Seven Principles of Business Integrity
NotBarter.com subscribes to the following principles, which are (in slightly edited form) those propounded by business consultant Robert Moment. For a further discussion, see Mr. Moment's article here. Read more about NotBarter.com here.

Principle 1: Recognize that customers/clients want to do business with a company they can trust. When trust is at the core of a company, it's easy to recognize. Trust is defined as assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of a business.

Principle 2: For continuous improvement of a company, the leader of an organization must be open to ideas for betterment. Ask for opinions and feedback from both customers and team members and your company will continue to grow.

Principle 3: Regardless of the circumstances, do everything in your power to gain the trust of past customers and clients, particularly if something has gone awry. Do what you can to reclaim any lost business by honoring all commitments and obligations.

Principle 4: Reevaluate all materials to make sure they are clear, precise and professional, and, most important, do not misrepresent or misinterpret.

Principle 5: Remain involved in community-related issues and activities, thereby demonstrating that your business is a responsible community contributor. 

Principle 6: Take a hands-on approach to accounting and record keeping, not only as a means of gaining a better feel for the progress of your company, but as a resource for any questionable activities. Gaining control of accounting and record keeping allows you to end any dubious activities promptly.

Principle 7: Treat others with respect and courtesy, regardless of viewpoints, positions, titles, ages, or other distinctions.
