Awards Banquet and Ceremony: any time during the month of March, following the voting. Exact date and time TBA, on the "Awards Dinner" page.


Awards

ONE winner will be awarded per category in which nominees were submitted. It is upon the discretion of the judges and/or a legal/official representative of the Love & Peace Project LLC to move a nominee into a different category, provided it matches the description of the nominee and/or increases the chances of winning an award.

The induction shall be permanent.

Award Ceremony always in March of the following year.

All non-winning entries to be placed and remain in the BM Initiative section. They may be re-submitted the following year(s).


Prizes for Inductees
