You can find all information int the WTA Rules Book (from page 11 to page 28)
This is just the begin:
II. GOLD/SILVER EXEMPT PLAYERS
Select WTA Tour players will be chosen prior to the Tour Year as
Gold Exempt and Silver Exempt players (collectively “Exempt
Players”). Exempt Players have certain rights and obligations,
including the option to enter into Player Commitment Contracts with
the Tour and the obligation to commit to a specific number and level
of Tour Tournaments (see Section II.C.1 herein) during the Tour
Year.
A. GOLD EXEMPT PLAYERS
1. Composition and Order of Gold Exempt List (“GEL”)
a. The Gold Exempt List shall consist of up to 22 players
comprised as follows:
i. The 1-20 Gold Exempt List will be determined using a
hybrid formula determined 50% by WTA Tour Ranking
(Monday after US Open including Special Rankings)
and 50% by Marquee Value to create a Blended GEL.
Marquee Value shall be based on a vote of the Tier I,
Tier II and Tier III Tournaments. The Tour shall manage
the voting process, including all vote tabulation and
results. Any tie-breakers shall be determined by
awarding the higher listing on the Blended GEL to the
player with the higher ranking on the WTA Tour
Rankings (Monday after US Open).
ii. The Tournaments shall have the option of adding up to
two (2) additional players to the Gold Exempt List as
Wild Cards in the 14-20 grouping, provided the player
satisfies one (1) of the following three (3) criteria:
(a) She was among the Top 50 ranked singles players
as of the WTA Tour singles Rankings produced
immediately following the previous year’s US Open;
(b) She was among the Top 10 ranked singles players
as of the WTA Tour year-end Rankings from any
prior year; or
(c) She is the winner of a Grand Slam tournament
singles title.
d. The Worldwide Tournament Directors must complete the
Gold Exempt List voting no later than two (2) weeks after
the conclusion of the previous year’s US Open.
e. The #4 listed player on the Blended GEL will be determined
regionally by Tournament voting from among the players
who are listed 4-6 on the Blended GEL, provided the Player
Commitment Contract compensation for GEL Players 4-6 is
equal.


hope this answer to your question
