Web Professional Code of Ethics

Why this Matters

We encourage you to learn more about why an industry code of ethics matters for web professional workers. You will find our code of ethics below. If you are a member, we have a separate page/ link once you login to your account.

Have you agreed to our Web Professionals Code of Ethics for non-members? Make sure you check the box, provide your name and email, and click the accept button.

Professional organizations and associations throughout history establish standards of operation or minimum standards of conduct considered acceptable for the profession and the members they represent.

A generally agreed-upon Code of Ethics can define the overall aim of the profession and the ideals to which Web workers aspire.

Employers, Hiring Managers, Consumers and those that Hire Professional members have expectations.

  • Be open and truthful
  • Respect & Protect intellectual property
  • Be Responsive
  • Use Written Communications

Requests and Promises should always be in writing.

Despite best efforts, disputes can arise. A well-documented and agreed upon relationship serves both parties. Document all conversations about who does what and when, work to be performed, timelines, cost, and change orders.
