iBRANDZ Code of Conduct


iBRANDZ will not intentionally do harm to a client. This involves the continued use of any technology or procedure (without appropriate care) that is known to result in having the client site removed from search engine indexes or directories, or rendered inoperative. Questionable adherence to standards must be addressed via the Robots Exclusion Standard.
 

iBRANDZ will not intentionally violate any specifically published and enforced rules of search engines or directories. Should rules and guidelines change (as they often do), iBRANDZ will promptly take action to comply with the changes as they apply to all clients. Where rules and guidelines are unclear, iBRANDZ will seek clarification and await approval from the appropriate search engine before continuing to utilize potentially harmful technology or procedures.

iBRANDZ will not intentionally mislead, harm, or offend a consumer. All individuals utilizing a search engine to visit a site will not be misled by the information presented to or by the search engine, or harmed or offended upon arrival at the client site. This includes techniques like "bait and switch" where the client page does not substantially contain and is not clearly associated with the optimized phrase, or may be reasonably offensive to targeted visitors.

iBRANDZ will not intentionally violate any laws. This involves the deliberate and continued violation of copyright, trademark, servicemark, or laws related to spamming as they may exist at the state, federal, or international level.

iBRANDZ will not falsely represent the content of the client site. This includes the practice of presenting different versions of web pages to different users except where that information is altered solely to meet browser specifications and needs, sensitivity to regional factors such as language, or product specific needs. In general, ALL requests for a specific URL should be served identical HTML by the web server.

iBRANDZ will not  falsely represent others work as their own. This includes the taking of work from others in whole or in part and representing this work as their own. iBRANDZ will not make verbatim copies of the work of others (instead of authoring original work) without the prior consent of the other party.

iBRANDZ will not misrepresent their own abilities, education, training, standards of performance, certifications, trade group affiliations, technical inventory, or experiences to others. This includes quantifiable statements related to project timetables, performance history, company resources (staff, equipment, and proprietary products), and client lists. Guarantees will be restricted to items over which  iBRANDZ has significant and reasonable control.

iBRANDZ will not participate in a conflict of interest without prior notice to all parties involved. This includes the practice of choosing to emphasize one client over another in competing keywords because there is more personal gain for the practitioner. All clients are treated equally and all will receive equal best effort in their Search Engine Optimization.

iBRANDZ will not set unreasonable client expectations. This includes the practice of accepting more than a reasonable number of clients competing for the same keywords and implying that all will be in the top positions in the search engines. This also includes the implication that results can be obtained in an unreasonable amount of time given the known condition of the search engines, client site, and competition.

iBRANDZ will offer their clients both internal and external dispute resolution procedures. This includes the publishing of address and phone numbers on primary web pages, the inclusion of third-party dispute resolution links prominently placed within the practitioners web site, and contracts that include sections discussing dispute resolution.

iBRANDZ will protect the confidentiality and anonymity of their clients with regards to privileged information and items implying testimonial support for iBRANDZ. All staff of iBRANDZ shall be bound to protect information that is not generally known as it may harm the client. iBRANDZ will not include the publishing of testimonials and proprietary logos of client lists, press releases, and other collateral discussing the client without explicit approvals.
